Tomorrow we vote for President and Vice President of the USA. It is a privilege and duty to vote, one not taken lightly. However, this election is about more than the next four years; it’s about the next three or four decades. The President we elect now will determine, in large measure, the sitting justices of the Supreme Court for, possibly, the next four decades! Do not think your vote does not matter; it matters tremendously…if not here then, when each of us, on Judgement Day, stand before God and account for every word, thought, deed, vote.
Your vote matters to God, vote wisely, knowing He holds you accountable.

Ponder this ~ to vote party, and not person, is to vote foolishly, not wisely. ~
