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.

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

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

Running Time: 145 minutes

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.
