In God's Hands

It does not now look like McCain-Palin can turn the tide against the Obama juggernaut. Ah, well. There hasn't been much hope since it became clear that Obama would win the nomination. McCain and especially Palin simply do not have the...anything that Barack Obama possesses. I DEARLY wish he was a conservative Republican, because he is--for better or worse--going to change the world, and conservativism may well be left behind. Mark Levin has a great article at The Corner:


There is a cult-like atmosphere around Barack Obama, which his campaign has carefully and successfully fabricated, which concerns me. The messiah complex. Fainting audience members at rallies. Special Obama flags and an Obama presidential seal. A graphic with the portrayal of the globe and Obama's name on it, which adorns everything from Obama's plane to his street literature. Young school children singing songs praising Obama. Teenagers wearing camouflage outfits and marching in military order chanting Obama's name and the professions he is going to open to them. An Obama world tour, culminating in a speech in Berlin where Obama proclaims we are all citizens of the world. I dare say, this is ominous stuff.

It's truly scary. But there is one bright spot: everything is in God's Hands. If He has ordained that America should fall swooning into the clutches of this man, then it is for His purposes and those of us whose aim is to glorify Him should give all praise for it. God bless Senators Obama, McCain, and Biden; and Governor Palin as well. Lord, lead them all in your ways.

I've been working for the Republican party and John McCain almost every waking minute this past month (at least it seems like it) and haven't been too happy with the polls. Thanks for writing this. It really helps to see it in writing and make one feel a bit better about our present predictament.
