I spoke to a few friends of Afro-American origin convinced that the Obama presidency must be sustained to uphold civil rights gains and concern for the common populace in a harsh capitalism, as well as progress the agenda for freedoms in all its new ramifications … somewhat implying a larger but more responsive and caring government.
They say a Republican win would imply the return of Wall Street imperialism, capitalist oppression by the wealthy class, perhaps more jobs but at the cost of less social freedoms and reduced influence to advance non-white causes. It would be a smaller more efficient government less supportive of those accustomed to government freebies and with improved fiscal disciplines. Mormon morality may also obscure the propagation of Christian faith as more are attracted to mormonist teachings. But many prefer a Mormon revival to the declining morality.
Every interest group can spin the issues to come up with the desired answer. Come what may, almost no black person is expected to vote for Romney even as more than a few will simply elect to hold their noses as they cast their votes. Indeed the debates in my view showed Romney as much more astute even if accused of vacillating positions but many who love Obama will be endeared to his common street touch and less intellectual commitment to help the helpless even if this has to be paid for later by who knows who - perhaps the Chinese when America defaults..
Many say the bets are that Obama will still win given that the edge of incumbency and superior campaign funding will be well leveraged to project continued images of the caring president and demonizing of the opposition.
Someone also said the Presidency is not the Papacy, and religion should not play a part. Still already evangelicals have been discredited as race divided even as Romney introduces himself as a Mormon pastor and Obama, knowing that non-whites of all faiths will find the conclusion of a failed first black presidency too painful a conclusion to reach, will see no need to touch the religion card.
God knows precisely who will win, because He has planned it to be so. God often controls situations to elevate whomsoever He wills either for judgment or for mercy. It is interesting that Cyrus, King of Persia a heathen King was raised for mercy to sponsor Nehemiah’s rebuilding of the walls. While Saul especially anointed by Samuel ended sitting in the coven of the witch of Endor before a shameful defeat.
Isa_44:28 That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid. Isa_45:1 Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut
We cannot know who will win, but over the years we will soon discover whether God has caused a merciful reign anointed to build His truths and people or there is a justice that needs to be served by more godlessness until the cup of the “Amorites” as they say becomes full.
Refusing to vote is also voting - as this helps to install a winner you did not reject. Vote well. It will count.
God reigns in all the affairs of mankind.
