Before You Vote...Remember

"When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public
officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to
choose for rulers, 'just men who will rule in the fear of God.' The
preservation of [our] government depends on the faithful discharge of
this Duty; if the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in
office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for
the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or
incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public
revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the
citizen will be violated or disregarded. If [our] government fails to secure
public prosperity and happiness, it must be because the citizens neglect
the Divine Commands, and elect bad men to make and administer the
Laws." ~ Noah Webster

So glad I have the right to vote! In Oregon, we have the luxury of doing a mail in ballot. It is so convenient for busy moms like me. I'm praying God's will this election. May God have mercy on this nation!
