The Power of Choice

I usually start thinking about nothing and don't have any clear idea and as the day progresses and it becomes clear to me. So I some how, came about thinking of choices and who makes them. I mean everybody has an idea about choices from some of the most minute choices, to the choices that would last a life time. You spend sometimes hours on choices and others in a flash you've made a decision. Sometimes others either make choices that affect you directly indirectly or will affect you now or will affect you down the road in to the future.
So choices seem to me to be very important they seem to be so important that we should not hasten them .OK I'm not saying weather the chocolate or white milk decisions, but the choices that will impact you whether directly or indirectly.
Lets say marriage, you would never just walk out on the street and grab someones hand stand before a judge or minister and say I do and hope for bliss.It just doesn't work that way its what does happen when you do spend sometime in thought. Is it the right one is it the right time is it the best thing you should do.Allot to consider, considering the divorce rate in the US.
The real direction of my thought is this as a country we go to a voting booth and we spend so much time on the President so much on Congressmen but as far as local elections some shlub comes along and hes a friend of so and so or hes a great guy others say. We put little investment into these politicians on the local scale and yet somehow some way  or another, these people are the very ones that make choices that affect us directly and indirectly. They also move on and grow in the political spectrum and they just keep going and like  lets say Barrack Obama.
How foolish some people were who took that one vote and used it to put in power pretty much the worst man we have seen on the political front . He came from some where and why was he so special. How bad were his opposition candidates both in and out of party.Someone was there, who was it.
Bottom line we need to have not good candidates at the local level but great candidates. One whose heart and mind are in grounded in truth but in knowledge of the founding documents and liberties of this country. If they move up in the political arena we can have great candidates and are assured they will at least have the tools to make decisions based on what they know. I would hope that the future we we will see people making choices as I see them not just being with a "one vote doesn't matter" or "I ain't good enough".We must take a part whether in the public or behind the scene .We can make a difference but  the foundation begins with making a choice. The right choice.

  1. AMEN! Some people carry around the thought process that their vote doesn't count. So, they don't vote.. but little do they know how many others think that way besides themselves. Wonder how many people thought that during this past presidential election, didn't vote, but really could have made a difference.
