Who should I vote for?
In 1980, Ronald Reagan told us to answer that question by asking ourselves another: Are you better off today than you were four years ago?
If you are “better off” today then vote for the party currently inhabiting the White House. If you aren’t “better off” then elect the other party’s candidate.
I’m supposed to pick the president that’s best for me. Not best for you.
But I don’t have to.
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.” ~Apostle Paul (Philippians 2:3,4)
“Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.” ~King David (Psalm 119:36)
“Where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.” ~Apostle James (James 3:16)
“The most important [commandment],” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’There is no commandment greater than these.” ~Jesus (Mark 12:29-31)
A vote is a gift. Like every gift, it came from God to me for you.
Are you better off? I want you to be. And the rest of the world too.
