"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance." Psalms 33:12
As we are studying American History now, I'm reminded more than ever of the price our forefathers paid for our freedoms that we enjoy as Americans today. They paid at HUGE price for it, actually. And that is why this election is SO important.
Today, I will be casting my vote for John McCain/Sarah Palin. Why do I vote for this team? In one word, it is simply FREEDOM. The only way any nation has ever survived is to have freedom of the people. I want the leader of America to be a man/woman that believes and trusts in the principles upon which America was founded and make decisions based upon these principles. Any yes, this nation and it's principles were founded on God. Under this, ALL can prosper.
Yes, we've had some hard times economically (which is NOT all the President's fault...he has fought a do-nothing Congress since 2006...and thus our gas prices soared too), but look at the rest of the world...people starving, being told what to do by their government.....and the opponent's ideas and beliefs are similiar in some areas and scary to me. You can go anywhere in the world and there's two things that will govern the laws in which you live (whether good or bad) and those two things are religion and politics (the two things everyone "says" you can't mix). You can't get away from those two. You can turn a blind eye to it but that doesn't mean it's not there, whether it be Buddhism, Hinduism, Muslim, New-Age Movement, or Christianity.
And those that would say that some of the issues upon which I am basing my decision are moral ones....YES, THEY ARE! I don't know any decision that doesn't come down to morals and values...what's right...so yes, I'll be looking at the morals, values, and character first and foremost because it's from that character that all men/women, leaders included, make their decisions.
Regardless of who wins this election, the American people are going to have start standing up for the Constitution and our rights, period. I will be praying for whoever wins this election as well as the American people as a nation. The communists actually said that the way they could take over America was by destroying it from within and they could take it over without firing a shot....so more than anything and most importantly I hope whoever wins, the American people will just STAND UP for their rights and stand up for what IS right in every issue we face today!
"If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land." 11 Chronicles 7:14
GOD BLESS AMERICA! GO VOTE!
