Ok, so not being one to normally talk to people about politics unless asked my opinion, I am going to step out there and blog about it. Since it is my blog, I guess I can break my own "rules", right?
I am sure that there are people out there reading that don't agree with my choice of President (and I use that term loosely since I don't feel that I have a choice based on my morals and beliefs) and that is fine to disagree with me. However what I want to encourage you to do is to really take the time in the next 13 days to really think about who you are choosing to vote for. First and foremost, you need to get out there and vote. It's your duty as an American and your right to do so. Please don't do this without praying about it though. Ask God for direction in who He would want you to vote for. Be still and listen for direction, He is sure to answer that for you. This incoming President is going to greatly impact our nation, possibly more than ever before. Our children and grandchildren will feel the effects of this new Presidency and its effects either good or bad. If you are concerned with sanctity of life, protection of marriage being one man and one woman, and the tax and spend policies, you will think long and hard and really research and know your choice of candidate. In the past, Americans and in particular Christians are not always so eager to get out there and have their voices heard. November 4th is your chance. I urge you to take the opportunity and the gift you have been given and get out and vote! Let your God given voices be heard!
Please join me in praying for our nation and for those that will be in power. The late Reverand Billy Graham said this; "To get nations back on their feet, we must first get down on our knees."
See you at the poles!
