This is not a political post. You can call it a rant or whatever you please, but I like to think I’m giving good advice.
Let me start by saying I don’t care or need to know who you vote for. It should be a decision based on your beliefs and morals. I have my opinions but I’m not trying to push them on you. I also won’t tell you who I vote for on a normal basis. Today, it’s just relevant to my post.
Today we early voted for the Congress NC Representative.
I have a really hard time keeping my mouth shut with people who complain about who wins an election and they didn’t even vote themselves. You want change? You want things to go your way? Get out and vote!
You say-” well the last time I voted, my candidate didn’t win so I find it pointless to do it again.” What if this year you were that one vote that breaks the tie? What if you realized your vote really does matter?
If you vote, you have every right to complain; however, I suggest praying about it instead.
I don’t do politics. I watch. I pay attention. I agree. I disagree. I choose the candidate(s) that best fit my morals and beliefs. I do my part. I vote. I don’t debate. I don’t explain my reasoning for each vote.
I vote to protect my rights. I vote for my kids and future grandkids. I vote for my beliefs. I vote for my faith. I vote for my freedom. I vote for my choice. I vote for my values. I vote for what I believe to be the best for our great nation!
The Bible tells us to choose wise men that are well seasoned and He will appoint them to be our rulers. “Choose wise and discerning and experienced men from your tribes and I will appoint them as your heads.” -Deuteronomy 1:13
If I could give you one piece of political advice it’s this- pay attention, process, choose who represents your values, and then VOTE!!
My husbands sweet grandmother is 80 years old. She’s never voted before. David is very patriotic and very committed to our wonderful country (as we all should be). My understanding is that he convinced her the importance of voting to protect our beliefs and values and she decided she finally wanted her voice to be heard. He was so proud to have helped her vote for the very first time today and I’m certain she will begin voting regularly now!
It’s so important people! Don’t complain if you haven’t done your part!!
VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!!
P.S.- we took some future voters as well and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to get some books while we were at the library!!
