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.


Romney’s “Goose Cooking” Vote Cast By Michael Moore Should Not Be Counted

From twitter earlier today:

Romney – you see this? This is me cooking your goose. In Michigan. Where the trees are used to make ballots to defeat upic.twitter.com/hxmvyUxA.

This was the picture that was linked.  To make sure we knew just HOW MM was cooking that goose, this image was ALSO provided:

Are you supposed to tweet a picture of your ballot?  Not in Michigan, you’re not.

Act 116 of 1954

168.738 Voting; ballots; folding; deposit in ballot box; rejection for exposure.

Sec. 738.

(1) Before leaving the booth or voting compartment, the elector shall fold his or her ballot or each of the ballots so that no part of the face shall be exposed, and with the detachable corner on the outside. Upon leaving the booth, the elector shall at once deliver in public view the ballot or ballots to the inspector designated to receive the ballot or ballots. Except as provided in subsection (2), the inspector shall tear off the corner of the ballot, where perforated, containing the number and shall then in the presence of the elector and the board of inspectors deposit each ballot in the proper ballot box without opening the ballot.

(2) If an elector shows his or her ballot or any part of the ballot to any person other than a person lawfully assisting him or her in the preparation of the ballot or a minor child accompanying that elector in the booth or voting compartment under section 736a, after the ballot has been marked, to disclose any part of the face of the ballot, the ballot shall not be deposited in the ballot box, but shall be marked “rejected for exposure”, and shall be disposed of as are other rejected ballots. If an elector exposes his or her ballot, a note of the occurrence shall be entered on the poll list opposite his or her name and the elector shall not be allowed to vote at the election.

Apparently his ballot should be “rejected for exposure”.

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.
