When all else fails, read the Bible. Psalm 97:10 "The Lord loves those who hate evil;he guards the lives of his faithful;he rescues them from the hand of the wicked. Light dawns for the righteous, and joy for the upright of heart. Rejoice in the Lord oh you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name."
Now, when all is said and done, that is where we have to look for our election advice. These are, indeed, the times that try men's (and women's ) souls. When we see that almost half our nation appears to be willing to vote for a man who is willing to sell his soul for a billion dollars (okay, the price was high anyway), its pretty frightenting.
