Several times during the last few months, I’ve heard various individuals refer to a specific candidate as “the one who can win” or “the one who can beat so and so…”
Whatever happened to voting for someone who represents your ideas and who might be a better leader, regardless of what you think about his or her likelihood of winning?
Why isn’t there more emphasis on educating the public about the values and ideas of all the candidates, instead of all the polarizing coverage of a handful for the sake of ratings?
It’s a disservice to play this game when the country has so much to lose or potentially gain.
