I wake up every morning with some ponder on my mind. This morning it was about voting. Most of us have watched Dancing with the Stars or American Idol or one of the shows where the viewing audience is asked to vote for who they think is the best dancer or singer. IMO, it usually isn’t the best who wins. People vote for who they like, who looks best, who is the most popular and sometimes who’s the worst just to screw it up. It’s not really that important who wins these contests. It’s not a big deal but voting for the leader of the free world is pretty important.
There’s such an effort to get people out to vote for the presidential election. Do we really want someone who isn’t interested, out there picking someone for the most important job in the world? I was pondering that this morning. There are already too many people choosing a president using much of the same criteria they use to choose who is going to be the American Idol or who will get the mirror ball. Some make their selection based on who mom or dad voted for. Some couldn’t tell you what their candidate believes. We can’t change that but…..if a person isn’t really interested in voting, LEAVE THEM ALONE. I’d rather see only those who really care, selecting our next leader. Call me nuts.
