Where do you stand this Election?
This year Americans have an important decision to make; the election of a President. We are at a crossroads… continue moving forward or change course completely and head in the opposite direction. Regardless of your political views, voting is paramount to preserving our way of life. Your vote means more than ever as the fate of the world and our very freedom depend on it.
There is a lot of misleading information and fear-based advertising geared to confuse the American voter as well as international community. However, there is truth underneath all the rhetoric when we really listen to the candidates and look at the facts. Facts don’t lie; interpretation does because it’s subjective and based upon individual viewpoints, beliefs and feelings. The dangerous part is that emotions are fickle and not logic based. They blind us to the facts of a situation and cause distraction from solutions to real problems. However you feel about the state of our country, or the issues we face, one thing is for certain; we are all in this together. And, we all need one another to prosper and thrive. Rich, poor, young, elderly, disabled, in-firmed Black, White, Latino, Hispanic, Asian, Indian, women and men.
The world looks to the United States for stability and support. There is no room for error or distraction by personal or corporate agenda’s. The planet needs our cooperation and respect of its natural resources. We are the pillar of democracy for the world and even though we appear politically divided, we must remain united as a nation; regardless of what political party we belong to.
So what does all this mean? It means, we must put aside fear, hatred, ignorance, and greed in order to do what is best for the country as a whole. It means, that we each play an important role in our countries future and thus the future our children will inherent. Exercising our right to vote is one of those activities that fulfill our civil obligations. It means that each person must take responsibility for their actions and hold themselves accountable for the choices they make. It also means that we must hold our elected officials accountable for the actions they take and ensure they represent the best interests of America as a whole!
We are each powerful instruments for change and we must use our individual power to unite as One in order to ensure domestic equality and freedom as well as maintain international peace and prosperity. Take a step back and evaluate the needs of your community, state, and country? What are the needs of the all citizens and of all people in the world? Safety, security, food, shelter, healthcare, education, clean water, and acceptance. What are the needs of this planet we call home? How can we best meet these needs?
Vote for the candidates that will best serve everyone. The country and world need your support.
