A Simple Vote

Stop Electing Idiots

If you are anything like me you are so sick of this election cycle and cannot wait for it to be over.I throw away every piece of propaganda that arrives in my mail and immediately turn the radio station if I hear a political ad.

The system has gotten beyond a little absurd, but it’s the best system we’ve got for now, so its important to participate.

PLEASE VOTE.

Please take a few minutes out of your life and show those that we elect into power that we are here, we are listening, and we are going to participate in our future.

Please talk to your neighbors and get them to vote.  Send a message through large numbers that we will not be dissuaded by misleading ads or new voting restrictions designed to keep you from voting.

OK, that was the nice political rant.  Here comes the not so nice part.

This system is clearly broken when the “best” two candidates that are presented to comes down the lesser of two evils.

That said, there is some evil that I simply cannot tolerate.

I am a registered Republican and always have been, but  I can barely even recognize my party any more, and for the life of me I cannot vote for Romney.

I cannot tolerate and even reward someone who will say whatever it is the person in front of them wants to hear at the time, true or not, and say the exact opposite thing the next day, all in the name of being elected.  Then went confronted with the lie only repeats it louder to scare more people into voting for him.  Only a man with no soul does that.

I am not stupid.   I refuse to vote for someone who treats Americans like we are stupid.

If you have to lie and cheat to get elected then your ideas suck.  Come up with better ideas and we will talk.

Returning to old ideas that have been proven failures is not the path I want to go down…again.

I am interested in a change for good both at home and around the world.  I am interested in harnessing the creativity and enginuity of our people toward solving real problems that will benefit both ourselves and the world around us.

I am no longer interested in spending Trillions of dollars for wars to control outdated resources half way around the world.

I am interested in providing better education and better healthcare to all those who need it.

I am no longer intersted in hearing how some republican senator can reclassify rape in a new way this week, or tell us how a woman can or can’t have a baby.

I am frustrated with the illusion of choice we are given with these two candidates, but I’m hoping that not returning to our past mistakes will keep us moving forward to a better tomorrow.

I can hope.

Sorry for the very political rant. I struggled with weather to put something like this in the email/blog, but I think its important and I encourage you to vote.  Vote for how you would like to be treated by those YOU elect into power.

I would love to hear what you think about this in the comments.

Ben…
