I still have not gotten around to updating my website the way I should. I live in Ohio now, but that is not obvious from my website. Nevertheless, I have begun tracking the election campaigns from the perspective of a resident of Mount Vernon, OH instead of Gainesville, VA. That is why I posted the video above.
Who are those guys in the video above? Candidates for the U.S. Senate.
If you are a registered voter in Ohio, I hope that you take the time to watch and listen to the video above. Debates by themselves are not the best way to assess the character of a candidate, but they do give us some idea as to how well the individuals involved stand up to pressure and how well they think on their feet.
What else is necessary? We need to fact check what the candidates say. We need to assess whether they try to deal with the pressure by telling the truth or lying.
Note two things.
- When we face check the candidates, we need to do some serious research. That is because thenews media is highly partisan. Most of the news media will cover up for the Democrat candidate. However, some of the news media will cover up for a Republican. Therefore, we must dig for the truth.
- We cannot sit out the election. We have an obligation to vote for the best (or the least evil) candidate. The only thing necessary for evil to succeed is for good men to do nothing, and not voting is doing nothing.
Much of the news media will do its best to discourage us from voting. Instead of praising the candidate they support (especially if there is obviously nothing to praise), they will make endless accusations against the candidate they don’t support. We cannot let all they accusations discourage us. For the sake of our family, friends, and neighbors, we must still take the time to vote for the best candidate.
