Current political season.

Post by Butch Hendricks on Sat Jun 04, 2016 1:23 pm

We all know that this election cycle has been more than a little wild and wooly. We've seen good candidates fall by the wayside. Now, we are left with choices that seen to go from bas, to worse, to ridiculous. Many of us struggle with the thought of what to do. Many of us, myself included, go to social media and just grouse about the choices left to us.

What to do...

I have heard many people say "I'm just not going to vote." DON'T fall into this trap! I firmly believe that every vote really does count, and allows your voice to be heard. Also, it is the duty of each of us to take part in the system.

You may be saying that you don't care for the candidates. I encourage you to be as highly informed as you can and research the candidates. I know how easy it is to listen to other people's negative opinions, or insulting memes on social media, but I encourage each of you to do your civil and moral duty and educate yourselves. It's just the right thing to do.

Dear Butch,

I wholeheartedly agree with you.

I think that what you are saying is the duty of a Knight.

The Twelve Trusts could serve as a good way to judge a political candidate: are they honest, loyal? Will they defend those in need? Do they place character above riches and concern for others above personal wealth?...

Arete!

It is so difficult to see the good in politics when it is shrouded in all the dramatic name calling and the scandal claims and etc. It is so difficult to get to the issues when politics is one of the issues.

But it is true...one should vote but only when one has properly educated themselves. Simply voting to say you voted is almost as bad if not worse than not voting. Voting carries with it a great deal of responsibility. If you are not educated on the issues of the day, looked over the solutions and thought critically on the various matters then maybe it is best that you do not vote. It would be like buying a gun when you do not know how to use one...voting on something you know little to nothing about may cause you to shoot yourself in the foot and/or someone else.

So vote...but vote carefully.
