Governor Palin – VP?

September 5, 2008

OK…I got this email with a link to a video by Governor Palin. The basic message of the email is that this person was feeling much better about Palin as VP. Well, the only way you can feel better about her as VP is if you are willing to vote for McCain. Otherwise, there is nothing to feel better, or not, about.

Well, I shared that with Dave and we both agreed that I should write back. So, I hit reply to all and this is what I wrote:

Shalom, everyone,

I may step on some toes here, but I really believe this is important enough to take that chance. Please understand that I write in love and out of concern for our country. I also write out of concern for my brothers and sisters in Yeshua/Jesus.

I REALLY hate to burst anyone’s bubble, but when was the last time you saw a vice president actually DO anything of significance? Unless the president dies and they take over, they are pretty much kept in the background. They have NO real authority or power. A vice presidential choice is really for show only. It helps to win over those who are opposed to the presidential candidate. Which means that we still end up with McCain who is only the lesser of two evils…not a positive choice.

I am not faulting Palin in the least. Palin is not the issue. The issue is that choosing her as VP is basically just a bone being thrown to the “conservatives” and “Christians” to get them to vote for McCain, who realizes that his continued snubbing of his nose at conservatives and Christians may cause him to lose the election. Please remember that having Palin as a VP will NOT change McCain’s views on anything. He still stands for the same evil he has always stood for. She will be powerless to change him and is basically just a puppet, being used in an attempt to win our vote.

My family is voting for Alan Keyes, (even if we have to write him in) who is a godly man that we have met in person. We are not the only ones. We are hearing of more and more Christians who are also planning do doing that. He is a strong Christian and very firm on the constitution and on the fact that our country was founded upon biblical principles and must be surrendered to God’s authority. He does not waffle on being prolife or on anything that we have seen. His record is very clear (as are the records of both McCain and Obama in the opposite direction). He has never wavered, but has held a steady course. He has the political experience needed to run this country.

We are choosing to not vote for the lesser of two evils out of fear. We choose to vote for the best man for the country and believe God will either do a miracle and get him in or He will allow evil to win because our country needs it to bring us to our knees.

You can check him out here:

He spoke at a prolife rally. His speech is not very long, but it sums up really well what he stands for. I really encourage everyone to prayerfully take the time to listen to him.

Our country is at a very real crossroads. For those who are afraid that voting for someone other than McCain may open the doors for Obama, isn’t that saying that we do not believe that God is capable of getting a righteous man in office? We need to be obedient to God’s word which tells us to always choose righteousness. I have not found a scripture yet that tells me to choose the lesser of two evils, although I am open to someone pointing one out to me. The lesser of two evils is still evil…not righteousness. We do have a righteous man running…and he IS qualified. He is not an unknown out of left field.

I leave you with a quote from one of our founding fathers:

Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair; the rest is in the hands of God.
George Washington
