Its easy to be cynical when politicians debate. Having been born not in these United States and having known a society which did not hold certain Rights to be unalienable, I can also be sentimental about freedom. I know that neither of these impulses, cynicism nor sentimentality, however, belong to a heart thrown open to the love and the mercies of God. So, I am searching for that stance, open to the heavens, standing accessible, giving consent as the governed to a greater Government, which while it may inform my vote in November, is not limited by the outcome of any earthly election.
