The choices made in the November election are a test of the moral compass of our nation. The nation is being tested; do we want a woman president just for the sake of the gender? Do we choose evil and dishonesty just for the sake of the gender? I think the nation has been presented a choice of two evils. Do we choose the lesser or the greater evil? In a time when only the very wealthy are allowed to run as candidates to be leaders of our nation we as a people must make the right choice. Great change to our society can only come from the local level. Those we choose as our representatives in Washington must be considered carefully – will they lead us into further decay and corruption or will they change the direction and move us onto a more enlightened path?
