The most important office, and the one which all of us can and should fill is that of private citizen. (Louis Brandeis, 20th century US supreme court justice)
Perhaps you never thought of yourself as holding an “important office” in your government, but the US democracy is “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” It is our responsibility to consider candidates carefully and vote in every election. Editor George Jean Nathan wrote, “Bad officials are elected by good citizens who don’t vote.” Study, ponder, pray for wisdom, and vote!
When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability. (Proverbs 28:2)
