I had a rather deep discussion with my wife last night about religion and politics. She grew up in the California "liberal" education system where they waste precious teaching time on topics such as pollution and saving the whales. I grew up in Wyoming where we learned how to read and develop our math skills. Needless to say, she can be a tough nut to crack when trying to break through the years of liberal idiocracy engrained in her brain since childhood. I was explaining to her that most Christians are registered Republicans because of their religious beliefs, anti-abortion, strong family values etc. She agreed, but made the argument that people should have the agency to do as they please, legally of course, without the Christian right electing officials to dictate others rights. I see her point, however I believe we do have our own free agency, and that we should use our agency to elect those officials that we, as Christians, believe God would approve of. As we went through the Republican agenda vs. the democrat agenda, it was clear to both of us that if God were to vote, he would clearly vote Republican. Too add to this point, we found the the most evil of people we could think of, Bin Laden etc. would most definately vote as a democrat. It was quite the eye opening evening. Pslams 118:6 God is on my side, I shall fear no man. When voting this November, who would you rather vote along with, God or men like Bin Laden. I think deep down people of both parties know the answer.
As a lifetime Republican and economic conservative I have to admit I was disappointed in John McCain as the Republican Nominee. I was pulling for Mitt Romney, who I felt most closely represented my political agenda. However, I am a firm beliver in "Party Trumps Person" politics. I will always vote republican no matter who is running. In the past month I have come to see John McCain as a man that I truly belive in. I believe he loves his country and will always put "country first". Listening to his RNC acceptance speech gave me the chills. There really is no comparison between McCain and Obama...Hero vs. Zero
Although I didn't know much about Governor Sarah Palin before she became the Republican Party Vice Presidential nominee, I am pleased to say that after some research I love this woman, and I am not alone. Her nomination has re-electrified the republican party and has put fear into the dark liberal hearts of the Obama campaign. Click on her picture to get a Sarah-Cuda bumper sticker, these are great.
