Faith, finances and voting

By Gary Reese

The way we vote should reflect what we believe in.  

As Americans, we have been given the ballot box to express our values and desires for how the country is run.  The results of elections end up affecting so many aspects of our lives – our personal safety and well-being – as well as our national defense, our taxation, our ability to invest (with or without government intrusion), how we raise our families, our retirement, and more. 

It can be difficult to get information "straight from the horse's mouth" these days.  However, it is very important that we read and understand what the candidates and the parties they represent actually stand for – in their own words.

 Here are some helpful links to source information so that you can make informed decisions before the November election.  Please take time to be informed and to share with others.  

This link takes you to an unedited version of the 2016 Republican Party platform.  The 2020 Republican National Convention chose, because of meeting restrictions related to COVID, to adjourn without adopting a new platform until the 2024 Republican National Convention.  As a result, they chose to operate off of the 2016 platform shown above.

The best financial advice I can give you today is to participate in the November election as an informed citizen.
