For Such A Time As This

If you want to help influence this election, use your time wisely. We only have a week and a half to do all we can to get McCain elected. Ask yourself how you are in the position to affect as many people as possible before the election.

One Recommendation: Wise Personal Engagement – person to person:

  • Ask people (not in CA or NY) if they have made up their minds yet about what presidential candidate they are voting for.
  • If they say yes, McCain, move on. You don't want to waste your time in a love-fest about how bad Obama is.
  • If they say yes, Obama, move on. Don't try to change their minds. Most people do not want someone to change their minds once it is made up. It's called pride. Deal with it.
  • If they say no, then ask what is their top consideration when voting for president.
  • Once they tell you, then offer the best reason or reasons why McCain would do a better job in that area than Obama.

That is unless they offer any of the following as their top consideration for president:

  • one who will take money from those who work hard and pay taxes to those who don't work and don't pay taxes (i.e. "spread the wealth around").
  • one who will appoint justices to the Supreme Court who will preserve the right of women to kill their unborn children.
  • one who believes that world dictators don't like us because they just don't understand us.
  • one who is not one of those evil Republicans.
  • one who is black.

In any of these instances, than Obama is their man; just move on.*

Another Recommendation: Wise Personal Engagement – via the internet:

  • forward to everyone you know good online media clips that make a good argument.
  • most who have yet to make up their minds are not the most read-up individuals, so most of them will not be very interested in reading stuff about who to vote for, but they would be willing to watch something. (Homer: “Ahhh, pretty lights moving around and making funny sounds.”) This is pathetic I know, but the sad reality is that these still-undecided voters will be deciding the outcome of this election.*
  • For those who don’t have internet access, bring over your laptop or put them in front of your computer and show them something online.

    *If you prefer watching over reading, it’s obvious you are not one of those I am talking about above. Afterall, you are reading right now. ; - )

Another Recommendation: Wise Personal Engagement – with God:

  • not only should you do all that you can as if everything depended on you, but you should pray as if everything depended on God.*

    * The truth is, everything is dependent on God, but apart from direct divine intervention, He uses His people in the process of redemption. (e.g. the Book of Ruth).
