    Our local paper has run Thomas Sowell's series "Think before you vote"
    (I think that's the title) of 4 installments as of today (Sunday).

    It's a great read for before voting.

    One of the points was that we are choosing the BEST of the AVAILABLE prospects for running, (or ruining?) this country for the next 4 years. We aren't chosing a wife/husband, selecting a career etc, etc. but using our options to select the most qualified (in each person's mind) candidate for the highest position in the land/world.

    Dig up his editorials and read; might just be a bit of an eye-opener for those who are apathetic and/or undecided. It'll give you something to think about even if you've already decided.

    Stopping to think before voting is of course important, but may I suggest that you also pray and ask God for guidance in voting because the issues are often much more complex than we realize, and every coin has two sides.

    Craig,

    I don't want to minimize the importance of prayer, but if you go to school and neglect to study, I doubt that God will give you the test answers through prayer.

    Same with politics. It takes a bit of work to understand what is going on.

    Bush claims that his policies are a result of prayer. Well, then again, he prays to the same god as the muslims, so maybe they are.
