13 Jax PAX woke up early in order to do their civic duty to F3 Nation- post for a gloomy weekday beatdown at Anthill. It is Election Day 2018! As such, YHC decided to leave the beatdown up to the Jax PAX. Parts of the beatdown were determined by majority vote. Unfortunately for the PAX, they may not have had all the information available to them when they placed their votes. Once the ballots were cast, like in life, they had to deal with the consequences…

COT

We all have heard before, don’t vote for the letter next to the candidate’s name, vote on the issues. Vote on what is closest to your heart and conscious. There is no candidate that falls in line with all my morals or beliefs, but I have to make the tough choice of which one (belief or beliefs) that I feel is most important to me and my God, and vote towards that conscious. Couple other things to think about, these politicians, despite how many feel, at one point, I hope, they set out to serve their country. They got into politics in order to make a difference in this country. We should pray for them that God give them the wisdom to make the right choices, and the fortitude to withstand anything that may alter them off course. The other is that we are all in this together. No matter what happens, we are all in this together. YHC shared a brief story about the rabbi at the local synagogue who, during a memorial for the lives lost in Pittsburgh, not only listed the names of the departed in that tragedy, but then began listing the names of those killed in a South Carolina church, and those killed in the mosque in Quebec City. He mentioned to those in attendance that this was not a Jewish problem, or Christian problem or Muslim problem, but that this was OUR problem, and we need to work together if we will ever find a solution.
