are you undecided?

I don't get out much, so humor me. Remember, I work at home, and up until a few weeks ago, I was averaging close to 50 hours a week of work so I was definitely not getting out (not that I get out that much to begin with). I basically go to church, the gym (at 5 a.m., just want to remind you guys of that), grocery shopping, weekend car rides with Koda, nightly walks with Koda, that's about it, maybe a dinner out every once in awhile. Geesh, I really don't get out much, now that I list it like that.

Anyway, so I'm not out and about with people. I'm not chatting around the water cooler or having lunch in a noisy cafeteria with other employees or friends. So I don't have any other ways to know about what I'm about to ask you. 

Are you undecided about who to vote for in the presidential election next month? I'm just trying to figure out if there are people out there undecided. The press mentions it. The polls mention it.

Are you undecided? Its okay if you are. I'm just curious if there is anyone out there undecided.

I'm decided. I was decided earlier than later. I'm actually looking forward to it all being over, no matter what the outcome, though I do fear what an outcome may be.

But I do try to remember to pray daily this month for the upcoming election.

I really need to be more faithful about praying for our leaders.

They really do need our prayers.

Its a daunting job to be president or governor or senator or anyone in government.

Certainly something I would never want to do as I have said so many other times.

So anyway, just curious. Are you undecided? Believe you me, I'm just curious. I won't try to sway your vote either way.

Just vote. That's one of our biggest privileges as Americans.

That and freedom of speech and freedom of religion among so many others.

Thanks :)

Honestly I am undecided. My opinion is we have to bad choices. Which seems to be the new trend in presidential candidates in my opinion.

As a Canadian, I don't get to vote in US elections. I just "watch with interest."

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

My decision is made. I will be voting and always do. I will be glad when the election is over. Praying for our leaders is a good thing. They need all the help and guidance they can get.

Shelly said...

Without a doubt, I no who I am voting for!

Jeanie said...

No, I am not undecided and I will definitely be exercising my voting privlege.

Dana said...

I know who I'm voting for. :)

Have a wonderful day!

Linda B. said...

I've only decided- God help our leaders. Am looking forward to more debates and less political ads! We've also got constitutional amendment (defining marriage and voter id) ads bombarding us! (And those decisions could still be undecided if they end up in court)

I've definitely decided I'm thrilled with your 80%!!!

Hollie said...

Like you I've known for a long time who I'm voting for!! Just ready for it all to be over with!! Praying for the outcome!!

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I know who I am not voting for, but I'm not sure who I am voting for. I do intend to vote, so I've got some deciding and praying to do, don't I?

Tami said...

I'm still undecided. I've been voting a straight party line for over 30 years, but don't feel I can do that any more. Both parties are moving too far to the extremes. I'm researching other candidates - even though I know my vote will be pretty pointless if I go that route.

But I will feel morally good about my ballot choice and reserve the right to complain about whoever wins. :)

jack69 said...

Yeah, I have decided and will be voting for Mitt. I maentioned it on my blog already.
My dad wanted us to have a man fromt he business world. He was much in favor of George Romney. I trust my dad, and therefore hope some of the knowledge was inherited.

But as you say we all have the right and I am glad. I love this country for that.
Love from NC one swing state they say!!!
Of course I hope it swings to Mitt. hahahahahaah

decided here in southern Indiana :)

Rita said...

Already voted by mail. :)

Tamera Brose said...

We're sort of between a rock and a hard place. My husband is a dreaded white male and that makes him cannon fodder for one party. He's a dreaded non-essential government employee and that makes him cannon fodder for the other party. I'd really like him to keep his job after the election. I'm just not sure which way will do any good.

Robyn :) said...

I was undecided awhile back, but not anymore. I know who I am voting for. However, I have never ever voted for a winning candidate, but maybe this year will be different lol.

I decided to fast and pray about who to vote for. Right before that something turned me towards a certain candidate. I did fast and pray and still felt strongly that that candidate should get my vote. I am still open to having my mind changed, but I do not think it is going to happen, even as I hear arguments from both sides.

Mevely317 said...

I've been decided for a while now. Come to think of it, 4 years.
Was just waiting for my Mr. Right to come along (no pun intended - lol)!

Bobbi & Gracie said...

I know who I am voting for and last nights debate cemented my decision. Yep. I know.

Chatty Crone said...

I know who I am voting for. I prayed that he would do well in the debate. He did. I pray his VP nomination will do well and the last two debates. I feel that it makes a big difference.
At first I thought I'd vote for him just because I would not vote for the other - but after last night - I really did like him. He feels like Regan to me. And Regan made me feel safe. sandie

Lynda said...

I am decided - - Mitt! My Christian views would have me go for the one who is closer to my beliefs - - but those aside, we need someone who actually knows business and has worked in it!

SweetMarie said...

I've been decided and Mitt is our man! If people are undecided that mean someone isn't doing a good job or they wouldn't feel that way, so it's time to give someone else a try. :) That's what I've said to friends that are undecided. :)
I've prayed and prayed...scared for our country! Last night was awesome!

Marianne said...

I am totally decided and will be voting. My ward in Chicago has one of the highest turn-out rates in the entire state.

Sadly, too often Chicago politics are decided by dead people who vote "early and often." I suppose it gives me something to look forward to upon my demise. My vote will FINALLY be counted, right?

Blondee said...

I have been decided for a couple of years!! ;)


On the eggplant...have you ever used it to make french toast?? AMAZING!

Deanna said...

I decided our country needs God as part of its decision making process. So yes, I've decided early on. I prepare the prayers of the faithful for our Sunday liturgies and always include our leaders. They do need all of the guidance they can get!

You and I get out about the same!

Have A GREAT weekend!

Lynn Proctor said...

you are right--i need to pray about this stuff more :)

Debby@Just Breathe said...

You get out more than me!

What a great response to your question.

I know who I am voting for and as soon as my ballot comes in the mail I will be voting.

mare ball said...

I've known for awhile who I'm voting for. And I'm in agreement, we need to pray for the country. I vote for God above all...to intervene in the hearts of man. We're like the frog in the slowly heating water. Things get worse by degrees, and we tolerate everything, until the country is in the dumps and our freedoms are gone.

The Brown Recluse said...

Definitely not undecided...very decided, in fact. I feel like we don't have the best choices...again...but I am praying God's will for America.

Seriously Though said...

I'm undecided still. I'm leaning toward voting my conscious, which would not be for either of the two.

Intense Guy said...

I decided early on that we (the voters) have two really bad choices. 300,000,000 americans and this is the best we can do?

Rob-bear said...

Well, intense guy, what's the real issue: 300,000,000 Americans or two parties (more or less)? Not sure which is the actual problem.

Danielle L Zecher said...

I made my decision a long time ago. My husband was undecided up until about a week ago, though.

You're very right about getting out there to vote, regardless.
