Hey. There’s a really important election coming up. And maybe you’ve heard... that “your vote matters.”
But it actually really does. There are local issues that need your vote. First, I’d like to urge you to Google “my ballot.” Enter your address, and you’ll find everything that’s on the ballot for you this year.
This general election is an important one for LIFE. There’s a lot on the line. As a Pro-Life voter, the presidential election hardly has a winner. No matter who you choose to vote for—if you can in good conscience vote for anyone—compromises have to be made.
The “Pro-Life” (in terms of abortion) candidate is also a death penalty enthusiast; the other is the biggest abortion advocate in the U.S. history of presidential candidates, is also in favor of the death penalty, and has views on euthanasia nothing short of enigmatic. By voting for either candidate in this election, you are voting for an ideology that rejects the value of a certain populace’s life—so much so, that their response is death.
And tbh I don’t care who you vote for in the presidential election. I’m going nowhere near that dumpster fire.
But as a Nebraska voter, you have the opportunity to vote for really important legislation that respects life. Because the language is a bit confusing, this is something I think needs to be addressed. Nebraska will be voting on Referendum No. 426 regarding the death penalty. The Nebraska Death Penalty Repeal Veto Referendum, also known as Referendum No. 426, is on the November 8, 2016 ballot in Nebraska as a veto referendum. The measure asks voters whether they want to repeal or retain a law that eliminated the death penalty in Nebraska in 2015. Please look at the image here to better understand how to vote on Referendum No. 426.
And then remember to check “retain” on November 8.
While the moral dilemma in checking “repeal” ends when you put down your pen, the responsibility in your vote transfers to a person now responsible for executing your decision.
Propagating the lethal condemnation of any human is not just radical; it's demented.
Killing killers won’t bring back our victims.
