Wasted Vote? I Think Not

Since I was insulted for not voting for Romney and then told NOT to post any more comments in that forum.....

The argument that Romney is lying here, to gain political favor with his constituents and decrease trouble with the opposing party does NOT win my heart. You assume he is lying in your favor and feel better about that? I could equally argue that he is lying and hiding his favor for abortion, citing his past voting and financial records. "A lying tongue hates those who are crushed by it, And a flattering mouth works ruin." Proverbs 26:28. "The truthful lip shall be established forever, But a lying tongue is but for a moment." Proverbs 12:19. "What is desired in a man is kindness, And a poor man is better than a liar." Proverbs 19:22. "You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it." John 8:44.
Unfortunately forced sterilization in our country has a LONG history and did not start, and will not end with Obama. Despite Republican controlled leadership numerous times through our country's history this continues.

I do see that forced abortions are being funded by the US monies to the UN, which has been argued against and was stopped temporarily by Bush. But wouldn't any act of Romney against this legislation be against his previously quoted words, "There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda." I can't count on his action in the right direction.

You lament that the 'church' is fragmented politically. Do you really believe that the answer is for the church to vote for the 'lesser of two evils'? "Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;" Isaiah 5:20. "Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, 'I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.'" John 8:12. "I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness." John 12:46. "Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?" 2 Corinthians 6:14.

I have heard MANY christians admit that this is what they are doing, lament it, but they don't know what else to do. Shouldn't the best choice for a christian be to stand up for RIGHT no matter the cost? Aren't we called to be a light that brightens the whole world? "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden." Matthew 5:14.

You claim your goal is to vote Obama out of office. Do you not realize that he is but a figurehead of a system that is set out to destroy the american people? "For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places." Ephesians 6:12.

This IS a spiritual battle. To approach it otherwise is not the answer. "For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says:
"Awake, you who sleep,
Arise from the dead,
And Christ will give you light."
Walk in Wisdom
See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil." Ephesians 5:8-16.

You fear that any vote that does not go to Romney will ensure that Obama is again chosen as president. do you truly believe that this is the WORST possible outcome of this election? "And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." Matthew 10:28

Since my vote will change NOTHING in the direction this country is taking (romney and obama agree on all expanses of govt and removal of america rights [see point by point at]) my only ethical choice is to use my vote as a statement only. I STATE.....

I do not support you prideful, lying, blood shedding, wicked hearted men.
"These six things the Lord hates,
Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:
A proud look,
A lying tongue,
Hands that shed innocent blood,
A heart that devises wicked plans,
Feet that are swift in running to evil,
A false witness who speaks lies,
And one who sows discord among brethren."
Proverbs 6:16-19.
