Super Tuesday

I think that it’s an appropriate day to talk “Politics”. I know that this isn’t an easy topic to talk about. Some people just don’t like to talk about their political views; to them it’s a private matter. There are some people that are just so set in their ways, their either voting straight Republican or straight Democrat without even knowing who and what they are voting for. Or there are the people that want nothing to do with politics so they just don’t vote. They think this country is domed anyway and their vote doesn’t do anything for the cause. So if you relate to any of the above mentioned or if the word politics just makes your skin craw, I am giving you permission to just stop reading now.

As a Christian I have always been a faithful republican. I believe my moral issues always outweigh my liberal issues. I believe that God blesses you by the way you vote and that it’s our responsibility as Christian to make sure that the people leading our country are Godly men and women. Even though there are those republicans that make this party look bad such as Senator Larry Craig. All we can do is pray for them and hope God can move in their lives. But this year, I have also dipped my feet into democratic water, and see that there are good plans and good things that some candidates can do for this country. I might not agree with everything that candidate purposes, but in any party you’re never going to agree on everything one candidate says.

This is only the primaries, but everything we are doing now will ultimately end up to who becomes our president. I feel like it vital to know who each candidate is and what they represent. I’m still learning everyday, but I do try to get as much information as I possibly can. I watch CNN almost every night, and always try to read up on each of the candidates regardless of them being a Republican or Democrat. There is only one Man from the republican side that I can vote for, and after todays win in West Virginia I can only pray that he brings in more votes to win the republican nominee. But if he doesn’t win the nominee, that’s where my vote could possibly, go to a democrat. But it is only February.

My hope for this nation would be that Mike Huckabee becomes the republican nominee. Not only is he a man of God, but he’s real and knows the issues of today and has good ideas to fix this nation. On his website, he talks about Faith and Politics saying
“My faith is my life - it defines me. My faith doesn't
influence my decisions, it drives them. For example, when it comes to the
environment, I believe in being a good steward of the earth. I don't separate my
faith from my personal and professional lives.”
No where on Romney’s or McCain’s website do they get that raw and vulnerable to the American people. But does he have a chance? With McCain ahead in the polls and Romney close on his heels, does he even have a chance to be the next president?

I think I’m going to end there tonight. As Super Tuesday comes to a close I will thank God for victory in West Virginia and pray that more are to come. God is in control of this election!

I wanted Mike Huckabee as well. Hard subject to post on, you did it wondefully.
