Every Vote Counts Saturday, Feb 27 2016 

The Illinois primary election is fast approaching, and I’m not sure how I will vote. Unfortunately, I’m not excited about anyone in the race.

In my opinion, few of the 11 presidents who served in my lifetime, including the present one, were exceptional leaders. The public vote has spoken otherwise, however. Either they found these presidents more than acceptable or that they were the best candidates on the ballot.

Regardless, I accept the decision of the democracy, and I will vote every opportunity that I have. It is my privilege and obligation to step forward and note my choice. Voting is not a God-given right. Many countries around the world limit that opportunity.

It can be difficult to sift through the media noise surrounding the elections but important to do our best to listen, read, and discern for ourselves. May you use your power wisely, the elected make us proud, and God bless America.

What Say Ye? Thursday, Oct 25 2012 

Isn’t it interesting that so many people can be so sure of something and just as many people believe it is the complete opposite?

Issues like abortion, healthcare, taxes, foreign policies, employment, governmental responsibilities, and defense are hotly debated issues with defendants on both sides. And our presidential candidates ride opposing sides of many of these issues, which is why this race is neck to neck. We are voting policy as well as our national leader.

Voting is the least and easiest step to take toward a world you envision. Your voice is vital. Get into that booth and cast your vote. You don’t even have to wait until Election Day.

I already voted. Have you?

What’s Your Vote? Monday, Mar 19 2012 

Illinois’ primary election is tomorrow, and I am excited but not for reasons the politicians would like. It’s the temporary cessation of political phone calls, ads, and commercials I’m looking forward to. Every day my front door and mailbox is stuffed with political postcards, my phone rings off the hook from an onslaught of recorded messages, and the tv and radio airwaves are shouting campaign propaganda.

I understand that candidates need to get their names recognized. And I do appreciate my freedom to vote and want to use this privilege responsibly. I just don’t want to be bombarded with all the noise and clutter, none of which swayed my decision.
