Cast my vote

Vote! Don’t know? Wow! Maybe a majority feel this way and will not vote. Wrong!

We must all have wisdom and courage this year when casting a vote for a presidential candidate. Just use your moral principles and vote your conscience. Abortion, same sex marriage, supreme court judges, etc., or any political organization trying to change your church to complete their political agenda or advance their political cause, are some issues to think about when voting, especially in this presidential election.

Research, think, and yes, pray for wisdom because what we are facing this presidential election could only happen in our great nation — the United States of America. We the people of the United States of America, a great nation, a strong nation, we must stand together. We vote to keep these truths to be self-evident, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by the Creator with certain unalienable Rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

If alleged media information is negative or false then doesn’t this reflect back to both presidential candidates? It is our right and duty to provide new guards for our future and grandchildren’s future.

What happens if neither candidate receives 270 electoral votes? I think the decision lies with the House of Representatives and not the majority of popular votes.

Do we have a civic duty to vote? Moral obligation to vote? Yes! It is my civic and moral duty and obligation to vote this presidential election knowing both candidates are flawed. I am blessed to have these privileges and to be able to elect any candidate running for office, local, county, state and federal. I will cast my vote — but not a happy vote — and will continue to do so in all elections so I may express my opinion of the candidates elected to office good, bad or indifferent. No vote? No right to speak!
