"A wise man's heart inclines him to the right
but a fool's heart to the left."
~ Ecclesiastes 10:2 ~

understanding and experienced men
and I will appoint them as your heads."
~ Deuteronomy 1:13 ~
"The difference between a democracy and a dictatorship is that in a democracy you vote first and take orders later; in a dictatorship, you don't have to waste time voting."
~ Charles Burkowski ~
"Democracy must be something more than two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner." ~ James Bovard ~
"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
~ H. L. Mencken ~
"Every election is determined by the people who show up." ~ Larry Sabato ~
"Perhaps the fact that we have seen millions voting themselves into complete dependence upon a tyrant has made our generation understand that to choose one's government is not necessarily to secure freedom." ~ Friedrich August von Hayek ~
"Voting is a civil sacrament." ~ Theodore Hesburgh ~
"The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter."
~ Winston Churchill ~
"in my lifetime, we've gone from Eisenhower to George W. Bush. We've gone from J. F. Kennedy to Al Gore. If this is evolution, I believe that in twelve years we'll be voting for plants." ~ Lewis Black ~
"Voting is a right that has been given to every American;
however, as Christ followers, our
votes should reflect our God."
~ Monica Johnson ~"Elections belong to the people. It's their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters."
~ Abraham Lincoln ~
"Remember something, if you will, about voting: voting is not a horse race, you're not going there thinking "Gee, I gotta pick the winner so I can brag to my friends 'Oh, I picked so-and-so and he or she won." Voting is voting your heart and voting your conscience and when you've done that, don't ever, EVER let a Democrat or Republican tell you that you've wasted your vote because the fact is, if you DON'T vote your heart and conscience then you HAVE wasted your vote." ~ Jesse Ventura ~
PLEASE vote Tuesday; it's our privilege, right and responsibility. PLEASE put aside personal opinion and views and vote as you believe God would have you vote. Our votes will have lasting, eternal consequences; on judgement day, each of us will stand before God and He's gong to ask, "WHY?" Be prepared to answer based upon your reading of Scripture and your prayers before the Lord God Almighty.
"Finally, brothers, pray for us,
that the word of the Lord may speed ahead and be honored,
as happened among you,
and that we may be delivered from wicked and evil men,
for not all have faith."
If you'd like a name added to the prayer list, please let me know each week.
