Who Am I?

I served in the US Navy from 2002-08; four of those years were as a Nuclear Propulsion Operator aboard an aircraft carrier. I engage in political activism in various Democratic circles when I am able to. I have a cat, and I am an uncle.

All opinions that I express are my own and do not reflect the views of any organization that I represent.

I might have been a TAD abrasive in my critiques of third parties, but the truth is that one of these two people will be elected president tommorrow.

To the undecided voters that remain and especially those that live in competitive states, ask yourself this: you have two candidates for a job. One group, A, thoroughly vetted their two major choices and one person emerged. The other group, B, vetted 17 people and one person emerged out of that group.

Group A’s candidate was as an administrator, played an active role in community service, is well versed in international relationships, and knows the inner workings of how the company work. The candidate has detailed knowledge about the makeup of the company’s employees, their issues, and is constantly studying on ways to improve their lives. Group A’s candidate has an issue with record keeping but has been cleared of any wrongdoing.

While Group B’s candidate despite a business background has a well-documented history of sexual harassment, discrimination, prejudice, promoting a hostile work environment, and has not disclosed any financial records that have been requested. Group B’s candidate also has looming unresolved legal issues.

The company will pick one of these two candidates. A third option is not viable. Selecting a third option means that your choice will be noted, but will likely result in a candidate you despise running this complex company and its employees for the next four years.

Obviously, Group A’s candidate is highly qualified but has flaws. There is no such thing as a perfect candidate. B’s candidate could potentially damage the reputation of the company that would take years to recover from, and the morale of the employees would drop.

The time for choosing is upon us.

Choose wisely
