A Political Pickle

Son, in the past on days like this after a whopping Republican victory, I would have bragged and gloated for hours.  Now, I just wish someone (I don’t care which party) would get it right.  We shouldn’t have to keep going through these cycles.  One party takes control, screws it up, then the other party takes over, screws it up and so on and so on.

I think it comes down to the fact we really don’t know these people until they get elected and we see how they work with others.  We don’t really know their agenda until they get in office, because campaign promises have become a joke.  Campaigns are about popularity contests and how good you are at throwing others under the bus.  They are not based on merits or proven successes.

Do all Democrats want to give away the farm and support people who don’t deserve it?  Are all Republicans rich white people who don’t care about anything but money?  That type of thinking is what contributes to people voting for the wrong candidates.  Instead of voting party lines we need to elect the right people. How the heck do we do that though?  We know more about Snookie and Honey boo boo than anyone running for political positions.

Zach, your generation is going to have to figure this out if you ever expect to get our country back to the “UNITED” States of America.  Compassion, kindness, generosity, integrity and teamwork are what we need in our political leaders.  Let’s try to figure out who has these traits before election night two years from now.

Love you boy!

Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so? (Amos 3:3 NIV)
