Saw the following on my facebook page today from a "friend".
Dear Friends:

There are less than 7 Months until election day when the people will decide who will be the next President of the United States . The person elected will be the president of all Americans, not just the Liberals or the Conservatives. Yet, there is sadly often a spirit of contention and stress during this political season.

In the spirit of joining together as Americans, may I suggest the following bi-partisan method for peaceably showing our support for the candidate of our choice:

Between now and election day :

• If you will support Mitt Romney, please drive with your headlights ON during the day.
• If you support Barack Obama, please drive with your headlights OFF at night.

Together, we can make it happen.

Thank you

My response:

Romans 13: 1 Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. 2 Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.

Texas state law reads:

Sec. 547.302. DUTY TO DISPLAY LIGHTS.
(a) A vehicle shall display each lighted lamp and illuminating device required by this chapter to be on the vehicle:
(1) at nighttime; and
(2) when light is insufficient or atmospheric conditions are unfavorable so that a person or vehicle on the highway is not clearly discernible at a distance of 1,000 feet ahead.
(b) A signaling device, including a stoplamp or a turn signal lamp, shall be lighted as prescribed by this chapter.
(c) At least one lighted lamp shall be displayed on each side of the front of a motor vehicle.
(d) Not more than four of the following may be lighted at one time on the front of a motor vehicle:
(1) a headlamp required by this chapter; or
(2) a lamp, including an auxiliary lamp or spotlamp, that projects a beam with an intensity brighter than 300 candlepower.

And here is how "nighttime" is defined:
Sec. 541.401. MISCELLANEOUS TERMS.
In this subtitle:
...
(5) "Nighttime" means the period beginning one-half hour after sunset and ending one-half hour before sunrise.

Encouraging people to break the laws of the land and disrespect your God? Tsk tsk.


In response, I was told that this was "all in fun" and I should get off my "high horse". Hee. Playing troll is so much fun, and the only thing this person ever posts is stupid right-wing political "jokes", I'm just about ready to drop her from my list of "friends".
