I am simply Catholic. Not a Democrat. Not a Republican. This election has my brain in a twist. On one hand, I can’t vote for Obama. He has jumped the shark on abortion and freedom of religion. On the other hand I am not comfortable with voting for the may be slightly better Romney.
So do I hold my nose, vote for Romney, and hope for the best? Or do I write in a candidate?
The Vice presidential debate was not helpful. Catholic Biden was condescending and patronizing. His “I am personally apposed to abortion but..” stance is as old as it is wrong. Ryan was not much better as a Catholic. According to him Abortion is just fine in certain circumstances. So much for the inherent dignity of human life.
I have (maybe) decided to vote for Mr. Not Obama because:
1. If he ousts Obama, the press will without a doubt stop being cheerleaders for the president no matter what he does. Accountability Yea! Oh and maybe somebody in the MSM will speak out about the administration’s kill list and drones.
2. The war protesters will return. Yea I know they were really protesting Bush. Still someone needs to be questioning the war in Iraq.
3. It is just down to voting for the guy who will do the least harm. The not Obama Candidate is, in my opinion, that guy.
But I am convinced neither candidate cares about ordinary Americans. They live in their own little elite bubble. Romney and Obama think that they are our betters.
That is why I put my trust in Jesus not earthly princes.
Lord have mercy.
