The 2 Corinthians 11:20 election

"For you bear with anyone if he enslaves you, if he devours you, if he takes advantage of you, if he exalts himself, if he hits you in the face"
(2 Corinthians 11:20 NAS)

Does any single verse of Scripture better capture the implications of this nation rewarding the administration and campaign of Barack Hussein Obama (see also here) with another four years in power?

His policies have eroded our rights and liberties, he has consumed the fruit of our labor and produced nothing but greater slavery, he has funded endless vacations and luxuries and entertainment for himself and his family, he accepted anointing as some kind of a Messiah who could harness the forces of nature itself — and we, as a country, have said "Thank you. More, please."

He ran a campaign that insulted our women, degraded them, spoke to them as sluts with no greater ambition in life than immoral sex and the right to kill babies; that maligned a good and decent American; and that lied, lied, lied palpably and obviously and (again) insultingly — and we, as a country, have said "Thank you. More, please."

One thing is certain.

We will get more.

And we'll have no one to blame but ourselves.

Oh, and PS:

Wow, thanks for exactly summing up what I thought of his so-called 'war on women'. He's the one saying we might as well be on our backs in a brothel.

Native Texans preserved the right to succeed when we joined the Union after all we were an independent nation with our flag.

Mizz: I think you mean "secede," and unfortunately you're under a wrong impression that Texas retained the right to leave the Union. It did not. It did, however, retain the right to split into smaller states.

I'm with Mizz H; I think Texas is proving we have the "right to succeed" — in spite of O!

As to the other, the link at the bottom of the post provides some information.

This is not just a moral issue (although above all else, it should be). The United Sates is on a direct course; heading over a fiscal cliff. If Texas, does not secede, we will also go over that cliff. We have to secede in order to salvage what’s left of a once great ideal. The United States government has grown into one of the largest employers in this country. It bleeds inefficiency, is hemorrhaging beyond control, and the U.S. Treasury can only print more money in response. Its citizens cannot continue to support the enormous government machine that has been created. Responsible states, which have been governed wisely, should strongly consider and enact their option of secession, and jump from the bus, before it goes over the cliff. It’s not just about “sore losers” or, “getting my way” nor is this some romantic notion. It has to happen. These secession states will, and can become, lifeboats, in a sense, for the rest of the nation. The U.S. will suffer economic collapse, and it will happen sooner than later.

PLEASE don't try to put the blame on those of us who fully realize the truth of your comments, tried to help others realize it too, and did NOT vote for BO.

"We" as a nation. He didn't take office by bloody coup.

It turns out that some people aren't terribly impressed with these "peacefully grant the right to secede" petitions.

Wow...
