Albert Mohler: A Choice of Parties, A Choice of Worldviews


After all the arguments, all the acrimony and all the issues that have been discussed, today the voters of the nation make their choices.

In contest after contest across the nation, voters face a choice between individual politicians. But it is also a contest between political parties.

But beyond that, it is a contest of ideas… it’s a battle of world views.

It’s an oft-repeated adage, but elections have consequences. Voters who might be disappointed with the outcome of an election have only themselves to blame if they didn’t vote in the election that has disappointed them. Yes, character matters, personality matters, ideas matter, world views matter and elections matter.

Make sure your vote is part of election day 2018 as the nation makes a decision today.

Hugh Hewitt: A Closing Argument Voters Can Feel


On the Friday before Election Day, the Labor Department issued a blockbuster of a jobs report:

Employers added a full 250,000 jobs to their payrolls; the unemployment held at 3.7 percent—a 49-year low.
This comes as year-to-year wages grew 3.1 percent: that’s the biggest gain for hourly wage-earners since 2009.
If President Obama had delivered this sort of jobs report the Friday before the 2010 midterms, every elite outlet would have given it non-stop coverage through Election Day.

But … today … the last thing we’d expect is fair coverage of an economy driven by legislation passed by a GOP Congressional majority and a Trump White House.

If voters needed one more reason to return those GOP majorities to the House and Senate in January, that jobs report ought to be it.

It’s a closing argument, along with Brett Kavanaugh, that voters can feel in their pocketbook and in their hearts.

Today: It’s up you. Get out there and vote. Vote today.

Albert Mohler: Our Obligations to the City of Man


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.

Michael Medved: Vote for Collaboration Over Confrontation


Americans of every perspective say they’re disgusted by the polarization, pettiness and unbridled anger that have come to characterize our politics.

The great majority of us say we want more cooperation and civility, but there’s only one way to vote for those qualities on Tuesday. If the Democrats win control of the House of Representatives, they’ve promised aggressive new initiatives for impeachment and investigation, and I believe they’d keep those promises—with two more years of determined efforts to destroy the president.

Republicans, on the other hand, may not agree with Trump on everything, but they’re determined to work with him for a program of constructive reform. If we really do want a new era of growth and gains, rather than more grating gridlock, GOP victory is essential. Vote for collaboration over confrontation on November 6th.
