Balance



"If you ask any eighth-grader about why we have three branches of government, you’ll likely get a blank look until you mention, “Checks and….” Then you’ll get “Balances!”

And that is what tomorrow is all about, folks, achieving balance. It is not good for the government to be dominated by any one ideology or party. That does not reflect the makeup of our country, and when it happens, a very small minority is satisfied, and most people end up unhappy. It wasn’t good in the early part of this century when the Republicans ran the show (poorly), nor is it good now when the Democrats are running the show (also poorly).

So the way I look at voting tomorrow is: It’s not about achieving your views, it’s about achieving balance to their views.

Go. Vote. Achieve balance."
