My political views

It is time for me to put in my two cents. Even though the election is over, there is still a lot of political chatter going on. I will be the first one to tell you that I LOVE a good debate. I enjoyed debating with my liberal friends pre-election and still enjoy a good debate about the current political issues. The one thing I loathe is the ideal "that everyone is wrong but me". If you truly think you are 100% right then let me be the first to burst your bubble. There are always 2 side to every situation. Now that Barack Hussein Obama is president I think it is imperative that we come together as Americans. Am I happy that Obama won the election, no. Will I support his presidency, yes. It is my duty as a Christian AND an American to do so. It is your duty as well. I am so angry to see the "chatter" about Obama being assassinated. As if the assassination of an American president could possible be a good thing. If you can not voice your opinion in an intelligent, rational way then please just be quiet. The best way to sum up what I am trying to say is this...................

1 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. 4 For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. 6 This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. 7 Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
~Romans 13:1-7
