We have a feeling we can guess who Chuck Norris and his wife Gena are going to vote for on Election Day!
The couple recorded a video begging their fellow Evangelical Christians to get out and vote in the polls in an effort to prevent Barack Obama from taking home the 2012 presidential election. Gena quoted a report that claims 30 million Evangelical Christians did not vote during the 2008 election and implies that, had they, they could have swayed the 10 million votes that Obama won by. Watch the video here:
"We are here to talk about a growing concern we all share," Norris says in the above video. "If we look to history, our great country and freedom are under attack. We're at a tipping point and quite possibly our country as we know it will be lost forever if we don't change the course our country is headed."
He continues, "We know you love your family and your freedom as much as Gena and I do, and it because of that we can no longer sit quietly or stand on the sidelines and watch our country go the way of socialism or something much worse."
Norris and his wife then went on to quote 18th century philosopher Edmund Burke and former president Ronald Reagan in an attempt to sway viewers to vote against Obama.
"As Edmund Burke said, all that is necessary for the client of evil is that good men and women do nothing," Norris says. "Our great president Ronald Reagan said, freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction."
Gena adds, "President Reagan went on to say that you and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this last best hope for man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness."
It is interesting that neither Chuck nor Gena ever say that they want Evangelical Christians to vote for Mitt Romney, but only that they want them to vote against Obama. Their attack was at least a bit less awkward than Clint Eastwood yelling at that chair, though.
