WHO TO VOTE FOR?
Well no one can tell another person who to vote for however let me pass along some wisdom that applies to all endeavors.
Do you read the back of contracts before signing them?
Do you read the side effects of medication before taking them?
Do you read the manual of a product before using it?
If you are like most people – you don’t. The same is true, sad to say, about most American voters. Based on talking with numerous people over the years, I find that many vote for those who don’t align with what they value.
I have had several discussions with those who are against abortion, for or against government health care, or for or against tax issues, and the list does go on; but, when they vote, they don’t read the records they listen to the rhetoric. They don’t read the platforms of the party they are about to put into authority over them, they don’t know the record of the candidate they are voting for, and they don’t know how the issue they are voting yes or no for will affect their future or the future of their children.
Who should you vote for? You must decide but don’t just roll the dice, be an informed voter. Do your homework. And, if you are a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ, and a person who lives your life to bring glory to God, you should make sure that who or what you are voting for lines up with what the Bible says, God’s values, your values.
Visit the websites below and read what the parties stand for and do your research on the candidates who are running for office and see how they have voted in the past and the platforms that they stand for.
