A fundamental understanding.

Is that all it takes? According to Soledad O’brien of CNN, that’s all we need in order to make a decision to vote in this Presidential election.

But what exactly does that mean? It means don’t look too closely at what your candidate has done in the past. Don’t consider his record in the governing he has done to this point. Don’t consider his ability to carry out his promises from the last time, just believe those for the future.

I sent Soledad an email, and a text, and an email, and a text asking her to explain herself. She had made the statement that she speaks for Americans everywhere when she says that President Obama is the only candidate for a free America.

I can’t help but wonder how she defines free, although I have a pretty good idea after listening to her for the past few years. She has never responded to any of my requests. I can’t blame her—she’s busy and apparently I am not.

I also understand that CNN is blatantly liberal, where FOX is strongly conservative. But I watch CNN to find out what everyone is hearing from the radical left, rather than what I would prefer hearing from FOX.

I am not trying to tell anyone for whom to vote. Neither candidate is perfect by any stretch of the imagination. But I do encourage everyone to vote.

Vote your conscience after praying about it. Learn where each candidate stands so you can vote from an informed position—God expects that of us. Vote from a world-view, not simply from the standpoint of what’s good for us in America.

I’m sure you can tell where I stand on this issue, but if you disagree (or even if you agree) please do so in the comments below. I won’t delete anyone simply because they have a different view.
