Extreme Disappointment

I don't even know what to say.  I can't believe this happened again after what has gone on for the last four years.  It seemed as if so many who voted for Obama in 2008 were not planning to vote for him again.  The ignorance of half the population stuns me.  They must not do any research at all.

His extreme stance on abortion, his support of gay marriage, his failed economy, the bail outs, the way he divides our country along racial, political and economic lines, his policy on immigration, his failure to pay down the debt, instead raising it to over $16 trillion, his treatment of the military, no energy policy, no budget, redistribution, his treatment of the Catholic Church...I could go on and on.  People should learn about these things before voting for someone.  Instead we see videos of people being interviewed about the election, and most of the Obama voters don't even recognize a picture of Joe Biden and think Paul Ryan is black!  They don't even know what they are voting for.

I hate politics and don't say much about it, but I am extremely disappointed.  Half the population are "takers," and I'm sorry, but that is the truth.  The "makers" are expected to pay higher and higher taxes to support the "takers."  And the takers won this election for Obama.  He is taking our country down the path of socialism.

My son says that no matter who is elected, we are still on that path, just at a slower pace.  Maybe so, but my prayer for this election was that we get Obama out of the White House.  

No matter what has happened, or will happen, I know that God is in control.  I just wish I understood His plan.  So, I put my faith in Him, and go on with my life.  I still have the things that are most important to me--Ron, our family, our home, our faith.  I'll focus on all the delightful things in the world rather than the negative, ugly things.  But I'm afraid things are going to get even uglier.
