Which Candidate Will the GOP Nominate?

Nine candidates, one goal; to become the president of the United States of America. Michele Bachman, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Rick Perry were each ready to give answers on why he/she would be the best choice for America as president. Each offered a career experience in the politics, except Herman Cain, who ran unsuccessfully for the US Senate. He instead boasts a successful career as a former Chief executive of Godfather’s Pizza, and an Atlanta based radio talk show host.

Each made his/her arguments offering solutions to the severe economic problems and woes facing our nation. Each came up with a plan to work to get Americans back to work and cut the deficit.

The US census shows that 1 in 6 Americans live in poverty. The unemployment rate is now above 9%. This administration promised the stimulus package would be instrumental in keeping unemployment from reaching 8%, but failed to keep the promise.

Perry accused Romney of being just like President Obama. Massachusetts has a healthcare program quite similar to the medical healthcare coverage passed by this administration.

Since the debate, Herman Cain has jumped over the successful Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, who has been instrumental is turning the economy around in the state of Texas. Cain was ahead in a recent Florida poll. He recently appeared on the View after his leap in the polls.

Some have compared Rick Perry to George W. Bush, who is being blamed for the economy even now. .However, remember, at it’s onset, Bush tried unsuccessfully to cut taxes, etc., to get the economy flowing again, while the democratic congress voted the plans down in 2006. It was also noted that the Governor had nothing new to add in the recent debate.

The upcoming months will be crucial in deciding on the right candidate to lead our nation. We are a nation who has forgotten its roots. We began as “One nation under God,” but now the very mention of God and prayers to him are no longer politically correct in some assemblies; most recently at the 9/11 memorial service. Of course, it was prayers to God, during that time, led by the former President George W. Bush that helped in the healing process, after those horrific terrorist attacks.

We said, “We will never forget, but America, we have forgotten. May the GOP remember and nominate a candidate that upholds the Christian values our nation was founded upon.

Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:14 (KJV)
