I am a Christian conservative voter. I landed in the Republican Party because it most closely identified with my beliefs and values many years ago, and I am still involved in it because it continues to be the party that most closely identifies with my beliefs to this day.

To be a Christian and a Democrat hardly seems possible to some, but there is more than the "one issue" of abortion to being a Democrat.
As Christians, we certainly have an opportunity to play a role in this presidential-election process, as well is in politics overall. But, are Christians called to be involved in the political realm, and if so, what should that look like?
