Republican Bloodbath

Tuesday, November 4, 2008 5 comments

Let me start by congratulating Barack Obama on his victory as hard as it is to do, but history has been made in electing the first African American POTUS. With that said, be ready for a rough four years. I do not agree with his policies and it will be easier for him to get things done with a majority in both the Senate and House.

Republicans need to regroup. I noticed many moderate Republicans lost, which may help create a core leadership. Also, with the Democrats in control they can no longer blame Republicans or Bush in particular for everything. The Republicans are down but not out. After these last two elections the American people will realize what they are getting and I foresee Republicans doing well in 2010 and more so in 2012.

From a Christian perspective I have a sense of peace knowing that God is in control. However, I also recognize his judgment and think that we might be experiencing that right now. Yet the Bible tells us to pray for our leaders and that is what I will do. I do not want to carry on the hatred that has been shown towards President George W. Bush.

1 Timothy 2:1-4
"Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."

    It all comes back to that original question, does God allow it, or does He choose it?

    Its something I have been kicking around all night. Surely God allows man to make a choice, maybe not in all cases, but how do we know which is which?

    I can at least rest assured that God is all powerful, and has the final word.

    The Christian Right is the problem, not the solution. The GOP cannot win with only the socially-conservative base. Social moderates used to win in blue states because there used to be strong moderate Republican bases in those states. The religious purification of GOP drove most of those people out of the party, and the chance of building a large socially-conservative base in the blue states is near nil.

    anonymous,

    Thanks for the comment, but I have to disagree. Look at different proposals in states. Florida rejected the marriage amendment by 60%. People always talk down conservative and Christian principles, but I don't buy it.

    Layne,

    Here we go again... I will not go into the whole debate, but Romans 13:1 says "authorities that exist are appointed by God."

    Social conservatives are the problem only insofar as they are obsessed with abortion and homogamy to the exclusion of anything else. Many of these voters would actually be democrats, as most of them are fairly comfortable with the welfare state.

    The key to fixing the Republican Party will be to kick out the moderates and the scumbags. One of the most powerful moves that the Republicans could do to fix their image would be to make Ron Paul the leader of the House Republicans, and if they win a majority in 2010, make him Speaker of the House.

    Only anti-war, anti-torture, pro-sovereignty, keep the government out of my wallet AND bedroom conservatism like Ron Paul's can fix the Republican Party at this point.
