I am going to remember each time a young, aspiring campaigning state representative came to my door to solicit my vote. There were an enjoyable conversation, mostly him saying why he wished to represent me and why he was qualified. Conservative values, low or no taxes, along with a little bit about his background as a tax attorney. Exactly why are most politicians lawyers anyway? But that's another subject.Opinion
I told him I had two questions for him i failed to want him to answer the precise question, but things i wanted to know by asking those two questions was on which basis he'd make his decision.
Both general questions were asking how however opt to vote on some adult video or pornographic legislation and how he would opt to vote on road improvement expenditures.
"Regarding the roads, I am going to listen to individuals and vote the way they want me to vote. The only issue is becoming input from your people. Very few people try those kinds of decisions. That is another problem.
Regarding the, a few things i will call, moral issues, (This is just what he called my proposed question) I will vote my conscience, my morals, my values. If, once the next election arrives, you do not like the way I vote on moral issues, then don't reelect me."
I used to be stunned! I'd found a guy i could support, assuming his moral values matched mine. It really is imperative that individuals elect officials that may react to the people without compromising their very own standards and moral principles. Some issues are relative. Morals and values are absolute. And I will absolutely prefer those absolute values!
After our discussion he left our home to continue canvassing the area. Soon after minutes he reappeared within my door to tell me his car wouldn't normally start. Assuming it had not been a member of family political prank to get my sympathetic vote, I graciously went out and jump started his car, which absolutely started.
