To the editor:
The November 2012 election may be as important as any in recent history. Since I first registered to vote at age 21 (I’m now 74) I have made certain that I haven’t missed expressing my view.
I feel if I vote and my candidate or issue doesn’t win, at least I have the right to complain because I did my part.
Recently I was told that only 50 percent of those who call themselves Christians actually cast their vote. I can’t prove the statistic, but it gives me pause to think. If we want to continue to live in a free America, we can’t be sitting on the sidelines and leave it to someone else to make decisions.
Today I read an interesting article by a Christian author. He stated that Scripture doesn’t tell us for whom to vote but tells how we should vote. Know where the candidate stands on issues that concern you and cast your vote for the one that fits the bill.
No matter who you vote for, be informed and cast your vote on Nov. 6.
