I am extremely saddened by the election outcome. However, in the end it may be better for our nation to implode with the nuclear blast it is heading toward under Obama than to slowly burn under moderate Republican power. Just a few random thoughts to write out and then I will let it go and get back to life and my family.
--Americans do not like change and voted for the status quo.
--It is truly unfortunate that more than half our nation chose the slavery of government provision and intervention over freedom. I guess free healthcare, welfare, and continued bailouts won the day.
--The real loser in this election was religious freedom. There is no turning back now. After four years of Obamacare and the HHS mandate they will be nearly impossible to repeal. It's also looking more and more like gay marriage is a done deal. It's been said this election's primary issue was the economy. I believe it is easier to repeal bad fiscal policy than it is to regain moral ground. I'm afraid the Christian Right lost a huge battle last night.
--Finally, it should not be lost on anyone of the Judeo-Christian tradition
that the inauguration falls conspicuously and significantly close to the 40 year anniversary of the Roe v Wade decision.
