I will not stay home
There’s lots of talk around this year by people fearing that the Foley scandal will keep Evangelicals home on voting day.
I can’t speak for others, but as far as I’m concerned, I don’t need an excuse to go to vote. Voting to select my own government officials is my right, not as an American, but as a human. All people have the right to select their own government. The opportunity to do so is what is not even for all people, and for me to have the opportunity to vote but not exercise it would be to deny my birthright.
Anyone who has read Genesis knows there is peril in doing that. And anyone who has read this blog knows there is peril in voting for Democrats.
