Election Day

“Choose a leader who will invest in building bridges, not walls. Books, not weapons. Morality, not corruption. Intellectualism and wisdom, not ignorance. Stability, not fear and terror. Peace, not chaos. Love, not hate. Convergence, not segregation. Tolerance, not discrimination. Fairness, not hypocrisy. Substance, not superficiality. Character, not immaturity. Transparency, not secrecy. Justice, not lawlessness. Environmental improvement and preservation, not destruction. Truth, not lies.”

Suzy Kassem

Election day is here.

Once every four years we are given a chance to participate in the election of our president. What a strange election campaign and selection of candidates it has been this year.

It does not feel we have much of a choice considering Suzy Kassem’s advice.

Not to start a diatribe here. It’s too late for that anyway.

Go out and vote using your conscience and best consideration for this planet.

May the best candidate win.

  1. I often wonder why voting is not compulsory in the U.S. Perhaps the people that didn’t make the effort to vote will be cursing today.

    (Voting is compulsory over the age of 18 in Australia. Mind you, one year I was so pissed off with the slanging matches between the contenders on the TV, I made an invalid vote and didn’t tick any box on the voting forms, before posting them in the ‘slot’) 🙂
