Share your thoughts on York Daily Record/Sunday News election poll

The York Daily Record/Sunday News election poll included several questions about state issues. Here’s a place where we can discuss them.

We’ll have some charts in Sunday’s paper. Here’s some info on each of the topics.

Pennsylvania’s voter ID law. Under the law, signed by Gov. Tom Corbett in March, voters are required to show an acceptable photo ID when voting. The change was scheduled to go into effect for this election.

But earlier this month, a Commonwealth Court judge decided to delay full implementation — so now poll workers will ask for your ID, but you aren’t required to show one.

In our election poll, the majority of respondents favored the law. What do you think?

Marcellus shale. The state’s impact fee on natural gas drilling, which was approved in February, has generated more than $204 million in revenue, Gov. Tom Corbett and other officials announced earlier this month.

In our poll, a majority of respondents thought Marcellus shale should be further taxed and regulated. But it was close.

Do you think drilling is paying off for Pennsylvanians?

Privatizing state liquor stores. House Majority Leader Mike Turzai recently told reporters that he will make another push to sell the state stores in the 2013-14 session, as the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported.

Do you think he should?

How do you rate the quality of education in your public school district?

Public education received mixed grades in a survey taken for the Pennsylvania Business Council Education Foundation, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette recently reported.

Lawmakers have debated education funding and proposed charter school reforms.

Do you think schools need more money? And do you think parents need more choices?

And how do you rate Gov. Tom Corbett’s performance?

Democrats have been speculating about potential challengers for 2014. And the Philadelphia Inquirer recently reported that Corbett’s been a major issue in the current state attorney general’s race.

What’s one thing you’d like to see Corbett accomplish in the next two years?

  1. Dear Friends,

    With the 2012′ election upon us, here is something to ponder: Who Is On The Lord’s Side?

    What is the Lord’s side? Can we know FOR SURE? Is it even possible to know we are on the Lord’s side?

    Is the Lord Jesus Christ a Democrat, a Republican, or the ultimate INDEPENDENT?
    Can we know? Would the Holy Spirit tell us WHO is on the Lord’s side? Does He even care? Would He ever tell us NOT to VOTE? Is any one listening to the Lord? If so, who are they? Where are they? How will we know?

    This question: “Who Is On The Lord’s Side?”, is taken directly from the pages of the Bible, in Exodus 32:26. The people of God were worshiping a golden calf. Moses asked the question. As a result, about 3,000 people, who chose not to be on the Lord’s side; they died that day.

    Let’s go to the Lord in prayer, asking the Holy Spirit to lead us. He’s the same. He will never lead us where the Bible forbids us to go. We all have our Bible. Let’s sit before the Lord, with open hearts, open Bibles, and be willing to do whatever He says to us, regardless of the consequences. Remember, the Holy Spirit, who wrote the Bible: He will never lead us to disobey His Word.

    If anyone denies Jesus has come in the flesh (as the God-Man), 100% God and 100% man, He has not the Father. Test the Spirit’s to see if they are from God.

    I John 4:1-3 –1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; 3 and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh, is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.

    With our Bibles open to (Psalm 68:11), and our mind set above (Col. 3:1-3); we will know the way to take. God says, He will lead us (Psalm 32:8). However, He also tells us to not be like a mule (donkey) in Psalm 32:9, that is stubborn, and can only be led about with a “bit & bridle.” The donkey. Hmmmm! Interesting! Doesn’t one of the political parties use the donkey as its mascot? I can’t recall at the moment. Does anyone know? Well, its clear in Psalm 32:9. God tells us, DON”T be like the donkey (mule).

    According to God’s Word, the Bible –God is PRO–Life –(Deuteronomy 30:19 – I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:) AND God is Pro–Traditional Marriage (between a man and a woman) — (Romans 1:26-27 –26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet). Whoever is on the Lord’s side –is on the side of Pro-Life & Pro-Traditional Marriage.
