Bill Muehlenberg looks at the Palin phenomenon through the “big picture lens,” and sees a stark contrast in this year’s race.
The defining issue of the American presidential race in general, and the choice of Palin in particular, is that of worldviews. Two mutually exclusive worldviews are battling it out for the heart and soul of America. One values life, liberty, faith and family. One values statism, secularism and social engineering. These are incompatible worldviews. Thus the stakes are high, and the left is upset – big time.
It seems that every election cycle, the gap between these two worldviews widens. At some point, I fear, the divide will be unbridgable.
