In politics, as in life, we often have to choose between imperfect candidates and their platforms. And most voters recognize this and see their choices as more complex than simple.
I am an Independent who votes for the candidates he thinks best represent his values, which are really-and-truly mainline American as well as mainline Christian. I value personal integrity, experience, and knowledge of the U.S,.constitution in persons for whom I vote.
With these and similar values uppermost in mind, I invite the reader to consider the following questions I am asking about five or six of our best-known politicians:
Which do you think has the best personal Integrity? __________________
Which has the most valuable experience? __________________________
Which knows best the U.S. constitution?___________________________
With which would you most like to be friends? ______________________
