So here’s what I’m thinking……
Tomorrow is a big day. A really big day. This country will choose between going “forward” with socialist ideas/doctrines that will forever change this country….like wealth redistribution, government run healthcare, banks, you name it…….or it will turn back to it’s roots, a nation founded on Godly principles, freedom, and the pursuit of happiness for all who are blessed to live here….
We all have our priorities that dictate to us how we choose to vote for people in office. For some, it’s strictly ideologic; for some economics; for some race; for some social agendas; for some moral issues. If you are voting for a strictly an ideological, party ticket, I would be curious why. Aren’t American’s prided on being free thinkers? Thinkers who can assimilate information and come to their own conclusion? If we are “told” by a party, an ideological leader, a rock star, a political party, how to think, act, and vote – is that truly freedom?? Are we so shallow that we forfeit our right to think for ourselves to determine what is right or wrong? What is moral or just? What is for the good of the country?
We go round and round in circles…..first voting in one political party, then another, hoping and praying all the while for leaders and government workers, who truly do have the interest of the country at heart…….
I believe there are some of those out there. I pray there are some of those out there. We live in what I believe to be, one of the most amazing countries in the world. We have been blessed beyond measure here in this country for many years. It came at a cost. The cost of those who risked life, liberty and family to set out for a new world free from tyranny – where men could be free to pursue their lives and livelihood as they saw fit, with whatever effort they choose to put into it. Some were successful, some were lazy. They each reaped the benefit of their efforts.
It came at a cost of two world wars, when that tyranny and moral injustices reared it’s ugly head again……and the men and women of this country rose up and fought again against it…..
It came at a cost of a number of other wars, where our sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, have put their lives on the line – and indeed continue to do so this very day – to continue to keep this country safe and free.
Let us not squander this gift. Let us be mindful, prayerful, and reverent, as we do our American Duty to vote to preserve this Country.
I join with many of my friends today, as we pray for this Nation, and the people of this Nation, as we head to the polls tomorrow……
And as always, hold your loved ones close and never let go……..
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual — or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” –Samuel Adams
