It looks like we will finally have a new President come January, and quite a bit of change to come with that!
I’m baffled by how many people seem to have fallen victim to the silly catch phrase “Yes We Can!” or Obama’s claim to “bring change to our nation.” Listen, any President will bring change. Claim something significant. And “Yes We Can!” just sounds like a slogan off of Bob the Builder.
But enough bashing of our new President-to-be. That’s actually not what I wanted to talk about anyway, I just had to get it out.
Hopefully for the last several months you’ve been praying that God’s will would be done, not that John McCain would be our next President. (I’m looking at you, Conservative Republican-Voting Christians!) That’s probably not the right way to go about it, and anyway, I believe that God’s will has been done.
One thing I’m pretty excited about now that the election is finally past is that your cheesy Facebook statuses will go away. Seriously … Let me just give you a few examples to prove my point without using any names. (The names that are used below are only because I know the people wouldn’t care and because they were one of the few being positive about the election.)
Jane Doe is scared for his country.
Seeing as how we’re the most powerful country in the world, this may be a good feeling to have. And change is always a scary thing, for the good or bad. Though, as V for Vendetta, “People should not be afraid of their governments; governments should be afraid of their people.” In general, however, I don’t think you need to be scared of Obama. He’s going to do what’s best for our country. That’s what we elected him to do.
Jane Doe is thinking America is retarded. The only difference between Obama and Osama is B.S.
This sounds like something I would have heard as a joke back in Junior High. But I think she actually may believe it. Anyway, this is ridiculously racist, since about the only thing that’s similar between the two of them is that they have darker skin. Please don’t try to bring up any bogus remarks about Obama’s ties with terrorist organizations now.
Also, prior to the heat of the election, Microsoft Word auto-corrected “Obama” to “Osama” because it didn’t know the word, but this has been fixed since then. True story.
John Doe is praying that his country is not really this ignorant.
Probably not. We’re not all complete idiots, we know what we voted for.
John Doe congradulates Al-Qaeda.
Honestly, Brad, what school do you go to? You can’t even spell congratulate …
John Doe knows this country needs a lot of prayer now.
I hope that you pray for our country all the time and would have been praying for our country just as much had McCain won. Everything always need all the prayer we can give it.
Jane Doe is here comes socialism.
By the way, Facebook finally removed the obligatory “is”, so you could change it to “Jane Doe says” and it would sound even better. Anyway, last time I checked we’re still a Democracy and always will be.
John Doe is very scared for the fate of the free world.
Still free. That’s why we elected a new President, because we can and we have the right to.
John Doe likes babies. Go McCain!
I like babies as well! They’re cute and wiggly and they go “coo” a lot. But, wait, aren’t we talking about an election here? As in, who’s going to lead our country? Sorry if this sounds harsh, but this isn’t a single-issue election, and those who vote based upon a single issue bother me. We voted for the person who could best lead our country in every situation.
John Doe is begining to question peoples christianity who are voting for obama…you fools are unbelievable.
Your status is unbelievable. Last time I checked, God doesn’t vote. He doesn’t even believe in democracy.
John Doe hopes that by this time tomorrow we can ALL unite under the leadership of whoever wins, whether it’s McCain or Obama.
Finally, a mature status! Thanks, Dan, you rock. That’s the kind of attitude we need.
John Doe is still proud to be an American, because, last time he checked, he was still free.
Nice, Keenan! You certainly are, and that’s the kind of attitude we need here.
Jane Doe is ENGAGED!!!!
Apparently not everyone was thinking about the election last night. Congratulations to my good friends Mr. and Mrs. (to be) David Benson ! Honestly, any guy who writes “Will You Marry Me?” in flaming napalm on the ground has MY vote. And apparently hers, since she said yes .
OK, there are countless statuses that bothered me because they were so closed-minded or inconsiderate of other people or God’s sovereignty. Or did everyone suddenly forget that we live under the rule of an all-powerful God?
What bothered me most last night was how quickly McCain withdrew from the race. I mean, obviously he was going to lose … That was predictable around 9:00pm. But it just seemed weak to bow out so quickly. On the flip side, what was it with hundreds of thousands of his supports booing him when he announced his support for our next President, Barack Obama? That’s support, huh? I think it’s silly he pulled out so soon, but I at least support his decision.
Anyway, you all should have voted for Cox/Laird ’08 last night. But seriously, hopefully people’s statuses will soon go back to pointless banter about their upcoming tests, how some girl is annoying them, or the horrible food at Chuck’s. Things that don’t matter, and things that don’t sarcastically point fingers of blame at fellow believers.
By the way. I voted for John McCain. And I support Barack Obama.
