How does anyone justify voting for any of these Presidential candidates?


By Robert Melaccio, sr(28,936) Robert Melaccio, sr



Let me ask you a few questions? Do you research the candidates of your choice prior to voting for them? Do you know their voting record in Congress? Do you know what they have actually supported, promoted or most importantly fund? If the answer to that is no, "I do what most people do, I see them on TV, read about them, make my own opinions based on what I see and hear them" let me ask you this. How do you really know they represent your thinking, your goals, what and where you perceive your nation should and better yet you and your loved ones should be going?

Example, many people love Obama because first of all he is young, second he is an outstanding speaker, they like his wife and family and they believe and formed the opinion that he will bring change. No problem with any of that part. Well once again do you know his record? Do you really know what he voted for and what he didn’t vote for, or have you judged the book by the cover or like the Easter Bunny just grabbed hold of it because the package looked good. Is it he is one of yours and you trust him? Is he somehow different from the rest and you feel it in your bones, your vibes? Are you making a social / society statement? Is that how you do all your business?

Now I don’t wish to single out this poor man because most of the rest are in office already and some have been for decades and in my opinion are no different. Many of the others had, were or perhaps held positions. So we have the "builders", the designers and the actual implementators of their ideology of all that this nation is going through. Certainly that is true when 90% of Americans are not happy with Congress. So just where do you fit in? It is really perplexing. Are you like they, in my opinion who say one thing but do another?

If you believe in NAFTA, SPP, Comprehensive Immigration, Outsourcing American jobs and manufacturing, the lowering of the standard of living for Americans simply stated you agree with them and you empower them so why are you listed among those who disapprove of them?  Why, well if you listen carefully to what is said and not said and more important that is what they did and are doing and will continue to do, and get this as they say each and every time they speak yet, vote for them anyway, that is the only thing one can think. You like what they do.

If not then one must ask rhetroically of course people who do this are either, [my apologies] stupid, ignorant, uninformed, apathetic, or, as stated,  you support them regardless of what you say to others. Does that sound like them? Well that is exactly what it is.

Almost sixty percent of Americans who can vote don’t because of that. They give their proxy to the rest who do vote to elect these same ones you who do vote, yes and then they gripe.

So here is the question, explain to me [ especially you who profess to be church goers] if 31% interest or more on credit cards is moral? Explain to me how someone can steal ID and that is not sin or a crime? Explain to me how organizations can reap billions in profits while people are losing their homes, can’t feed their kids, have no medical insurance or retirement and the list is endless and that is acceptable and not greed and sin?

Finally explain to me how YOU justify voting for them and WHY you think they will suddenly bring this magical CHANGE? I'd really like to hear your feedback because for the likes of me there is in my opinion no rational explanation. In my opinion you are doing no more then just groping for straws.

THE CHRISTIAN MAN from VIRGINIA, USA: (126 days 10 hours ago.)
A GOOD REASON FOR PEOPLE(VOTERS) AND PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES TO EXAMINE THEMSELVES IS THE UTTER LACK OF UNDERSTANDING OF HEALTH ISSUES. IF PEOPLE WOULD SIMPLY EXAMINE WHAT'S HAPPENED TO THE AMERICAN DIET IN THE 20TH CENTURY BEFORE THE 21ST CENTURY; THEY WOULD REALIZE WHY AMERICANS ARE IN NEED OF WORKING HARDER FOR THE SAME PAY. ALSO, WHEN WE CONSUME A MUCH GREATER PROPORTION OF THE WORLD'S GOODS THAN NECESSARY; WE WOULD WE REALIZE THE CAUSE FOR OUTSOURCING. WE NEED TO START PRODUCING IN MUCH MORE CREATIVE WAYS WITH HIGHER TECHNOLOGIES FOR OUR OWN RESOURCES. THIS ENTAILS LOOKING FOR AND PRODUCING RESOURCES (DURABLE GOODS AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY) BOTH DOWNWARD AND VERTICALLY. HOWEVER, ULTIMATELY WE MUST LOOK TO GOD, OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, FOR GUIDANCE AND THE REALITY OF HOW TO BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY(CHILDREN, OUR BRAIN POWER) Also, we should eat LIVE EATING FOOD(ie., FRUITS, VEGGIES, NUTS, POTATOES) and combat OTHER FOODS NOT ORIGINATING FROM ANIMALS. INSTEAD OF DEAD FOODS LIKE LOTS OF MEAT to conquer obesity. In Noah's day, a real person in the HOLY BIBLE, people lived to be 900+ years old. A lot of this has to do with amount of exercise they did as well.
