I am disappointed. It is no surprise that Obama won but it I kept hoping that somehow, McCain would win. McCain, while not perfect, would be so much better than Obama. I get the feeling that we haven’t seen the real Obama yet. It doesn’t seem like he understands the gravity of the ideological Isalamsim threats. A lot of people seem to think that Obama is going to be America’s savior. There’s this clip on some of the talk radio shows from a citizen interview. A woman says she’s not going to have to worry about putting gas in her car, paying her mortgage, etc… Huh?? Where has she been? Not in the real world, that’s for sure.

The bright spot is that Proposition 8 passed. That was a nice surprise. Could have something to do with the record numbers of black voters, generally against homosexual marriage, that turned out to vote for Obama.

It’s tempting to worry about the bleak forcast, but ultimately, it’s God that sets leaders up and causes them to fall and I can’t put my faith in princes whether I think they will do a good job or not.

On another note, it was fun to vote in such a historical election and to participate in the election excitement, whether positive or negative. This is one I might be telling the grandkids about someday.

Psalm 146- The Happiness of Those Whose Help Is the Lord

Praise the Lord!

Praise the Lord, O my soul!

While I live I will praise the Lord;

I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

Do not put your trust in princes,

Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help.

His spirit departs, he returns to his earth;

In that very day his plans perish.

Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help,

Whose hope is in the Lord his God,

Who made heaven and earth,

The sea and all that is in them;

Who keeps truth forever,

Who executes justice for the oppressed,

Who gives food to the hungry.

The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners.

The Lord opens the eyes of the blind;

The Lord raises those who are bowed down;

The Lord loves the righteous.

The Lord watches over the strangers;

He relieves the fatherless and widow;

But the way of the wicked He turns upside down.

The Lord shall reign forever—

Your God, O Zion, to all generations.

Praise the Lord!
