    My son, as some of you know, is in the Army. Right now training in Psy Ops....i'm so very proud of him. He loves the Lord with all his heart and isn't afraid to say so. During this election, we've seen people at eachother's throats. It seems it's ALL about the party....not what is really right for us. My son made this statement today on Facebook....and it's something we all need to remember!

    Regardless of your party affiliation, when we lose focus of who should be the leader of our lives, nation and world, it will all fall apart regardless. I serve a king bigger than any man ruling on this earth.

    He has never been into politics.....in fact he thought i was exaggerating when back in 2008 i was so against Obama. 2 weeks ago when he was home on leave, he said "Obama has to go".

    Can anyone else see this? We don't always know what God's plan is....but as Christians we know that if we turn our backs on what's right and what God has instructed us to do, and what could happen if we don't abide by His laws, we should not be surprised by what happens as a result.

    I completely agree. It's interesting, because the last week I've been seeing Lincoln's call for a day of humiliation fasting and prayer in alot of areas i hang out.

    "Proclamation for National Day of Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer" by Pres. Abraham Lincoln

    God is our ruler. And for too long the people have been wicked and ignored our duties to God, ourselves, our families, and our communities. It's time to change that.

    At the Constitutional Convention Ben Franklin stated:

    I hope we all remember that

    I think Romney has that potential if He humbles Himself and listens to the promptings of the Holy Spirit as well as uses His God Given talents and skills.

    Ask Him yourself. He often let's us make our own decisions though.

    Caroljo, Thank your son for me.
    And would you ask him if it is true that Obama does not allow chaplains to use the words God or Jesus?

    He told me we should all vote for Gary Johnson. Maybe you misheard? He was pretty adamant about it.
