I know, I’ve been doing a lot of posting about political topics, but I can’t help it. I feel like this is a way for me to get things off my chest. It’s a way to share important topics that need to get out, as well.
So, here are two very interesting articles I’ve linked. The first is an article about financial experts and their view of Obama getting re-elected. The second is an article listing business that have announced big layoffs since the re-election (you won’t believe how many!). So, please read…Stay informed. I know the election is over but that doesn’t mean as citizens that we can just go on with life unaware until the next presidential election is getting close. We have to stay alert. We have to read up and know what our beliefs on the issues are.
What financial experts are saying:

The election was a big letdown to me this year. I was so sure that Romney would win and that while our country would still have such a far way to go, that at least, he was the better choice. I cried as I watched Romney’s concession speech because I thought of how badly America needs a leader who will be able to guide us through the tough times ahead. Someone who actually has experience in turning around big businesses. That was Romney’s specialty. He knew how to turn things around for businesses that were going down hill. And isn’t the United States basically one of the largest “businesses” in the world? We needed someone who would really work together with the congress and senate not just act like they want to. Someone who would really try to keep America on the right path, not the wayward one we’re going down. Someone who would bring unity, not divisiveness.
After Romney’s speech, I turned the tv off. I couldn’t take a victory speech from Obama when I was so disappointed. I didn’t want to hear about how he wanted to bring America together and move “Forward” when he has spent the last four years dividing this country while acting indignant when accused of doing so.
The next day, I adjusted my attitude and though saddened for America, faced the fact that Obama did win. I thought about why. This should’ve been an obvious choice. How can Americans look the other way when our own men died in Benghazi? How can people look the other way when the President repeatedly lies? Our constitution is being buried alive. Our country will live on but it is not a country with the same principles that we were founded on…that made us great.
I have just begun reading the book “Common Sense” by Glenn Beck which is inspired by Thomas Paine. Beck writes that “America is a unique and special place that is a beacon of freedom for the entire world.” I ask you, if we lose that, what do we have? What is it that has allowed America to thrive for so long? It is our constitution, freedoms and rights. There has never been anything else like the constitution and yet our nation has been choosing to move farther and farther away from it.
Americans need to prepare themselves for hard times ahead. Proverbs 6: 6-8 “Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise: which having no guide, overseer, or ruler, provideth her meat in the summer and gathereth her food in the harvest.” It’s time to hunker down and get busy. I looked up the definition of “hunker down” and it means: “to settle in at a location for an extended period” or “to maintain a position and resist yielding to some pressure“. The point is this: we have the same president for another four years, whether we like it or not, and we need to be prepared because it is not going to be an easy road ahead. Inflation, gun control, socialism and more is coming our way. When things get bad, I want to be able to take care of my own. I want to be able to be a blessing to others. I want to be prepared. It’s time to hunker down my friends!
Today, Americans have a monumental choice. The differences are starkingly clear between the two presidential candidates. The 2012 election is going to impact our nation in a gigantic way, either way it goes. I am full of excitement and terror at the same time.
Tomorrow, when we wake up, we will hopefully know who the winner is (if we don’t know tonight). If Obama is somehow voted in, the left will rejoice and the right will be at home in bed, heartsick. If Romney is victorious, the conservatives will be overjoyed and the left will act incredulous toward the truth. Choose well America! Choose with our future in mind. Stand on the side of truth and goodness and everything that is right. Go out and use your right to vote and be thankful for the honor!
