May it be over!!! The supposed will of the people…my a@$!

“I wonder if He anticipates the day when He can make us understand
what was occurring in our time of trial.
I wonder if He broods over our sorrows.”

(today’s early voting sticker/ Julie Cook / 2020)

So today was the first day of early voting for Georgia’s pivotal runoff, the runoff slated for January 5th.
The runoff that the entire country seems to have a bullseyes on…

Since today is December 14th, we are doomed to those unending commercials
for the next 23 days.

My husband and I obviously, given the photo of the sticker, participated
in the early voting process.

I asked the gal who was charged with registering me how this first day had been…
she told me that early on, it was “cray-cray”—meaning folks had lined up way early in
the cold morning rain on a December Monday…
but after that, for the remainder of the day, it had been steady.

I heard it was a good two-hour wait in Atlanta.

This being day one of early voting.

I still don’t understand how Trump lost the election…but what do I know???
I simply show up for early voting, wait my time, and cast my vote.

And so we will now wait, as the nation appears to be descending upon poor
little ol Georgia en masse.

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents,
more and more closely, the inner soul of the people.
On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire
at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

    I’m with you on being sick of these political commercials! I was #68 to early vote at the precinct we went to and didn’t have to wait in line. Looking at my ballot before putting it in the machine I thought, “I sure hope my vote gets counted.”

    • we were fortunate that we walked in and went through the steps readily.
      I was a bit concerned that I knew the poll worker could see my voting machine by looking over my shoulder and she could see my votes—but I put the printed ballot in the scanner and it showed that it was counted so we shall see.
      Now if both Mr. Oshoff and Warnock would both go away, I’d be happy!!!

    This has truely been the biggest mess in recent history. I still have faith that God will have mercy on us and everything will turn out. The whole world depends on the US to promote freedom….but we have read the last chapter and …..

    As I understood it, there are seven states with contested electors. That is, not only did the governor present a slate of electors (for Biden), but so did the Republican party (for Trump). So we won’t know until January 5th whether Trump won or not. It will go to Congress, where Trump should win since there are more Republican states and it is one vote per state for the President. There is hope.

    For the first time in my life I have no faith in the American voting system. I hope and pray the Georgia vote is fair and just but really how could it be when you look at what happened nationally? Banana Republic may be too tame a word.

    Glad you guys got your votes in!

    If you listen to “some” people, it was rigged long before anyone voted. There is so much fake news out there on both sides, we are heading for disaster regardless – unless we, as a Nation, repents.

    So crazy how important this state election is! I was upset when I heard the news about the electoral college. But then I prayed and God calmed me . I listened the several sermons the next day about God working behind the scenes (just happened to be next on my podcast list!) . I felt much better after I thought about God being in charge . “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. – Romans 8:28
