Voting is not an option. It is our sacred honor.

Voting is not about politics. Voting is our sacred honor. This is an important and timely reminder for America.

The birth of our nation required the death of valiant and valuable human beings who sacrificed their lives so that the lives of others and the freedoms of others would be attained and maintained. As we guard and preserve the freedoms for which so many men and women have died, it is our duty, rather, it is our sacred honor to exercise our right to vote.

A way to honor the heroes who died to keep us free is to vote for policies presented by the candidates and not for the popularity of a politician. Voting shines as a pinnacle of our freedom as a nation and our freedom preservation. Therefore, we sincerely believe that voting is our sacred honor.

Our Founding Fathers risked everything for the sake of freedom and independence. In fact, the final sentence in the Declaration of Independence says, "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

President Ronald Reagan said, "This Nation was born when a band of men, the Founding Fathers, a group so unique we've never seen their like since, rose to such selfless heights. Lawyers, tradesmen, merchants, farmers, 56 men achieved security and standing in life, but valued freedom more. They pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. Sixteen of them gave their lives. Most gave their fortunes. All preserved their sacred honor."

In modern-day America, we face a different version of the same battle: to preserve and protect our freedoms. President Reagan also said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

How can we do that? What can we the people do today to protect our freedom? One important action we must do is to vote for men and women who will preserve and protect the Constitution. This election is Tuesday, November 6. You can vote early, vote absentee, or vote on Election Day itself. Our main point is simple: Just vote!

Here are 3 resources to help you vote:

This election, we ask you to do two things: Pray for our country and, out of your sacred honor, vote. When you vote, vote for the men and women whose policies most match with your values. We vote for freedom protection, life protection (pro-life, whole life), and wise financial preservation (lower taxes, more jobs, and better healthcare for all). We hope and pray that you will do likewise. Again, it is our sacred honor.

In God we still trust,
