VOTING 2012

by Molly Noble Bull


I will not be voting for the present administration or any Democrat in 2012 because their stand on abortion and other important issues is contrary to mine. I'm not too excited about Mitt Romney either though he is certainly a very nice man.
What should I do?
I watched both the Republican and the Democratic conventions, and what a difference. Some of the Demos booed our Lord at their convention this year and refused to support the Nation of Israel, and their platform supports abortion and “Gay” marriage. Yet the Republican platform opposes abortion and “Gay” marriage, and God is mentioned in the Republican platform with respect and honor.
So after much prayer, I finally have my answer. I can support the Republican platform without reservations. So I will be voting straight Republican in November. That way, I won’t have to put an X or a check by the name of either presidential candidate. I will be voting for the Republican platform.
This is possibly the most important election ever, and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
Please vote for this wonderful platform in 2012, written by true believers.
My suggestion?
Vote straight Republican in 2012, and don’t forget to pray. Pray for the President of the United States and all in authority no matter who wins, and pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.

In some states the straight party ticket does not include a vote for the office of the president. So, in those states, those who vote the straight party ticket must still cast their vote for the presidential candidate of their choice if they want to have a voice in this election.

(Unless you want four more years of the current administration, you must vote for the Republican presidential candidate. That's the only choice with a possibility of making the change.)

Thanks for writing and for giving this important information, Anonymous. But in my state, Texas, you can vote a straight ticket. So I still plan vote straight Republican.
For others in other states, pay attention to what Anonymous just said.
Love,
Molly

I'd never heard of voting for a straight party ticket, but I totally agree that the Democrats stand for everything that opposes Christian principles. I've read a lot about this, including The Amateur and a wonderful little book called Team Obama. Our pastor recently preached about the watchman on the tower being responsible for giving the alert. He very safely but meaningfully pointed out the same anti-Christian beliefs you have.

Dear Roger,
Thanks for writing. Be sure to check out straight ticket voting to see how it works in your state. I'm glad it's available here in Texas. I can't know the views of all the candidates, but I can know what is in the Republican platform. And it agrees with my views. Also, be sure to read the comment that Anonymous wrote above. Apparently, some states have different laws regarding straight ticket voting. You will want to know the laws in your state before you go to the polls.

I've never voted in my life, but this may be the year. I hate politics if for no other reason than they lie. I always hated the thought that I didn’t know enough about anyone to vote wisely. I also feared that if I did vote for someone and later discovered they were for something I was totally against, or they didn’t do what they said, I’d feel great remorse. However your post has given me reason to vote as you will be amd why. Thanks much!
Blessings,
Kym

I have not been a big fan of Romney's, but I have to say, he knocked my socks off in the first debate. I've never seen that side of him before. His knowledge of the economy and - naturally considering his background - business blew me away.

Here in Michigan we hired a business man, Rick Snyder, to be our governor. He's done more to help Michiganders in the past 2 years that the last politician managed in her 8 years in office.

I'm willing to vote for another businessman for president.

Molly Noble Bull said...

Thanks for writing, Pegg. Since I will be voting straight Republican, I will be voting for Romney, too. And yes, he did a great job in the debate.
Love,
Molly

I will never be able to vote on one issue. As opposed as I personally am to abortion, I'm also opposed to the Republican disregard for those already born and suffering. The Democrats get a bad name for being liberal about social causes, but at least they're looking out for those who need care.

I also have a hard time believing that Romney will do anything he says since he changes position more than any politician I've ever seen. I was never inclined to vote for him, but had I been, his shift to the left during the debate this week would make me nervous. Unfortunately, his positions seemed more tied to the audience he's speaking to at any given time than to his core beliefs.

Voting is not an easy choice so rather than encourage anyone to vote for a specific person or party, I encourage people to examine the candidates positions on all aspects of life and then vote their own conscience.

And I praise God that we live in a country where such discussion is possible.

Thanks for writing, Anonymous. I agree with you that everyone should vote his or her conscience. And praise the Lord, we live in a country where such discussions are possible.

Molly not every state ballot in every voting precinct has the option of voting a straight ticket anymore. At least not in Illinois. You have to vote for each individual separately.

This election is the most pivotal of any we have had and if it goes one way rather than the other a lot of people are going to be in for a rude awakening. I strongly urge people to read beyond the headlines to make sure you are voting as you think you are. If you haven't seen the movie 2016, I strongly suggest that you do. It may change your view on a lot of things.

Molly Noble Bull said...

Dear Pam,
Thanks for writing and for your update on voting a straight ticket. As I said, you can still do it here in Texas.
We saw the movie, 2016, when it first came out, and urge others to see it as well.
Thanks again.
Love,
Molly

You're brave to post your views, Molly, and I agree with you 100%.

Molly Noble Bull said...

Thanks, Robin. Did you know that today is Freedom Sunday where pastors all over the country will be doing exactly what I did?
Love,

I always knew what a straight ticket meant but I still thought you had to go thru the ballot and check each name you wanted. That's how it works in OH. I can't support Obama for the same reasons as you, Molly. But also because of the state of the country & economy. My 2nd biggest joy come Nov will be to cast a vote for Josh Mandel, and against the incumbent Senator Sherrod Brown, an avid Obama supporter. Neither Dem is popular here in southern Ohio esp the farther east you go into coal country. 40+ % of WV Dems nominated a TX inmate for president in May. Interesting stuff, this go round. I urge everyone to get out and vote, regardless of who you choose.

Molly Noble Bull said...

Thanks for telling us about Ohio, Teresa. I'm from a big state, Texas. But according to the news, y'all are the most important state in the union right now. Do you think Ohio will go Demo or Republican in November?
Love,
Molly

I agree with Kym about politicians. Sorry, I’m a little jaded. I grew up in politics in the Washington D.C. area. Yes, there are good men and women in there somewhere, but I am not comfortable with ANY of them intimately involved in my healthcare decisions. So if you feel this way, vote for them to have LESS power, not more. However, one power they should have is that of protecting human life. And what more vulnerable and in need of protection than that of the unborn!
And be careful thinking that when they say they care about the little guy, they really care about the little guy. Most care only for those who’ll line their pockets and only to the point where their pockets are lined. I have worked with wonderful people in wonderful agencies. However, I have too often seen organizations set up (by politicians) in such a way that the goal was more about appearing to help than it was to actually help. Lots of tax dollars lost in that effort. The devil is in the details. And I’m not talking completely metaphorically here.
Don’t just vote because the politician uses a beautiful name to describe a program. Understand the LONG-TERM impact of that program on the entire country. So many things that look good on the outside can be very destructive as a whole. Know the history of how these things have shifted behavior in the past. And sometimes programs don’t even set out to do what the title says it will. Look deeply into these things and pray!!!!!

Thanks for writing, Connie. The author of The Harbinger says we need to repent as a nation, if we want God's blessings and protection, and I agree. Maybe we should start right here on Writers Rest. Any idea how to do it? What do you think?
Love,
Molly

Too close to tell at this point. My sister predicts a landslide victory for Romney that shocks the liberal media. I drive all over the southeast corner of the state for work. If you go by the # of yard signs, Romney has it sown up. But rural OH differs greatly from urban OH. The big 3 counties (Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincy) were the only counties Obama won last time, but it was enuf to carry the state. I think it will come down to Hamilton County (Cincinnati) this time who typically votes Republican. Let's pray Ohio & Florida voters look at all the issues & not rely on John Stewart and SNL to tell them how to vote.

Thanks for telling us about Ohio. I hope the Republicans win. We need to pray.
