As I looked at my ballot summary on the Diebold machine which captured my vote to make sure that none of my choices had been magically flipped..............I was proud that I had chosen an array of Democrats, Republicans and even a Libertarian based upon the following methodology.
- I vote my interests based upon a consciousness and well being in relation to my noted "permanent interests" that radiates from my family/loved ones and my household and then outward toward my community, my city, my county, my state, my region, my nation. Anyone who has protected my permanent interests in this manner made it through the first filter
- The second filter was applied in which anyone who disrespected my intelligence by drawing upon some arbitrary loyalties and have me vote a straight ticket was voted AGAINST. Thus any politician that was noted to have established a PROFILE of me based upon my RACE, my geographic location (in the South) or my assumed PARTY MEMBERSHIP/IDEOLOGY was stricken from my ballot. They have no respect for me as an intelligent individual who is and EQUAL human being in God's eyes. They have a tendency to divert attention away from fully justifying their own qualifications and performance and instead have me to "vote for the team". I refuse to NATIONALIZE my vote. Instead I LOCALIZE it with reference to my Permanent Interests.
- In the down ballot choices I applied my desire to avoid having a "One Party State". Regardless of my ideological preferences I prefer a split government to prevent the machine from getting too comfortable as it aggregates too much power. Thus partisan diversity was used as a tie breaker in several occasions.
The goal is not to become anti-government. Instead one needs to build up local GOVERNANCE, where the order is put in line with the attainment of one's permanent interests by engaging the talents of the human resources that are as close to home as possible.
IF the "food justice" people can suggest that we eat food that was produced as close to home as possible then surely doing the same with regard to productive competency among human beings should follow suit.
