Election aftermath

I went to bed early, but when I awoke I discovered that its apparently the end of the world because the democratic candidate was elected for president.

Here is my 2 cents, take it or leave it.

Each candidate was human being. Flawed every bit as much as we are. He is not our Savior. He cannot personally fix the national debt, lower taxes, increase the job market, and whatever else the presidents is supposed to do. There are checks and balances in congress, decisions are not solely up to the president.

Each candidate told half truths. Both of the candidates ideas sounded great and promising, but I believe that both candidate knew that everything they were promising would not be possible to accomplish in their four year reign.

People say don't complain if you didn't vote, I say don't complain period. You wanna see change in the government? Maybe you should consider donation money to the political party of your choice, spending your free time passing out fliers or holding signs. Or maybe you should just run for an office yourself. Complaining on face book does nothing but start arguments and makes me seriously consider deleting you. Be mature people, you aren't in high school, and if you are... well I will probably just laugh at you thinking your teenage whining is going to change something. You want change, be the change, start a revolution, do something.

If you are a christian, you are required to respect your governing leadership. I didn't say you had to agree with everything the administration stands for... but the other candidate was Mormon, so I can tell you I definitely don't agree with all of his values either. The bible explains that you are submit to your governing authority, because authority comes from God... and I'm pretty for sure he knows what he is doing.

And finally, the election is over... if you really feel so strongly you need to move to Canada, please do so. I'm sure you'll be much happier there anyway. But for those that plan on sticking around, the best thing to do is pray for your government. Your democratic and republican representatives. While many have been up in arms, I doubt God even batted an eye. Jesus is still seated at the right hand of God. This election did not give him anxiety or cause him to pace back and forth. God is in control, period. And at the end of the day, if you take comfort in the, the economy and the future all seem a lot less scary.

The end, oh and God bless America :)

What is Paigerific? I’m glad you asked, although I don’t have an exact definition to offer. Paigerific is my thoughts and my heart. Paigerific is my passion and my fear. Paigerific is my success and my failures. Paigerific is my blood, sweat, and tears. Paigerific is more than just simply word. It’s a million different words all rolled into one. Words like hope, grace, determination, imperfection, love, faith, insecurity… The one word I would use to describe myself? I am Paigerific.
