Get out and VOTE


Those of you who know me know that I would NEVER try to make anyone's mind up for them. I would especially NEVER tell anyone who to vote for. It's just not me. YEAH RIGHT!! Today is election day people. If you haven't voted please exercise this great freedom that we have to cast a secret ballot without fear of intimidation or oppression. If you still haven't made up your mind, I'll be by my phone all day taking calls with wonderful advice on who I believe is the best candidate for the job :) But regardless of who you are leaning towards (hopefully the right), please use this freedom we have been given wisely. I do say all of this partly joking but I would like to leave you with a few thoughts that our pastor shared with us on Sunday.
Who wins on Tuesday will not change some of the most important things. It will not change that the Bible is true. It will not change that God is Sovereign. It will not change that we are covered by Jesus' blood. It will not change the fact that if we believe in Jesus' name and repent from our sins that we will have eternal life. PRAISE THE LORD!!! But, as Christians, we do have a huge responsibility and that is to pray for whomever God allows to be our leader and that we must do faithfully.

I agree 100%. Being in Russia I would have to cast an absent vote. This is possible but very difficult. I assumed that since NC always voted Republican I didn't have worry about it. So I didn't vote. Now NC is one of the battleground states where my vote could of made a difference. Now I have to live with this regret and shame. So go vote. It WILL count!

good post! Isn't it wonderful to know that no matter what the TRUTH is still the TRUTH,and the LIGHT is all illuminating, so let's light up the world no matter who is our President, because our faith is not determined by who is president but who washes us with the blood of Calvary!

My seamonkeys have decided not to vote. It's a little to rainy for them to be getting out.

That's probably a good thing. I mean, they look to you to provide for all their needs. That makes them democrats. They need to stay home...

I think that sea monkeys may be apolitical

I didn't know that the sea monkeys were still alive! VJD

Is that the candidate of your choice? The one with the hat on? He appears to be "out standing in his field." I would vote for him.

The seamonkeys could just use the name and address of someone else to vote since no one is actually checking photo I.D. at the polling stations.

Yes anonymous! Noah for Pres. As long as he gets about 10 hrs of sleep a night he's good. If not... watch out.
