Halloween Came Late This Year
An Editorial

Barry Worrell - March 15, 2010

That's right, perhaps you didn't recognize it, all dressed up in it's brilliant costume, it officially arrived on November 6, 2012 pretending to be the National Election. Maybe you didn't notice it's been around for several months now, but only until yesterday did it knock on your door and proclaim 'Trick or Treat". For those of us who didn't answer, it found many who did. They not only got the treat, but it was a trick disguised as a treat. The sad part is those who didn't answer must also suffer the trick.

I wonder about those folks who voted for Obama. The facts were there before them, so they must not have paid attention to the facts. Compared to Mr. Romney's, Obama has, and had, no record to merit our favor. There must have been something else. Must be that he's a cool, likeable guy, a guy that raised our national debt 8 trillion dollars more than when he came to office. 

Maybe it was because he was a community organizer, but by his own way of thinking, "He didn't do that, others did". Also by his own admission, he has never had a job, at least a job like you and I. A job where you pay into Social Security, a contract with the United States government to be paid back when we retire, and also it going to those who never paid into the system. Yeah, that must have been it.

How about growing the federal government 13%, or 42% more folks on food stamps. We have to pay for that too.

Could it be there's more people receiving than people that are working to support them? Could that be the reason?

Another question for you. If you were in the position of having to have someone come into your home and run your household, which one would you want?

As you can tell, I'm am greatly disappointed in the outcome. But I have one great consolation, and it comes from the Bible: "Romans 13:1 - Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God."

I'm not saying you have to believe that. But believe it or not, we're in "a heap of trouble."
