What do you say… Obama’s campaign rallies have turned into healing services? O, I understand the heat, the long wait and the extremely crowded venues. That’s not what I’m talking about… I’m simply observing the emotional connection created when there is a ‘medical situation’ and crowds are unified by hope for the individual’s swift recovery… then to couple that with Obama presiding over the vigil… well, a great prescription for the party. What do you think… think folks are going to see these episodes and not give a hoot about policies (or experience or moral opinions or historical events or even the complexities of law and government) and just based on his eloquent handling of these situations will think: Ah… give us king obama? Give us a healer. Give us anything.
So, Go Ron Paul… I know it’s a long shot, maybe… but it’s not over… by a long shot.
A long time ago I began to some verses that have come to mind many times – especially in light of all these things in our nation and world. I have considered over and over that it, in reality, is God who sets up kings and takes down nations. Everything that is is allowed to be because of His sovereignty and His discretion. Amazing. The passage I was reading and considering is this:
“Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. ” — Daniel 2.20-22
