    I doubt Obama wins Texas based on historical elections, but I also know a lot of people our age who are fully supporting Obama who voted for Bush in ’04. If he did happen to carry Texas it would be a shock, but I wouldn’t say it is impossible.And to the other comment, how does what work?

    Okay, I voted. But I am not happy about it… I wouldn’t be happy about voting the other way either… But I can quit stressing over it now.

    really good blog. interesting information and i agree. this is probably the toughest election for to vote in since i have been old enough to vote. i am torn, that is why I said i would write in Jesus! But, my vote will truly be wasted in numerical sense towards the outcome. I hate to vote Republican because I traditionally have. I have to vote though. War or infanticide? Both end in death to innocent people.

    I hate the idea of choosing the lesser of two evils… That seems like a view that is opposed to a Christian worldview. I mean, I think it is the Christian responsibility to pray for our leaders, but I cannot see it being the “Christian responsibility” to vote… and I really do not like either candidate… PERIOD. I think there might be better options in Congress, but not the presidency.What do you think about the “lesser of two evils” concept versus the “holy” concept in Scripture?WHat do you think about actually not voting for the president period?

    What scripture reference are you talking about with the ‘holy’ thing? I mean, both candidates claim to be Christian – to what extent I don’t know – but I don’t think it has done much for their politics.On the not voting thing, I don’t think we have a biblical responsibility to do so, but I do think we have a responsibility as citizens to do so. I do, however, think that the Bible should guide our votes. Before I voted today I drove around praying for a little bit first, not that God would tell me who to vote for, but that He would put the best person in place despite who I, or anyone else votes for.Just one side note on this issue though, I am tired of people telling me that if I don’t vote then I can’t complain about who wins. I did vote, but no matter who wins I am still going to complain… so will everyone else, whether they voted or not. 1st Amendment right.

    Yea, I know the independents are on there, but historically independent votes go down to the benefit of the republican side. Not saying that to be negative to republicans, but just as fact. In Texas it doesn’t matter much, McCain wins, but like in Florida, most independent voters would vote democrat if it was just between the two parties, so since an independent will never win, that vote just boosts the chances of the republicans.
