The author of a letter to the editor of QCOnline laments in the headline:
On Nov. 4, What’s A Poor Values Voter To Do?
The writer complains there is no one to vote for in Illinois for the “values voter” and that the IL GOP has “targeted Christian candidates for defeat in the primaries” as being “unelectable”.
So the writer announces he will not be voting for any “ungodly” Democrats or Republicans, because—Bible and its prophecies!
Which is always a problem, since the entire political class is “ungodly”, unless your god is $$$$.
But I feel his pain! So my solution is for the writer to abandon Illinois since there is no hope of it turning Red, and instead move to a Red state like Texas where his “values” will be honored and courted by the political class.
Here in Texas, at least in my area, Christian candidates are not “targeted”, they are elected, like my (too right wing for me) state senator. I still support and vote for her because she does a good job overall. Better too “right” than too “left” in my view.
So don’t play the martyr—put up or shut up. Waiting for a “godly” candidate to suddenly appear in Illinois is like waiting for The Second Coming.
