Principles for Voting

vote-1190029_1280

We are now in the final weeks leading up to the 2016 Presidential election, and as citizens of the United States we have been blessed with the great privilege – as well as responsibility – of being able to choose who would lead our nation.  This civic duty should not be taken lightly; since our country’s founding, many have fought and died to protect this freedom for us.  Moreover, at such a critical time in America, the results of this election will either prosper her and the generations yet to come, or quite possibly deliver the death sentence to the greatest country on earth.  Therefore, we must choose wisely.  Set aside some time to read through this voter’s guide, How To Vote From The Historic Judeo-Christian Perspective (also available here in a printable PDF format).

 

“This is the issue of this election: Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capitol can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves…
Our natural, unalienable rights are now considered to be a dispensation of government, and freedom has never been so fragile, so close to slipping from our grasp as it is at this moment…
You and I have a rendezvous with destiny.  We’ll preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we’ll sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”

– Ronald Reagan,
selections from his speech “A Time For Choosing”
