No Matter What Happens

vote-button.jpgBarack Obama? John McCain? Oprah? No matter what happens today…I am proud to be an American. I am thankful for the privilege I have to grow up with the freedoms that we get to enjoy everyday. I am thankful that we live in a country that allows us to vote.

I love the fact that God knows exactly who is going to be our next president. I love the fact that God knows exactly where we will be in four years…eight years…twelve years.

Does God “choose” the president? Good question. What do you think? I do have an opinion on that, but there’s not enough space and it’s not really the point. The point is that we do our part no matter what.

What I do know is that whether we are talking about us as individuals or are talking about us as a nation, we reap what we sow. We “end up” in life or as a nation based on the decisions that we have made and the habits that we have developed. We reap what we sow.

Some will choose to vote based on how their wallets will be affected. Some will vote based on moral issues etc… Either way, we are responsible personally and as a nation for what we decide.

That being said, I am on my way to the voting shack (I live in a small country town).

By the way, I love Ed Young‘s recent series Politicked!

I wish you the best as you vote!

    I’ve already voted (early and at that time they said already 15% had voted – anticipate a record turnout – GOOD). Although my parents always split their vote, they both said that if you DON’T vote, don’t complain when you don’t get what you want. In so many places in the world the citizens don’t get a choice. We can have a voice in electing our leaders. USE IT! There. I’ve done my rant.

    Just noticed your note about Shanes Rib Shack promo. To get it you need to get an official “I Voted Today” sticker and give it to them, but it doesn’t say where to get the “I Voted Today” sticker. I don’t remember them giving stickers out at the polling both…

  • @ Marti – I already ate at Shane’s! No need to show anything. Just be one of the first 300 to show up over the age of 18. Great meal!

    You don’t need anything at Starbucks either, but I’m not sure about Ben and Gerry’s.

    I feel like you should start a marti.com blog! You have great wisdom to share! Keep it coming!
