Picking a President

1. I will vote for the most pro-life candidate, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood. Proverbs 6:16-17
2. I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because God blesses those who bless Israel & curses those who curse them. Genesis 12:1-3
3. I will vote for the most pro-man-and-woman-marriage candidate, because God clearly establishes and defines marriage in Genesis 2:21-24
4. I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes that the purpose of government is to reward the good & punish the evil. Romans 13
5. I will vote for the most pro-debt reduction candidate, because the borrower is servant to the lender. Proverbs 22:7
6. I will vote for the most pro-work candidate because God says if a man does not work, neither shall he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10
7. Finally, I will vote based as close as I can on God’s Word, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, knowing that whoever gets elected, God is the one who puts men in authority. Daniel 2:21

Go.  Vote.  Pick wisely.  God always keeps his promises.


FORWARD With Obama…

For those who don’t think Obama is steering this nation straight into socialism (on onto the path toward communism), you might want to take another look at what he has already accomplished.

In his own words…

For those who think “he doesn’t know what he’s doing”, you are wrong.  He knows EXACTLY what he is doing.  Stop calling him an idiot.  He’s brilliant.  He is calculating and manipulative, and a masterful truth twister.  And he’s a shameless liar.

He is NOT a failed president!!!!  As president, he has made great strides towards his goal…his goal being to fundamentally change America.  He has been greatly successful in his promise to do this!  He’s doing EXACTLY what he was voted in to do…he is implementing his agenda by every means possible.

The question is not “is Obama good for America?”.  Because if you believe in what Obama is doing then of course, you believe he is.  And if you are that person, this is not a plea to your sensibilities.  You think he’s awesome and doing great things.  And you’re smart and have thought it through and know what it is that you want.  I get that.  This post is for those who maybe aren’t so sure.  The question for those people is this…is this REALLY what you want for America?  If it is, vote for the guy and enjoy what he’s gonna do to you.  Not FOR you, because SOCIALISM and communism DO NOT WORK…and in the end, the ones in charge politically are the only ones who “succeed”…because they, like everyone else don’t have their own success, but unlike you, they have YOURS.  That is what the “shared success” we keep hearing about truly is.  You share your success with those in charge and their protégés, and with those in their lines of patronage.

If you believe that life isn’t fair, join the club.  It’s not.  But do you really think that it’s not YOUR job to help level the playing field?  It is, you know. It’s YOUR job and it’s MY job to rescue orphans and to feed the hungry and to care for widows.  It’s the responsibility of INDIVIDUALS to help each other.  Is that a responsibility you want to abdicate even more to the government and to bureaucrats?

If you have a little nagging voice in the back of your head that makes you question if you made, and continue to make, the right decision in supporting Obama, I think you need to listen to that little voice.  If you think at all that maybe he’s bringing something to America that isn’t at all what America is about, you need to listen to that voice.  Later, if you decide that what he’s all about is what you truly want, you can move things in that direction.  But once Obama gets a second term, it will be nearly impossible to return to what America once was.  Do you want America changed fundamentally even more?  Do you want an Obama who will have even “more flexibility” in doing what he wants in a second term???  He wants you to go forward with him, because he knows, he KNOWS, that if you do, there won’t be any going back.

Are you ready for that? Are you REALLY???

You Should Have To Take a Test…

…to be able to prove you know enough to be voting!

I’m not a fan of Howard Stern’s, but this bit is a good bit.  It’s clean, don’t worry!  🙂

While this is just a couple of everyday people on the street who unabashedly claim support of (both) presidential candidates, they clearly are uninformed on the most basic issues.  By extension, one must draw the conclusion that when it comes to the details and nuances of what the candidates believe and plan to do, they are completely ignorant of any facts.  My guess is it didn’t take too long to find enough uninformed voters for this piece.  I believe that uninformed voters will be voting en masse for both candidates in this election.  I can only hope that there is an uninformed voter on each side to cancel each other’s votes out!

I have to tell you that the “get out the vote” movements bother me.  If an American isn’t interested enough in the electoral process and in voting to get themselves registered and get out and vote on their own, I’m not sure I trust that they will then do the work necessary to vote as an informed voter.  If the only information they are basing their vote on is gleaned from TV commercials or MySpace ads, I think they should best stay home.  If you don’t even know who the running mate of your candidate is…well then, that’s just unacceptable.

Voting is a right.  Voting and knowing who and what you are voting for is a responsibility.

And when it comes to voter registration and voter fraud, why can’t we dunk our thumbs in purple ink so that you get one vote, one time?  It’ll be obvious if you’ve already voted.  I’ve seen this work quite well somewhere else….

I close by saying, on Tuesday go and vote, but please do so responsibly.
