Hi altura, According to the expert pundits, like know-it-all-Rove, only a handful of states will decide this election. Mine isn't one of them, so I'm going to be more of a disinterested party. My energies will be directed to state, local and the U.S. House and Senate races.

As for Romney, he robbed everyone of the primary all of us deserved. A primary of new ideas for a better America. A primary of real solutions for our real problems. The primary that Newt Gingrich, Herman Cain, Rick Perry and even Ron Paul tried to offer with new ideas until Romney started in with his vicious attack ads against his rivals, followed by Ron Paul with his similar ads.

The media and the GOP-E promoted Romney from the beginning and enough of the voters fell for his attacks ads, despite claims they hate them. Romney the big money candidate out spent all his rivals and he still has money!

Primaries are always rough and tough here. You know that. This one was particularly difficult, with the early exit of popular Herman Cain and the accusations flying at rapid pace. I tried my best to keep to Newt threads, while pinging Sarah's threads. I was all in for Newt Gingrich, (I sent him money), and Governor Perry was my second choice and he should have received the endorsement of those Evangelical pastors. I still think their endorsement would have immensely helped him. I thought Sarah Palin also liked the two of them best.

I believe praying is totally different from buying a lottery ticket, and I'll continue to pray. The convention remains months away and nothing is set in cement. Romney is not the certified nominee. In fact, he still doesn't have the required 1144 delegates. Anything can happen between now and the convention.

It's said that God works in mysterious ways. I have faith that He will help us save our Republic.

I won’t respond to your other stuff, but please don’t think I was comparing prayer to buying a lottery ticket.

I would not demean prayer in that fashion.

I was really referring to the hope you have in ‘something’ happening to prevent Romney from getting the nomination.

I pray all the time. But no matter how fervently I pray for something, I realize that one must add, Thy will be done. We don’t know God’s purposes. He’s given me some improbable blessings that I prayed for.

I’m now praying that Romney turns out to be a good president who selects quality advisers and turns this country around financially. It’s desperately needed.
