Our thoughts... The National Election
Placeholder Image

Tuesday the American people rose up and sent forth a powerful message.

They said that they want Congress and the president to work together to create more jobs for the American people.

Since the election of ’06 when the Democrats rose to power and did nothing but obstruct and stop any economic program that then President Bush wanted, to the current crop of Republicans who did their best to do the same thing, our country has gone into a tailspin.

The Republicans should not take the idea to the next session of Congress that the votes on Tuesday are a mandate for their policies.

In fact, as far as we are concerned the Republicans would make a bold statement of change if they elected a new leader that would be the speaker of the house instead of rehashing John Boehner, who now apparently has had a great epiphany and wants to honor the true will of the people.

The American tax payers want a Congress and a president to now work together to bring our jobs back home, add no new taxes, to amend the major mistakes on the health bill, to create an enforceable immigration bill and to listen — yes actually listen — to what their constituents are telling them.

Anything short of this comprise will result in another revolution and we are afraid that it might not be so peaceful this time if it happens.

We ask each of you in your daily prayers to ask God’s guidance and blessing on our elected leaders and our country that they make wise and bold decisions that will continue to keep us safe from terrorists and will guide us out of this economic depression that has hurt and crippled the lives of so many of our neighbors.
