Barak Blues

"Oh the tears are aflowing
Evah since I heard the news.
My heart is so broken...
In pain from head right to my shoes.
You ask me what the heck's the mattah?
I got those Barak Obama Blues!!!"

The last month has been an emotional roller coaster ride for me. After recovering from the trauma of my Father's death, I had to suffer another loss on November 4th: The death of America as we know it and the election of Obama.

Although I was not a "McCain guy," the major determinants of my vote are the issues of life: especially unborn life. McCain is reasonably pro-life..Obama? Well "the issue of life is above my pay grade," said he.

As if that were not enough, he carries with him enough socialist baggage to change this country for the rest of my life, anyhow! On the matter of life, it is shocking to read that 52% of those calling themselves Roman Catholic voted for Obama. Raymond Arroyo of Eternal Word Network reported that sources who should know claimed that Obama got the vote of a majority of American Catholic Bishops. If that is the case, there has never been so much heresy among the bishops since the Arian Heresy of the 2nd century when almost 95% of the bishops were under the influence of the smooth talking, messianic persona of Arius.

And so, I have declared myself to be an "OFZ" (Obama Free Zone). I do not want to see him...I do not want to hear him...I do not want to even think about him for the next four years. This will not be easy since he seems more omnipresent that all those pictures of Joe Stalin in Russia and Mao Tse Dong in China. However, since I am a Christian and in obedience to the Sacred Scriptures, I will pray for the SOB!

I am so sorry you feel that way, Obama is the best hope our country. Please pray for him, I am sure he would encourage you to do so. Please refrain from calling him names though, that is unAmerican and childish.

Perhaps I was being childish. Though I have no way of knowing, before this man's days are done, you will wish you had your vote back.

Isn't it astounding? Our father at the church said during the homily that our nation faced great historical moments and to always vote for life. I however, do not think that he voted that way. There have been some blogging about his pro-Obama support. Anyhow, I also share your fear of socialism....when weighing the candidates I voted for democracy and small government verses socialism. I promise you are not alone in your thoughts.

There is a scripture and Of course I can't find it. It's in 1st or
2nd Cor. But it says their is no Government put in charge that God does not allow. This is somehow in His plan and we have to trust him. I may not trust Obama but I do trust God.

Thanks for the response. I Peter 2 (13) also instructs the faithful to "be subject to every human institution whether it be the emperor as supreme or governors as sent by Him... for it is God's Will that doing right, YOU SHOULD PUT TO SILENCE THE IGNORANCE OF FOOLISH MEN." I think the emperor at the time was Nero. Not a nice guy. Yes, you are correct. Our trust must be in The Lord into whose loving hands we hope to fall.
