Sign Of The Times
Original post made
on Sep 28, 2008
On Sept.23rd at 11am I placed a sign in my yard to show my support for the Republican presidential candidates in this upcoming election .. by nightfall it had been taken .. Because I seriously doubt that this was just a random act of vandalism, the theft of my sign doesn't warrant as much concern as the attitude that allowed it to happen .. I'm discouraged when I consider the caliber of people who would feel justified doing this .. That ethics and morality are so unimportant to them, reflects poorly on their thinking, on their political ideology, and by extension, on their political party .. Those who believe that since there is so much at stake in this election, they may use any means available to win, should understand that those of us who differ with them are just as passionate about our love and our concern for our families, our neighbors, our country, and our world .. We do not take kindly to those who threaten our free agency .. It's scary to think that these people somehow imagine that they are better prepared than the rest of us to decide the really important issues .. It's high time they realized that few of us are .. To be well prepared we would need access to reliable information and the ability to rely on our own conscience instead of political affiliations .. good luck with that! .. In the past I have joked with my friends that If I was to place a conservative bumper sticker on my car, I would expect vandalism .. Though I halfway expected some negative response to my yard sign, I was still a bit surprised and saddened when it came .. My belief was confirmed so quickly .. I wonder what other crimes these people are willing to excuse in order to get what they want ..
