Campaign for unity

Springtime is here in all its refreshing, positive glory. Some will attempt to tarnish this sense of renewal and freshness with negative, meaningless campaign slogans; such a silly waste of precious intellectual and economic resources!

The words we choose to express differing views matter greatly. Searching for that middle ground of compromise provides a respectful space where true wisdom resides.

Special-interest agendas serve only to divide, frustrate and stagnate true governance, but true statesmen strive for unity through compromise. Choosing language based on honest dialogue and debate using facts, logic and specific plans for every issue can lead to enlightenment and solutions. Anything less should not be tolerated by we the people.

My optimistic campaign for unity is based upon that positive good demonstrated during local, regional or national emergencies. We are very capable of being the best we can be all the time by choosing the language of cooperation, compromise and mutual respect. Let’s campaign for unity!
