Viewpoint: Respect the power of your vote
I had an inspirational friend state that they were pro-life and are strong in other issues of faith so they are voting for Scott Walker. I responded by saying that Scott Walker was not strong in character development. He is a political machine. I have seen him take away from the sick and elderly, children, women and middle class. He talks a lot but doesn’t walk in the same direction. They responded that it didn’t matter. I admire and look up to an individual who is strong in faith and character. But it dominated my thoughts.
I asked myself, when did I see this candidate address these issues? I have seen a lot of commercial false advertisements with false labeling of strong positive character development to increase his sales. If your vote is a stance, aim it where it’s most effective. Be flexible and aim your stance at a target that gets you closer to your goal. Keep both eyes open, avoid tunnel vision and take out the closest threat. Changing the spirit of the character is the first target. Respect the power of your vote and use it effectively. If this isn’t the key that unlocks your lock find the lock it does unlock.
Food for thought.
