Withhold vote until country comes first

Hypothetically, if we have a politician who wants to be our next senator or congressman and is handsome, articulate, has good ideas and who is running against a cow, we would naturally vote for the politician. However, we should all realize that when the politician gets to Washington, D.C., he will automatically morph into a cow, and all he is going to do is eat, drink and eliminate waste.

Right now we have a two-party system: The Party in Power and the Dumb Party. No reward should be given to a political party whose primary goal is to block progress.

What politicians are saying today is less important than what they have done in the last four years. If we never vote for the Dumb Party, they will get the message and morph into a Smart Party.

Although I would like to vote for Mitt Romney, since we are both Mormons and because I know that honesty and dealing fairly with our fellow man are vital parts of our religion, he is still a member of the Dumb Party. If he becomes president, the Democratic Party will morph into a Dumb Party, and we will have another four years of paralysis in government.

We must not vote for a member of the Dumb Party, no matter how good the candidate, until they become a Smart Party that puts our country first.

I agree with what you say in general. However, you said, "we should all realize that when the politician gets to Washington, D.C., he will automatically morph into a cow, and all he is going to do is eat, drink and eliminate waste."

The part about eliminated waste is misleading, yes a cow eliminates waste, but a politician is not at all about eliminating waste, actually a politician does just the opposite.

"and because I know that honesty and dealing fairly with our fellow man are vital parts of our religion". Reality check; it may well be a vital part of your religion, it is with most religions, but don't kid yorself, it does not mean that the followers abide by it. I have worked for a few different Mormons, the last about 5 years ago, and he was anything but honest and he took advantage of many customers through lies and deceit. Money does it to anyone, religion notwithstanding!!

Well said, Mr. Dougall. It is good to encounter a free thinking Mormon--kind of a rare commodity.
