I avoid politics on my blog because frankly… I don’t have time to argue and I feel that it is a dividing point. I’m not in to division. I have lots of great Christian friends and I want to build them up and grow in the Lord with them. I have a few liberal friends, too – and I really don’t want to fight about our differences.
I have been really glad to see that a few of my favorite bloggers are on the same page with me. Here is a post I ran in to just last night by Amy of Amy’s Humble Musings that made me chuckle. BE SURE to go to the link and see the Ron Paul video she mentions!!!
From Spunky’s article (a VERY short summary):
Thanks David Brody, for helping us all see that a Huckabee presidency will NOT be good choice for conservative Christian homeschoolers or any conservative who believes in a limited government where there is no federal role education policy. That’s what Ronald Reagan believed when I voted for him in the ’80’s and what I still believe today. ~ Spunky Homeschool
The reason why I am not afraid to “throw my vote away” as some have said I would be doing is because… I think the future of our nation is in danger. That’s the only way to say it and I’m sorry if it depresses you. That is why my vote is more precious now than ever – and I will not be afraid to cast it for the person that it should go to (especially because I am AFRAID that it will cause another person to win that I don’t want in office).
Fear is not of God.
Quotes from my comment on Dana’s post:
This past three years have really been the death of my link to the Republican Party… since I now don’t believe the Republican Party stands for the same type of conservatism that I do. The “ghost cross” and the fluffy religious sound bites don’t work on me any more. I am way beyond falling for the first person who mentions Jesus. The Bible says that many will say “Lord, Lord!” and He will tell them to get away because He doesn’t know them… Even the daemons believe and shudder. So now that I am a voter without a party, I can only vote for who best preserves the nation that was founded upon Biblical principles – and Ron Paul seems to be the Constitutional choice. At this point, I feel that it doesn’t matter if he is not able to pull off the victory… Why?
Because: The Lord gives all leaders their power and sets us all in our times and places. I believe in Acts 17:26 and Romans 13:1.
Acts 17:26 ~ “From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live.”
Romans 13:1 ~ “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”
He is still in control. No matter what I do or who I vote for.
It has taken me a while to do the research (and I’m so thankful for people like Spunky and Dana who have shared so much about the candidates). I am confident that I have chosen the CONSERVATIVE and CONSTITUTIONAL choice for the United States of America (not the red state-blue state divided nation that is going down the toilet). As far as I’m concerned, Ron Paul is the only valid candidate for 2008.
I’m on my way out to make sure I’m registered next week. In the process, I think I’ll do some research and see if I can find a campaign office for Ron. I might just go meet the man myself if I get a wild hair. Ron Paul really likes homeschoolers!
You want to see blue staters and red staters get along? Talk TAXES. Can you even IMAGINE a world without the IRS?
YOU GET ON WITH YOUR BAD SELF DR.PAUL!
