GOD and the American people have chosen Barack Obama to be our next President! Surely we can all honor this verdict, and do what's best for our great country? As Lincoln spoke at another time of trial for our divided country--can we live "the better angels of our nature!"

Henry --

This may be a more appropriate Lincoln quote:
"At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we ourselves must be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide."

It appears more civility will not resolve the issues. It appears we have chosen suicide.

God did not chose this person. We have free will. If anything the evil of this nation has prevailed and America is going to pay dearly for not turning to God.

Someone should take a poll asking Americans how they feel about polling. I’m pretty sure our shared distaste for it is one thing about which nearly all of us would agree.

Of all the polling data released in the week leading up to Tuesday’s election, the one that struck me as most revealing came from pollster Scott Rassmussen. Not because it conveyed anything new about voters’ opinions about the candidates, but because it portrayed the seriousness of our political divide.

Mr. Rasmussen asked Americans this crucial question: “Has the upcoming election negatively affected any relationship with a friend or family member?”
