What I’m voting for…

In just two months, it will be over.  The U.S. presidential election, I mean. Not the end of the world.  But maybe the end of our nation, as we have known it.  No I will not be voting for Biden…. I am not voting for a man.  I am not rallying for a personality.  I am not pushing a person.  At this point, I am voting for one thing and one thing only.  I am voting for the principles for which this country has stood since its founding.  I am voting for Constitutional government.  I am voting for a strong and viable military.  I am voting for a vibrant economy.  I am voting for the right to keep and bear arms.  I am voting for the freedom to worship.  I am voting for a national recognition of the founding of our nation on Biblical principles.  I am voting for the ability for anyone to rise above their circumstances and become successful.  

I am voting for my children and grandchildren to be able to choose their own path in life, including how and where their children are educated.  I am voting for our borders to be open to everyone who enters under our law and closed to everyone who would circumvent or ignore the law. 

I am voting for the Electoral College to remain in place, so that a few heavily populated liberal centers do not control the elections. I am voting for a Supreme Court that interprets the Constitution rather than rewrites it.  I am voting to teach history, with all of its warts, not erase it or revise it.  I am voting for the sanctity of life from conception to birth and after.

Now, there are some things I am voting against. I am voting against open borders.  I am voting against a rampant welfare system that enslaves it’s recipients.  I am voting against socialism, in all of its forms, including health care, redistribution, reparations, economics, governmental control, pedophilia, and criminal releases, etc.  I would rather pay for prison reform then see the criminals released to repeatedly commit the same crimes! 

So, although I don’t give blanket approval to everything our President has done or said in the past, I do support him as our president!  I am not voting against Joe Biden, but I am voting against everything that the party backing him and propping him up stands for.  It is not the Democratic Party of the past.  

Two months is all we have.
