Thoseout – of – power, often, articulate, their dis – pleasure, resorting to blaming and complaining their political opponents, rather than focusing on how to make things better, get additional info! If you don’t like the current agenda, your focus should be, on re – gaining political power, and addressing relevant, sustainable issues, in a way, which inspires, others, to think about, making a change – for – the – better! In order to accomplish this, it’s important, and necessary, to get out the VOTE! Unless, before, more people overcome their apathy, and devote, to voting, how do we expect, a more dedicated, well – informed, electorate? When, over half of the prospective voters, avoid their responsibility, right, and obligation, to vote, blaming and complaining, is not a solution! With that in mind, this article will try to temporarily, identify, think about, and discuss, using the mnemonic strategy, some of what, this is all about.
1. Voice; vision; voting; success: Shouldn’t we seek to elect public officials, who are the genuine voice, of most of the people, prioritizing the common good, over self – interest, empty rhetoric and promises, vitriol, and any personal/ political agenda, and self – interest? In 2016, we elected Donald Trump, as President, in a campaign, apparently focused on, and highlighting, whining and whining, as opposed to offering a viable vision, for the future! Many, today, complain about President Trump’s leadership, but, when less than half the population, participates, in voting, it may not be a victory, for the people!
2. Opinions; options; chances: We are , entitled to our own opinions, but not to our own, set of facts! Political fact – checkers, have said this President has resorted to lies and mis – statements, over 6 times, per day, since his election, and by calling anything that he disagrees with (or disagrees/ criticizes, with him), our people are divided, and, frequently, confused! We need to vote for men and women that consider viable options and alternatives, seeking relevant, sustainable opportunities, into a sustainable future, rather than focusing, on making America, great again!
3. Timely; trends; truthful; hope: When our leaders are not truthful, how do they earn and gain, the public’s trust? Rather than rhetoric, we need leadership, which identifies, and takes advantage of relevant trends, and is timely, and well – considered!
4. Empathy; emphasis; energy; enrich; excellence: Unless/ until, leaders listen and learn, effectively, from everything they hear, and every experience, and transform this to relevant expertise, and excellence, they will often put their emphasis, in their own personal/ political agenda, and self – interest, as opposed to on the common good. When one proceeds, with the energy, to enrich the others, and the nation, he becomes a greater public official!
Wake up, America, and stop making excuses, whining and whining, and voting, based on empty rhetoric, personal biases/ bias, etc! Avoid being apathetic, and then whining, but commit, to VOTE!
