Thom Tillis upset Kaye Hagan in North Carolina, yesterday, to insure that Republicans will control the Senate in 2015-2016.
There were quite a few upsets, and, with all the excitement in the air, there were many words spoken. On a personal note, I believe that Thom Tillis made a statement that needs to go down in history, documented and remembered. Senator Elect Tillis went straight to the heart of what has made America great. Anyway, here is what Thom Tillis said last night:
” …stop accepting this idea that people want to be provided for by the government. There’s only one thing government can give you that doesn’t come at the expense of anyone else and that is freedom.”
Please continue to pray for our nation, for President Obama, and these new leaders who will soon take office. Our nation will only do well when our citizens pray for our leaders.
“1I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior…” –1 Timothy 2:1-3
