As the Republican nomination movement started to unfold, I looked at each candidate. Bachmann, Romney, Paul, Perry, Cain, Gingrich, Huntsman, Santorum, each had their strengths but there was something missing. I was looking for another Reagan, someone who could inspire. It wasn’t until I attended an Occupy Wall Street event that something began to change in me. I began to think of the 99%, the idea of “We the People” and I realized we are ALL the people. The conservative candidates began to look like they were only preaching to a particular constituency and I began to realize that only one candidate was actually trying to do something for all of the “We the People”. And that candidate was already in the White House and his name was Barack Obama. He was the one with the strong family, the true Christian values, the one that could serve and protect, “We the People”. And he has a record of trying to work with all constituencies when Republicans and Democrats were only concerned with their own elections.
I found the Tea Party for Obama and it all made sense. The Tea Party could stand for values and not have to hate Obama. They could support less government but not be afraid of helping their brothers and sisters through governmental enterprises and that is still compatible with the Gospel of Jesus. And the Tea Party can still change the world…with Obama.
