Compare Candidates’ morals to God’s morals

“As we look at all the candidates who are asking for our vote in 2008, we must not only be aware of their past voting record if they have previously held an elected office, as important as that is, but we must be sure we know what they believe. A favorite line from liberals and secularists is, “Well, it really doesn’t matter what they believe or what they do in their private life.” You will recall that that was the mantra we heard following Bill Clinton’s extra curricular activities.

 

…people of faith should compare the candidate’s voting records and their personal beliefs to the core Biblical beliefs that most all people of faith embrace.

 

Noah Webster, the father of our public education system, said, ‘If the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted.’” ~ Gary Randall, President of Faith & Freedom Network

 

Couldn’t have said it better myself. : )  I always strive to keep God in the center of my presidential race discussions, because that’s what really matters.

 

Old news: Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee have officially dropped out of the race.  Ron Paul is still in the race with 21 delegates nationwide and no states.  Do you think McCain would consider Huckabee for a Vice…?  Here are some Vice possibilities.  A great resource on the presidential race is http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/.

  1. Private life does matter!

    One’s values does not magically change as soon as you step into the White House. What you value today is going to be what you value tomorrow and the best way to figure out what someone’s values is to see what they did in the past — ie private life. Also, it has been painfully clear how when a leader’s private life fails, his/her social life also fails.

    About Huckabee being vice president . . . I used to think that this would be a great opportunity for Huckabee to get some experience under his belt — to help overcome the accusations that he was weak on foreign policy and all. But after I gave it some thought and researched a bit on McCain, I now believe that teaming up with McCain will mar Huckabee’s record more than help him. McCain, while stronger on foreign policy, holds extremely liberal positions and since affiliating with McCain means affiliating with his beliefs, I am against Huckabee for vice president. Besides, Huckabee himself says that he was running for president, not vice president, and is therefore not open to that option.

  2. Do not forget to think beyond this election.

    For the Christian, the presidential race has already been lost. None of the potential candidates are compatible with Christian ethics. McCain has repeatedly demonstrated a pronounced resentment of the Christian right, even seeking to silence them through the McCain/Feingold Campaign Finance Reform bill, even if it meant violating the Constitution. He has also stated that he will appoint many democrats into his cabinet that will likely have anti-Christian worldviews. The danger of McCain is that we will be blamed for everything he does, even if it is the antithesis of what we believe.
    Obama is the worst of all the nominees. I will vote for almost anyone to keep him from office, even McCain.
    Clinton is regrettably the choice that I might favor given this race. While she will likely do many of the same things McCain will, she has bad blood between many of her fellow democrats that will hinder their agenda. Also, any failings will not be laid at our feet, since democrats will be in the White House. This may set us up for a greater win in 2012 with a candidate that we can truly support.
