VOTER GUIDES: WHY WE ADDED A LIST OF ENDORSEMENTS

Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance

Winfrey and Senator Obama at Williams–Brice Stadium in Columbia, SC (December 9, 2007) (from Oprah Winfrey’s endorsement of Barack Obama – Wikipedia)

We just published our voter guides, VOTER GUIDES FOR CANDIDATES RUNNING FOR THE HOUSE OF DELEGATES IN PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY | Prince William-Manassas Family Alliance (familyallianceonline.org), and we want folks to notice that we have done something new. We have added a section that lists who has endorsed the candidates.

What can we as voters learn from these lists of endorsements? That is what this post is about.

There are basically two types of endorsements:

  • Endorsements by individuals.
  • Endorsements by organizations.

    In my opinion, most everyone needs a voter guide they can trust and read about similar to the one you support before they enter a voting booth.

    Most voters lack the time or interest to discern the records of an average of 25 people running for office in a community.

    Time is precious when working or raising a family time in life.

    Most people give up being interested after attempting to engage with to support or change politics because it is an almost impossible task to overcome and defeat an incumbent who has influence in jobs and has the vote advantage of the families, friends, and fussiness’s who depend on the incumbent for their livelihood. I learned this when I knocked doors for a candidate.

    Politicians know this and that is why they will never vote to support term limits, in my opinion, which provides greater opportunity and interest for candidates to overcome and win an election.

    The only incumbents that lose in local elections are the ones that are rarely caught taking kickbacks and many still get reelected even after being exposed.

    Sad. Even more sad when a community has few or no objective news sources or investigative reporters which are just about extinct now, in my opinion.

      Unfortunately, Conservative churches want nothing to do with politics. So, while their pastors may rant quite fervently against abortion, pornography, homosexuality, and the like, they don’t do anything to encourage their congregations to vote or to take an active role in politics. Sad!

      1. Tom,
        Sad in relation to this following verse meaning about the roles of Christians blessed to live in a Democrate Republic given Rights of free speech and discernment of the following verse mission of Jesus Christ.
