Next week many of us will be voting in a primary election. This is a golden opportunity to get the right people in place for the November election. So many people stay home in August and then complain about our choices in November, but August is where much of the damage occurs!
When I was in the legislature, I reminded myself that I would be judged at the end of my life by every thought, word, deed AND EVERY VOTE!
Here’s my advice:
Don’t vote for the lesser of two evils. All that does is guarantee someone evil will win. Vote for the long term, not just the election before us. It’s okay to cast a protest vote. If none of the candidates meet your standards, don’t be afraid to withhold your vote.
On the other hand, if you like a particular candidate, don’t just offer your vote. Offer real help in getting more votes. I can’t tell you how many times people offered to vote for me, which was appreciated, but it takes more than just one vote to win. It takes people standing at the polls, making phone calls, hosting events, placing yard signs and big signs and so much more! It’s not too late to get involved!

WHAT YOU CAN DO…
1.) Make sure you are ready to vote next week! Some ballot issues are the worst! Take the time to research what it really accomplishes. I always vote against tax increases and the governing body ends up finding ways to pay for the most important projects anyway. It will save you from feeling guilty for taking money out of your neighbors paychecks.
2.) Listen to our show today. We talk with Ron Calzone, head of Missouri First, who enlightens us about Constitutional laws, candidates and ideas for making our Country better. You can hear our show here:
3.) The Home Front newsletter and podcast continues. Your involvement to fund our ongoing efforts, research and equipment will make a difference. If you want to continue to support us in this effort, you can mail a check to this address:
