There are some single-issue voters, but most wise individuals will look at a variety of things and make up their decisions accordingly. Addressing properly the combination of the various issues, will have a better chance to help them also to advance their specific field of interest.
No wonder that many millions of dollars are being spent on advertising and promotions, before elections, by all parties. Assuming that many people are not well informed and are willing to listen to their favorite politicians, broadcaster and other opinion promoters, these paid advertisers are taking advantage of them, to the benefit of the politicians and their self-serving interest groups, while sometimes ignoring the real needs of the average citizens. It is important to note, that there are many honorable, wise, selfless, and dedicated politicians who are trying to advance the interest of the people and the integrity of the country that they serve, who deserve our solid support.
Some of the most important topics which are going to be decided by the people, at the ballot boxes, are the choices of giving the mandate and the authority to the future leaders of the country. Hopefully, these people will work hard to the benefit of all the honorable citizens and to the overall stability and prosperity of the country.
Among many other things, the new leaders should be those who will implement solid actions to protect the safety and security of the individual citizens, will guard the integrity of the national boarders, will secure the economic stability of the country with good jobs and control of inflation, will facilitate excellent and accurate education of the children, will dispel deception and misinformation in the media and in the schools, and will stand up bravely against any pressure, which will help them protect fearlessly, the people and the county, from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
Being aware of the potential deception in advertising and in political ads, how are we going to identify these wonderful and responsible future good leaders?
Most people who seek office, will have a tract record of what they stood for and of what they did, in the past. Despite attempts by some people, to limit access to the relevant information about them, much of the information should be available to the savvy citizens, who would like to identify wisdom, values, sincerity, consistency, opinions, actions, and most importantly deception and flip flopping.
In addition, there are many good people who have a long track record of knowledge, wisdom, and solid and well documented opinions, that should be listened to, before taking any final decisions. It may be wise to also listen to different sides of the same arguments, as they could be very useful to the average person to sort out their own personal opinion and take their own relevant action.
Most people have established their own opinions based upon their previous experiences. Even those who have made up already their own minds based upon their previous experience, should step back for a moment, before taking specific and final decisions, and try to gather more relevant information, just to make sure that they are not going to make irreversible mistakes. These mistakes could be very costly to themselves, to their families and to their country.
Therefore, before voting, joining a movement, running for office, getting involved in community affairs, etc. please make sure that you have accumulated as much relevant information as you could, before acting, to avoid future regrets due to hasty decision.
