Alveda King: Voter Turnoffs — Avoid Tricky Political Spin Traps

Often politicians make unenforceable promises that make people feel good. We applaud those promises from candidates we like, because they strike a feel good chord. On the other hand, we attack those seemingly impossible unfulfillable promises from candidates we don’t prefer, because we want them to lose so that our candidates can win. It’s all an emotional spin trap.

I’m not sure what took me so long, but during past elections I “wrote in” names for candidates because of personal, or philosophical reasons, I couldn’t stomach some who received nominations. This time around, I’m committed to voting for whoever is against the abortion agenda and Planned Parent  role in abortion on some level and who receives the nomination for the party who is most against abortion. I’m not going to choose the “lesser of two evils,” because at the end of the day who wants to vote for evil?

I’m just going to vote for the one most closely aligned to the position that human life of mothers and their babies is valuable from conception or fertilization until natural death (no abortion and no euthanasia for babies, poor, sick and infirm people); and that life and the liberty to be born is a human, moral and civil right.

And then according to Proverbs 3:5-8, I will trust God to work it out.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the LORD and turn away from evil. Then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones.” – Proverbs 3:5-8 NLT

Not voting is not an option. Too many people in the suffragette and race wars in the U.S. (including my dad Rev. AD King, my uncle, ML King, and yes, me) struggled, and some even died for the right to vote.

America needs healing… Beware of the spin games. Pray and vote for life because our generations are depending on deliverance.
