Black Tuesday

As most of you know, I was a John McCain fan. I worked for two months in campaigning, from making phone calls, to recruiting supporters, to organizing trips, and the culminating 5 day trip to Nevada to try and swing the state for McCain. I would've preferred he win on Tuesday last. Obviously, he didn't. While I admit that the country rising above our history and tradition of racism and prejudice to elect a half African American to be our President is historic and praiseworthy, I'm bitter.

Among many reasons why I'm frustrated with Obama's election is that I feel he will continue to foster the growing culture of entitlement that is spreading across America. If and when we get back to conservative values (like electing a Republican President) how will we reverse this frustrating, stunting ideology?

The great Mitt Romney once said, "Dependancy is death to intiative, to risk-taking and opportunity. Dependency is culture killing. It's a drug. It's time to stop the spread of government dependency and fight it like the poison it is."

Spreading the wealth, increased welfare, more and more socialist ideals....It gives me heartburn. Can't take it. But the worst is thinking about how many people today are growing up where they see nothing wrong with these values, these socialist values.
It really comes down to basic difference in morals and beliefs. How do you change someone's moral values? It's all very frustrating....

Kara and I call November 4th "Black Tuesday" because it was a disappointing, almost devastaing day for America. Obviously, people will think we are racist. But, I promise, race has nothing to do with it. The state of my political soul, is a better indicator of the name.

I am upset about it too. I voiced that to you in my email earlier today. But, I couldn't even watch the news that night it just made me sick. I was praying the entire time. I agree that our country has come a long ways as far as the racism goes. So, in that sense I think that it is neat. But, in all the other ways I am sadden and very nervous. It should be interesting to say the least. Anyways, I think I have bugged you enough one day with my email, comment on here, and my comment on facebook.
