Asian Americans represent 4-6% of our nation. In many states, the election shows a dead heat or are within the statistical margin for error.
In Asian Fortune magazine, the October issue focused on the upcoming election. Asian Americans are 51% independent, not having an alliance to either of the two major political parties. or even identifying with the U. S. party system. Sadly, we have one of the lowest turnouts of all voter demographics.
We need to listen to this wonderful message by David Jeremiah, and vote our values — our beliefs, our convictions.
If you haven’t already done so in early voting or absentee ballot, and you are an eligible-to-vote American, please accept that privilege and responsibility.
Take some time to study the various candidates, not just for President and Vice President, but for your justices, local school board, soil commissioner, tax collectors, etc. Read the various amendments and take a stand.
Asian Americans, like many Americans, are concerned about the economy, education, healthcare. The future of our nation will be decided on November 6. So please go out and vote. Lines may be long, it may be inconvenient, but life is not always about conveniences.
Are you concerned about the economy? About what happened in Libya? Our support of Israel? Education? Abortion? Take time to study about what each candidate says and his track record. Pray for wisdom and for God’s mercy on our nation in the years to come.
2 Chronicles 7:14
New International Version (NIV)
” if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
You may only be one person, but if each person who thinks that way will go out and vote, then your vote may decide the election!
What about you? Will you vote your values despite the inconveniences?
