For the past few weeks, I have silently observed quite a few things that made me sad. Maybe others don’t see what I see and that’s fine by me. Nonetheless, today I will share 2 of these things with the world. I will not quote any statistics, I will only state what I see… take it or leave it.
1. Obama May be in Danger
There is a lot of concern among African Americans that Senator Barack Obama’s fate may be the same as John F. Kennedy’s or Martin Luther King’s. Personally, I believe that all candidates risk their lives and those of their loved ones when they decide to run for office, but this isn’t the danger that I see. Obama has proven time and again that he is both a gentlemen and a man of integrity. Unfortunately, in politics that level of integrity will be tested. I see that Obama is in danger of becoming like any typical politician if he forgets his original reason for desiring to be President of the U.S. Typical politicians tend to forget that being in office is all about the people and not about them. I pray that Obama never forgets.
2. Hilary May be in Danger
Bill Clinton was a good President. During his years in office, the economy was good and our relationship across the border was as good as it could be considering the times. However, he is not the one running for office, Senator Hilary Clinton is. In case anyone hasn’t noticed, Hilary and Bill are 2 completely different people with different ideas on what’s best for the U.S. So what does this have to do with Hilary being in danger you ask? I fear for her soul. Keep reading.
I don’t consider myself a religious, but I truly respect the Bible. Since Hilary recently quoted scripture, then I have to ask this question, quoting Jesus himself, “What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?” (Luke 9: 26) Is the hope of winning a contest worth splitting up a democratic party? It is no coincidence that over 50% of Clinton supporters would rather not vote or vote for McCain if she is not the Democratic candidate. “For each tree is known by its own fruit.” (Luke 6:44). “For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit.” (Luke 6:43). To have supporters that care more for getting what they want then for democratic party is a testimony to the type of campaign that she has been running. Also, is this not one way to attempt to force the hand of the superdelegates? I pray that Hilary will stop and contemplate what she has done and what she is about to do… My question to Hilary is: Are you sure this contest is worth forfeiting your very self?
I see so much more, but I have somewhere to be right now. My intentions are not to offend anyone, this is simply what I see.
