How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad. This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of […]

I Began My Voting Life as a Republican

Are you a Democrat? An Independent? A Republican? Have you ever changed your party affiliation? More often than not, people become affiliated with a political party based on their heritage (in my experience). It’s a family tradition. Even suggesting that someone vote differently than their parents can start an argument. (Now I was born and […]

Biblical Principles for Voting

For those searching the Bible for Biblical principles on voting in this presidential election… The Bible says:  Abortion or inflicted miscarriage is not considered murder.  Aliens deserve the same laws as everyone else – illegal or not.  We should be good stewards of the planet – so go green!   We are most Godlike when […]

One War is One Too Many

I don’t know who this young man is or where he is from, but when I look at this photo I just want to hug him and take him to his home – just snatch him right out of there. Opinions on war have never been more important than they are right now – during […]

Character in a Presidential Candidate

I’m not so proud of many things I did as a young person, but I can honestly say that I never intentionally hurt anyone, physically or otherwise. Mitt Romney’s “hijinks” (as he calls them) as a senior in his “prep” high school which involved holding a gay boy down and cutting his hair, seem to […]

Supporting Gay Marriage Political Ploy

Surely everyone has heard the news by now… Political Ploy? Doesn’t make sense! President Obama has become the first president in history to support same-sex marriage. Many are saying that supporting gay marriage is nothing more than a political ploy, but if that were the case, it is certainly one with a huge risk. While […]

Demand action on healthcare

Do you have health insurance? Many do not. It is my opinion that a citizen of America should be able to go to a doctor and receive medical care when they are ill. I am not as concerned about any other issue facing us today, as I am about the suffering of our sick and […]

Vote out incumbents

Let’s have a revolution in America. Not one with guns or even protest marches. Let’s voice our opinion on Election Day. Let’s vote out ALL incumbents. Yep, let’s oust them from their comfy chairs in the congress and the senate. Let’s vote for newbies who will at least be in touch with mainstream Americans. Let’s […]

Jesus for President

I just read a pastor’s blog post on the “Jesus for President” authors who are now on tour. No, they are not advocating a sign-in vote for Jesus. This goes much deeper than that… “This whole project is about the political imagination of what it means to follow after Jesus,” Claiborne said. “The language of […]

Who do you hate?

Who do YOU hate? McCain or Obama or both? Newsflash! You don’t have to hate one candidate just because you “love” another candidate. We’re not in grammar school any more. Please, if you do hate one of them, I do NOT really want to know. I’m so frustrated from reading posts by bloggers, who rather […]

Dobson attacks Obama

I found out the real reason James Dobson attacked Obama’s speech… and I quote from that speech by Obama… Even if we did have only Christians in our midst, if we expelled every non-Christian from the United States of America, whose Christianity would we teach in the schools? Would it be James Dobson’s or Al […]

James Dobson

How long will Christians continue to listen to utter nonsense voiced by self-professed leaders such as James Dobson? Apparently, and HOPEFULLY, not much longer. This week, James Dobson attacked a speech made by Obama in 2006. Dobson claimed that Obama “deliberately” distorted the Bible “to fit his own worldview — his own confused theology.” HOGWASH! […]

McCain’s Temper

So tired of reading about the many exaggerated accounts of McCain’s temper. We all know he has a temper, but so far, I haven’t seen him angry about anything that wouldn’t make me angry also. Latest media frenzy – McCain loses cool with NY Times reporter who questions him about Kerry asking him to consider […]
