What I see for President Barack Obama's future from Nov. 6 and after is instead a victory for the common sense that our forefathers fought for this nation.

I see Obama as the present day Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar with the crown on his head and lifting the golden chalice he stole while sacking Jerusalem. He is looking at the wall whereupon the finger of God has written, "Mene Mene Terkel Upharsin," which the Bible interprets as "Your days are numbered and you are found wanting."

May I add that this contemporary king has sacked this nation, which God's providence helped George Washington to create. God never forgets.

So Obama will have plenty of time after November to visit his homeland and read his history.

This is our prayer to God for Obama's demise.
