I would have never believed it if you had told me--my stomach is actually churning and burbling with anxiety over the outcome of this election. I know everything is in God's hands, but what if His will isn't the same as mine?

While I'm all for CHANGE (remember, I'm the girl that moved half-way across the country to "try" a job for a year), I'm not really liking the idea of Socialism. Of course, if CHANGE does occur, I guess I should be happy. After all, I could go on a massive shopping spree while maxing out my credit cards (almost enough to match the National Debt), then I could quit my job, and declare bankruptcy. After all, CHANGE is going to take care of me--right? I'd be without a job and homeless, so I could have health care benefits and those people who are "lucky enough" to have a job can take care of my expenses since I will not be able too. Hmmmm....maybe this CHANGE person isn't so bad after all. I wonder if it will work?

Yes, I know--it's a little late to be airing my opinion now, but God and I have been at a cross-roads and He's not budging right now. I guess I'll have to wait and find out with the rest of the world who becomes our next President. Grrrrr....I'll get back to praying.

Welllllll, you knoooooooooow, I'm all for this Change person and I'm absolutely thrilled. Of course, it's not going to be all sunshine and roses, but having been the beneficiary of socialised health care when i really, really needed it, I think you might find it's not a bad thing at all.

For me, though, the main thing is about unity. Without getting too hippy on you, it's time to come together and work together. The world is ready to do it and we're thrilled to see the U.S. is, too.

Have a good one!

Thanks for giving me a glimpse of the "other" viewpoint. Yes, healthcare is a huge issue for me as a single person. I'm already paying out the nose and when I here that people from other countries that have socialized healthcare actually come to the US to have much-needed surgeries, etc. because they can't get then in their respective countries, it does scare me a bit.

I'm all for unity, but I have a problem with people who choose not to pull their weight in society. Why should I, who works 2 and 3 jobs, pay for someone else who is unwilling to work and just wants to collect unemployment because they feel they're "above" working at Mickey D's? (I'm speaking from family experience.) I don't think I should have to pay for them to sit on their butts while I can barely m ake ends meet as it is, but that's what the Change is going to cause.

Oh well, as you can see, I still have quite a few issues to work through. Thanks for stopping by and posting. Hopefully all of my qualms will be unfruitful and things really will work out for the best. :)

I feel ya.

And now I'm praying for our new President. He may not be the one I wanted, but I'm praying for him (and our country and our military), just the same.
