From Jun 13, 2012 to Jun 19, 2012 (included)
|So now that we are entering the final stretch of another campaign.
Some candidates will pull out all of their dirty tricks over the next few months in an effort to sway our decisions.
And then it will be up to us to decide.
Unfortunately many of us will not even bother.
Some will look at the polls and decide their candidate doesn’t have a chance so they will not bother to vote.
Others will think just the opposite and feel that their candidate is so far ahead that their vote is not necessary
What’s worse is that many of us will just enter the voting both and vote straight down our party line.
This has become common practice with many Americans.
It has also contributed to the current state of our nation as well as the condition of our states and cities.
On Election Day we will not only be deciding who will be guiding the country for the next four years but we will be deciding who will be making decisions closer to home.
On Staten Island we will be deciding who will represent us in the Assembly.
Decisions such as these will be being made all over the country.
But again many will not vote and others will be selecting candidates for no other reason than the fact that they represent “their party”
Some of these candidates couldn’t have been found with a search party prior to announcing their candidacy but now will be at every community event for photo ops.
This is the real problem facing America today.
We need to be more involved and voting is just a part of that responsibility.
We need to know who we are voting for and we are not going to get that information from advertisements, lawn signs or mailings.
Have you ever once gotten information from any candidates stating what promises they didn’t deliver on?
So on Election Day do us all a favor.
Take a little time and put some thought into what candidates you are selecting.
They will have a job for the next few years.
Let’s make sure that they will work to assure that we can say the same.
I have said it before and I will say it again “We need representatives not politicians” at every level of government.
On Election Day we can make a difference.
Let’s see if we will.
