My readers believe America won’t be as safe after Obama is sworn in as president. I asked the question on ASK500 whether America would be more or less vulnerable under Obama. The green buttons said we would be more vulnerable under President Obama 60% to 40%.
There are some died-in-the wool Obamaites who think almost 8 years of terror-less life in America just happened. I don’t believe that. It occurred because under George Bush, America followed an aggressive seek-and-find anti-terrorist campaign which most Americans don’t seem grateful for. Freedom is something we all should applaud and be most grateful for–both to those who defend us, our millitary, and that includes the commander in chief, Bush, and to our God.
It is especially appropo at this time of the year, Thanksgiving that we should be grateful to not just our family, mothers and fathers and spouces (or if you’re gay, to your boyfriend or girlfriend), but to our God who created us. Our God who created this Earth and the Universe and all therein. Our God who is watching over us so long as we as a whole live righteous lives.
You don’t have to go to church to thank Him, get on your knees tonight and ask for his help in your life and if you exhibit enough faith you’re prayer will be answered. Note, I didn’t say your prayer would be heard. God hears all prayers, but it is up to us to be obedient to his will and to use all of our resources for doing good, and that includes our normal expenses of raising our family, paying the rent, putting food on the table and so forth.
He is most responsive to those who love Him. He said: “If you love me, keep my commandments.” Another time he said, “Feed my sheep.”
Remember, there are more unemployed Americans at this time than a year ago–than in the past few decades. Give to your favorite charity and earmark some funds to the helpless, the jobless, those in need–and the elderly and others who need our help most.
