“When the righteous increase, the people rejoice, but when the wicked rule, the people groan.” – Proverbs 29:2

If you want to change the culture, you can’t stay home and hope for the best. You need to go out and do your part to make that change happen.

This Tuesday, March 5th is Super Tuesday – the day when many states hold a primary election. States that will be holding elections this Tuesday include: Alabama, Alaska (GOP primary), Arkansas, California, Colorado, Iowa (Democratic Primary), Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia. In addition, American Samoa will be holding a Democratic caucus.

This isn’t just about who will be running for President. There are critical races from the top of the ticket to the very bottom. Recall that Senators and Congressman will be shaping national policy, but local legislators have a great deal to do with what happens in your community. Even school board elections can have an influence on issues like transgenderism in your local schools, parents rights, and adherence to critical race theory.

In other words, there is a lot at stake in this election. Primaries are our chance to set the direction for the general election. If you want to see certain candidates in office (or if you want to ensure that some candidates have no place in setting policy), it is just as important to vote in the primary as in the general election.

Just think about the issues that are at stake this year: immigration and the border, the future of the Supreme Court, parents rights, education, the safety of children, religious freedom, runaway inflation and a stagnant economy, global unrest, crime, and infrastructure … and that’s not even a complete list. 

This is why it’s important to vote your values in every election. You can’t find someone who has a defined position on every issue that might come up. But you can vote for the candidate who best reflects the values of the country you want to live in.

Many precincts have early voting, so if you can’t get out and vote on Super Tuesday, get out and vote before that day. But whatever you do, get out and vote for principle. That is the only way to put our nation back on the right path.
