RAMBLING THOUGHTS ON MY POLITICAL VIEW

I am a Christian first of all. My conscience and intent will always defer to the Word of God, the words of Jesus Christ. I am a politcal conservative and I uphold the Constitution of the United States and the Bill of Rights on which this nation was founded. I believe that drastic change in our political environment is needed, which all those with political interest will agree. However, I believe the necessary and successful change can be brought about without disregard and revocation of our Constitution and patriotism. Why throw out the baby with the bath water?

I believe I am being stereotyped as a Christian conservative because I do not agree with our President of the United States, Barach O'Bama. I am convinced he is a narcissist with his own agenda which is not in the best interest of America. I am not a racist. I love and befriend people of any gender, race, creed, or orientation. The fact is, Barach O'Bama is not African-American at all. He is Bi-racial, just as much Caucasian as he is African. If he were totally Caucasian my opinion of him would not be any different than it is at this moment. I was profoundly disappointed when Herman Cain was blasted out of the GOP running for past moral indisgressions. Like no other political figure has ever committed such an atrocity! I would have voted for him had he been nominated as the GOP candidate. I am now praying that Mitt Romney will choose Condoleezza Rice as his running mate for the 2012 election. Let's get real here, whether we like it or not, this would be a "racial" advantage because the current administration, all of it, and voters alike have made much of the political issues about race.

I remember in December of 2008 when George Bush was speaking at a press conference in Bagdad, Iraq at the Prime Minister's Palace. An Iraqi journalist took off both his shoes and threw them at George Bush, who had to sway and duck to keep from being hit in the head. This action of throwing one's shoe at another in the middle east region is a derogatory gesture meaning "You dog." Muntadhar al-Zaide, the Iraqi who threw the shoes was taken to the floor by another Iraqi journalist and then removed from the building and let go. Later George Bush was asked to comment on the incident. He said, "I didn't have much time to reflect on anything, I was ducking and dodging. I'm not angry with the system. I believe that a free society is emerging, and a free society is necessary for our own security and peace"; he added, "I don't think you can take one guy throwing his shoes as representative of the people of Iraq." I wonder what would happen if someone threw a shoe at Barach O'Bama as he spoke in a public press conference. More than likely it would be seen as a "hate crime." The responsible party would be taken into custody and several million dollars or more would be appropriated to increase security for Mr. O'Bama and his family. Same act, two different American presidents, two very likely different responses.

I am disappointed that I am stereotyped as an O'Bama hater, NoBama, Bible thumper, rebeller against change, supporting inaction rather than change, being a racist because I do not think Barach O'Bama is a good president, being supportive of protecting the rich elite, and being responsible for the tragic state of the decaying American society. I am seen as one who has been duped by right wing scare tactics like I don't take the time to educate myself on all political views.

I respect the right of every American to have a political view, even if it differs from mine. I'm just asking that mine be respected. Isn't that what Democracy is all about? Or am I being pigeon holed by far left liberals who want to live in a Socialist society?

Thanks for letting me ramble on with my thoughts and beliefs. God bless America!

I share your political view. As Christians, we cannot support a president who advocates and practices what this president does.

Your daily devotions are very meaningful to me, and I appreciate your providing them.
