Time To Think About Your Vote

The voting time is just around the corner. I urge everyone to make the effort to cast your vote ... Your future happiness and way of life may depend upon it.

You may know, if you've followed the news, that the control of the entire congress seems up for grabs. The Democrats are said, jokingly, I'm sure, to already have ordered the champagne and noise-makers and the Republicans are saying that it's probably "in the bag," for them. Actually, neither party really has a clue as to what will happen.

Let me give you my simple voting suggestion:

What is the worlds greatest challenge? I think it's the immediate and growing threat of terrorism. Oh sure, global warming "may" be a threat many years from now, but even that is debatable. There is NO debate about terrorism!

At no time in my lifetime have I seen anything, excepting WWII, (When I was a young boy) that could actually alter the way we live as Americans. The current threat is REAL and IMMEDIATE. It cannot be minimalized or "wished away."

So here's my voting hint:

Think about the terrorists: Think about Iran; Think about North Korea; Think about Hugo Chavez; Think about al-Qaeda; Think about potential suicide bombers; Think about the folks that would love to see us "cut & run" in Iraq.

Now, if it were possible for those people to vote in our election, who would they vote for????

You vote for the opposite candidate!

(Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out, does it!)

You don't think that's a little reactionary? Rather than basing your vote on what terrorists think, I offer this voting hint:

Think about what *you* believe would be the best way to minimize the threat of terrorism in the United States. Vote for the candidates that most represent your beliefs.

It's your country--make it so.

Sometimes you must be a little "reactionary," in order to make the point.

The point, which I don't think was missed, is for all intents and purposes, exactly what the previous writer said better than I:

"Think about what *you* believe would be the best way to minimize the threat of terrorism in the United States. Vote for the candidates that most represent your beliefs."

In my case, it would be the candidate that seems to be fighting hardest to repel threats against our citizens, be it terror, illegal immigration or economy ... and most likely the opposite candidate that a hypothetical terrorist would vote for ... Right?

Dont worry. I will definitely be thinking of those things when I cast my vote! :-)

If we live/act in fear, the terrorists have already won!

IMHO, I say vote for whom you think will improve foreign policy, that will reduce the number of people that hate us.
