A Few Closing Thoughts on This Election Day 2008

 
"The people are reponsible for the character of their Congress.  If that body be ignorant, reckless and corrupt, it is because the people tolerate ignorance, recklessness and  corruption.  If it be intelligent, brave and pure, it is because the people demand these high qualities…If the next centennial does not find us a great nation…it will be because those who represent the enterprise, the culture and the morality of the nation do not aid in controlling the political forces."
Rev. James A. Garfield (1831-1881), U.S. President, Minister of the Gospel
 
"It is when people forget God that tyrants forge their chains."  Patrick Henry
 
"The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but the God of Israel is He that giveth strength and power unto His people.  Trust in Him at all times, ye people, pour out your hearts before Him; God is a refuge for us."
Abigail Adams
 
"The time has come that Christians must vote for honest men, and take consistent ground in politics or the Lord will curse them…Christians have been exceedingly guilty in this matter.  But the time has come when they must act differently…God will bless or curse this nation, according to the course Christians take."
Rev. Charles G. Finney (1792-1875), Revivalist in the Second and Third Great Awakenings, College President.
 
May God have mercy on the United States of America no matter what this race’s outcome.

  1. Hey G, may I know who you vote for? or is it confidential. Just curious. Yes, it is our duty to vote, I agree with that wholeheartedly.
     
    As for your description of me, you had most right, except for one. I wrote an entry about that.
     
    Take good care G! 🙂
    I think, I kinda guessed too, that you’re the type who’d like time alone. Often I’m like that too, but I enjoy the company of my very closest friends, especially family.

  2. I think he did and I also hope that he will continue to look kindly on us.
    We are going to have a rough couple of years.  The election went the way I wanted, but I firmly believe the matter which way it went, the path is going to be a difficult one which we are going to have to buckle down and get back to our fiscal selves.  We need to stop relying so heavily on credit.  Just my two cents.
    Hopefully things went well up there.BP
