I'll always remember whenever a young, aspiring campaigning state representative found my front door to solicit my vote. We had a pleasant conversation, mostly him saying why he wished to represent me and why he was qualified. Conservative values, low or no taxes, plus a small bit about his background like a tax attorney. Exactly why are most politicians lawyers anyway? But that's another subject.
I told him I had two questions for him i didn't want him to answer the particular question, but a few things i wanted to know by asking both of these questions was about what basis he'd make his decision.
The two general questions were asking how he would choose to vote on some adult video or pornographic legislation and the way however opt to vote on road improvement expenditures.
"Regarding the roads, I will listen to the folks and vote the direction they want me to vote. The only issue is becoming input from the people. Very few people try those kinds of decisions. But that is additional problems.
Concerning the, a few things i will call, moral issues, (This is just what he called my proposed question) I will vote my conscience, my morals, my values. If, once the next election comes around, you never just like the way I vote on moral issues, then don't reelect me."
I had been stunned! I needed found a man that I could support, assuming his moral values matched mine. It is imperative that individuals elect officials that will reply to the people without compromising their very own standards and moral principles. Some issues are relative. Morals and values are absolute. And I will absolutely vote for those absolute values!
After our discussion he left the house to keep canvassing the area. After a few minutes he reappeared at my door to share with me his car wouldn't start. Assuming it wasn't a family member political prank to acquire my sympathetic vote, I graciously went out and jump started his car, which absolutely started.
