Is it any wonder that we have a major problem with sex trafficking in America? We have a candidate that is using sex in his advertising and is totally demoralizing to women! Do we have to sexualize everything?  Even down to the office of the President of the United States?

This is not about being a Democrat or a Republican this is about standing up for the right of women.  Now we’re seeing an ad that wants young first-time voters to imagine that pulling the lever is like having sex with that candidate. What makes it even worse is that it is endorsed by his campaign! My first time ad is so disgusting!  Pro lifers respond to it. (more…)

Responsibility!

We are drawing very close to the election 2012.  We’ve all received the 5×7 glossy cards on our door from candidates, the big flyers stuck on our windshield or obnoxious facebook posts.  My heart tells me this is one of the most important elections of our time.  Issues that strike the very core of a believer’s being are being impacted. For our family that would be their stand on abortion, whether they will stand behind Israel, and other general conservative issues.

There have been 12 Presidential elections that were decided by less than a 1% margin; meaning if less than 1% of the voters in certain states had changed their mind to the other candidate the outcome of the entire election would have been different.

I do believe that God will hold us responsible for the freedoms He has given us. Many countries do not have the privilege of voting like we do. Some countries are totally run by a dictator so they have no elections.

With the advertising across our TV and the internet it makes it difficult to know the truth about the candidate.  That’s why it is important to do your own research about them.

Think of Adolf Hitler and his rise to power after World War I.   Hitler had a great ability as a public speaker and it aided his rise in his political party. Germany was on the fringe of recovering from World War I, and their economy was terrible. Hitler promised the German people if he were elected he would turn their economy around. The people of Germany did not do much research on Hitler, or they would have learned that he was against the Jews, against democracy, and was for a dictatorship. He was elected into power and the rest is a sad history. If only the people would have done their homework, they probably would not have elected this evil man as their leader.

There are some areas that I take a stand on and they are very important to me.  I know both of the Presidential candidates stand on these issues. It is not about Republican or Democrat but it is about the candidates lining up with what you believe in.  It is important to vote.  That right may be taken away from us one day.

Sex Trafficking in America

“Imagine you are a 13-year old girl. You do normal 13-year-old girl things: go to school, hang out with friends, fight with your mom. Then one day you meet an older guy who promises to shower you with gifts and help you fulfill your dreams in the big city. You trust him and run away from your family and friends to a strange place, and he starts telling you need to start working, need to make money so you can be happy together. Before you know it you are sucked into the world of forced prostitution and sex trafficking. All your money goes to your pimp, whom you thought loved you, so there is no escape, no way to get back the normal 13-year-old life you left behind.” (more…)

Human trafficking is a global problem; Considered the world’s fastest growing criminal enterprise. ’09 U.S. Dept.of State estimates that 50,000 people are trafficked into the US annually.

When a friend’s blog post was, I hate traffic I realized there are many other people that God is using to start spreading the word against human trafficking!

We can no longer keep our eyes closed to the human trafficking problem in America. (more…)
