2016 U.S. Presidential Election – My Thoughts

  • This might go down in history as the most divisive Presidential election in United States history.
  • It also is the first time in my adult life I have ever seen such defense of the indefensible.  This is not specific to a side.
  • Both major candidates have serious issues and those who support them do so either with their nose pinched or ears plugged.  Is that what we have reduced ourselves to in this country? The lesser of two evils?
  • There is no place for hate in this process.  So much name calling and a lot of it is in the Christian community.   We’re to be a light, but right now the light is pretty dim.
  • Let me be clear. Voting is not an obligation, but a right.  If you are not educated on the candidates, you probably should not vote.  That might seem harsh, but this is a big deal.
  • You can always vote but leave the top of the ticket blank, or write in a candidate that aligns with your voting values.
  • If  you do perform this civil action of voting, be civil.
  • Do not tear down others because of how they’re voting, or judge every other aspect of their life. You have no clue why they vote the way they do if you’re not willing to hear them out.
  • Do  your best to not engage politically in any form of social media.  It NEVER ends well. How many people have you won over because of Facebook or Twitter.
  • Lastly, pray. We’ll all need it.
