I will remember each time a young, aspiring campaigning state representative came to my door to solicit my vote. We'd a pleasant conversation, mostly him saying why he wished to represent me and why he was qualified. Conservative values, low or no taxes, along with a little bit about his background like a tax attorney. How come most politicians lawyers anyway? But that is another subject.
I told him I needed two questions for him and i also failed to want him to resolve the particular question, but a few things i wished to know by asking those two questions was about what basis however make his decision.
The 2 general questions were asking how however choose to vote on some adult video or pornographic legislation and the way however decide to vote on road improvement expenditures.
"Regarding the roads, I am going to tune in to the folks and vote how they want me to vote. The only issue is getting input from the people. Not many people have a go at those types of decisions. But that's one other issue.
Concerning the, what I will call, moral issues, (This is what he called my proposed question) I'll vote my conscience, my morals, my values. If, once the next election appears, you never just like the way I vote on moral issues, then don't reelect me."
I was stunned! I had found a man i could support, assuming his moral values matched mine. It is imperative that people elect officials that will react to the folks without compromising their very own standards and moral principles. Some issues are relative. Morals and values are absolute. And that i will absolutely prefer those absolute values!
After our discussion he left our house to continue canvassing the area. Soon after minutes he reappeared within my door to share with me his car wouldn't start. Assuming it had not been a relative political prank to get my sympathetic vote, I graciously recently jump started his car, which absolutely started.
