Election Day Musings

Goodmorning Election Day!

Can I make a quick suggestion as everyone is rolling out of bed and contemplating that trip to your nearby polling station?

If you feel uninformed, that’s okay…

You’d really have to quit your job to even ATTEMPT to keep up with everything in which our government presumes to involve itself.So if you don’t know… drumroll… don’t vote.

No judgment here, honest, I totally get it.

But (if you are going to the polls today) I would ask, why not vote for what you think will make our government simpler? Will make it less intrusive, less involved, less expansive?

Maybe over the years, we can (step by step) shrink it down to the point where understanding a single ballot at the beginning of November once every two years isn’t an 80 hr/wk full time year round profession.

Thomas Jefferson once wrote, “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield, and government to gain ground.”

President Ford echoed this sentiment during a joint session of Congress in 1974, “A government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take from you everything you have.”

What “bigness” of government will you support today? Less or more?

Happy Voting! 🙂
