I don't typically write about politics on my blog. Jared told me that if I do I'll lose readers. He's speaking from experience since he regularly writes about his beliefs and political stands on his blog. I promise to make it brief.
I'm just so frustrated by the Presidential debate last night. Jared and I always watch those and I was hoping to see...well...something. All we got was a snooze fest which included a McCain bail out for all of those who bought outside their means and can't afford their houses.
I am a conservative and have had a lot of reservations with the 700 billion dollar bail out and I'm obviously not a fan of Obama with his socialist views including bigger government and his pro-abortion position.
What's a girl like me to do? Jared and I bought a house that we could afford and then worked our stinking tails off making it livable. When the market was high we had the opportunity to sell it for a ridiculous profit and move into a less affordable fancier home, but we decided to make the conservative decision to stay put into a home we loved that was just right, not too big. Why should all of those who made poor decisions get bailed out? And...Get bailed out by those of us who made wise choices, the tax payers in general.
I asked Jared last night if it were goofy to pray for this election since the bible clearly states that all public leaders are ultimately under His control and He can use them for His will. I told him that even though I disagree with McCain on this extended bail out plan there are bigger issues with Obama. My gut reaction to last night was, "Save the babies."
As Christians our position in this election boils down to life and death. Obama has voted for and stands for pro-abortion and infanticide.
I don't agree with McCain on everything but he is pro-life and he will appoint pro-life judges that will affect abortion for future generations. I will pray, I will pray that even though McCain is not my perfect candidate that he and Palin would still be elected if for no other reason than to save the babies.
