Who are you voting for?
Again I say, who are they?
Today more than ever we get to see the full, raw, unedited versions of our city, county, state, and nation’s leaders. And more than ever knowing who you are voting for is more important than whether they are in this party or that party. Whether they have an (I) or (R) or (D) seems to have less weight now than when we elected Reagan, Bush, Clinton, G.W., or Obama.
Today, knowing who you are voting for outweighs everything else. I have not heard much about the president lately. But I sure do hear quite a bit about the man named Donald John Trump.
So before you check the box with the (I) at the end of his name. Punch the chad with the (D) at the end of the name. Or ignore the woman with the (R) at the end of her name.
Look them up on Facebook.
Find them on twitter.
Check out their instagram. (And their children’s instagram.)
What is it full of?
What is on page 3 or 4 after you Google them?
What do you think about this person? Is this who you want to be your city council member? Is that what your Mayor looks like?
P. S. Are you voting for your candidate out of fear? Do you want other people voting out of fear? Do you want this nation to be in fear of you?
The people on the other side of the aisle have a pulse, thoughts and feelings just like you. Please get to know them before you fear them. You will be surprised by how many things you have in common.
