Do you feel the urgency and concern surrounding this election? So many do. It just feels like the stakes are high. And Ben Carson, who recently dropped out of the race--much to the dismay of his loyal supporters, says the stakes are indeed very high.
Carson said, “People of faith can make a difference, when you look at the number of evangelicals, 25 million who didn’t vote last time. And the margin of difference between the candidates, 5 million votes. You can see that it would have made the biggest difference. Last time was critical, but this time it’s life and death in terms of America as we know it," shares Western Journalism. "We absolutely must take this opportunity to make ourselves be felt.”
That's why Carson has become the national chairman of My Faith Votes. Carson shared, “Nothing is more important to me than my personal faith, and it is my faith that motivated me to be involved in the political process to begin with."
“I believe Christians in this country can easily determine the next president of the United States and all other national and local leaders, should they simply show up at the polls. When we do vote, We The People will once again solidify our commitment to the Judeo-Christian values upon which our nation was founded.”
What do you think of Carson's passion project and his point that not enough Christians have traditionally voted in the past? Do you agree? Disagree? Let us know how you feel in the Comments!
