I am here, not going anywhere!



I am going to say something here some may not like but here goes! I am a believer, I am an American, I am a patriot, I am a father, a husband, a grandfather, and Oh yes a Pastor! I will vote in the presidential election to do my part! If my candidate does not get elected you will never see me want to leave this country, I will stand beside those who need to be encouraged to stay strong. 

I am so tired of people making the comments they do, I will leave if this or that person gets elected! You are not threatening that because of the election, you are threatening that because you did not get your way, and that is the easy way to say I don't care about this country or it's outcome! 

This country was founded, whether you like it or not on, God, freedom from tyranny, a place no dictator could rule, there are so many more! Men and women gave their lives for this freedom that we so take advantage of and for granted! We cry and moan about so many things, it has become a country of spoiled children throwing tantrums! 

Well I will tell you this no one, and I mean no one will run me and my family from this country and for what it should stand for! If you feel like that then this is not your country in the first place! The sad reality of it all, if the complainers and protesters lived in countries whose freedoms are nothing like here, you would never get away with the rhetoric you do! 

And if you continued to threaten your countries leaders you would be found as traitors and tried as such! I am not sure it will get better here, since I believe in God's word I don't expect it to! But the thing I want to get across is I will never cut and run, I am an American, I was born here and I will die here! 

And I will never give up on anyone, the worse it gets the more Jesus I will share! We will only change this country one soul at a time! We all want changes but what are we willing to do to make these changes happen? Whining and complaining will not do it, siting back and doing nothing will not do it, protesting has never worked! 

You have to step up and step out! It amazes me that all the protesting and upheaval people are doing has done nothing to bring any peace to anyone, quit the contrary! All it has done is shown people, we have people with to much idle time on their hands and instead of doing constructive things they are destroying the very thing they claim they are trying to accomplish! 

They want the right to take others rights away totally contradicting their claim that people have rights! People should always have rights, except when the conflict with the law! Burning and destroying property that is not theirs is not a right, it is breaking the law! But since this country does not want to impose on their rights they are allowed to continue to break the law! 

People say they want equality for all, except for those who disagree with them, that is not true equality! Believers need to pray more, stand on their faith, live their faith, according to scripture! We cannot act like the world to get our point across either! Ugliness from either side accomplishes nothing except ugliness, hurt and separation! 

If we are to be united we have to be able to dialog and not argue, remembering Jesus only argued with the hypocritical religious people and talked to everyone else, He came to seek and save the lost He would not have done that by forcing, arguing, or any other way! Remember not all who heard Him speak accepted Him! 

That said, and I will repeat myself, no matter who gets in, I will not desert this country, I may not be happy but I will continue to try and make a difference! I love you all, we may not agree but but I am here!!!
