Eight Reasons Conservatives Must Vote on November 7th

For months, we’ve been hearing about the sour mood of U.S, conservatives, with left-leaning activists and liberal commentators savoring (and promoting) the possibility that many of their opponents on the right will express their frustration by abandoning the GOP on November 7th. As Election Day approaches, however, the evidence accumulatesthat dissatisfied and restless Republicans have begun to come home, recoiling at the very real prospect of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House and second in line to the Presidency. Nevertheless, those of us who travel in conservative circles can still hear some grumbling and gnashing of teeth, accompanied by tired (and tiresome) arguments on behalf of desertion from the field of political battle.By now, we all know the lines: the Washington Republicans have become indistinguishable from Democrats (they’re all “Republicrats” and “Demicans”— yuck, yuck, yuck!); they need to be punished for overspending and failing to halt abortion, immigration, deficits and stem cell research; the GOP deserves blame for waging a cowardly, politically correct, inconclusive war in Iraq; Bush and his buddies are deliberately undermining our national sovereignty because they are secretly controlled by the Council on Foreign Relations, Skull and Bones, the Bohemian Grove, the Illuminati and other avatars of the New World Order; and the only way to get Republicans to develop backbone is to hurt them at the polls, sweeping away the current crop of panty-waists and globalists and replacing them with ideologically committed he-men who can reconnect with the American mainstream and then, in some future confrontation, win decisive victories against the newly energized Democrats.

Whatever the merits in these claims, most Americans who place themselves to the right of the Kerry-Pelosi-Howard Dean-George Soros Democrats are coming to realize that we can’t afford two years (or more) of leftist lunacy in Congress for the sake of some future (and far from certain) return to power. The current situation presents solid, undeniable reasons that this election amounts to a Very Big Deal and all conservatives of conscience must make a point of voting on November 7th.

Herewith, eight concrete reminders of why your participation counts:

  1. The current situation has presented solid reasons for recognizing that Republicans are no different from Democrats. But their dog and pony show is aimed at “the Religious Right.” The evidence has come in, and genuine conservatives have recognized that they have no party that supports their values, and only one party that says it supports their goals. And that party doesn’t support politically conservative goals. It has launched spending into orbit, created a national deficit, and waged a war for which there is no Constitutional validity. (No, American soldiers are NOT supposed to go fight for Iraqi freedom. They fight only for imminent threats to American freedom.)

    Actually, it’s time for Christians to wake up to some hard truths about this present world and its alienation from righteousness. We conquer this world only by Christ and not by any other means.

  2. The results of yesterday’s election confirm your premise. I agree with you 100% on your statement about changing the world only by Christ. Too many Christians get too worked up over all of the political rhetoric.

    I am hoping that the Republicans will return to their conservative values after this election and realize that the new Democrats that won did so by proclaiming a conservative agenda. I hope our President and his party will understand that the message that was sent to them wasn’t just about Iraq, but about disillusioned Americans, many of them conservative Christians who are fed up with out of control spending.

    This morning on my radio broadcast I tried to remind our listeners that “This world is not my home, I’m just passing through.” I guess the song writer was simply summing up our Lord’s position on what the real Kingdom truly is.

    P.S. I appreciate your informative blog. I have visited there several times and have never commented. This past Sunday I was preaching on 1 Timothy 5 where the Lord commands concerning elders who sin publicly that they should be rebuked before all so that others may fear. Of course I commented on Ted Haggard, but also on the Jacksonville, FL, Fiasco and the many scandals that have come out of HAC circles.
