…and he shook out his clothes and said to them, “Your blood be on your own heads! I am clear of this responsibility.” Acts 18:6 NIV

It’s Veteran’s Day, time to talk about our duty to those who fought and died for what we’re wasting today.

Who do you want for President? Me, I’d like Benjamin Netanyahu. Have we got anybody like him?

I want constitutional government of, by and for the people, not of, by and for inept or corrupt career politicians, nor a biased media that chooses what to report, what to hide and what to make up.

Let’s stop judges who legislate from the bench, executives who “enact” unconstitutional laws with a swipe of their pens.

Stop putting riders on Congressional bills so something bad hitchhikes into law with something good, or something good gets tossed because of the bad attached to it.

A proud country that leads the world from a position of strength. A strong military.

Peace at home balanced with personal liberty.  Secure borders; I have compassion for people seeking a better life, but I hate feeling colonized by illegal immigrants, and I hate what illegal criminals are getting away with here, and I'd rather pray for terrorists from a distance. 

Passing our time-tested values on to our children. School choice for parents.

Tax reform. A business-friendly environment. The gold standard, or some other tangible basis for value in the paper we spend.

Leaders who won’t leave our people hostage while they make bad deals with unspeakably evil enemies. 

Leaders who work to unite us, not divide us.

I want honor, integrity, dignity, competence, compassion, morality, and courageous commitment to keep promises made to the voters and to our veterans.  I want common sense and godly wisdom in our leaders; knowledge, though invaluable, is neither of these.

I won’t try to influence your choice, but I’d love to influence you not to throw away your vote.

Only God can fix the mess we’re in, but many could lead us back in the right direction—and many could dig us in deeper.

We need real leaders—and that takes committed, informed voters.

Now I’ve told you. Come on, y’all. Step up to the plate.

Avi, we’ve let You down, but please don’t give up on America. Forgive us, and give us leaders after Your own heart. Heal our land, and give us also the willingness to be healed. In Your holy name, Amen.
