The 2012 Election-How I replied to the perplexed

[Here is another exchange I thought would be of interest]

EMAIL FROM A RenewAmerica  READER

A baffled reader’s question

I am baffled Mr. Keyes. What is it you propose we do. I’m all for the Cross,
I’m putting my eternal hope in the Christ who died on that Cross but what
other than “the effectual prayer” that 2Chronicles 7:14 calls for and I have
personally prayed this prayer many times in the past few weeks, what do
suggest we as Blood bought Christians do? I have lived among the Mormons,
had them for neighbors, customers and friends and even as an employer and
while I think their doctrines leave them without true Salvation, I found
them to be honest trustworthy, family oriented and in the World’s eyes
upstanding. I know none of these attributes will save them but it beats
Islam a hundred fold.
Again, my question, what do you propose to elevate the cross in this
election? I would prefer a born again blood bought Christian but it seems
there are none in the running. Just sit and let the Islams have their way,
is that your suggestion? I really am serious, what do you suggest?

MY REPLY

I have made the approach I intend to take clear in recent postings at my blog.  Please visit my website Loyal to liberty and read Seeing no choice, what will I do in November and JUST VOTE NO to the whole elitist political scam.  The site also contains other articles that analyze the problems with Romney, Ryan and the elitist GOP leadership in general.  It’s worth at least perusing the articles available, which you can easily do using the navigation bar links “America’s Real Party System”, “Without Representation”, and “Restoring Representation”. If you have questions or thoughts as you explore these offerings, feel free to get in touch.  You can also use the comment feature. I read all of the comments. I reply whenever I think doing so will be of general interest to readers.
My problem with Mitt Romney is that the overwhelming preponderance of evidence from his public life and career marks him as a socialist with little or no respect for the God-acknowledging principles of the American Declaration of Independence.  Until he began running for President, he openly professed himself to be a “progressive”.  His major public policy achievements include Romneycare (the model on which Obamacare was based, which includes socialist and morally objectionable features strong opposition prevented Obama from openly including in his plan, so far); and the implementation of gay marriage in Massachusetts.  The greatest objections most grassroots Republicans have to Obama are his drive to socialism (with Obamacare as exhibit #1); and his abuse of executive power in derogation of the Constitution.  Romney has exhibited the same objectionable characteristics in his career in public life, with the most telling examples coming after his supposed conversion to conservatism.
He has also consistently taken positions on the foundational moral issues (e.g., the respecting the unalienable right to life and defending the God endowed natural family from the assault against it in the name of “homosexual rights”) that are rationally irreconcilable with America’s God-acknowledging founding principles.  Every day I am reminded of the evidence for this.  Just yesterday I ran across a report from 2007 (well after his supposed conversion to conservatism) in which he criticized the Congress for intervening on behalf of Terri Schiavo ( see the article Romney says Govt shouldn’t have stopped Terri Schiavo’s Euthanasia. )[Note to LTL readers: Romney’s position re the judicial murder of Terri Schiavo is similar to the one Barack Obama took in 2008.  Contrast their views with the argument in my WND article here, and the in depth treatment of the issues of constitutional principle here. Maybe in this, as with Obamacare, Obama simply followed Romney’s unprincipled example.] The pattern reported in this case is typical. Romney takes a public stance that corrupts the nation’s respect for Declaration principle; and that ascribes to the courts the authority to violate unalienable rights.  This corruption of public moral and constitutional principle is supposedly offset by some particular action that seems to be consistent with his claimed pro-life views, an appearance that cynically serves his political ambition.)
I promised the Lord long ago that I would never purposely support or vote for anyone who violates His will for right and justice in this way.  I did not make an exception on account of false “racial pride” when Obama ran.  I will not make an exception on account of fear and a false sense of blind partisanship now. The “choice that is no choice” being offered in this election has been contrived to achieve exactly that result-i.e., lead people who profess to trust in God and Jesus Christ to betray their profession of faith.  I never can think or act as if these political events are just about human power and will, for “We know that we are from God, and the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.” (1 John:19)  We must be wary of the snares set by that power, not fall into them because we fear the one who sets them, letting evil in one form drive us to consort with evil in another.

Am I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? (Galatians 4:16)

    As usual, well stated.
    When people use that argument: “I have lived among the Mormons,
    had them for neighbors, customers and friends and even as an employer and while I think their doctrines leave them without true Salvation, I found them to be honest trustworthy, family oriented and in the World’s eyes upstanding. I know none of these attributes will save them but it beats Islam a hundred fold.”, I explain, again, that it is not a person’s religion, race, gender but it is their honesty, integrity, and life that I make a dicision on. I hold all thing up to the word and will of GOD. Including myself and my actions. I believe the word of GOD to be 100% true and accurate and it will never lead us to a lesser of evils. It will always lead to the best because GOD wants all humans to be their best as he created them to be (free, prosperous, joyful)… so He is the standard. Will anyone add up to that standard?…No. But who is striving to achieve it? Who will not follow the status quo, because they follow the teachings of Christ? Who will state their beliefs without comprimise, because that is what they believe in? I might not even agree 100% with those beliefs but they did not change their tune to gain the Illegitimate vote of 3% undecided voters. (That is anther way all the false conservatives showed their hands, when they went after Mr Akin. As my grandma would say, “they(false conservatives) aren’t a patch on his(Mr Akin) pants”. Meaning “the tip of his little finger has more character than their whole being”.)
    “I promised the Lord long ago that I would never purposely support or vote for anyone who violates His will for right and justice in this way.” Amen Mr. Keyes! I have never voted that way either and that is why I believe the primaries are more important than the general election. How many who wring their hands now, investigated, talked to, studied, voted, supported or worked for the canditate that best suites their liking. Who, throughout the year keep track on how their reps are doing with the promises they made before election? How many even know the names of their representatives in the local, state or federal level? How many have them on speed dial? How many of them have them in their email accounts? “Don’t have time?” Then you don’t have time to wring your hands or to vote now either. Just my humble opinion.
    God will continue to bless you Mr Keyes. I am grateful to the LORD for you.
