Well, here we are, on the eve of the election.
I don’t know about you, but I’m plum near ready to wave the white flag and just surrender.
I can’t take the negativity any longer!
We have seen, unprecedentedly, the worst of humanity.
I’ve seen people on my Facebook newsfeed proclaim, “unfriend me if you’re voting for Trump, because I’m not friends with bigots.” I’ve listened to podcasts where the hosts berate their Trump-supporting listeners, calling them “racist/homophobic products of incest.”
I’ve seen people on Instagram proclaiming that Hillary’s supporters are actually the “basket of deplorables,” in love with pantsuits and okay with killing babies.
The lowness of humanity has been rampant, on display, and it’s all about to end, come tomorrow night.
I’m not here to tell you who you should or shouldn’t vote for. That’s up to you, and I hope you will prayerfully consider your choice.
But, walking away from this election season, I have learned a few things.
#1. Honesty is always the best policy.
Doesn’t matter if it’s about your homework, about your whereabouts on Friday night, about why you want to bail on a get together, about the state of your recovery or sobriety…the truth matters. And it always comes out.
#2. What you eat in private, you wear in public
OK, so that’s the saying we’ve all heard…but it applies to, well, a lot of this election. *cough cough* The Clinton Foundation and their pay-for-play scandal. Her deleted emails. The Trump Access Hollywood Tapes…
And speaking of which
#3. Mind what comes out of your mouth.
Donald Trump, I’m lookin’ at you.
But no really.
Eph 4:29 Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up.
#4. What you put out on the Internet can and will exist forever.
Remember how we all were afraid of this when Facebook first came out? Yeah, well it turned out to be true. Thank you, Wikileaks. Hillary, if you’re going to do some shady communication, it will sooner or later come to light.
Luke 12:3 “…what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.”
#5. Never Underestimate the Power of a Good Slogan
After all of the debates, all of my friends, regardless of political party association, walked away going, “All I can think about is, ‘Make America Great Again.’”
But above all…
#6. Don’t be a Weiner
This is for both The Donald and Hillz. They both demonstrated some pretty vile and just downright inexcusable behavior. More than be role models of what to be, they’re role models of what not to be.
#7 If all else fails, Beyonce.
Hillary, if you win tomorrow, Beyonce better be getting one hell of an Edible Arrangement on Wednesday.
And that’s all I’m going to say about that.
Now go vote!
