If you’re reading this post beyond the subject, you must be a little bit crazy. Or you don’t read blog titles.
We’re a week out from a historic election. Aren’t all elections historic? I mean, if some kid somewhere in the future is going to be forced to memorize the boring details of an event, it’s historic, right?
To be honest, I’ve hardly followed the elections this time around. I spent a day studying candidate options before the primary but haven’t really touched politics since. While I watched one debate (the first), I got caught up in my reading that night and didn’t catch much that stood out to me. I still will spend several hours weighing out my options this election. A quick count showed there to be 20 decisions to make about my ballot (not counting those that are running unopposed).
From reading Facebook statuses and tweets for months this is what I have to say:
1. The world will not end if ________ wins.
2. The world will not be saved if ________ wins.
3. Everyone, public figure or not, deserves to be talked about graciously.
4. I find it disgusting when Christians put politics over their faith.
5. I hate that people equate Republicanism with evangelical Christianity, but given point #3, I understand.
And that’s about all I have to say here.
