How to Vote

The following is not copyrighted and may be reproduced in any form and forwarded to anyone.

How should I vote?

I got my absentee ballot in the mail the other day. I recommend doing this to everyone because you can take your time, research and vote in the privacy of your own home. Just call the number on your voter I.D. card and request an absentee ballot. You can even order one on the internet in many places.

Okay, I have my ballot. Now how should I vote?

I used to rely a lot on voter guides such as those put out by the Christian Coalition. The problem with these guides is that they are often incomplete and many Republican candidates know how to answer the questions to court Christian conservatives even though their voting record doesn’t match the voter guide. I want to know how politicians will vote on the issues. I already know how skillful they are at lying. I never know how to vote on judges. I knew that the Florida Supreme Court is pro-euthanasia and pro-abortion because it is filled with Lawton Chiles appointees. The problem is that I can never remember their names when I get to the voting booth. Florida has periodic retention elections for Supreme Court and Appellate Court Justices. But judges won’t fill out voter guides or answer questions on potential cases because it is a violation of the principle of unbiased jurisprudence to announce their stance to the public.

So how should I vote on a judge?

The answer is simple. Use the world-wide-web to research candidates you are unsure of. With each election cycle the abilities of search engines are getting more specific in finding quick information on candidates. Just type in the name of a candidate, their office and the name of an issue that is important to you. For instance, I wanted to know how to vote on whether Justices R. Fred Lewis and Peggy A. Quince should be retained. So I typed “R. Fred Lewis Florida Supreme Court pro-life” in Altavista.com and immediately found a good article on these justices.

These are pro-abortion, pro-euthanasia justices that should not retained.

Peggy A. Quince and Harry Lee Anstead are also anti-life. I found out that the only pro-life justice is Charles Wells. These judges have been retained for many years mainly because the conservative voting base of Florida just doesn’t see the importance of getting rid of judicial activists who strike down laws that are the will of the people.

I plead guilty to being part of the problem in not even knowing the names of all these judges and how they stand on pro-life issues. Today I remedied that. I also found out information on Appellate Court Justices and even the district school board candidates. Most people don’t know anything about local candidates because these campaigns have less money and the media doesn’t give a lot of coverage. A lot of people leave these choices blank. That is a huge problem because as someone once said, “All politics is local.” If you have your absentee ballot and a few minutes to search the Internet, you can become part of the solution.

Your comments are welcome!

Thank you. I am at a lost also on what the justices believe on the issues you have written about.

Governor Jeb Bush, has made two appointments to the Florida Supreme Court. Justices Raoul Cantero and Kenneth Bell. Both are pro-life. Cantero is catholic and Bell is an elder in the Presbyterian Church in America.

Thanks so much - this is exactly the information I was looking for (how the Justice's vote on issues) when I found your message. You have been a great help to me.

This is very helpful information, many of us experience this same frustration, especially at the local level where our votes matter the most. Your suggestions inspired me to be even more diligent in the research I do before every election!
I hope many follow your example, we all should! The Internet has given us a powerful research tool.

Frank Schaeffer Will You Please Shut Up! (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 200 pages

A Reasonable Response to Christian Postmodernism

Includes a response to the book Christian Jihad by Colonel V. Doner

The title of this book is a misnomer. In reality, I am not trying to get anyone to shut up, but rather to provoke a discussion. This book is a warning about the philosophy of “Christian postmodernism” and the threat that it poses not only to Christian orthodoxy, but to the peace and prosperity our culture as well. The purpose is to equip the reader with some basic principles that can be used to refute their arguments.

Part 1 is a response to some of the recent writings by Frank Schaeffer, the son of the late Francis Schaeffer. This was originally written as a defense against Frank’s attacks on pro-life street activism – a movement that his father helped bring into being through his books, A Christian Manifesto, How Should We Then Live? and Whatever Happened to the Human Race? These works have impacted literally hundreds of thousands of Christian activists.

Part 2 is a response to Colonel Doner and his book, Christian Jihad: Neo-Fundamentalists and the Polarization of America. Doner was one of the key architects of the Christian Right that emerged in the 1980s, who now represents the disillusionment and defection many Christian activists experienced in the 1990s and 2000s. There is still great hope for America to be reformed according to biblical principles. As a new generation is emerging, it is important to recognize the mistakes that Christian activists have made in the past even while holding to a vision for the future.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Running time: 85 minutes

Packaged in a double DVD case with the updated The Abortion Matrix DVD.

The United States of America 2.0: The Great Reset (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 40 pages of dynamite!

Revival, Resistance, Reformation, Revolution
An Introduction to the Doctrines of Interposition and Nullification

In 1776, a short time after the Declaration of Independence was adopted, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin were assigned to design an official seal for the United States of America. Their proposed motto was Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God. America owes its existence to centuries of Christian political philosophy. Our nation provided a model for liberty copied by nations the world over.

By the 21st century, we need a “Puritan Storm” to sweep away the Hegelian notion that the state is “God walking on earth.” We need revival and reformation in full force to vanquish the problems that plague us as a nation — from government controlled healthcare — to abortion on demand — to same sex “marriage.” This booklet gives a primer on our founders’ Christian idea of government and examines how the doctrine of nullification was woven into the Constitution as a safeguard against federal tyranny. It concludes with the history and theology of civil resistance. A Second American Revolution is coming with the Word of God growing mightily and prevailing! (Acts 19:20).
