I see you guys' point, however I do remember how he was seen as the village idiot by the press at first, and then when travelling abroad, conducting
himself as a proper leader of the nation, shmoozing well with other leaders and even cozying up to Vlad Putin. The stances he has taken with regards
to topics such as Kyoto/Johanasburg and Israel I agree with and am glad he has the backbone to stand for us and not against us due to international
It has seemed to me that the world's governments and the U.N. has stood against us and viewed us as only something to use when needed and revile any
other time, and whether or not our leadership stands for the people it represents or not, that view would not change.
On the homefront, he surprised many of us, even those of us who voted for him, by the way he maneuvered the democratic party the last couple of years.
He displayed political savvy that I for one did not believe he had.
Again, as far as the rapture is concerned, I can't see any way that the U.S. will have a part in that, except maybe by participating in U.N. actions.
As a matter of fact, in order for the events to unfold that will bring us to the point where nations will be able to move against Israel and
international turmoil will come about the U.S. will not be able to be a player, either because we do not have a strong leadership that does the right
thing regardless of opinion, or we are no longer able to do anything, such as a significant strike against us.
Considering all the world suffering and considering the rapture would be the event that indicates that the time of suffering has a definite set amount
of time, it is selfish of me to say that I hope it isn't soon. I enjoy hanging out with you guys alot.
