When I was younger voting was very important, you voted to make change and have a voice.
In this day of age, it seems to be overtaken by a lot of social media and bantering back and forth.
In my younger years you didn’t vote for a president who promised the world, you voted for a good Christian, who meant what they say and say what they mean.
One of the best years I recall of voting was when I voted for President Dwight Eisenhower. I voted for him because he was a man of his word and he was one of the first presidents from a military background. I was also previously in the air force, so I thought he had a lot of knowledge to benefit our county.
I remember in my youth voting was different than it is today. There weren’t riots like there is now, everyone voted for who they wanted and there was peace among fellow candidates.
I feel that computers have taken over too much of the experience of voting and the process to it. When I was younger you voted on a ballot and placed in a voting box and they were manually counted, now days you place your ballot in an electric computer box, no personal touch.

I don’t worry about them because god is in control and has a plan and will take care of all of us.
