Three Strikes

By: Susan Bea Good

We are being tested. Fine men, but terrible Conservatives, like Christie, Bush, and Romney, are being strategically presented to predict the reception they might receive as 2016 Republican nominees for President.

I have been a loyal Republican voter since 1976, when at the age of 17 I registered to vote. Soon I experienced my first election-disappointment, as my non-conservative candidate lost. In 2008 I voted for a second non-conservative, and he lost. In 2012 I again voted for the Republican’s candidate, Mitt Romney, and for a third time the endorsed non-conservative lost.

In past years I’ve criticized those who withheld their votes, in defiance of a Republican moderate candidate. But this time I will be joining them! I’ve started to put out the word that I too will withhold my vote in 2016, if the Republicans do not put forward a true Conservative. Three strikes and they are out with me!

“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” (Romans 12:2/ESV)

The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it.
