What impressed me the most about our recent elections was not the candidates, the political parties, or even the ballot issues.
What impressed me most was all of you, who quietly and peacefully stood up and spoke out at the ballot box.
Our Founding Fathers are smiling, and so am I.
Please share this message with others, and ask them to go and do likewise!Postscriptum: Apparently, some folks remain confused about the point of this post. It has nothing to do with any individual political candidate or any political party. It is solely about the voter turnout at the election, and how important it is for all of us to be anxiously engaged in the election of our leaders. Good grief!
Prior to the trembling birth of our great nation’s “American Excellence”, Thomas Paine wrote, “These are the times that try men’s souls” ( “The American Crisis”).
Nowadays, many likeminded and concerned citizens feel the same way about our elected and wanna-be elected officials, as well as for the future of West Virginia and our country.
Further, many of us didn’t much care for our election choices.
While I am pleased and proud to return and report that I was the very first voter in West Virginia's Berkeley County, I also confess that my heart truly yearned for some better ballot box choices.
Simply put: Too many, in both major political parties, far too often seek out their own self-aggrandizement, as well as intrusion over the lives of all of us and our families.
Far too often, their pandering political flatulence leads them to believe that they know better than we do about what’s best for us and our families.
Even so, and regardless of who you supported in this year’s elections, let not our hearts be troubled.
There are many steps that still and should be enacted into law, to make West Virginia and our nation greater.
