'Who's best suited to represent us?

Print Article

Evil is afoot. We are witnessing within the United States a rise of voices calling for mob verbal and physical attack on those disagreed with. Lies and distortions fill the air waves and news print. Your ears are tickled by those that in the end, really don't care about you but just want power.

As you head to the ballot box, a right granted you though the blood and sacrifice of the brave, consider these things in an unbiased manner. Does the person you plan to vote for represent the whole or the special interest of the few? Has this person actually accomplished goals they set before you as an incumbent or have done good works and led with distinction in private life before running for office? Do they talk more of me and I versus us? Do they speak in the positive with facts and truth or slander with untruth and falsehoods as determined by you and not the media?

We are bombarded with polls and stories that tell us we are divided. I say that we can agree that good is better than evil. Truth rises above lies. Verbal and physical violence is bad while dialoguing is good. Groups are generally good and mobs are bad. Yes?

In the end, it is not about you. It is about your town, school district, county, state, country. Who is best suited to represent the people? I pray for our country and you in your ballot decisions.
