Stop: Don’t vote Romney- Ron Paul, Santorum are Still in the Race

In the last few days I’ve seen a lot of comments to the effect that Romney is the only one left with a chance to win the race for the GOP nomination and that we should vote for him because no one else can win.  Upon doing some research I found out this is not necessarily the case and that other candidates still have a viable chance to win the delegates needed to compete.  Many of the delegates to be won are still out there for the others to pick up, because they are not winner takes all delegates and will be divied out to those who earned them.  In other words Romney may get a percentage, Paul may get a percentage, Gingrich may get a percentage and Santorum may get a percentage.  See The Real Delegate Score: Romney 93, Paul 82.  It seems that Ron Paul has as good a chance as any to pick those up.

In light of this new information I did a significant amount of research on Ron Paul and was impressed to say the least.  He’s been married to the same woman for over 55 years, has five children, 18 grandchildren, is a doctor, who is strongly pro-life, supports parents’ right to homeschool their children, and believes in the Constitution of the United States.  He is protestant, and stands up for what he believes in, in particular, smaller government and protection of our citizen and states rights.  He’s not as strong on support of Israel as I would like and has not come out strong on protection of marriage as between a man and a woman, but overall his views are very close to what I believe.

Though Santorum is Catholic and who I thought I would support before doing this research, I’m now leaning toward the protestant Paul.  Gingrich has too much personal history of moral failures for me to whole heartedly support.  None of these men are perfect choices, but Paul and Santorum are both good honest men, as far as I can tell.  I just believe, in order to have a clear conscience, that I can better vote for a man who believes closer to what I believe.  When it comes to a Morman, a Catholic, or a Protestant, I’m going to vote Protestant.  When it comes to a historically moral man verses and a historically immoral one, I’m going to vote for the moral one.  All of which leads me to vote for Ron Paul at this point.

I encourage you to go to Ron Paul’s website and look over the issues link.  http://www.ronpaul2012.com/ You can compare all their views on The 2012 candidates — What they’re saying… Also go to the Daily Paul website to get more information on Ron Paul.

I encourage you to prayerfully and carefully do your own research and vote for the man who most closely represents what you believe.  If you vote for Romney because you believe he is the last man standing and don’t have a clear conscience about it, I believe you will come to regret that decision.

I am a mother of eight wonderful children and five grandkids, of whom I am very proud. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, for the last ten years or so and am working on a final edit, now. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community around the world. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
