If you are following the news this political season at all you have seen many instances of someone telling voters, “Vote for me if you want your vote to count. If you vote for (insert your candidate here) your vote will be wasted because (insert your candidate here) cannot win.” That is just one of the many lies you will hear politicians playing the politics as usual game, using lies and half-truths and deception to get your vote.
I am not buying what they are trying to sell.
Whether you let the establishment of either major party or the news media (all news media) tell you who can win and therefore who you should or should not vote for is your choice. I hope you don’t fall for the lies they are telling either.
If anyone reads this and does decide to take their vote seriously, do their own research and vote for the candidate that most closely matches their values and beliefs then it will have been well worth my time.
The primaries are where we get to express our opinion by voting for the candidate of our choice. Until the votes are cast it is all just a lot of hot air (other words or phrases work well here too). Voters have the best chance to make changes during the primaries as there are more choices making it more likely you can find one to support enthusiastically and vote FOR instead of voting AGAINST or SETTLING for the lesser of two evils in the general election.
I have written before
I have written before about why Independents Do Not Decide Elections and why maybe you should not vote in Maybe You Shouldn’t Vote. I hope you are not a robot voter, low-information voter or single social issue voter as described in these previous posts. I hope if you do vote you will make yourself an educated and informed voter before you head to your polling place.
Fish lures are often shiny objects and when the fish take the bait it doesn’t end well for them.
Vote for the candidate that has the character, integrity (See Integrity Matters), experience (See Experience Matters), judgement and plans for the problems, issues and opportunities facing America in the years ahead, such as appointing Supreme Court Justices.
It is time to support the candidate you can really support and you would like to see leading our country. My vote counts regardless of the pundits and politicians telling me it doesn’t unless I vote for “their” candidate.
If your first choice candidate is no longer in the race I welcome and encourage you to keep reading and consider joining We The People supporting Dr. Ben Carson. We would love to have you!
If your candidate is still in the race and you are open to learning and new ideas that might surprise you, please keep reading.
I don’t presume my writing is persuasive enough to make you change your mind. However, if you do read the ideas and plans Dr. Carson has developed some of those might very well make you come to a new decision based on new information. So read at your own risk.
Dr. Ben Carson is my choice
I have done my research and Dr. Ben Carson is my choice. He is the first candidate I have been really excited about supporting this early in the process since Ronald Reagan. I will support him regardless of all the pundits ignoring him, telling him it can’t be done, other candidates lying to steal his votes in Iowa and now in South Carolina, and my vote is wasted if I vote for him because he “cannot win.” He has my support because I think he is the only candidate who has a realistic chance to bring unity to America again and is the only one willing to look at the problems America faces without the overriding concern of how fixing the problem will affect his re-election.
He IS the alternative to the status quo of politics as usual in America. He IS NOT a politician and has no plans to become one.
Are you tired of politics as usual?
If you are tired of politicians, both Republican and Democrats just “kicking the can down the road” past the next election instead of making the tough decisions needed to solve the problems facing America you should take a closer look at Dr. Ben Carson.
If you want the status quo of politics as usual to continue vote for a politician. If you are tired of politics as usual you do have an alternative this year and that alternative is Dr. Ben Carson. He is the conservative that can be trusted and will be accountable to We The People, and that is all of us, Republicans, Democrats, Tea Party, Socialists, Libertarians and Independents, and any others I might have missed. He will be beholden to no special interests or large donors as most others will be if they are elected. Dr. Carson stated this well in his closing remarks in the last debate. Watch at the link below.
I hope America can look back on this point in history one day and say “I am glad we did” instead of “I wish we had.”
My vote matters and I will be saying I am glad I did. I invite you to join me. In case my point has been missed,
YOUR vote matters too!
Use it wisely.
Dr. Ben Carson – Unfiltered
Take a look at Dr. Carson’s policies and plans below and decide for yourself. Don’t trust what you have heard through the filter of news media and other politicians. They have their own agenda.
Until next time…
