Who remembers back some six years ago, when then Senator Barack Obama was gearing up to win the White House?
At each and every Obama rally we witnessed masses of glassy-eyed, drooling Obamabots cheering on their political messiah. The comments that escaped their lips were laughable – and terrifying. Did they truly believe that this man, this empty-shirted liberal who had never held down a real job or actually accomplished anything… could really “fundamentally transform” America in a positive way?
It seems that they did…
“It was the most memorable time of my life. It was a touching moment because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know, if I help him, he’s gonna help me.”
There are hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, of American voters just like that woman. The only way to combat that kind of ignorance is for us to do our best to be winsome and gracious as we educate our fellow citizens.
Many Americans enter the polling station with little knowledge of the men, women and issues that they will be voting for… and these decisions are too important to simply guess on.
So, this election season, we want to encourage you to get informed by using one of our voting guides.
Over at Christian-Jewish Voter Guides, there are several options that you can take advantage of:
Tea Party DEBT-HAWKS – Voter Guide
Our favorite of the bunch happens to be the Life, Marriage Conscience, & Israel VOW voting guide, which was developed by Constitutional attorneys, Capitol Hill staffers, political strategists, 501(c) activists, and humanitarian philanthropists. We think the VOW could be a game changer in helping to educate voters about the candidates they are voting for. Far too often American voters are punching the ballots of politicians they disagree with, when a simple voting guide could have helped inform their decision and change their vote.
Maybe you look over the VOW and decide it’s not for you… any of the other above voting guides can also be extremely helpful to you in the voting booth.
These voter guides are for you to educate yourself, but we also want you to print out as many of these as you can and distribute them to all of the voters in your life. Take a stack to church with you, or hand them out at a Halloween Party. Make sure that you give these voter guides to as many of your friends and acquaintances as you can!
Together, we can win this nation back.
