On the first Tuesday of November every other year, Americans have the opportunity to exercise our voice—and our vote—in the ongoing American experiment of democracy.
Over the course of the last few years we’ve witnessed a heightening of the polarizing trends that have marked our electoral politics for the greater portion of the last two decades. The tone or the tension that marks our political discourse, I’m sure, turns off many voters.
So how should we respond on Election Day 2018?
As a Christian, my convictions are shaped by the great Christian theologian Augustine, who developed thought on our two citizenships—one to the City of God, one to the City of Man.
There is much more that could be said about this, but—given the fact that we live in a democracy—our minimum obligations to the City of Man are that we vote.
Make it a point to vote.
