An update on the comment I sent to an on-line friend earlier this week, who assumed that since I was nice to her, our politics would be the same. Below is an excerpt of the letter she sent back, after assuring me that she would not remove me from her mailing list:
“McCain is not the best candidate for president, and I would be very surprised if he or any other Republican candidate wins in November. Aside from that, I will not vote for Obama. I don’t know much about his background, or even where he stands on important issues like abortion, war, economy, etc. In a nutshell, McCain is the lesser of two evils.”
She won’t vote for Obama, believes him to be the lesser of two evils, but admits that she doesn’t know anything about him. Part of me is just twitching right now, wanting to email back the obvious question: If you don’t know anything about Obama, then how did you decide that he was the greater of two evils?
She then goes on to say that she thinks God has a plan for our country. I believe he has a plan for the whole world, and few are following it. A lot of people are sitting around waiting for him to fix everything for us, but I suspect that the movie “Oh God!” got it right, that God gave us the world and it’s up to us to fix what’s wrong.
