EARN MY VOTE

Painted in Waterlogue

To those running for the 435 House of Representative seats and 34 Senate seats in 2016, I would like you to earn my vote and those of reasonable Americans who reside in your districts.  Once the dust settles and it is known who will be running, I intend to send the following to every candidate within my voting district.  I will make my decision based on your position and stated action.  I am posting this for other voters to consider as well.  Our country’s future is at stake.

I have never taken an election more seriously than 2016. As is the case with many other voters, I want to know what you stand for, how you intend to work for those beliefs, and whether or not a vote for you is a good investment in America’s future. Please answer these questions and state HOW YOU WOULD SUPPORT YOUR POSITION THROUGH ACTION – IF ELECTED, sign the document, and return to me as is convenient. I have posted this document on social media for anyone else who might want to follow the same process.
