Who can really help us?

April 16, 2008 - Cheryl Clarke
The primary election is less than a week away, and here we are, still wondering who would make the best candidate to lead our nation. Traditionally, a Democrat president means higher taxes, but a Republican candidate could pro-long the Iraq War. Right now, the economy is the top issue to Americans, displacing the war for the first time in nearly 5 years. Obama is young and he has the vote of the young, including my own two sons. Clinton comes with the name - and the baggage, including the husband; and John McCain seems a bit too old to be taking on such a high pressure and high stakes job. Politics is politics and they all make promises that they are never truly able to deliver, so I don't see a super candidate standing out amongst the three that I can truly get behind. I am a conservative Christian, with a conservative political viewpoint, and though I can't trust the promises of man (or woman), I know I can trust God. I will be praying ever more diligently for guidance as the general election approaches, that our nation also will trust God and make the right choice for president of our great nation. With terrorism a continuing threat, and now fuel and food costs spiraling out of control, these are truly perilous times for all of us, We need now more than ever, to place our faith in our Creator.
