Elections right around the corner

Published 8:52 am Tuesday, October 19, 2010

In case you haven’t thought about it, Tuesday, Nov. 2, is right around the corner.

Many of us have been waiting over a year for this day. We have threatened time after time that Nov. 2, 2010, would be pay back for those in office who refused to listen to the will of the people.

Instead, they have voted the opposite of what we asked them to on many pieces of legislation.Their “don’t care” attitudes have put our country in great peril and us, as Americans, along with it.

Thank goodness it will soon be time for us to vote. It is our God-given right and duty. But if we are going to take our country back, we must not just go and push buttons in the voting booth! It’s important that we get to know the candidate we’re voting for. Let’s make sure that person not only believes in abiding by the U.S. Constitution, but is also a God-fearing, conservative individual. Get out and vote Nov. 2, but, by all means, do what’s right, “Vote the Bible.” James 4:17.
