Why I'm not voting for Obama

In my last post I lamented the fall of Conservatism. So with the title of this post and the content of my previous post I bet you think you are going to get a good dose of classic right-wing talk. Not exactly. Part of my effort to build a new attractive conservatism is coupled with my research into culture, who makes it, how its formed, etc. As a Christian - I have been taking these findings and crossing them with what the Bible presents in terms of making culture. Throw in an election and you get a real mess. Surprisingly, enough the Focus on the Family letter from 2012 gave me the mental clarity to get it all out. However, I want to be clear, I am not affirming the letter nor am I condemning it. It is extreme in its premise, but presents some real possibilities (maybe in 20 years not 4) based on real trends that one should consider. The following is coming from a Christian point of view.

The fall of conservatism.

This election will mark the beginning of the end for conservatism. Look at the signs:

1.) A Country that looks to and depends on the federal government rather than the state and local governments.
2.) A societal mind-set that is relativistic.
3.) An economy that is moving toward socialism.
4.) An elite group (wealthy & educated, communicating how they "think it should be") ruling the working class (in debt, under educated, frustrated that "it isn't how it should be.")
