The time is coming soon for the next election in deciding who will become America’s next commander-in-chief. As the time draws closer, a similar question is on everyone’s mind. Who will I vote for?

For many this question is not very difficult. They have watched the candidates closely and rallied behind who they believe holds to their code and their ideals of who should be the next President of the United States of America.

For others the answer is not yet all there as they watch to see what our candidates will do next. For TN, time is nearly up. With the election on March 1, the time to make a decision has come.

The right to vote is not a requirement, and many people will make the decision to not vote in this election or the final election. The right to vote is a privilege, and one of the most basic rights that we Americans have been granted.

A wise man once said, “If you don’t vote you have no right to complain about the leadership of this country.”

He was right if we are not willing to do our part to elect God loving and fearing officials for our country then we have no business moaning about the state our country is in. Change comes when people stand up for their beliefs and seek change.

This upcoming election is far too important to ignore. I cannot tell you who is the best candidate for America–perhaps only time will tell. But hope for any candidate will not materialize unless we are willing to voice our thoughts.

Any Tennessee voter that has faith in even one of the upcoming candidates should vote on Tuesday, March 1. Educate yourself now and learn about these candidates. This time next year one of these men or women will represent our country’s history, morals, and faith.
