Everyone’s asking. Here’s my answer.
I will vote for the first person that treats the other candidate as a real person.
I will vote for the first person that says, “The other candidate would do a good job, too, and I’m grateful to live in a country where we can honestly and openly disagree and not have to worry about losing our lives.”
I will vote for the first person that says, “I don’t have all the answers, but I’m a quick learner.”
I will vote for the first person who says that in order to take care of “us”, we need to be taking care of others. If we actually practiced loving our neighbor, we wouldn’t have to worry so much about protecting what’s in our backyard.
I will vote for the first person who understands that to be entrusted with power is a dangerous and scary thing, not something to be pursued at any cost.
I’m not certain how two people who spent $640 million and $370 million respectively can relate to me, who is struggling to get by month to month under the weight of debt. I’m not certain how two people who have spent so much effort and energy building an image, convincing people why they should win, can relate to someone who’s trying to lose his life. And I’m just not certain that two people who are convinced that the proper use of power is the correct answer to today’s problems can relate to someone who knows that Love is greatest power in the universe.
And that’s all I have to say about politics.
Small Things—Great Love.
