Kyle and her husband moved to Brookfield in 1986. She became active in local politics and started blogging in 2004. Her focus is primarily on local issues but often includes state and national topics, too. Kyle looks at things from the taxpayers' perspective in a creative, yet down to earth way, addressing them from a practical point of view.
Well, today is the day. The day we go vote for president and our other government representatives*. How will you choose which one?
Will your choice be based on what the candidate promises to give and do for you? Or will the candidate's platform and character influence your choice?
President Lincoln said, "I know that the Lord is on the side of the right. But it is my constant prayer that I and this nation should be on the Lord's side."
I am just speaking to people of faith here.
The Lord cannot bless a nation that embraces a culture of death concerning the unborn. He cannot bless a nation that embraces homosexual marriage. These 2 issues are clearly against His teachings in the Bible.
You cannot pick and choose which of God's principles you will obey and which you will disregard. If you do, you are in effect creating your own god, and putting it before Him. That act violates the 1st commandment: Exodus 20:3 "You shall have no other gods before Me." We are created in His image, we don't create a god in ours.
On Sunday, our pastor challenged us to let God shape our thinking when we vote. As a Christian, our vote represents God's voice to the government."
I am choosing the party that supports a culture of life and believes marriage between a man and a woman should be protected. That party's candidates are John McCain and Sarah Palin. Is McCain perfect? Everything I could ever ask for in a candidate? No. But he does represent my Christian values. He also happens to support my American values.
...choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods [idols] which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River... But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." Joshua 24:15
I am also voting for Jim Sensenbrenner and Leah Vukmir.
