This is a political year, in case you hadn’t noticed. Voting in primary elections is vital for good citizens, because it is here that each party’s candidates are selected. In Michigan, the primary election is just a month away, on 5 August. I encourage all citizens to seriously consider who you might vote for, in primary or general elections. Look at performance–talk is cheap. We don’t need a chief executive who has not demonstrated leadership under pressure, wisdom in decision making, and love of country. We don’t need legislators who lack real-world business experience. Please vote on primary and general election days, but vote intelligently.
