article imageOp-Ed: The world waits with bated breath as election draws near

By Christopher Wager     Oct 24, 2012 in Politics
All the world's eyes are on the American election, candidates battle for their place among the super powers of the world. Who will be the real winners?
America- November is quickly becoming the most important month of the year for America, her allies, and her enemies. But what does the election really mean? One can only speculate to the butterfly effect it will have around the world.
Americans and citizens of the world should appreciate the momentous moment in history we are witnessing. This election maybe one of the most important of our lifetime.
Not because of race, but because of the competing ideologies and visions of the future for America each candidate brings to the table. Supporters for each candidate passionately believe their candidate stands for what is best for the country.
But do they? In order to answer this question we must first determine what yard stick we are comparing them with. For example, if we were to use the founding documents, which inevitably make reference to God, then which candidate has spoken in defense and belief in these ideas?
If we were to speak of fundamental change and equalizing prosperity for all Americans, which candidate has spoken of these talking points? Are they in line with the majority?
Will a single vote or two or three make any difference? With the structure of the Electoral College and the delegate collecting going on, can we expect the popular vote to have any impact of the elections outcome?

Regardless of who will be our new sitting president. The question facing America now is, can one man be expected to, “Save” America from going off any number of cliffs? Is there still time to stop what looks to be, by all indicators, the inevitable collapse?
Expecting one man to give birth to many needed solutions to impossible problems facing this country should be understood to be unrealistic at best, which leaves us with the only sane and logical conclusion. We must, as trustees of the future of our children, work together, pray together, to fulfill our promise of a strong and prosperous America to our children's children. Should this not be the very least expected of us?
Whatever future God has planned for America, we Americans need to do what we do best, what has attracted new Americans for centuries. Band together to aid our brothers and sisters in their hour of need and grant ourselves hope under God.
