Pressed for time, I only have a few minutes before I see the dentist, etc. The blog message that I am posting today, is the answer to a long time question I've had !! I concur with all this gentleman has said, but now I have concluded that it is right and correct duty, that we ought to get more involved with fighting for [at least] our liberties and freedoms [still left] in this land, the USA. The term, "COLLECTIVE" means that we all bear SOME civil, and national responsibility, IMHO. That means, doing the research and then VOTING !! In my humble opinion, applying a simple 'litmus test' to a candidate is the first thing I do. Make very sure that he / she is born in the USA, and Christian !!! Then match up his record and agenda with the basics of the Bible. Does he promote the Gay agenda, Constitution, abortion, Military and Veterans, old folks, Social Security, etc. But I know that people can say one thing, and when in office, do just the opposite. Also, Unfortunately, the terms, Democrat and Republican, don't mean much these days --- both are loaded with lying crooks. And then, I'd prefer that they did some Military service, and also held a position of over sight and accomplished many good things prior, etc.
On the other hand, I KNOW that Bible prophecy MUST come true, so we have to temper all of the other things with that knowledge. I hope that I don't sound like a broken record...lol, and then that in itself is a poor term to use now days, as we don't have "music records" anymore. You can tell that I'm "Old School."
The weather is kind of cold and bleak U.P. here today, with perhaps a threat of some snow.... AGAIN ! I will be glad when our duties are done today, because I dislike going to the dentist.
Have a great day.
