Wouldn’t It Be Great?

-

Wouldn’t it be great if voters would start treating this presidential election as having the life and death importance that it has for our nation, instead of like it’s some junior high school popularity contest? Wouldn’t it be great if people looked at a candidate’s past performance, business success, voting record or other proof of competency, instead of just whether that person has some phony smarmy, bland, “harmless” personality? Wouldn’t it be great if voters quit voting for one person just to spite another? Wouldn’t it be great if people took Christ seriously in noticing the beam in their own eye, before they get all apoplexic about the splinters in the eyes of the candidates? Wouldn’t it be great if some folks quit living in the fairy tale world where third parties matter? Wouldn’t it be great if voters considered which candidate would provide the best future for their children and grandchildren, instead of whether they find them perfect enough to meet THEIR “high” moral standards? Wouldn’t it be great if everybody just grew up? © 2016

Wouldn't it be great if we DEMANDED the above from our News Media?

Instead, we take what they give us.
