"Duck Dynasty" star "Uncle Si" Robertson has shared the three things Christians should do when deciding which presidential candidate to vote for in the upcoming election

During a recent appearance on Fox & Friends, the outspoken reality star and US Army veteran said he wanted to vote for God to be president when asked to discuss the 2016 presidential election.

"It's impossible for him to lie. Number two, he's going to do what's right because he loves this United States of America, and...that's the truth-he was with us from the founding of this nation," he explained.

The Duck Commander duck call maker went on to suggest the American voter "vet" their candidates against those three ideals: "That's the standard-love the United States, do what's right and then stick with the truth."

Si also discussed his new book, "Si-Renity", which describes life for him and his Louisiana family after the "Duck Dynasty" series became a hit.

"A lot of people can't handle it," Si said of the fame that came along with the reality show. "God knew what he was doing, because if God gave me this fame when I was 25, I wouldn't be worth two cents. He gave it to me in my later years, so it was easy to handle it."

Si is not the only member of the Robertson family to discuss the role of believers in today's political climate. Last month, patriarch Phil Robertson, who, along with several members of his family has publicly endorsed GOP candidate Donald Trump, told voters to consider biblical principles before casting their votes.

"I am going to leave that up to you to cast your vote. I would say cast your vote for the one that we have a better chance to remain the republic that we are," Robertson said. "So, I would just simply say: You have political correctness on the one side. Biblical correctness on the other. I am on the biblically-correct side. Therefore, I would tiptoe through the tulips but you just have to vote your conscience ..."

The "Duck Commander" shared how the issue of abortion is close to his family's heart, as the Bible clearly issues the commandment, "Do not kill." He referenced how Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has vocally supported "women's rights" and abortion service provider Planned Parenthood in explaining why he won't vote for her.

"Remember, everything I do is vetted through the Bible. When God says 'don't murder,' I'm taking it for what He said. Therefore, don't kill your children in their womb. It's murder. So, don't murder," Robertson said.
