You Still Have Time To Do Your Homework (Politically)

I am concerned about the voter rhetoric pertaining to this presidential election. Some only want the next president to fix the financial mess via Wall Street. Congress and world leaders are "on it". Neither presidential candidate has the lone strategy to do it. Either would listen to the top "financial fixers" and make their best educated decisions. Additionally, some don't care about any other attributes of the candidates (other than they want those who worked hard and/or studied hard in school, to pay their way in this world because they did not). Americans need to examine the deeper qualities of our future leaders. We will spend countless hours researching cars, computers, cell phones, etc. yet we will only continue to read from the same sources when it comes to our candidate choices. Some want a candidate who is a smooth talker (and neither McCain nor Obama are when unscripted). We only have to look to Moses for perspective. Exodus 4:10-Then Moses said to the LORD, "Please, Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither recently nor in time past, nor since You have spoken to Your servant; for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue." Now, who is going to argue his leadership qualities? Those he chose to call friends? His motives for his people? Not I, Lord. True, we have been robbed financially by the "college boys" on Wall Street; however, a much larger theft might be in the wings. That would be the erasure of our political ideology set forth from the founding fathers. The Democrats of FDR's day are not the same as the liberal Democrats of today. Even some Democrats in Congress (old school) fear and recoil at some of the agendas pushed onto the floors of the House and Senate. Republicans too have swung a bit "left". So basically we are voting for McCain (A Republican-Democrat) or Barack Obama (A Democratic-Socialist). Do your homework! This test is a final.
