I enjoy talking politics. I do. I like to learn about people’s perspectives and assess our government’s choices. I am not always as informed as I should be, and I don’t mind admitting that. Probably, that is because in the past some of my information has come from those around me. Some of it is trustworthy, and some of it is fueled mostly by passionate morals/stands.
As this election season has progressed, I’ve made it a priority to become better informed. I am constantly checking factcheck.org and reading the headlines to assess the info invading my brain. I know where I stand on some issues. There are some that I still don’t know which side to support. It’s a lot more involved than I’m sure it seems on the surface. Take something from one place to transfer to another. Pull the plug on another important thing so that this other important thing can take place. Much of it seems priorital. But I’m sure there is also a great that is “all about selfish political gain”. This breaks my heart, but seemingly unavoidable.
So at this point, I am undecided who will get my stamp on election day. I see both sides on many issues. And I still have so many unanswered questions. So as I pray for this decision, I trust that God will use whatever occurs to further His kingdom. He is such a wise and mighty ruler, and none of this is happening outside His realm.
What issues are important to you in this election? What issues will possibly determine your vote?
