It’s no secret that I despise politics. However, with a Presidential election on the horizon, political poison seems to be everywhere.
I want a candidate who refuses to demonize their political opponents or attack them personally. Anyone who wants to lead The United States of America should be mature enough to respect their opponent while still being wildly at odds with their political positions.
Having worked in sales for the last several years, I understand the need to differentiate yourself from your competition, but I would never speak ill or poorly of a competitor. What does that accomplish besides making you look petty. This kind of advice holds true to so many things…past jobs during interviews and ex girlfriends or boyfriends during dates. Smashing your competition never makes you look good.
I’m voting for the person who never attacks groups of people for their race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, their wealth, or lack thereof as a way to get themselves elected. I’ve seen personally, within my own family, the devastating effect this kind of mentality can have, and I want no part of it!
I would vote for the candidate whose personal behavior is in line with what they profess to believe. A man or women with a personal code of conduct and rules they live by.
I will vote for a leader believes a better future is possible, and they work towards that future. They will set an incredible example for good work ethic, tenacity, and perseverance in the face of adversity.
I would vote for the candidate who makes no promises that they have no way of keeping, and if they make a promise they can’t keep, I want a candidate that will own up to his/her mistake, and apologize.
I would vote for the candidate whose vision is so big that it inspires the rest of us.
So there you have it. These are the qualities I want, and these are the qualities I will vote for.
