Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34 Alexis DeToqueville was a Frenchman who came to America early in the 19th century to see first hand the vitality and heart of the American democracy. I quote from his classic Democracy in America , "I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers and it was not there ... in her fertile fields and boundless forests and it was not there ... in her rich mines and vast world commerce and it was not there ... in her democratic Congress and Constitution and it was not there, not til I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power."
I am guided by these principles in casting my vote on Election day 2016. I believe this is a consequential election, the most important of my lifetime. Here are the values that serve as my guiding light in casting my ballot.
1. Which candidate has the will to stall the march to a progressive Armageddon?
2. Which candidate has shown the drive to expand government, to further the legislation of immorality, expand the killing of the unborn and increase the national debt, thereby making our dollars worth less and less?
