"The Second Coming
by William Butler Yeats

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming!
Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight; somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"

This is how I see this election. Our world is spinning away from our Creator. We, His creation, are ignoring Him; we have chosen to cover our ears from His voice. We have turned on our own innocents for our own comfort. If we chose to continue down the path of murdering the unborn then when do you expect for any one's life to be valuable? Women will continue to be held as mere objects to be used and abused. Children will continue to be physically and mentally abused by whom ever. The disabled will have no voice to speak for them. The elderly will be left to die alone without care or love. We stand around complaining that we can't fill our cars up for a long driving vacation, while children in this great country die at the hands of convenience.

Obama is the most vile offender. He wishes to keep all of us down under government control through taxes. He wants the change in Washington to allow tax payer partial birth abortion to be legal and wide spread. He wants to destroy the foundation of our culture that of traditional marriage and family to allow an anything goes mentality.

Go read your history books. Rome fell from corruption within that started with the destruction of the family! Slippery slopes are real and dangerous, just waiting in the wings. Bad things happen when good people do nothing. Voting for Obama because he is (partial) African American is just as racist as not voting for him for the same reason. There are enough non-race related issues regarding Obama to not vote for him and the most important one is his stance on children. His word "burden" is his description of children, especially children who survive an abortion attempt.

I was appalled at Obama's quote about children when he said it. How deeply troubling!!

Great new blog look! And again I totally agree. I have been in tears most of the week as I have looked at how or what our country has become. I am sure the Lord is very sad too.
