Our Election Process

Tomorrow is Election Day, and I believe our country is stressed. I know I am. We received our mail ballots, competed them, and delivered them to the county election office. Now we wait, and I suspect that wait will be longer than we all would like. I can only imagine some of the news in the coming days—glitches in counting, lost ballots, challenges, and surprises in outcomes.

It has been a long election season, and I feel many Americans are tired of our political systems and would like some profound change.  Here some suggestions off the top of my head; set spending limits and equalize the playing field.  Then we could move to Truth, a novel approach to letting us know the candidate and their positions. Another idea to consider is vetting the candidates to determine if they have the qualifications and demeanor for the office they seek. 

Now I’ve vented and would like to hear from others how we might improve selecting the right people to serve this wonderful country and its people. Now, go vote if you haven’t and say a prayer for a peaceful resolution of our differences.

…that’s 30 for today.

We’re Getting Close

Another Debate? Maybe yes, Maybe No

In twenty-five days, Americans will elect our next President. I fully expect we will witness unusual events in the coming days. This morning it was announced the next debate would be virtual.  Within minutes the incumbent announced he would not debate in front of a computer where he could be cut off. 

While politicians will do what they will do, we must promote voting, the most important duty as an American.  Many say my vote won’t matter; others say they can’t support either, and some have never voted.  I believe this year, it is more important than ever to exercise your right and vote your conscience.  

To borrow the line from a friend, “Pray, Think, Vote.”

…that’s 30 for today, w2hat do you think?
