Right up front I'll say that I voted for John McCain/Sarah Palin. (Our ballets were mailed to Tegucigalpa, Honduras, we voted and mailed them back. I assume they made it; one never knows with the mail here.) I lean more right than left. I am pro life, pro smaller federal government and pro more powerful local government (thanks to my son, David, who made me realize how important this is), among some other conservative issues.
I am very proud to be an American. I've lived in Honduras for more than 4 years now. I love the people here so much but there is no place on earth I'd rather be than in the good ol' U.S.A.!
But beyond being a Republican or a Democrat, I AM A CHRISTIAN! God is in charge of my life and nothing that any president, congressman, senator or mayor does changes the fact that I answer to the living God and He alone is the one in whom I put my trust and faith.
I am proud of our country. Live in a third world country before you are too quick to criticize the U.S. government. It is not perfect but nothing on this earth is.
I choose to put my faith in God and my life in His hands. I will respect and honor the man, Barack Hussein Obama, as my president. Never in a million years as a girl growing up in south Arkansas did I believe I would see this day. A black man in the White House! Politics aside, I am proud of this fact...proud that our country has come this far and has truly accepted America as the "melting pot" it has always been.
I believe God has a plan. I want to follow that plan. But most of all, I want to go to Heaven. Thank God that there will be no politics there! Our Lord will reign supreme.
