Have Faith

Today is Election Day! A day to exercise out patriotic and civil duty, a day to remember the past while we decide the future.

It’s also a day to have some faith. But doesn’t mean staying at home and “having faith” things will all work out. Faith is putting action to your belief.

Here we are, election day, 2012.

It’s a day to have our faith tested. This does not mean staying home; it does not mean refusing to vote. Faith is not passive; it’s active.

Belief is an inward hope; faith is belief put into action. You believe the engineers designed and built a strong bridge. Faith is when you actually cross it.

And so we have faith that no matter who wins, that God’s purpose is served.

Think about it. If Obama hadn’t been elected, there would likely be no Tea Party. Obama was the great wake-up call to get millions of God-loving, Constitution-loving patriots off their couches and paying attention.

We’ve learned so much these last four years. That it’s not enough to have “our side” in office. That we have to be constantly vigilant—especially if our side is in office.

Last night my prayer wasn’t just—if it’s God will—that Romney will win but that we be given a chance to put into practice what we’ve learned these last four years.

So today, have faith. God didn’t wake us up so we could go back to sleep.

    For all the enthusiasm I hear from my party about saving endangered species, I wish there was a little more sympathy for the most endangered creature of all – the Democrat who represents a rural district. There aren’t many of us left, and the way things are going this year, our line may die out […]
  • Budget stalemate puts state’s financial reputation at risk June 21, 2017
    It takes a lot of time and dedication to build a good reputation but it takes only one bad choice to destroy it in an instant. As state treasurer, I carry this lesson with me every day as I work with other state officials and dedicated treasury staff to manage our state’s finances in a […]

    We have poll results out from our first Wire Poll, and some suggested topics to share for this fall’s first Re-Wire Policy Conference.

  • New Driving Data June 23, 2017
    The Federal Highway Administration has just released urban highway statistics for 2015, including the miles of roads and daily vehicle miles of driving by road type and “selected characteristics” for each urban area, including population, land area, freeway lane miles, and similar information. These data are quite useful as they allow interregional comparisons as well […]
  • The Transit Apocalypse June 22, 2017
    With declining ridership, growing costs, and increasing competition, the nation’s transit industry is on the verge of complete collapse. The trends leading to this collapse appear to be permanent, yet transit officials across the country are pretending they are only temporary. Instead of preparing for the collapse, they are simply seeking more subsidies. The Antiplanner […]
  • Response to Congestion Report June 21, 2017
    Two weeks ago, the Center of the American Experiment published a report by the Antiplanner showing that traffic congestion in Minneapolis-St. Paul was the deliberate result of the region’s Metropolitan Council’s plans to increase congestion in order to get more people to ride transit, walk, or bicycle. The Antiplanner quoted Met Council documents saying that […]
