Our country was also designed so that ALL OF US - every common everyday citizen of our country (that is of age) could have a say in how our country is run. We are to be the ones in leadership and we are the ones that those elected to leadership represent.
Unfortunately our country has been majorly straying from it's foundation of Christian principles. I also find that many people don't care to be involved in the process of electing leaders and holding them accountable. I believe this needs to change!!
A couple of weeks ago I held an educational event for anybody who wished to come (but specifically targeted at Homeschool families) to help people to understand how our election process works and how we can truly make a difference. It was a really fun day and I felt very blessed with the turn-out and the interest that people showed. I believe that people do want to do what they can to help return America to it's founding principles but many didn't know how.
Is that possibly true for you as well?
Today in 13 states (Minnesota being one of them) we are holding either caucuses or primaries to choose who will be the nominee for each party. This is a very simple way to get involved. It is also super important. We candidates who are very different from one another. Their are some who I think would be truly God fearing, would honor the constitution and try to live their lives according to what they read in the Bible. There are others that don't have any moral compass to guide their lives and so could make decisions that would take our country even farther away from God.
I encourage you. I beg you. Please go out and vote for someone who stands by God's word and the Constitution!
Some of you need to go today, some of you will be next week or even later and a few of you live in states that have already had their chance. If you still have a chance- please go! Even if you don't know how a caucus or primary works just go - their will be volunteers there (I know I am heading off to volunteer in just a few minutes) that will help guide you through it. It really isn't that hard.
