Vote for candidates, not party tickets
I was amused at the letter asking why the political party name was not on campaign signs. I remember when I was an election judge. While assisting a handicapped person, he did not want to know who was running for office, but just wanted to know where the Democratic lever was.
A very wise man, who was a Republican and my father, told his nine children that we did not vote for a Democrat or a Republican, but that our vote was to be for a man or a woman. We were told to first check their moral standards and then their ethical standards. If these standards were OK, then the remainder of the their platform could possibly be reasonably OK.
If we choose to vote just for a party, we may vote for one who is lying or immoral or unethical or a law-breaking candidate. So we need to get off the stool of “do nothing” and check out the land. You might find either a snake under a rock or you could find some gold nuggets. Then get out and vote! DENZIL T. CHEEK
