I am very thankful for Mr. Barack Obama. I am an African-American woman and this is the first election I will be voting in. I am a firm believer in God, and though Mr. Obama and I differ in our faiths, I can't help but say that God has a hand in this. I was so upset when I heard some idiots killed a black bear and wrapped it in Obama posters. That was an indirect threat to him and they should be ashamed. Are they going to get any time or a fine?
Everyone wants to give McCain a pat on his back because he was a POW. Well, that is all well and good, we know he defended our country at some point--but if he does not give the people in the middle and lower classes a hand, doesn't he know that upper class will fall also!? I just happened to be one of the many Americans who did not have a silver spoon in my mouth upon my birth. What about those in the service industry? The housekeepers, gardeners,cashiers and so on who are trying to feed a family? Where do they turn? What happens to them when they can't rely on the food pantry to give out enough rations for them to survive, even with the added money from their paychecks? Where do they go? What about when they are sick and hurt, and can't afford to go to the hospital? What then?
Also why, if he does, would he support these other issues like gay marriages? When they passed the rights for lesbians and gays to legally marry, it felt like the world was coming to an end.We are indeed living in perilous times. Where in the Bible do you ever remember reading men joined together in a marital format? You won't! The Bible has remained true over the course of time and will be the rock this world will pray it can lean on in the end times. God has not changed His Word and He will not change! Nor will He change his Holy Word! It is us who must fall in line! So if it takes what some of you see as a threat to fix what Bush tore down, give Obama the hammer and nails!
