Now that the election is over I have a couple of observation/thoughts I wish to express.

The first of these is that as Bahá’ís we are encouraged to stay out of conflict and contention, which are the characteristics of our partisanship politics practiced in our current political system.   Being Bahá’í is about coming together, working together for the greater good of all humanity.

Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’í Faith also has told the Bahá’ís to be active and loyal to our government and here in the United States it means to vote our individual conscience when there is a local, state or national election and not to participate in the “which party is better, or this candidate is better” mudslinging that always seems to come up..
