Well...at least it's over (except here)
I don't talk about politics much, but I'm going to get this off my chest.
I'm wishing the election had gone differently. I know that McCain and Palin would have been better for the country, but we can't change what happened. Some things that I'll be praying for:
1) The safety of American troops here and abroad as well as all Americans. I worry that the country won't be as safe with Obama as commander-in-cheif (and Biden said there will be an international incident in the first six months).
2) The lives of the unborn and that God will place adoption the mothers who have unplanned pregnancies. Obama's administration will likely remove the few restrictions that are currently placed on abortion, so those who want to protect life will have to work to change the minds of the women (and their boyfriends/husbands) considering abortions.
3) That the economy will be able to recover despite the problems that Obama's economic policies will cause. The change in the tax rate after the Bush tax cuts expire will be a big blow to a lot of people (some of whom voted for Obama since he said he'd cut their taxes).
4) That there will be strong conservatives that are ready for the 2010 congressional races and that in 2012, we will have a presidental candidate that we can truly vote for.
The good news is that we have another chance to take back the House and Senate in 2010. I hope that conservative leaders will emerge that can help that to happen and the Republicans now will vote as conservatives.
Due to Hurricane Gustav, the September congressional primaries for parts of Louisiana were delayed until October. That means that the runoffs were on the November ballot and the final race isn't until early December. Joy, I get to deal with campaign calls for another month.
