To the editor:
Well, the election is over and we, as a nation, have failed to do what is best for our country. I have a few thoughts concerning the reasons that we failed which I feel compelled to share whether anyone wants to hear them or not - so here goes:
According to the "exit polls" and the analysts, Obama won with fewer votes cast for him in this election than when he was first elected. This is the first time this has ever happened. Also, Romney got fewer votes than did McCain four years ago. Three million fewer Republicans voted in this election than they did four years ago. Some Republicans have come forward since the election and said that they didn't vote for Romney for the same reasons they didn't vote for McCain, and that was because he wasn't conservative enough.
Let me say for starters that you people are idiots. I doubt that there are many people with a more conservative view than mine and I repeat that you are idiots. If you think that any candidate has to be perfect before you will vote for them, may I remind you that there has only ever been one perfect person and that was our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That leaves a lot to be desired for the rest of us in the perfection department. Your quest for perfection has not only allowed a big government socialist to be elected to the office of president, but you have allowed him to be re-elected to do not only four years of damage but eight years of damage to this country. The time to search for perfection is during the primaries and the nomination process.
Now let me make some more people angry. All you Republican party establishment idiots who keep telling us we have to nominate a candidate who will appeal to the independents instead of the most conservative candidate, you are a bunch of fools. Romney won over independents overwhelmingly. He still lost because your base did not show up to vote.
Now let me step on more toes and address the Christian community of which I am a long-standing member. For those who went to the polls and voted for Romney, I give you my warmest thanks and gratitude. You did the right thing.
For those Christians who did not vote because you think that you should not get involved or don't want to get involved, let me remind you that the only thing it takes for bad things to happen is for good people to do nothing. How can any Christian not cast a vote against a candidate and a party who supports abortion which is nothing more than the murder of the unborn? Obama even supports the murder of a baby that happens to survive an attempted abortion that fails and the baby is born alive. That is a fact - check it out.
I am also talking about Christians in the black churches across the country. If you voted for Obama because he is black and so are you, you should have been a Christian first instead of black first. All Christians should be "color blind." We are all brothers and sisters in Christ. God is no respector of persons. He tells us that in his Word. I am also sure that God would not want his children to support murder.
I truly believe that if every Christian in this country had cast a vote against the candidates and the party that supports abortion and other ungodly pursuits, that not only would this election but the entire moral face of this nation would and could have been changed forever.
I don't know whose toes I may have stepped on with this letter nor do I care. Let God be the judge of my heart and my intent. He is the only judge that concerns me.
I hope that this letter would not only be published in The (Lewistown) Sentinel but somehow be picked up and published all over the country. I think everyone should read it.
