How many people really vote for the person they think is the best all around and most qualified candidate for President of these United States apart from race, color or creed? It might surprise you to learn how few there are. |
No one would argue that some dyed in the wool democrats and republicans will always vote their party’s ticket. Loyalty to a party can be both a plus and a minus depending on who the candidate is. Other reasons we vote could be considered outright discriminatory if they occurred in a different setting. Let’s see!
Ever since Barack Obama won the Iowa caucuses he has courted the black vote more aggressively than at any other time in his campaign. His poll numbers are swelling exponentially among blacks and he is expected to garner as much as four fifths of the black vote across the board throughout the primary.
Only one day after upsetting Obama in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton coddled the black voters in a Baptist church in the heart of Harlem New York. Not long after her visit to Harlem Obama trumped her efforts to win the black vote by speaking at Ebenezer Church in Atlanta Georgia where Martin Luther King once pastored. But for all the efforts neither Hillary nor any other white candidate can expect to achieve much among the black voters above or below the Mason Dixon line.
The women’s vote is obviously prejudiced toward Hillary Clinton in just about every state in the union. She was able to pull 52 per cent of the women’s vote in New Hampshire and is expected to do that well or better in almost every other state in the nation.
Along come the evangelicals and provide former pastor Mike Huckabee with an upset in Iowa and a near win in South Carolina. The Palmetto State is said to have the greatest number of protestant Christian voters in the nation how could we expect any less?
In fact it is not unreasonable to think that some actors may have voted for Ronald Reagan just because he was a fellow actor. Some musicians may have voted for Bill Clinton because he plays a hot saxophone. All this may seem innocuous and quite harmless but in fact it illustrates the fact that Americans are bent on getting what they want even if it may not always be what they really need.
If we used these factors to decide who would get loans, housing or preference in employment it would be labeled discrimination and open to the scrutiny of the law. The only law in effect here is the natural law of birds of a feather always flocking together. Nothing especially dreadful about that except that it is sinking to the lowest common denominator anyone can use to make the important decision of who will be the next President of the United States.
When all the “birds of a feather” voters are eliminated that leaves the voters whose numbers remains unspecified and unknown except to them. The only question left is; can this unknown number of people discern and prioritize the issues and reflect that in their vote?
In this election the new kid on the block is the “sexual preference” vote. Far more subjective, the question of same sex marriage and gay rights has nothing to do with anyone’s race color or creed. It is none of the above but it has influenced every candidate to either stand in direct opposition to it or pursue the voters in that highly controversial social sphere.
The issues are as always the economy, immigration, abortion, same sex marriages, terrorism, Iraq, health care, taxes, the environment and foreign affairs.
The morality or more accurately, the deepening immorality of the nation is not considered as belonging with the other issues that draw most of the attention. The Biblical view stands in direct opposition to this deduction.
The Biblical view is that all of the other issues hang on the overall morality of a nation. God has never been known to judge a nation that was suffering a poor economy, immigration problems, health care problems or high taxes. He has only intervened when a nation has fallen below the morality mark so low that he had no choice but to cause either the chastisement or end to that nation.
With over 3000 abortions a day being performed in America by the end of the election year 1,095,000 babies will have met the bottom of buckets in abortion clinics around the nation.
Those one million plus silent voices would undoubtedly not vote for any candidate that supported the robbing of their right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” Their vote will not be counted. For them there is no doubt what the most important issue is, but alas, it will be too late for them; their votes will never be registered in this election or any other.
So which are the most important issues? You can decide that for yourself but while you’re doing that; remember this.
The Lord is known by the judgment which he executeth: the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands. The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. (Ps 9: 16, 17)
Whether you are religious or not it doesn’t take a great mind to see that voting for anything other than what a man or women stands for is reckless patronizing and should never be misconstrued for responsible patriotism. Its not about race, color or creed; it is about America!
