One Week and Counting

What do we know about our candidates? Democrats say Romney is a liar, with only rich friends, that will kill jobs. Republicans say Obama is a friend of rich killers that's lying about jobs. So, there we have it in a nutshell. If we read or listen to both sides at all, we discover we do not have a candidate who is worthy of our vote, much less one who should even be eligible for parole! A young man was doing some work for me recently, and he simply had a million dollar smile. I told him if he ever got tired of honest work, with that smile, he'd make a great politician. Seriously, what are we going to do after next week's election? Regardless of the results, many have already determined the election is rigged.
I've let my mind imagine a few potential scenarios. Say President Obama is re-elected. First the republicans will be up in arms about ACORN, George Soros, and Chicago . . . oh wait, they already are. So, if America still has President Obama at the helm, he's immediately a lame duck, unless there is new legislation brewing to repeal the 22nd amendment, or perhaps an Executive Order or signing statement. I'm not crazy about some of his Executive Orders, but I didn't care for some of G.W.'s or Clinton's or Bush 41's, or Reagan's, or . . . I'm thinking if Presidents are going to be allowed to make laws without Congressional approval, we should have Presidents we trust.
Will we enter war with Syria or Iran now that Iraq is "liberated" and the troops in Afghanistan are supposed to be on their way home? Or will we have a time of peaceful take-over and settle into further "captive entitlement" as our job creation lags and the conservatives pull their funding out of the general economy? We'll probably need our own military here to enforce the Health Care Reform Act . . .
Now, the flip side of this if we get new President Romney. That means there will be early 3 months of "special projects" and pardons as President Obama prepares to pass the mantle of leadership. Since he's claimed to be surprised at the big mess he walked into, I'm guess a lot can happen in those three months. When President Romney tells us all how it will be and finally unveils his economic plan that VP Ryan has already said is too complicated to explain, we'll probably discover what we've been discovering for years now. I'm guessing we might see a little increase in the interest rates, at least in lending. Not much will change for the better, but it will be the fault of Congress, the previous administration, or we must go abroad and share democracy by war. Basically, I'm guessing, regardless of who is seated in the Oval Office, America will continue to seek materialism, with half of the population dissatisfied and very wary of the leader and the other half blindly loyal.
For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness . . . Prophet of Holy Scripture
