Jobs/Economy- In reality this is an issue that affects every single one of us, we pay taxes to support those with out jobs, we collect some sort of unemployment or government assistance when we don't have a job, and some people just don't want a job and will try and leach the best they can, but regardless of where you stand you will benefit one way or another from a country with a strong economy and jobs.
Abortion-In reality this is an issue that will mostly affect only a select few. In a black and white world (let's just think about it this way for half a second) the only people affected by abortion are those parties involved. No matter if the rule is to allow it or not allow it. This should not be how we decide who our leader is.
National Security/Foreign Policy - Again, this affects every single one of us, espescially when our nation is threatened or attacked. IE-911, if you weren't affected or say you weren't you're full of it, AND how we handle those situations is very important.
Gay marriage - This only affects those that are either gay and want to be married/don't want to be married, and those like Aber who think he is gonna catch the coodies.....
I admit that Aber1's way of bringing his covenant to the world is not the best way to do it through Wordly eyes. However, it is his command given to him through God's word. He is still young and not refined but his ferver is there.
We are accused all the time of not seeing what is best for the Country, but I will say the same about a Culture that is blinded by wickeness that has become common practice.
The things we do to each other in disrespect is similar to bully on the playground. We as a Country in the last three generations never grew out of that elementary school yard.
