This fall we are called upon to, in some cases, re-elect unopposed incumbents. What if the candidate isn’t quite up to par? For example, if he doesn’t readily know civil from criminal events? His behavior is that of one either clueless or with a whimsical vendetta? Brings in someone from a “brother” agency to illegally harass? What if this agency has done this to others, cost them everything they had to be left alone?
You are being called to put such an individual right back in office to continue the job he has been tasked to do for “we the people.” Seriously? It’s time to evaluate which candidates represent the will of the electorate and the job they have sworn to uphold vs. those who represent themselves and their will to the people, opposite of the basis of American government.
Perhaps those who fail “we the people” repeatedly need to be replaced, even if it takes a write-in campaign.
