NRB Chief on Election Stakes

As often happens on this blog, intent of a post gets subsumed by something else for a while. I had intended on doing a post about multiculturalism on Monday, but got busy and couldn't get to it. Then today, I see this comment by NRB president Dr. Frank Wright about the stakes of the upcoming election. I knew I had to post a link to it.

Dr. Wright has it correct. The stakes are enormous, and I don't think people realize how close we are to losing the America envisioned by our Founders. The rot has been eating away at the core of the Constitution and our values for a long time—under both parties. But this time may well be the game changer of all game changers.

Barack Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform this country. I think if most Americans really understood what he means by fundamental transformation, they wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole. Mitt Romney was—and is—not my first choice for a Republican candidate. But I have hopes that, if he gets elected, he at least will respect our Founding Principles and values much more than the current crop of radical left activists in charge now. But reversing the slide will take much more than one election cycle. It will take a spiritual rebirth of our country. And that will not come from any candidate for office.

That has to begin with a nation falling on its knees in repentance and turning back to the God who allowed the nation to rise in the first place.
