Once the Shouting is Over

Over the last few months, people have been asking me how I was going to vote. It was a very tough question, as I felt that each candidate brought a lot of positive attributes to the table. If they govern by these attributes, we could all do well in the next four years.

In addition, I sensed that both candidates truly loved their country, regardless of the partisan propaganda claiming otherwise. I further believed that either candidate would do their best to help this country out of a very tough place. How successful they are will depend on many things, the least of which is the partisan malaise that has infected almost every aspect of our culture.

So - who did I vote for?

Well, I found that I did not fully agree enough with either candidate enough to support them 100%. Additionally, I wanted to support a third party as I am sick and tired of having to deal with bi-partisan gridlock. I only wish more people would vote this way instead of "holding their noses" and remaining loyal to a party that has left them in the dust. I am completely aware that my 3rd party vote pretty much translates into a vote for Obama, as Vermont will easily go into the Blue column with or without my support. That is OK with me. My goal was to help a third party qualify for matching funds should they reach the magic 5%.

I know most people disagree with this concept, but that is the beauty of this country - we are free to vote as our conscience dictates.

So here is the million dollar question: After the polling places go dark, the news vans pack up and the final campaign drum roll fades into the distance... what happens next? Do we continue on with the mindless political divisions if our preferred candidate loses or do we actually step up to the plate and take one for the sake of the team?

Even though I did not cast a ballot for either of the likely winners, I plan on unconditionally supporting whoever wins today. I hope all of you will do the same.

The bottom line is that if we want to survive as a union, then we need to act like true citizens who share in a united vision of the greatness that IS America... warts and all, as opposed to sniping partisans who believe in only in their skewed and ego-centric vision of what America should be.
