Should we vote for Romney? (Please read before commenting)

"The 2012 Presidential election is not looking very good... We have Barak Obama on one hand, who opposes biblical,conservative, small government values, and ascribes to a very Socialist approach in politics. We also have Mitt Romney on the other side, who may not look as bad at first glance, but clearly promotes government control, and anti-Biblical/conservative values.So we have a choice between two scary men, if we adhere to the Republican/Democrat paradigm. Why is that at all an appetizing choice? Both Mitt Romney and Barak Obama are strongly in support of tyranny, why should we vote for either of them? Why sacrifice our core beliefs, and vote for a candidate out of fear? Many if not most people are voting for a candidate this election, out of fear. They are scared that the other candidate will be elected.

My question is this: When does God say it is okay to compromise your beliefs, out of fear of what is to come? We are told in 2 Timothy 1:7 "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." God does not want us acting out of fear of what men can do to us, but rather love towards others. History has shown us the power of fearful men, and what damage it can cause. You merely have to look at events like the Holocaust to see that. There are also many examples in American history alone, that show what can happen when we are motivated out of fear. We voted out of fear, when we almost completely abolished the 4th Amendment, by passing the Patriot Act(which almost completely eliminated our right to privacy). We passed that bill out of fear of Terrorism, and handed the rights of our children and grandchildren over to the government on a silver platter. We acted out of fear, when we had the Government put American citizens of Japanese descent in PRISON CAMPS and confiscate their property, during World War 2, after Pearl Harbor.

Fear breeds hatred, and hatred is not what we as Christians should be supporting! It is understandable to be afraid of what might happen if Obama takes office again, but we have to remember that God is still in control no matter what happens! God is in control of the future, it is our responsibility to make sure that we trust Him, and act accordingly regardless of what future events may transpire. God is in control, and we should stay true to Him despite our fear.The Bible says that "perfect love casteth out all fear". Do we love God and each other that much, or will we allow ourselves to be ruled by fear? This is a far reaching principle that applies to far more than just politics, and I think that we should all try to apply it to our daily lives as well. I am not saying that I have no fear of what is coming, or that I have perfect love, in fact I strike out on both counts, but this is something that I think we all need to deal with, and I just thought I should share it..."

Uh, no.

I had to stop reading there. Firstly, our out-of-control foreign policy of the past few decades, along with our history of discriminatory domestic laws, have proven that biblical (or evangelical) values and small-government values are incompatible with each other.

Secondly, the idea that Obama is a socialist continues to be laughable. You're just parroting a lazy Faux News/AM radio talking point. Obama is a corporatist oligarch, just like Willard. That's why neither are getting my vote.

Perfect scripture!

I'm totally sharing this with my family and friends. They are, indeed, scared of the other guy.

Nice! I wrote it to let my family and friends see, and then realized that others might want to use it as well, so you are welcome to share it with as many people as you want! Thanks for helping to get the message out!

i think

the flood of tears will start for me some more. I haven;t cired since 2000. we have no choices. GJ is not a choice. Obama is not even considerable. Romney is a cheater.

Keepin' it real.

No. No. No. We should not vote for Romney.

Nor should we vote for Obama. I have a feeling TPTB will get Romney in no matter what....and he will be in for 8 years.

Obama will be out in four and maybe the GOP will have learned their lesson by then.
