Throw Out The 'Bad Actors'!

Nor' east Thinkin'

Officials who don’t keep their promises don’t deserve your vote

Bad actors are people who look the part, but fail to deliver in the role they play. Government has them too, lots of them.

While America is blessed with a multitude of highly dedicated public servants, we’re also cursed with an ample crop of self-serving rascals. Our role as citizens is to sort them out and throw them out via the voting booth. If we don’t, we get all the bad government we deserve.

Fiscal irresponsibility is something we simply can’t afford anymore - on a state or federal level - by politicians or appointed bureaucrats. One horridly perfect example of fiscal irresponsibility - no, fiscal abuse - is the Obama/EPA's mandate for the Chesapeake Bay. I won’t go into it here. But I urge you to read the “Food for Thought” editorial in November’s American Agriculturist. It should be arriving this week or early next.

You have plenty of time between now and November 2 to learn what your Congressional candidates say they stand for and what side they actually came down on. And if you don’t vote, you’re as bad an actor as those in elected office.

So get out, and vote. Be a part of the solution, not part of the problem. That’s my challenge to you!
