Can America be saved, if it doesn’t want to be saved?

Terry Morris writes:

I’d lay good money down on Obama’s re-election short of divine intervention, which I don’t expect at all. Why would God intervene to save America when America does not want to be saved?

But how many Americans who want to be saved would it take? Abraham managed to negotiate God down to ten good men in Sodom, but stopped. I think there was only one good man there, and God rescued him. Peter writes about this (2 Peter 2:4-9):

For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;

And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;

And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:

(For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds;)

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished

If God were to bring judgment on America, he knows how to rescue the righteous.

Sadly, I came to the same conclusion a couple months ago. Romney would have to win the general by at least a couple points in order to overcome the other party’s thuggish and/or illegal tactics, and I just don’t see that happening right now. Heck, Obama could probably spend the rest of days sipping ice tea while the media replays his campaign footage from 2008 and still win re-election. I really believe that.
