This will be a relatively brief soapbox session. After all, by this point in the election cycle, you’re probably as worn out as I am by the endless political ads, the constant political shouting, and the general political bashing that’s taken place in the lead-up to Tuesday’s election. In the midst of all of this, let me leave you with a thought regarding voting for a better deal, since that’s what this election is about.
This election is about voting for people who will give you a better deal, however you define that. It’s about voting for those whom you feel have your best interests in mind and will legislate in a manner that represents those interests. It’s about voting for a better deal.
This election is about voting for officials who will uphold your better deal locally and nationally. It’s about voting for people who will enforce the better deals that they got for you. It’s about voting for a better deal.
This election, in more than 27 states, is also about voting for ballot measures that will create a better deal for you. Whether it’s to increase spending or decrease spending, impose new restrictions or lessen restrictions, it’s about voting for a better deal.
You certainly don’t have to vote — that’s your right. But just remember how many men and women have sacrificed their lives to give you the opportunity to vote for a better deal. Think about all of those people out there right now who are fighting for your right to choose to vote for a better deal. There’s a lot that’s gone into your right to vote for a better deal.
If you choose to not vote for a better deal, then please do the rest of us a favor and don’t complain about the deal you get.
Please, if you haven’t already done so, vote for a better deal.
