Even Still, Don't Lose Heart

There are many ways to view this election and there will be a lot of analysis in the coming days. If there is anyone who knows about being attacked and losing, yet remaining positive and encouraging, it is Sarah Palin from the great state of Alaska. 

I woke up today thinking that at least now when our economy fails, people will blame it on the big government policies that caused it and not the free market. Obama criticized Bush, and in some regard, rightly so, for the economic failures that Bush implemented. The only problem is Obama failed exponentially more than Bush. 

I could go on and on about how bleak this looks, and I'll save more time for that in the next four years. I could go on about how bad voter fraud was in my state, Ohio and probably across the nation. I could go on about it, but I'm not going to. Here is an encouraging and timely message from Sarah Palin that she posted on her Facebook page.

America, don’t lose heart. This election is not an “Obama mandate,” nor is it a rejection of conservatism. Unanswered ads like this one running in blue collar swing states defined Romney early on, and the Obama media also piled on with the narrative that Romney would harm the middle class. (As I personally have witnessed, once a bell is rung by a biased media, it’s impossible to un-ring it.) Ironically, it’s Obama’s socialist policies that will destroy America’s working class as he outsources opportunities.

Hang in there, America. Fight for what is right. Don’t look to government or any politician to solve your problems. Government can’t make you happy, healthy, wealthy or wise. Obama is a master at reading the right “soaring” words fed into his teleprompter, but actions speak louder than words. So, hold tight to 2 Corinthians 4:8 because we’re in for a wild ride.

We must survive. United. One nation under God.

"We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted but not forsaken, struck down, but not destroyed." – 2 Corinthians 4:8-9.

- Sarah Palin

What are your thoughts on the election?


  1. Thanks for the post Caleb. Very encouraging!

  2. I didn't particularly like either candidate, and so I voted third party. As to the results, I'll admit a part of me was surprised with Obama getting re-elected, with the poor job he has done. But it fit with my current low view of our political climate.

    1. Yeah, I'm hoping that people start waking up. Mitt Romney wasn't my first choice, and I definitely respect your choice to vote third party.
