It looks like just about anyone who wins the Republican primary has a shot at putting Obama out of a job. The question is, which Republican candidate do we really want occupying the Oval Office during these tumultuous times. I know I don’t want Ron Paul acting as the leader of the free world. Going from a self avowed Marxist to an isolationist doesn’t sound like progress to me. I would love to see Bachman rise to the top, stomp Obama at the polls, and send the liberal Palin-mockers spiraling into a fit of BDS. Have no doubt, if the first woman president happened to be a conservative and a…….everyone cover your ears…. pro life Christian with traditional conservative values, the far left would be seeking psychiatric help in droves…think Florida 2002.
Sadly, I’m not sure the United States has changed its attitude about women in leadership positions enough, especially among elderly voters, to elect a woman as our President and Commander in Chief. Any serviceman will tell you that women have just as much responsibility, and fill just as many high ranking positions in every branch of the military, but there just aren’t that many civilians that are aware of that. Female troops no longer sit behind desks, or just work as nurses and secretaries for high ranking men. They fly aircraft worth millions, work as linguists in the middle of war zones, and the list goes on. If the brave women of our armed forces can risk their lives right along side men, they can certainly do a better job than Obama as our acting Commander in Chief, and leader of the greatest country on earth.
Anyway, it will be interesting to see who rises to the top of the Republican Ticket. Lord, just don’t let it be Romney. Sure, he’s got the economic credentials to clean the floor with Obama in a debate, but can you picture the man as the Commander in Chief of our troops. If you can, think a bit on all of the wars we’re involved in right now, the instability in the Middle East, the “Arab Sring” that will likely become the “Arab nightmare”. Think about the alliances being formed between Arab countries like Syria, Iran, etc., and Russia, always there and willing to provide intelligence, arms, and a great deal of experience and technology gained from a long Cold War with the United States.
The U.S. economy is in trouble, no doubt. But, the world is on the brink of something big that isn’t just about a global economic crisis, or one of many wars around the world. Even more importantly, it’s about a spiritual battle. If you want to be on the right side of that battle, choose your leaders wisely and be certain they will never turn their back on Israel – not just the country, but God’s chosen people, the Jews. Our battle is not against politicians or countries, but against spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12). We will need a president who talks, and LISTENS, to God, whether that be a man or a woman.
