I donít know about you but I am beginning to feel tired of the idle promises that come with each election. If they truly kept them all, our nation would be totally bankrupt. We are on the verge right now. Let us each think of what we can give for God and Country.


It is election time and politicians are seeking your vote.

Anything they think you want is the thing they will be apt to promote.


I promise you snow balls in the middle of June.

I promise there forever will be a full moon.


I promise warm weather throughout each winter day.

They will promise Heaven on Earth at least that’s what they say.


Keep this in mind if you want America to stay strong and brave.

There is only one promise that will inspire Old Glory to wave.


It is not a promise made by any President elect for their promise will fade.

The promise that will count will be the promise you made.


Promise to love your neighbor as you love yourself and your country that is free.

Do your part and remember your giving will go a long way to keeping our nation as strong as can be.


So vote with your heart but also your mind and remember to pray

For the strength and the long life of the U.S. of A.

I am beginning to feel tired of the idle promises that come with each election.

As we all should truly feel today; and it's about time we all do something about it.

Amen my friend...I believe in praying much before casting my vote...I also like to watch the news, read about the candidates, and do some heavy duty debating, but I always come back to prayer for my final decision...great write!

Absolutely!!! I wore the uniform, gave up some brain cells, but now I don't have any regrets or excuses, I volunteered: I vote and pray!!!
