“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” Samuel Adams
[Samuel Adams, The Writings of Samuel Adams, Harry Alonzo Cushing, editor (New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 1907), Vol. IV, p. 256, in the Boston Gazette on April 16, 1781.]
I don’t do official endorsements anymore. I have come to believe they are not particularly useful and they can foster a dependency instead of voters doing their own research and coming to their own thoughtful conclusions.
Many have lamented the number of GOP debates. Personally, I have welcomed them for several reasons. One is that these debates are the only time many Americans can see and hear the candidates. Two is that anyone can have a “bad night” for whatever reasons. Third, you get a better sense of the person and not just the candidate.
This particular campaign season has been an especially raucous one with deeper divides among supporters of
candidates and once again much pressure to align with a certain candidate as the “true conservative” “only choice” or if you are a Christian you “can not” or “must” you vote for or against a candidate. The name calling and vitriol among the candidates is at a new low. That is very unfortunate.
However, come this Tuesday the bottom line is it’s YOUR choice based on your heartfelt prayers and research as to who is the best GOP presidential candidate to serve and protect the United States of America.
