BOOR August/September: A Friendly Campaign Reminder

I'll be honest.  I'm not a huge fan of politics.

I do vote.  And I try to do so responsibly (by actually looking into each candidate for every race on my ballot.)  But by and large, the political process as it stands today turns me off.

I appreciated this election reminder from Kevin DeYoung: A Friendly Reminder as Campaign Season Gets into Full Swing.  Here's my favorite quote from his blog post: 

The President is not omnicausal either. When the President is on your team, be honest to admit that not every single good thing in the whole country is because of him. And when the President is on the opposite team, don't make it sound like every failure in society can be traced to his administration. There are 300 million people in this country. America is big. It's complex. None but God can trace the thread of cause of effect for every person. 

If you needed that reminder, you can read the whole article at the link above.
