Focus

In case you are confused about what to do after you waltz into the voting booth for the next election.....the friendly folks at Focus On The Family have issued some slick advice:

Does the candidate have a Christian world-view? Is he pro-life? A clue is whether he knows the embryonic stem-cell debate and opposes the process. Does she firmly support God’s definition of marriage, and does she oppose civil unions that give marriage benefits to same-sex couples? Does he believe that parents, rather than the state, have ultimate say over what a child learns in school? Is she hostile toward or silent on matters of faith? A candidate’s positions on all these issues are important indicators.

Political Parties matter. You like the platform and values of a local candidate who’s running with the party you typically vote against. Should you cross party lines and vote for him? Don’t forget that whichever party is in the majority has control over which bills eventually reach the floor. You’re voting for more than individual candidates; you’re voting for which party sets the agenda.

I'm going to start my own Tea Party movement. I want my country back. I want my country to go back to the good old days when we voted for politicians because of where they stood on issues like defense, international relations, the economy, etc. I'm sick of the issues being whom can legally screw whom, abortion, marriage, etc. Get the hell out of my morals you tea-bagging jackasses.

Does the candidate have a Christian worldview? Sure, let's fill the congress with good Christian candidates like Christine O'donnell Sharron Angle and Rand Paul. Who cares if they're freaking nuts?
