Admittedly, I am disappointed ……….
a. in the “Tea party movement” for surrendering to GOP pressure and abdicating the power we evinced in the 2010 elections. Today, if there even still exists a “TEA party,” it is split and therefore powerless against the GOP!
b. in the Conservative news media that exists, likewise, for not being bold enough to back a candidate, because in your failure to do so, you have ultimately supported the GOP candidate
The result, as I see it, will be just like 2008. Clearly, the American people are not enthusiastic about Romney or his numbers would be higher, and yet, because he has the money, because he has establishment backing, because his name is better known, because he is touted as the ONLY candidate with the potential to beat Obama … He wins just enough to win, but not enough to be convincing. I thought there was a chance the MEDIA would not dictate the winner in November, but it looks like I was wrong. It’s all bought & paid for … they win, America loses.
Although this primary is technically far from over, because of the backroom deals and corruption that exists in last minute mis-counts, lost votes, etc, I have no faith whatsoever in the results. They will be what the powers-that-be wish them to be. While I will most likely vote against Obama, I cannot enthusiastically support any candidate but Rick Santorum. The character, positions, and courage he demonstrates far outweigh, in my mind, any of the many issues America faces. I cannot in good conscience get behind Mitt Romney, or Obama-lite, as some call him.
I was reminded last night of the Bible story of David and Goliath. A good story – one with many lessons to learn, but one which, sadly, America seems to have forgotten. Bigger, richer, more organized, better funded, better connected . . . does not necessarily mean a better Man or better potential President of the United States. When all is said and done, I know I have done my part and will continue to do what I can, but it is God who raises up and God who brings down. This I know. So while I am in no way “conceding” the race, I am confessing both my discouragement and my faith. My discouragement in the blindness of the American people and the lack of courage from those in leadership positions, but my faith in the Providential Hand that established this nation by His will and determines her future in accordance with His plan. Anything can happen …
