I’m an optimist but even I am finding it difficult to find anything positive about this current presidential election. The debate was better than I expected but still horrible at the same time. There were no real, articulate arguments made. The beauty and power of the free market was basically ignored. The moderator was practically useless, and when he did ask questions, they frequently were the wrong ones.
So here is my take away: as depressing as the presidential race is, we need to turn our attention to the local races and find inspiration there. The county, state, and Senate/House races are really going to make a difference. We’ve got to be paying attention. The presidential election is only one battle. There are many more going on around us and those will determine the direction of the war.
