Even the traitor has his place
Judas, the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor. Luke 6:16 (NASB)

Legislators (or lawmakers) are people who put in writing and create regulations, in particular those individuals who are part of a legislature. Legislators are as a rule politicians and are time and again elected by the people. In less than 14 days we would have voted for, elected and put into office those who will govern us and what new amendments we allowed to pass for the next few years.
In most cases the short term for disaster hopefully, will not cripple us for the long haul. For those that set policy, we are encouraged to vote along Party lines for them; however history has shown that this may not be the wisest thing to do.
For all of the good intentions that the leader of the Party may have, followers may have their own hidden agendas that don’t include us.
Pay close attention to them that support your communities, which are inclusive of health programs, educational frontiers, business development, social conditions and the destructive behaviors of those that police.
We are engaged in a hail storm of boulder size, that,, if not properly prepared we will get knocked out of the game.
Let us not fall asleep on this election. There is a historical component that neither Party is talking about and that is the Commissioner of Agriculture.
When we go vote, Vote for Thaddeus Hamilton to be the first Black elected to the position of Commissioner of Agriculture. Mr. Hamilton is more than qualified. He has the education, the experience and the commitment to do right by us. All he needs is for us to turn out and vote.
Vote NO on Amendment No. 3. This amendment will give too much authority to the Governor for appointing justices or judges; it’s a suspicious way of setting up our Supreme Court to be opaque.
Vote Yes on Amendment No. 1 Article X, Section 28. Water and land conservation.
Vote YES for the $800,000,000 funding to improve public school facilities.
Vote YES for the reauthorization of the Children’s Services Council of Broward County.
For all of our young readers and our recreational ‘pot’ smokers, if this constitutional Amendment will get you and your friends out to the polls, then by all means get out and vote.
Next week, we will offer our suggestions as to who we think will serve us best in the few years to come.
Out of Jesus’ 12 disciples, one was a traitor, from the greatest Leader ever not all would follow. If this is not an eye opener for us to think about when it comes to voting straight down the Party lines, maybe this election will.
The Lord said to Samuel, “Listen to the voice of the people in regard to all that they say to you, for they have not rejected you, but they have rejected Me from being king over them.” I Samuel 8:7
PLEASE GO VOTE!
