Campaign Season – Inspire Me and You Might Get My Vote

At this time every four years I go on a “news fast” taking a break from listening to the radio.  It calms me in what feels like a storm of endless political banter.  That being said, I think it’s important to fully understand 1) what’s going on within our government and 2) who is running for office and their platform. Voting is not only our right, but our duty as citizens who each day are creating families, communities, cities, states, and finally, our country. Our vote is an expression of the future we want.

My desire for campaign season is this: to hear candidates talking about their vision. I want to see, feel, taste, and smell what his plan will do for my family, my community, and my country. We know by now that our brain only hears nouns.  So, if candidates talk about all the problems he will solve, we will get more problems to solve. If he talks about what he values and what his principles are – such as integrity, abundance, compassion, independence, and authenticity, using those as the basis of his platform, we will get more of those things. Think of Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mother Theresa. What do they have in common? When they spoke, you heard what they wanted to see, do, or change.

When I am asked what party I affiliate with, I say what I believe in.  Labeling myself a Democrat or Republican only has meaning to the person who is asking me “what” I am. I usually say something along the lines of, ” I believe in a meritocracy, transparency, integrity, giving, knowledge, competition, love of self and others, and personal growth and independence.”

Once I hear where we can go and what we have accomplished from a leader who is not afraid to change the traditional campaign game, then I will turn the news back on.
