Now it is the voters turn

November 1, 2010

Now that all of the political ads have run. After all the pundits have prognosticated, and  all the polls have predicted, it is now time for the voter to have his/her say. The voters have to decide what is best for the country, the state, and the district. Neither of the major parties has all the answers. If any one of them did we would not be in the mess we are in now.  In fact the answers lie somewhere in between the the three big boys. There are reasonable people in most parties, but it is the outspoken who command the attention of voters.  Ignore them, for the represent all that is bad in political parties. Party loudmouths and their supporters will vote for corrupt and incompetence just to stay loyal to the party.  A stupid Democrat is a stupid Democrat why put him/her in office. A corrupt Republican is a corrupt Republican. Why choose him/her just because they have an (R) behind their name. When I walk into that booth on Tuesday, I am going to vote for the person who I feel has a vision that is closely inline with the way I think the country should be moving. Party affiliation is not an issue. I challenge all of you to do the same. Don’t ignore or support a candidate based on party alone. If you do you do so you may get that corrupt (R) or that incompetent (D) running things for the next few years or so.

    Regarding running for the BOE:

    Some people are attracted to the power and influence, and some people are attracted to the opportunity to make a difference in people’s lives. Some people set low standards for their performance in office and some people set high standards for their performance in office. It’s up to voters to discern the difference. I’m thankful we live in a country where we can decide.

    There’s nothing more important than public education. Although we have many inequities in our country, it is truly the “great leveler” and the prerequisite for a democratic way of life and economic security.

    Brains and talent lie evenly within all populations on this globe, and a good public educational system ensures no one is overlooked. With the advent of the Internet and the rise of technology, never has our world been so open to the utilization of human ingenuity and creativity. We can’t turn back the clock. We have to prepare our children for that future. A topnotch public education is the bedrock of that future.

    That’s why every vote is so important tomorrow.
