I will have to think about this one, for I am not sure how I am going to feel if this happens.
Rick Moran has posted a piece I would like for all of my readers to read/think about and, if compelled to, comment on.
I wasn't happy when Bush was elected in 2000, I thought it was a toss-up between who was the worst candidate, Gore or Bush. I went with Bush because at least he represented some of the same ideals I held near and dear to me. But that alone was not enough to make me feel confident that he had the brains to run this country. In many ways since then, I have been proven wrong.
When 9/11 happened, I felt more secure under his leadership than I would have under a Gore administration. I admired the fact that he wasn't going to sit idly by and simply condemn this heinous act of violence on our soil, but was committed to hunting down the vermin responsible for it. For that reason, I have supported him in as much as my values permit. And I have criticized him when situations that I feel warranted it.
But what if Barack Obama wins? I can't say just yet. I will wait and see, for I am not convinced that he will. Not just yet. He might. But he might not.
However, I will not get discouraged until the votes are all counted and I will not forgo my constitutional right to cast my vote, based on what the national polls are saying right now. But with that said, I am resigned to the fact that he may win and we will be stuck with the biggest liar and shady dealer, in this country's history.
Will I hope I am wrong about him? Absolutely. But at this point in time, from the vibes and solid information I have been getting, I am very skeptical this will be the case.
Anyway, read Moran's piece and see what you think.
