    Obviously I voted for abortion…although war is a big issue for me too. But nothing can take precedence over life and death issues.

    Yes, that is certainly true. As Lou Engle says, “I wish I had the luxury of debating other issues.” There are definitely a lot of issues… and good and bad in both candidates. But I just can’t get past abortion.

    I knew I liked that man 🙂

    Yes, what a blessing that man is! He is probably the most involved warrior I know of that is engaging in the war to end abortion. James Dobson is a big one too. Did you happen to catch any of THE CALL San Diego yesterday on GodTV? Lou’s actually moved his entire family to California to see morals reinstated there (since the legalization of gay marriage).

    James Dobson…I should know this, but is that James of Life Today? No that’s James someone else…hmm who is James Dobson? I’m ashamed that I don’t know. Sorry. I didn’t see The Call- was it amazing?

    Actually, James Dobson is different from the James of Life Today (though I love both of them). James Dobson is the founder of Focus on the Family, a Christian organization that speaks out about the protection of family and the sanctity of human life. If you are ever feeling completely bored and would like to hear a snippet of why Christians over here like Sarah Palin so much, you can listen to an interview with James Dobson and Sarah Palin here:

    Ah I HAVE heard of him before…I just don’t know much about him. Thanks, Sis! I’ll listen to that tomorrow 🙂

    You are a gem, Sis.

    Hi Mr. M,

    I suspect that it would be hard for them to get the courts to allow it’s release. But that is certainly an interesting perspective. I just hope we don’t wake up on Wednesday with him being the President-elect.

    Has anyone looked into the LA tape as a matter for Homeland Security ? Seeing Obama is running for the top of the chain of command it only reasons that you look into any associations with known terrorists. Under the Patriot Act they don’t have to give it to GOP but they do have to turn it in to Homeland Security .

    Jason: That sounds very interesting, but it appears you may have posted on the wrong blog. Nevertheless, you are welcome here anytime. :o)

  11. For me, the primary issues are education and the war.

    Abortion is important to me too, but I have trouble believing politicians really plan to change anything there. Instead, I participate in grass roots efforts to educate young people.

    Marcus Goodyear: I appreciate your feedback. The war and education are both very important issues. Still, I won’t back down from the issue of abortion. The only people who can overthrow Roe vs. Wade are the judges of the Supreme Court — two to three of which are set to retire this coming presidential term. I applaud you for your heart to educate young people on the matter — it’s going to take all of us working together. Even so, the blood of 50 million innocent lives is strewn across our land. If Senator Obama becomes President, not only will he appoint pro-abortion justices; he will also present laws to use government backing for abortions and remove the rights of babies that are “accidentally” born during a partial birth abortion. With a democratic House and Senate, he will be unchecked. 50 million will only increase. And in a sense, there may be no hope of ending abortion if he gets into office.

    I don’t know… issues like education and the war don’t seem so big when I think of each of those 50 million lives, their unique identities, and what they were meant to add to our country.

    Right is right. And wrong is wrong. Killing innocent lives is wrong. There is nothing right about it.
