Last McCain-Obama Debate

I got very upset and had a hard time sleeping, because I could see Obama had the people in his grip. I listened to Hugh Hewitt talking with James Lileks (Mpls StarTribune columnist) afterwards and Lileks said that it doesn't matter what Obama's policies are, or what he's going to do to the economy, people just "want this."

It's like the whole country has taken to gambling. People are nuts! It's a downhill slide! It's a disaster! But people are willing to gamble, because they believe that what's happening now is the fault of the current president - that's that. People want a change, but hey(!) all a baby needs is a change! And they totally expect the same from McCain.

By the way, I sat with James Lileks at the Minnesota Organization of Bloggers party at Keegans pub in downtown Minneapolis in the summer of 2007, not knowing what illustrious company I was sitting with. He just sat there smoking a clove cigarette, or something, and I didn't notice that he was so brilliant.

People don't understand that the 'change' Fauxbama is peddling is NOT good change. He will most certainly change our country -- right into a socialist disaster! It's frightening to watch how people react to him (practically worship him), and it's infuriating how the media is so totally in the tank for him! All we can do at this point is PRAY!

Amen, Kim. I am encouraged today, with the increased support for McCain. A friend at church said that he believes the fervor over "Fauxbama" as you put it (ha!) proves how easily people will, in fact, put the anti-Christ into power.

The problem we were having in bible study is praying, "thy will be done" because we don't know if God might will that we go through something difficult, and you know who that would mean would get into power.

I know you're right about God's will, Gabrielle, that it may not be the same as our will in order to accomplish His purpose. I, selfishly, pray that God will have mercy on our nation and will not install Fauxbama as our next president.

I don't think it's selfish at all, Kim. For one, it may be God's will, and God certainly knows your heart. How much more abortion can we stand to have?
