Preparing to Vote

Note about this political cycle:
It’s almost over! I don’t particularly like talking about politics per se, but I am very concerned about America and most concerned about American’s who don’t know our history or our founding principles. When you don’t understand, it’s easy to fall for counterfeits and replacements. This election is chocked full of good and bad choices that either do or don’t reflect the values and principles that have made our country the envy of the world. Those values and principles do not carry partisan labels, but must be used to discern the good and the bad of candidates, judges, issues, and to see through their political labeling. That is not an easy job, and the easy way out would be to either not vote at all, or just vote on one or two of them and leave the rest. What I am about to say may be strong, but…it is irresponsible to not do your ballot homework. America is depending on you to make the right choices. Broad participation of an informed electorate is the key to good government. You cannot leave it to the partisan ballot box stuffers who only vote on one or two things. Do your own homework or find someone you really trust to help guide you. Elections have consequences. They do not just affect you, but your family and generations to come. I’m glad our founding fathers did not just think about themselves; they were thinking generations ahead. May God give us that kind of unselfish love and genuine patriotism as we prepare to enter the voting booth.
“Honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king.” – 1 Peter 2:17
