The Best Candidate
As we approach this year’s midterm elections we will see quite a few candidates. Some will be adequate, some will be pitiful and very few, if any, will be great.
Most will spend a lot of money, donated by individuals and organizations trying to buy the influence of the empty suits who get elected. It will astound us at how much money is available to donate to political campaigns. Our local, state, and federal governments are spending money they don’t have in spite of the painful level of taxes that they confiscate from the tax payers, yet there will be billions of dollars available to slap lipstick on the pigs running for office.
The money is needed because the candidates don’t have the resumes that will impress the voters. The radio, TV, and print ads will be necessary to blow smoke and hang mirrors in front of us to make that lipstick wearing pig seem like the candidate we want to elect. The sad part of this is that it works. The low information voter will always vote for the candidate that puts on the best show.
I’m told by people I know, I certainly don’t know this from personal experience, that strippers use glitter to highlight certain parts of their bodies that giggle and bounce. That seems like a waste glitter, men who frequent those establishments are going to stare at them anyway even without the glitter.
Voters will not stare at or vote for the empty suit running for office because they have nothing to offer without the glitter. The low information voter only votes for the glitter.
The best candidate will be the one who has a legitimate resume filled with accomplishments and success in the real world.
The best candidate will be able to stand in front of the voters and tell them in a clear simple statement why they’re running for office. Their statements will include words like “I will do this” and I won’t do that. They’ll talk about taxes and how they must be lowered. They’ll talk about spending and how the spending must be controlled and limited.
They’ll gladly answer questions with very few words and with simple sentences. They will not look for wiggle room in their answers. They will be honest and straight forward.
They will make strong and bold statements that will inspire and motivate the voters. They will face the challenges and lead the way to solutions to our problems, and believe me we have problems that have to be solved.
Problem solving will cause some special interests to be disappointed, the solutions will require change. The special interests won’t sit back quietly and allow the best of leaders to ruin their control of the lipstick wearing pigs who do what they are told by the special interests.
Pioneers take the arrows, whoever are the best candidates they must be willing to face these challenges and be willing to stand in front of the voters who initially supported him or her and face their wrath. The solutions won’t be pretty, but they will be necessary, and they will be hard to swallow but they must be endured. The longer we wait to solve these problems the more painful and the more difficult the solutions will have to be.
If you doubt me look at Detroit and the problems they’re facing today. Several cities in California are on the road to Detroit. The United States Government is also on the same road, we must face the problems sooner rather than later.
The pigs wearing the lipstick can’t understand the problems let alone fix them. Identifying the problems, communicating them to the voters and the tax payers will be hard to do. Then they must identify the path to the solutions and identify the changes and sacrifices that will be required. This will require men and women with courage and integrity.
Elected empty suits have never demonstrated the strength of character or integrity to verbalize the problems, it’s unlikely they’ll stand tall and tell us how they will lead us and start facing reality.
The best candidates will take on the challenges and inspire us to suffer the short term pain and accept the change that will be necessary.
We choose in November, the pig wearing lipstick or the leader willing to face the challenge. I hope enough of us vote t
