So I Feel The Need To Explain...

This post came up in conversation tonight and I realize it hints toward a particular political viewpoint.

That wasn't the intent. I just thought it was cute.

Just to be clear - I'm pretty moderate when it comes to politics. I agree with certain issues on both sides, and honestly haven't yet decided who I'm going to vote for. And as I've mentioned, my ultimate hope lies not in American partisan politics, but in Jesus Christ and His kingdom. I think it matters more how I live every day than how I vote in November.

But I'll do my research, watch debates, and head to the polls in a couple of months.

On that note, I'd like to find some unbiased online resources to guide my decision. But I don't know which ones to trust. Any suggestions?

I don't know what websites to watch, but I hear from trusted friends that the interview that Rick Warren did with Obama and McCain was really good. I haven't had a chance to watch it or see if it is on YouTube, but that might be a good place to start. Its where I plan on starting.

i just feel so torn about the whole thing, ya know?! it can be so frusterating yet i feel like this is such an important election.
