Although I didn’t always listen, at an early age I was taught to say “Please” when asking for something. Well, I’m asking, actually begging you to consider what I say. As we approach the election, some say the most important one in our history, I’m asking you to PLEASE—–
— forget about the color of skin (mine, yours, and the candidates). The color of a person’s skin should have nothing to do with how we cast our ballot.
— look at the present situation. We are in great need of help. We need a leader who can get us back on track.
— ask, “Are we better off than we were four years ago?”. Please be honest. How could anyone really believe that we are? I’m not talking about you being better off as a result of welfare. I’m talking about the condition of our nation.
— don’t believe all the promises–we’ve heard them before. If we were lied too once why would we trust that person again?
— stop looking for the perfect candidate– there aren’t any. So instead of rejecting both because of their flaws, it is better to vote for the one that is best. Not voting isn’t the solution.
— consider the facts, rather than the rhetoric and the bias views of the news media. The internet is a powerful tool if commonsense is employed. The facts and figures are available for all to see. Looking at them will reveal that our nation is in serious trouble and on the wrong path.
— consult our founding documents; the Declaration of Independence, the U. S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. Have you ever read them? Any candidate who does not honor and up-hold them is not qualified for the position.
— look at the candidates record. What has he done? What real life experience does he bring to the table? What are his accomplishments? Where is the evidence that he can lead us out of this mess?
— think about the big picture. We are headed into socialism at break-neck speed. Do you really believe have any idea where that ultimately leads? Can you point top any nation where it has worked? By “worked” I mean created a better place for its citizens than the prosperity we’ve enjoyed here in America. If the greatness of America can be traced to one system, namely capitalism, why would we turn to another–especially one that has a track record of failure everywhere? Would that make sense? As voters we are deciding the destiny of our nation, and the future of our families. We had better think about where we’re taking our country. I hope you are more concerned about the welfare of our country and children than you are about your welfare check.
— realize that you can’t undo the harm that is done by making a wrong choice. After certain policies are put in place it can take decades, if not longer, to change things. There won’t be a quick-fix if we put the wrong man in the White House.
— pray! Regardless of our best efforts, we haven’t done our best until we pray. This matter is far too important for us to not seek God’s will and help. If we’re going to get it right we have to get right, and that means being right with God. Prayer can make a difference–“–The effectual fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth much”(James 5:16)
— send this to everyone you know. Your effort just might be the spark that is needed to ignite a passion for people to participate in the election process. Think about it!
