Bush WON! Great, now he can be President! Imagine if the DegenaRat won, we'd be sending aid to Afghanistan and probably exchanging nuclear scientists.

Frankly, I'm sick and tired of the recount baloney. An undercount/overcount is not a vote. Hell I just voted in West Texas with a punch card ballot. Geez no damn hanging chads at all. The demonrats can't win by cheating, by denying our military their vote or by having the liberal media counting for him. The election was over long ago. And the man touched by God to be President during these times is in office and doing a fine job. Even Gorons think so.

Bush is president, legally, regardless of the ballot count. But he's not "touched by God" to be president. That's lunacy, but even worse it's Un-American. You spit on the graves of those who died for a country whose leaders are selected by the people, not "God".........Don't do that.

Go find someone else to put that spew on. My family fought in the American Revolution, Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korean, Vietnam and I'll be damned if you excuse me of spitting on graves because I hold not the opinion, but the conviction that my President was touched by God.

"He [Bush] is not 'touched by God' to be president. That's lunacy, but even worse it's Un-America."

Where do you speak from? Iraq? Afghanistan? Saudi Arabia? If anyone ought to know about "lunacy," you seem to be a prime candidate.

Mr. DOOD,

IMHO, this nation has always, and hopefully will always, be guided by the Almighty in all things that are done. Observe the bounty, the spirit of our people, and the great works of mercy done by the USA around the world. We are the envy of the world, and this is because of the blessings of GOD.

George BUSH is inspired and directed by GOD, and we, ALL Americans, will reap the harvest of that inspiration. I must say that GOD will not abandon this nation, and we will not abandon Him.

You may not believe this, as I suspect, and that is within your right. But for me, and I know, many other Americans, it is simply a matter of faith.

Howlin, I don't mind if someone disagrees with me on the President being touched by God. But I'll darn well not take that my comment is un-American or spitting on the graves of those who fought under the flag of this nation. It is not just the men and women who died in action or from their wounds that I'd be spitting on; but, every Gold Star Mother...or spouse left widowed with children to raise. And I would not do that to anyone who gave so much for the life I am able to live now. Especially on Vet's Day.

In honor of my Uncle Robert...died from wounds received Naples, Italy; WWII.

You didn't say touched by God. You said "touched by God to be president. I.e., our leaders are anointed by God. The antithesis of American democratic principles.

No argument here on any of the above. All of which is very different from saying someone was "touched by God to be president". That's fanaticism.

And my great great great great great grandfather fought alongside George Washington during the American Revolution. I don't like ANYBODY accusing any of MY relatives of not being patriotic!

Taliban thinks Osama was chosen by god. Guess everyone agrees God chooses leaders. Why bother with elections? Let Bush anoint the next leader and so on. Beats good old fashion American democracy. All those lives lost in battle for such a foolish notion.

Divine Right of Kings: a theory which argued that certain kings ruled because they were chosen by God to do so and that these kings were accountable to no person except God. Kings claimed complete temporal power came to them by divine will. In England, it was used to justify royal absolutism. Fanaticism, and unAmerican. For shame.

I am continually astounded at the utter idiocy running rampant. The Florida election law says that only a single vote for a presidential candidate constitutes a valid vote. No hole punched is a no vote. A multiple vote is an invalid vote, which is the same as a no vote. A punch that isn't sufficient to remove the chad results in an invalid vote, which is the same as a no vote. Period. There is no mystery here. Besides, Cook County in Illinois had a greater number of over/under votes than did Florida.

You tell 'em, Nance! The DIMocRATS are backing President Bush more than I EVER thought they would. Blacks have started to come around and that's a GOOD thing! Those that continue to UNDERestimate GWB are destined to be shown wrong in history. . .IMHO. . .

Why is it that people think that Bush was annointed by God? He was chosen by the people of the United States. Touched by God? That's blasphemous, and totally stupid. If he had been chosen by God, he would have won by a much bigger margin than he did. Leave God out of it. He doesn't involve Himself in our elections. Two words: free will.

Your comments about "touched by God" are fair enough, but Bush won because he got more (legitimate) votes and because Gore was unsuccessful at stealing the election. And I thank God for that.

I said what I meant to say...that President Bush was touched by God to be President. I believed it with every prayer I said last year. I believed it with the prayer I said when he was sworn into office. I believed it with every prayer I've said for him since that time.

You have the right to think the way you do dood...and I certainly have the right to believe as I do. God has blessed this nation immensely. Those who first came to this nation were certainly not anti-God. Did the founding fathers spit on graves when it was written in our Declaration of Independence:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

The God who gave us life, gave us liberty at the same time.
Thomas Jefferson: Summary View of the Rights of British America.

Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just.
Thomas Jefferson: Notes on Virginia. Query xviii. Manners

We are fighting for the dignity and happiness of human nature. Glorious it is for the Americans to be called by Providence to this post of honour."
Ben Franklin (1777)

"I must own I have so much faith in the general government of the world by Providence that I can hardly conceive a transaction of such momentous importance to the welfare of millions now existing, and to exist in the posterity of a great nation, should be suffered to pass without being in some degree influenced, guided, and governed by that omnipotent, omnipresent, and beneficent Ruler."
Ben Franklin(1788)

And lastly, the U.S Capitol Prayer Room Window. In this stained-glass window, the kneeling figure between images of the Great Seal is George Washington. Around him is the 16th Psalm's appeal: "Preserve me, O God, for in Thee do I put my trust."

Friend, I truly think that you need to think about this. You have shown that YOUR opinion is important to YOU. I don't have a problem with that. But I DO think you do NOT respect the person that you FLAME because of the RESPECT that person shows for our leader who is under a GREAT deal of stress due to the recent tragedy. Think about THAT if you would, ok? Thanks. . .

Please put aside your own opinion for a moment and consider these verses from scripture.

"And he changeth the times and the seasons; he removeth kings and setteth up kings........" Daniel 2:21"

"Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God. The powers that be are ordained by God." Romans 13:1.

In a democratic republic God uses the voters to execute his sovereign will in the matter of "ordaining" leaders, but he always remains in control behind the scenes. You might ask, "Did God ordain Clinton?" It may be hard to accept that God "ordained" someone like Clinton to hold the nation's highest office, but I believe he has his own reasons for whatever he does even though we often can't see it here and now.
Christians have to rely on this promise:

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." Romans 8:28

And on this admonition:

"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding." Proverbs 3:5.

You don't have to believe me, but you would be wise to believe God's word.
