Whom In The World Am I Going to Vote For This Time? Part II


 

By the time the 2008 election came I saw a Republican Party that was quickly abandoning their conservative roots. The liberal intimidation of the press was working. Republicans were no longer proud of embracing conservatism. McCain represented more of the same. McCain represented “pastel colors” in a time when we needed “bold colors”. Surely the days of Reagan were over! By then I was no longer registered as a Republican, but as a Conservative Independent.

 

Reluctantly, I gave my vote to President Obama. I was impressed with the fact that he ran an amazing campaign against the Clinton’s political machine. As a minority I hope for the hope and change, for the great moment and for an America that will, at last, come together and seriously begin the healing and racial reconciliation. Wow, our first black President!

 

Yet, now we have today! Our President’s policies are making a bad thing worst. Perhaps he did not know that it was this bad. However, just as Sports are all about statistics and production, the game of politics also has its own numbers. Politics is a bloody game and we can’t effectively govern by continuing blaming the previous administration and by whining every time something negative is said against you. We can’t govern by calling every criticism against you racism. We can’t govern by using one group against the other, blacks against whites, rich against poor, small business owners against welfare recipients, etc.

Whom In The World Am I Going to Vote For This Time?


I voted for the first time in the elections of November of 1996. It was Bill Clinton fighting for his second term against Senator Bob Dole. Clinton, in my humble opinion, is one of the smartest politicians ever.

 

The Democrats lost the House and the Senate after a long season of dominance. Now the Republicans were in charge; it was a clear message that this nation was not appreciating the liberal agendas of big government. Bill Clinton recognized the need to either move his policies to the middle or become a one-term President. So Clinton, with his political genius, moved his policies to the middle and did a great job reforming welfare.

 

The Contract with America was indeed a revolution. In my humble opinion, the Contract with America was the last time the government actually did something valuable and beneficial for our nation. President Clinton’s personal life was in turmoil with many affairs and he was not perfect as a President. However, he knew how to inspire the nation.

 

After President Clinton I voted for Bush against Al Gore. I was not impressed with Bush, but he was, in my opinion, the better candidate. I again voted for Bush in 2004 over John Kerry. I was not necessarily inspired by neither one of them, but I wanted to use my right to vote.

Cuba Prepárate Para Recibir Las Flores


Mi corazón arde por el pueblo Cubano. Me siento en deuda con esa preciosa Isla. Aunque soy Puertorriqueño, mi corazón se quebranta por la más grande de las Antillas. Oh Jehová aquí estoy, mándame a este pueblo y lléname de tu Espíritu, para proclamar libertad a los cautivos. Hoy las palabras de la gran poeta Lola Rodríguez de Tio hacen eco resonante en mi alma cuando ella dibujó este pensamiento:

 

“Cuba y Puerto Rico son

De un pájaro las dos alas,

Reciben flores y balas

Sobre el mismo corazón…”

 

Fue un hombre de raza Cubana quien me habló de Jesús; fue él quien Dios utilizó para regalarme la gracia del Evangelio. Fue otro hombre, también Cubano, quién Dios utilizó para ser llamado mi primer pastor. ¡Estoy endeudado con Cuba¡ Mis ojos te verán libre mi querida Cuba, mis pies caminarán por tus playas, anunciaré el Evangelio de Cristo en tus costas, en tus valles y aún en tus montes. Porque Dios me ha dado Palabra para ti oh Cuba de mi alma y para ti me ha dado cántico nuevo. Ya nos veremos pronto; tu libertad ya se aproxima. Tu prosperidad ha sido reservada, tus riquezas son incontables y tu tierra aún es virgen. Oh Cuba de mi alma, sin duda que has recibido las balas, pero ya mismo recibirás las flores que adornarán tu corazón.

En Un Día Cuba Será Libre


Hermanos y hermanas prepárense porque el Señor dice a esta hora:

Tu libertad se aproxima, porque juzgo a la familia Castro severamente. Escucho el lloro de mi pueblo, la Iglesia de la isla de Cuba no está muerta, sino que está viva. Cuba, te estoy escuchando y estoy sonando la trompeta de mis misericordias, dice el Señor. El corazón del pueblo cubano se tornará hacia Mi, porque te he amado desde el principio, dice el Señor. Cuba será una nación con un corazón conforme a Mi corazón y haré grandes  y maravillosas proezas. Las grandes naciones del mundo te han ignorado por demasiado tiempo, el mundo no te considera importante, pero la hora de tu redención ya viene. Vengo en contra de los dictadores del mundo que le han quitado la libertad a mi pueblo y le han cerrado las puertas a la predicación de mi Evangelio,  dice Jehová. Les mostraré el poder de mi amor y voy a traer verdad en lugares llenos de mentiras. ¡Cuba es libre¡ ¡Cuba es libre¡ ¡En un día Cuba será libre¡
