CHANGE???

Okay, I've been pondering all day the "Change" that people have been anticipating that Obama will bring...the problem is...I don't get it...what are they wanted changed? I'm serious...what is it people are expected?

Do people seriously believe that he will change the economy when the democrats are the the ones that brought change the past 2 years?

Do they want the abortion laws changed? and if so, why? Why would they want the law changed to kill a baby when it's 2/3rds term and babies born at this stage can be, when born premature, kept alive? What if Obama's mother believed in abortion? What if instead of adoption the birth mother aborted? How about teaching kids abstenence and morals? How about teaching them that if they have sex that pregnancy is a possibility and along comes responsibility? And abortion is just a cop out for responsibility???

Do they thing pulling out of the war will bring peace? Because if they did a little history study they would find the muslim and christian nations have been at war since the time of Abraham and will continue to be so until the end of time. It's not that difficult to figure out.

Do they think that health care should be socialized? Because most of the healthcare around the world is and it stinks...just ask people that live in a different country than the US. It's not the health professionals to blame, it's the insurance companies.

Do they seriously think everyone in America should get a hand out? I believe in giving to the less fortunate...but that means helping those that fall on hard times...not people that are too lazy to get off their rears and not try to get a job or work. The Bible clearly states a man that doesn't work shouldn't eat...so why should we be handing over cars and houses to them?

Is it just that people think a black man should be elected? So we elect someone because of the color of their skin instead of voting for his/her principles and morals?

So what change are people looking for...because frankly I don't get it...I really don't...so would someone that actually voted for Obama please explain it to me? Because I really would like to understand it, then maybe change really can begin!

I wouldn't know because I surely did not vote for him. We better have ears to hear and eyes to see what The Spirit of God is saying as we witness things coming up and being said, day by day.

Can't help you there---I didn't vote for him either. All I've heard are vague, empty promises of "change" but no good, doable, concrete plans to make any positive changes.

I read an interesting opinion piece yesterday, and I'm sorry that I can't remember where, but it said that in 1994? (not sure if that's the correct year or not) there was a landslide election for a democratic president, and then two years later there was a huge backlash when democratic congress members were voted out and replaced by republican, because the majority of Americans just don't support a far-left wing agenda. I hadn't thought about that before, and so I found it interesting. We will have to see what happens in the next year or two.

My question is when will the media stop treating Obama with kid gloves and start treating him like every other president we've had? Surely this hero-worship can't last--?
