Aftermath and moving on

The election is done but apparently the angst is not. It's disheartening to see all the riots and threats going on. All the fears some are claiming are based on false information. Whether genuine or not obama and hillary are calling for a smooth transition and support of Trump. I do wish they would come out and condemn the rioting and help being calm back to people. I've had the last 8 years to put up with a president I didn't like but I never would wish him ill will or go riot in the streets or demand play time to deal with my stress. I'm embarrassed by what the world must think of us in this time. Peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of our country. It shows the state of our morality, education, and depravity that things are not going as smoothly now.

Finish line

The election is just days away. No one knows what will happen in the next few days, how the results will turn out or how people will respond to them. I know what I hope for. A Trump victory would be a step in the right direction to getting America back to her founding principles. I also know that we are in a fallen world and morality has been declining for decades in America and corruption has been multiplying. If hillary wins it is a reflection of how much we have fallen. If she wins it will be by fraud, corruption, and blinded people. I struggle to see how people can vote for someone as corrupt as her and someone who has no regard for the life of the unborn, for someone who is so clearly in this for herself and her self interests with little regard for the American people.
I know whoever is the next president will be the one God has in his plan. No matter who it is, God still reigns. To have lived in America is a gift and I hope that we can pull it together and build her up again. In the grand scheme of things in God's plan I'm not worried. I know whatever comes, it's no surprise to God and He will walk us though it. God, family, and country are all important, but I'm glad God is at the top.


If you've ever read the Left Behind series by Jerry Jenkins and Tim LeHaye you may remember this scene. Nicolae Carpathia shoots a man in front of several people. I forget the exact circumstances but he basically tells those in the room that the man went crazy and killed himself. Buck and another character in the room can't believe what they just saw. The shooting and also disturbing is the fact that all the others in the room readily accepted what Nicolae said. They completely believed the man shot himself and not that Nicolae shot him.
The reason I bring this up is it reminds me somewhat of what's happening in our society today. It seems people are so blind to the truth. Politicians say one thing when the reality is completely different. Crimes are committed but many don't see that or choose to ignore it. The other thing I see happen a lot is Hillary will say things like when they go low we go high, when reality is the exact opposite. That is one example but I've seen dozens, accusing the other side of doing the very thing that you are doing. Many of her followers will blindly follow no matter what she says or does, even in the face of blatant lies and crimes.
