It’s hard to put into words what many of us may feel after election night. I am as stunned as many of you are, but I guess all of this shouldn’t surprise us. Ultimately, it was never Mitt Romney, nor Paul Ryan, who was going to save us. Of course, the only one that can save our nation isour Lord Jesus Christ. He and our Blessed Mother Mary are the ones that can carry us through the coming persecution of our faith.
We must get used to the idea that this nation, like many fallen empires before it, is collapsing before our very eyes. The idyllic America that we onceknew is no more. The election and now re-election of President Barack Obama was something that God foresaw long ago.
Barack Obama and the rest of the politicians that subscribe to his humanist philosophies were all put here to test our mettle. They were brought to us so we could show where we truly stand.
We now wake up to a new America where the people in Maine, Maryland, and Washington state have voted to approve the redefinition of marriage. Minnesota rejected a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between one man and one woman. We face an even steeper hill now to defend all that is good, all that is right, and all that is God’s will.
“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded; the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”
It has been reported that these are the words of Obama’s righthand woman, Valerie Jarrett. It is alleged that she said all this during an impromptu speech to three senior staffers running Obama’s re-election campaign in Chicago. There are reliable sources who have confirmed that these are in fact Jarrett’s words; we now know in no uncertain terms where this administration stands.
If it is payback time, as Jarrett says, all I can say is: Bring it on. We will not be intimidated by this woman, or her boss Barack Obama, who two days before the election told supporters at a rally to vote for revenge.
We know how the story ends and with that confidence we will persevere. Jesus our Lord did not shed His Most Precious Blood for us to wilt and back down. Our Lord expects us to stand for His truth and through the Holy Sacrifice of the Masses said throughout the world every day, we will continue to receive the graces and strength to defeat whatever the enemy throws our way.
