Candidate Guideline

Two great American's said:

And so my fellow Americans, ask not what your county can do for you, but what you can do for your country.
- John F. Kennedy

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

- Martin Luther King

As we go through this election year, listen to the candidates. What are they really saying, what does it mean to us if their plans are instituted, what are they are NOT saying? We are so lulled by the rhetoric.

We've got to get back to personal responsibility for ourselves and our families and our country.

Compare what all the candidates are saying with the above quotes by great Americans. Are we hearing "ask why you can do for your country?" Or are we hearing, "this is what the government can do for you."

Are we are judging by the content of character or by skin color, gender and "sexual orientation?"

In this election, pray for God to reveal His plan for our nation and vote for the candidate He puts on your heart. But we need a guideline.

Go to wallbuilders.com to see how candidates line up with issues that matter to you.

Peace to all

Thanks for a great admonition and a great tool to use to find out more! A lot of folks are really in confusion about all of this.

We all need to bathe our votes in prayer!
