Voting is an Act of Faith

Voting is a concrete demonstration of faith. Faith in our form of government and faith in our fellow man. It is a necessary demonstration of that faith because freedom isn't safe. Our fellows may do with their freedom that which we would rather they not do. That's the biggest danger of freedom. To vote to keep all of our freedoms intact is a vote that says "I trust my friends and neighbors to do that which is right, rather than that which is expedient for them or easy."

The two party system is killing us. Literally. It is nothing less than an easy button which the msm and the major parties have used to hijack the system. It is a lie and the most insidious of lies because it plays on the wish we all have to be winners.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to be a winner. There is something terribly wrong with allowing that wish to degrade your character. The truth is that there are over 200 presidential candidates registered with the FEC. How many of their names do you know? Have you heard of Samm Tittle? How about Gary Johnson or Phillip G. Pflughaupt? Have you done your due diligence to find the BEST candidate without regard to the one that the msm or either party declares is the only one that has a chance of winning? (Of course, if you believe them they will turn out to be right because you will vote how they tell you to, R or D, instead of voting for the best candidate.)

How faithless are we that we allow ourselves time after time after time to be deceived by this lie? This is the most concrete demonstration of our lack of faith in God, as a nation, that we could possibly make. Will people make fun of you for voting for an other than mainstream media candidate? Yes. Will they blame you for the wrong person being elected due to their own lack of faith, because you didn't join them in their comfortable lie? Yes. Are we the "Home of the Brave" or the Home of Timid"? Are we the "Land of the Free" or the "Land of the Lazy"? If we continue to use the two party system to direct our votes, then we are timid and lazy and we deserve the government we get.

I think we deserve better. Have faith that God, having given us such an exceptional nation, wants us to keep it. Do your part to keep it and restore it. The same God who told Noah to build the ark gave us this nation. We have the same choice as Noah, do the necessary work, or be destroyed along with the rest of the world.
Your choice.

"Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants." ~ Matt 18:23
