Here in America we are voting for a new Senate and Congress today. The way of this country has been going in a very wrong direction especially in the past two years. It seems futile perhaps to think that 1 vote could make a difference, but what if that 1 vote weren’t cast and did make all the difference in the world? What if it were your vote?
First of all, I am not that much into politics but in the last 2 years it has perked my interest as I am now seeing our constitutional rights being taken away as if the constitution had no bearing on this country at all! Can we forget that blood was shed to give this country certain inalienable rights? Can we forget that all people were created equal in the eyes of God? But I’m afraid those rights are being taken away and given to those who are wealthy, since there is no longer a middle class to support the upper class. Does this concern me? Yes, I can’t compete with the elite and super wealthy and therefore I am expendable in their eyes. The backbone of America is crumbling due to job losses and that is still rising! Insurance and health care will be forced on everyone to pay for Obamacare beginning next year and then if you can’t afford it, you will be fined! When in the history of America were we ever forced to buy insurance we couldn’t afford? I’m sorry but this doesn’t make much sense to me at all.
Is voting a right or a privilege? As a Christian, it is still a privilege because not many countries have this right. I choose to vote to keep this a privilege because I don’t want to lose that all because I thought that voting wasn’t important.
Voting for the Christian is also a duty of stewardship. We must uphold the godly morals and fight to keep them. We may not have the most perfect politicians to vote for, but instead of getting caught up in all these rabbit trails that they lead us down, we have to see what it is these people believe in, where do they stand on moral issues such as abortion, stem cell research, same sex marriages? These are real issues and I know what God thinks about them and unless we start paying attention to these issues, we will continue to see this country slip into socialism by telling Christians they have no right to serve God in schools, courtrooms, and eventually in their own homes!
All I know is, I understand what God loves and what He hates and therefore that is good enough for me and these are the basics that I am looking at when I cast my vote. I can’t sit back and watch a politician who remains strattling both sides of the fence all for the name of power and fame at the cost of selling this country down stream. I am proud to still have this privilege to have a say in the future of this country. We owe it to our children and their children to take a stand and do what God has entrusted us to do.
Have you voted today?
