Happy Thanksgiving

I obviously have a huge reason to be thankful for this year...I'M MARRIED!!!! =)

I'm also thankful for 7 years of no attacks on American soil thanks to President Bush never taking his eye off the ball despite tons and tons of criticism from all sides.

I'm most thankful for living in a country where I'm free to give thanks to the One who was the original receiver of Thanksgiving from the Pilgrims almost 400 years ago...and no...I'm not talking about the Indians despite what is taught in public schools but God.

Take 2 - I'm MARRIED!!!

Now it is definitely official in the eyes of LA and of God. We had an awesome wedding on the beach in The Bahamas. I'm so excited to see where life will lead now that I've found my missing rib =)

Earlier today we were legally married in the eyes of the state of LA. We are leaving in a couple of hours to head to the Bahamas and will be married in the eyes of God on Saturday!!!

And no...just b/c Obama won, I'm not even considering staying out of the country for the next four years, we'll be back on the 24th =)

Kinda Late Now!

Now that the election is over, the Washington Post admits it was biased for Obama. Not that comes at any surprise! The question now is will they learn from their mistakes or continue to do the same and look the other way. I'm not holding my breath that the Post or any of the rest of the MSM all of a sudden finds a conscience.

Historic Election

While I'm obviously disappointed with the results of the election tonight, no one can deny the very historic victory. Obama's speech tonight was a very good speech as they all have been throughout the campaign. Now is the time to start governing. Will he truly work to compromise with those of us whose vote he didn't earn? Time will tell.

While I'm moving more towards full time missions and less involved in politics, I'm sure there will still be times I voice my thoughts and opinions as I'm very afraid what the policies that are sure to come will do to the country I love so much. I'll do my best as always to do it in a positive manner sticking to the issues and not attacking the person. He is the person God has allowed to be our President and we are called to honor his authority in that position as stated in Rom 13:1 - "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God." NIV

My 2008 Presidential Endorsement

You would think this would have been an easy decision considering who the Dem nominee is, but it hasn't been. McCain has stuck his finger in the eye of conservatives so many times and on many levels continues to do so. However, when weighed against the prospects of an Obama presidency, I have to vote for McCain, especially due to being in a swing state.

If were in a non-swing state, I may have pulled the lever for Barr, but even then I'm not so sure b/c I fundamentally disagree with his position in Iraq, which despite current sentiment on the economy, still is the most important issue of this election.

So on my three top issues, war on terror, economy and judges, I'm comfortable choosing McCain. However, don't think for a second he will get a free pass on the issues I disagree with him on if he pulls out the victory.

Also, no matter what you hear on the news all day tomorrow...GO VOTE. The exit polls will be incredibly inaccurate, probably even more so than in '04, so don't let anything get you into thinking it is too late to make a difference. Every vote...especially in the swing states...will count!
