OK, so I'm the guy that walks into a restaurant and when they tell me it's going to be a 10 minute wait, I'm ready to go to the next place. I just know that my wife cringes when she hears the hostess say, 'Just take this little vibrating thingy and when it goes nuts we'll have a table for you' because she knows I'll whine.
Well this afternoon I waited in a very LOOOONNNGGG line for 4 1/2 hours to cast my vote for McCain. Many thoughts went through my head as I stood there;
1) I wonder how many of these people are voting for the very first time just because they have been promised that they will get all of their needs met without having to work.
2)I wonder if these guys realize how ridiculous they look with those Bluetooth bugs crawling out of their ears.
3)I'm thankful to those that have gone on before me who have given their lives so that I can have the privilege of voting.
4) I wonder if this is going to even be worthwhile since ACORN has Donald Duck, Betty Boop, and Mickey Mouse registered in so many states.
5)MAN, I have to pee.
My truck was parked next to the line and the black couple behind me commented on my "VOTE FOR McCAIN, NOT FOR HUSSEIN" bumper sticker, by discussing the fact that the owner of that truck must be very uninformed. I couldn't resist telling them that the guy that owns that truck must be one of those "Angry white men clinging to God and their guns," that Obama was talking about a while back. Then I informed him that the aforementioned truck belonged to me.
I love this country and the opportunities it affords those who want to work and put forth the effort to succeed. It would break my heart to see us go the way of Socialisim and redistributing the wealth of those that have taken the risks, and worked hard to get where they are, and give it to those that have done nothing to earn it. This was never the intended job of the government as our forefathers founded it. This has always been, and continues to be the job of the church as Jesus founded it.
This has been a tough election for those Conservatives like me who have been forced to vote for the lesser if the evils. It is comforting to know though, that God is still on the throne and that HE is in charge. And in case you are wondering, yes, I am clinging both to God AND my guns. God bless our nation and the Biblical truths that we hold dear.
