Shameful . . .

October 24, 2012

So, did you vote last week?  Probably not, since we were told that less than half those who were eligible to vote actually cast a ballot.  And if you fall in that category it is shameful and inexcusable.  People say “But Denn you don’t understand,  I didn’t know the issues or candidates.”  Well, whose fault is that?  Others say “I just didn’t have the time.”  Yet you had time for Facebook and television.  Still other’s maintain that it doesn’t make a difference. Well it most certainly does, just watch the news and see what happens when people can’t vote.  And in this election it was so easy to cast a ballot.  If you didn’t have a car, a candidate would have driven you, if you didn’t want to leave the house you could have voted online, if you didn’t have the interweb thingy, you could have voted by phone.  Shameful and inexcusable. 
But that is just my opinion.  The Bible never told us that we had to vote for those in power, but it did tell us to pray for those in power, regardless of whether you voted for them or not.  And if we don’t do that, not only is it shameful and inexcusable, it is disobedient.  Just saying.  Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
