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.
