I’m predicting a moderate-sized Romney win, but the Democrat’s intimidation tactics and destruction of Republican registrations are already well-documented and could swing the results. Given how Obama used your tax dollars to buy votes from millions of people I’m amazed that it could be a Romney victory at all. But I’m encouraged that even with the seemingly non-stop Obama (free) infomercials from the mainstream media that enough people see how he is actively destroying the country and how a second term would be step functions worse. He’ll be as unrestrained as the blind men of Sodom.
And a Romney win will be just as huge of an impact. With some natural business cycle improvements plus Romney/Ryan policies they would sail to re-election in 4 years based on the dramatic improvements in the economy. It would be the easiest campaign ever: “We promised, we delivered. Want some more?”
But it gets better than that. The Clinton Democrats will throw Obama under the bus before the Romney inauguration and keep him there permanently. The Liberal extremists would be damaged for a long time.
Will I still have joy if Romney loses? Of course. That is my birthright as a Christian to have joy and contentment whenever I choose.
But will there still be something to mourn about? Of course. While I’m a huge fan of God’s sovereignty and how we shouldn’t act as non-Christians do when it comes to mourning or celebrating the wrong things or in the wrong way, there is nothing wrong with lamenting a Romney loss. And as one blogger noted, there is no reason you’d tell a Romney supporter, “no big deal, God is sovereign!” any more than you’d say that to someone going through a medical issue.
As I responded on a Facebook thread, I definitely agree that our hope should be in Jesus. Mine is. And we need an eternal perspective. But taking that to an extreme would also mean that the “love your neighbor” command isn’t a big deal. After all, this life is just a short blip, right? But if I love my neighbors, I want them to have religious freedom, I want them to have jobs, I don’t want them to be killed just because they are unwanted, I don’t their minds poisoned with sexual perversions in public schools, etc. And this election deals with all of those things.
The lesser of two evils is still less evil. We aren’t voting for a religious leader. We are electing someone to govern us with the values most approximating a biblical worldview, and our choices are limited. Even if a self-proclaimed Christian ran you can never be 100% sure he is legitimate. Remember, Obama claims to be a Christian.
And remember, it isn’t just about the President. While the incumbent has violated the Constitution at will, most Presidents don’t. So the Congress is crucial. When people long for the “Clinton years” what they are really longing for is a conservative Republican Congress. And the “Bush years” that Obama blames the most were the “Democrat Congress years.”
So get out and vote Republican if you haven’t already! And remind Democrats that until their platform is changed, they are officially pro-abortion: No restrictions of any kind plus taxpayer-funding.
