The girls have been working hard out on the campaign trail. Up at dawn and falling into bed between 10 and 11 every night. They are having a lot of fun with it, but it is work and I am not sure they expected it to be so much work.
I would like to encourage all you Christians to take some time tomorrow to pray, one for your decision on who to vote for, it is our responsibility as Christians to vote biblically, and two pray for our country. I don't tihnk anyone disagrees that things have gotten a little messy here and we all would like to see it fixed. There is no quick fix, this problem didn't happen overnight, even in the last eight years, or even in the last decade, it was something that happened slowly and it is something that will have to be fixed slowly. There is no immediate "change" whatever candidate we pick.
There are a few issues that are close to my heart this, and every election.
Life: This is the most crucial issue to me. If a candidate does not support life, they do not have my vote, and Barack Obama is not only pro-choice, he is pro-abortion. I do not believe that the life of a child should be a choice! I encourage you to click on that link and read that article. It is very informative.
Family: Family is very important to me. The breakdown of family values and morals has left our children growing up in a generation devoid of morals, where relativism is a gauge to tell them what is right and wrong and there are no absolutes. Soon it will be commonplace for children to read books about children and their two mommies, or their two daddies. While I do not feel it is my place to judge homosexuality and I believe, as Christians, we are to love everyone, I do believe that the Bible is very clear about homesexual sin. There is a video here that explains it very well.
There are many other reasons why I am voting for McCain/ Palin tomorrow. I believe that Obama's redistribution plans are very much the beginning of socialism, which is defined as follows:
Socialism An "economic, social and political doctrine which expresses the struggle for the equal distribution of wealth by eliminating private property and the exploitative ruling class. In practice, such a distribution of wealth is achieved by social ownership of the means of production, exchange and diffusion
I also have a very long article I wrote about socialistc medicine which i may post here soon.
