"Your American Duty"

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” --I Timothy 2:1-2

“The penalty that good men pay for not being interested in politics is to be governed by men worse than themselves.” --Plato

Many complain about the direction of the country and the poor quality of their city roads, etc.  But how many people are really engaged in selecting who runs the show?  Ask someone who the candidates for office in this election are and you will be surprised at the answers.  In fact, are you able to answer that question?  Who are the candidates in this election cycle that you are responsible for choosing?  Maybe we ought to complain less and read more!

Let me make some serious suggestions to you:

1.   Register to vote.

2.  Read up on the candidates/initiatives on the ballot.

3.  Educate yourself in American history.

4.  Go vote your conscience!

5.  Pray daily for government officials.

6.  Hold elected officials accountable for their actions.

If you will not engage in the politics of our city, county, state, and country, someone else is voting for you.  If you don’t vote, you don't get to have a voice.  If you didn't help choose the leaders, you don't get to complain about them.  It has been said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing.”
