Make America Great Again!

All over town I see posters for a candidate whose slogan is “Make America Great Again”. Great slogan but how do we do this? What made us great in the first place?
The reality is that America was great, the greatest, most powerful nation on Earth because God has blessed us. No other reason! No political act or election. We became great despite our politicians and some very incompetent presidents.
How do we become great again? We need God’s blessing! We need to become a nation that God can bless. Do we really think that He will bless us if we continually promote abortion, attack his Church or spit in His face by destroying the family?
We need to elect at every level candidates of strong moral character. Will any of the presidential candidates at least turn us in the right direction? Is there any candidate of strong moral character?
Take a good look at those running and their campaigns. Do the negative attacks, smears and outright lies make you feel good about their character? What about the profanity used, their marital record or their treatment of women? Will God bless us if we elect a president who wins by appealing to our lowest nature and prejudices or dares to correct the Pope? Should we support such candidates? Should we elect candidate who consider children disposable, who support abortion up to birth or want to abandon the traditional family? Will God bless us if we elect a candidate who refuses to put the country ahead of his party, who refuses to compromise with others?
Think about who you will vote for?
