Why do we pick the politicians we pick? Here’s what’s guiding us – Dallas News


Only an honest person can do that. Only a person with a spirit of strength and conciliation can do that.

It’s so easy to spit fire and preach to the choir. Turn on your choice of cable news or flip open social media to get a dose of that cheap act.

It’s so much harder to be willing to say that you will meet the other person somewhere in the middle. It’s so much harder to tell your own side that the whole loaf isn’t on the table.

We want politicians who are willing to do that. And when we make our choices, we are making them with that in mind. So we hope you vote, that you make your voice heard.  When more voters turn out, when more Americans cast their ballots, the more incentive there is for our elected officials to serve the needs of the whole. Saturday is Election Day.  Will your voice be heard?
