We should all be praying

Al Gore’s true colors certainly are not the red, white and blue of this nation. If Gore really had this nation’s interests at heart and wanted this issue resolved, he would have conceded after the first count of votes or even after the second.

Instead, he uses the media to communicate challenges to Bush and to call for a private meeting. If it was to be private, why didn’t he use his telephone and not the cameras? He is dragging the whole country through the legality of recounting votes a third time. Al Gore has the power to stop this nonsense anytime. Unfortunately for all of us, he chooses not to. Is this really the way he wants to win the presidency? Are his colors actually green and black?

I am a Republican, but I beg all of you to pray that whichever man wins this election, that it is the one that can best lead this nation through the challenges of our unknown future. This great nation, founded by our forefathers, has been slowly on a road to forsaking the God that the Pilgrims praised on that first Thanksgiving day – the same God George Washington prayed to when his men were starving and freezing during the Revolution. The same God Abe Lincoln spoke of in his addresses to the nation during the Civil War. The same God we pray to when we’ve finally hit desperation. Let’s hope and pray that God does not forsake our country, but grant us a great and honorable president, whomever it may be.
