Get informed and then vote

You own a company and hired a management team. It has become so  dysfunctional that they can’t agree on anything except their wages, perks and work schedule. They enjoy only a 13 percent approval rating from you. You have three options: Keep them in their present positions and hope that they will change, replace half of them or replace all of them.

The first option will undoubtedly lead to the demise of your company. The second option would probably develop a group that is of one mind and will probably have the same result. The third option could produce a group that has differing ideas but is willing to work together.

The third option may be the most attractive. If you agree with that, why would you choose either of the other two? In essence those are the choices we face in next year’s elections. Before we hire anyone to represent us, let’s check the resumes of the candidates. Be persuaded to vote for the person who most closely represents you. Pay no attention to the party or who has raised the most money. Hire the person who you would trust the most to manage our “company, “America.” Become an informed voter. You are the hope of our country. Act accordingly.
