I for one do not want to live under a king or dictator. I want to live in a republic, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

I include the controversial phrase “under God” because, to me, those words represent the ideals presented in the Ten Commandments. I doubt many would disagree when I say, “We are at our best when we obey the Ten Commandments.”

As we get ready to vote in the upcoming presidential election, let’s not mindlessly mouth the words in the Pledge of Allegiance, but think about what the words really mean.

Defend our Republic. Vote for the person that best follows the Commandments, and remember to love your neighbor as yourself. We are stronger together!
