The most important election of our life time is only a few days away. Please whatever you do on November 6th, VOTE!! The very survival of our nation as we have known it is at stake. The following are my recommendations.
I am recommending a straight GOP vote for all positions on the ballot. If you vote straight GOP you don’t fill in the oblong blank for each Republican candidate.
There is much work to be done in the GOP; it isn’t perfect but right now its the best we have. If more conservative folks were in involved it would be much better. We have what we have because those who stand for righteousness, our constitutional rights, and fiscal responsibility are generally not involved.
The Democrats have gone over the deep end into godlessness, lawlessness, and massive spending frenzies. There is not a Democrat on the ballot that I could support in good conscience!
