People make decisions every minute, either conscious or subconscious. But our decisions are ours, and ours alone.
As Jesus Christ said in Mark 7:21-23, “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride [or arrogance], foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.”
Note that in this long list of sins, Jesus includes foolishness. Identifying foolishness as a sin may be a new concept for many. What is foolishness? I define it as doing something wrong when I should have known better or didn’t care to remember what was right. Being foolish is not as bad as being wicked, which is to know something is wrong and harmful and still do it anyway. But foolishness is still bad and still harmful and, to Jesus, still a sin. Here are other definitions of foolishness.
When it comes to voting, none of us should want to be foolish about God’s non-negotiable values, should we? Especially on these vital issues:
Innocent human beings. From conception, people are created in God’s image. This is why abortion, murder, manslaughter, suicide, and euthanasia are wrong. But this year, the Democrat legislators are pushing for nurses to torturously murder innocent preborn babies. Source
Sexual purity. God made sexual intimacy and sexual pleasure for marriage, to help a husband and wife bond and produce children. This is why all sexual pleasure outside of marriage – including homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality – is eventually harmful to perpetrators, children, and society. But the Democrat lawmakers are pushing yet another sexual indoctrination bill – this time to promote cross-dressing and sex-changes by eliminating gender distinctions in government school restrooms, showers, and sports teams.

Family protection. God has commanded fathers to protect their families from harm. This means, if required, lethal defense against a home invader. Criminals have guns and bullets. Do you also want to have both a gun and ammunition to defend yourself and your family, if needed? The Democrat politicians want to make it harder for fathers and mothers to buy ammunition and also want to eliminate your opportunity to have as many bullets in your gun as criminals can have in their guns. A raft of anti-gun – instead of anti-crime — bills attack the Second Amendment rights of responsible, safe individuals concerned about home defense and protecting their family. Source
The bad news is with a two-thirds supermajority of Democrats in both the California State Senate and the California State Assembly, these harmful bills are virtually guaranteed to pass. Of course, in a system of representative government, bad bills are the result of voters’ foolishness.
At this unprecedented time in history, lobbying the California Legislature won’t stop bad bills that the majority party, the Democrats, want to pass. Instead of fighting these short-term battles that we cannot win, moral citizens should focus on the root problem — foolish voters in a foolish society.
Each one of us should take every opportunity we can to educate others about logical cause-and-effect problems and solutions; family values for a child’s best interest; God’s values in the Bible; or whatever Truth standard hearers will accept. We must bring forth both logical and factual evidence, using resources like these:

Wallbuilders: Democrats & Republicans in their own words
For the record, Democrats have been in control of the California State Legislature for more than 50 years, with only three of those years when Republicans were in charge of the Assembly, the lower house. How do you like the laws of California? If you’re not sure, ask a general contractor, a small business owner, or a parent who’s left the government schools behind.

But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.
