"Be a good citizen. All governments are under God. Insofar as there is peace and order, it’s God’s order. So live responsibly as a citizen. If you’re irresponsible to the state, then you’re irresponsible with God, and God will hold you responsible. Duly constituted authorities are only a threat if you’re trying to get by with something. Decent citizens should have nothing to fear." Romans 13:1-3 MSG
I just realized that with this election I have been a registered voter for 50 years!
Over those five decades I have missed voting in very few elections. Those were local city or country races that I was too new to the community to be informed or had not been able to register in time. But I have not failed to vote in any Presidential election or Congressional Mid-Term election. Nor will I going forward as long as I am able.
Voting in elections is a main priority of citizenship and good citizenship is a responsibility of Christians. Paul says as much in his letter to the Roman believers and they didn't even have the privilege of voting.
You and I are blessed to have the right to vote by virtue of being born as Americans. And we have to vote to be right as born-again Americans.
There have been a few elections over the years that were difficult to know how to vote. But this is not one of those. The issues are clear and the candidates hold distinctly different views of those issues.
Most Republican Candidates are not nearly as conservative as I wish they were but they are FAR more conservative than their Democrat opponents. There are some Democrats who are disturbingly radical and anti-American in their positions and views.
Part of your responsibility as a voter is to be a well-informed voter! You must know the issues and where candidates stand on those key issues.
I will be voting for those who have the best position on:
I will not vote for any candidate who will not or has not supported the rights of unborn children.
It will only vote for candidates who believe I should keep more of my money and the government should keep less of it. I support tax cuts and less government spending.
No economy will be sound unless it is creating a favorable climate for jobs to be created and businesses to grow. Job creation is fueled by lower taxes, fewer regulations, favorable interest rates and good trade policies.
Without well-defined and well defended borders there cannot be a nation.
A nation is defined by language, culture and borders.
You cannot have a strong united nation unless you have a common language that is spoken by your citizens. Just ask Babel about that.
You cannot have a nation unless you have a unique and identifiable culture! Culture consists of a value system, a set of customs, laws, a code of acceptable behavior and a dominant religion.
SUPREME COURT JUSTICES
