I think the better question is how do we endeavor to show our appreciation for that blessing. Serving God and being active in how we’re treated by the government are not mutually exclusive. In fact, I firmly believe that we have a duty to each play our part in holding our government accountable and in check. That looks like different things for all of us.
Yesterday I was pretty vocal in my disappointment for a certain Republican Representative for their vote to strip me of my rights. We live under a two-party system, I would absolutely advocate people vote for the candidates that will help maintain a conservative majority in the House and Senate both locally and federally. However, I won’t devote my time or efforts to any candidate that doesn’t pass constitutional muster. I don’t care what party they are from. It is one thing to understand how our political system works and vote to that end. It is another thing entirely to advocate for a candidate with your time and/or money. I make absolutely no apologies for that.
We aren’t going to agree with every candidate all the time, but there are some things that cannot be compromised-some things we MUST agree on. My right to life and liberty will be fiercely guarded, I don’t care if it makes anyone angry or what it costs me in the political realm.
