I thought the Obama campaign was a circus, 2016 is proving to be more of a circus than the previous election. However, it is the media making it such a circus something they are good at.
My original choice was Ben Carson, second was Marco Rubio, with Ben con seeding and Marco not doing well in the polls I felt cornered into voting for Ted Cruz, because the last person I want to vote for is Donald Trump.
Here is my problem with this entire nonsense. Some people within the evangelical circles are saying that any evangelical who supports Trump is not standing on godly principals. Give me a break! There is so much corruption in Washington it is pathetic. Do I think Trump is a believer, NO, however he isn't running to be a pastor of a church, he's running to be President. Do I think he is the best choice for America probably not yet, neither is Hillary Clinton. Do I think Trump has some good ideas, yeah, the fact that he is a businessman gives me hope that he could turn our country around if he is elected. Please don't misunderstand, I am not a supporter of Trump, however if my choice is between him and Hillary, I will vote for him.
The point of my post is that I am sick to death of those in the evangelical circles dogging others for their choice, or point of view, as believers I don't think that we should be doing that to each other. Instead I believe that we should encourage each other. I realize that politics is a touchy subject, just like religion. Also, the Holy Spirit impresses upon each of differently and what is okay for you may not be okay for me, and vice/versa.
Romans 13:1 - Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is
no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted
by God. ESV
Writing in a candidate that has no chance of winning and not voting messes up the electoral college and voting is something we should be proud to do.
I have wondered for eight long years why Obama was placed in authority over America, yet I trust and believe God knows what He is doing. And while I know a lot of people who will be upset if Trump is elected, I know even more who will be upset if Hillary is elected.
For me I am going to allow God to direct my steps and pray I am not a stumbling block to someone else.
