My vote and a bit more

Thus far I personally have logged eleven reasons why not to vote for Obama on my Twitter page.  I think that list will grow.  It's not that I don't like him personally.  I don't think I'll ever get to know him on a personal basis to make that judgment call.  If I ever get a chance to meet him, I would love to spend a few moments to show him from the Bible how he can know that the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross for his sins, and how he can have a home in heaven when he dies.  In fact, I would really be delighted at that.  It would be my pleasure.  But I don't like his record as President, nor the Democratic platform (which took God out only to insert Him in later after a sassy and pretentious parliamentary vote).

Gen. 35:1-5 Jacob returns to Bethel

1 And God said unto Jacob, Arise, go up to Bethel, and dwell there: and make there an altar unto God, that appeared unto thee when thou fleddest from the face of Esau thy brother.

3 And let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.
4 And they gave unto Jacob all the strange gods which were in their hand, and all their earrings which were in their ears; and Jacob hid them under the oak which was by Shechem.
5 And they journeyed: and the terror of God was upon the cities that were round about them, and they did not pursue after the sons of Jacob.
