ELECTED OFFICIALS: Support those who walk their talk

| June 29, 2022 1:00 AM

Brain surgeon, firefighter and CPA, they all have something in common, especially if it applies to you. If you need a brain surgeon, you want the one who has the best outcome, best performance. If your house is on fire, you want a firefighter who knows what he is doing and do it quickly. Everyone wants to save on their taxes, so you pick the best CPA, who knows all the rules and gets results for yourself and family.

Now let me ask you a question? Do you care what his/her political views are, care if they tweet stupid stuff or have been faithful to their spouse, or just look funny and says stupid things in private? I submit you don’t care at all, you want the one who does the best for you, the best outcome, the most action. After all it’s your brain, your house and your money.

On the other hand if you’re choosing a pastor, school teacher or maybe a spouse, these things might matter.

Looking back at any past or present president, or any political person, think about that. You should elect someone who will do what they say and not just talk about it. You ultimately want a person who takes action and get things done. A person’s actions that best looks out for our country, someone who believes in this country and all that it stands for.

You probably know where this is going.
