What’s Wrong With Us?

Since when does being told to vote your conscience a bad thing? Isn’t that we what we are supposed to do?

Last night at the RNC Convention, as Senator Ted Cruz was ending his speech, he encouraged voters to vote their conscience and was booed. What was so wrong with that?

Of course with him speaking at the convention, the expectation was that he would endorse the Republican Presidential Nominee, Donald Trump. But couldn’t voting your conscience land you on voting for Donald Trump?

I have also seen a video clip of a woman holding a  No Racism No Hate sign at the convention, and people around her were obviously upset at her sign, and tried to cover it up with an American flag. Aren’t we for No Hate No Racism?

 

What is wrong with us? We need to lose this mob mentality. We don’t think clearly, nor process facts in the mob mentality. We just jump on the bandwagon. Remember it was a mob that made a very critical choice just over two thousand years ago when the mob chose a murderer to be released instead of the one for whom no fault could be found.

Next week, it will be the Democratic Convention. I hope that it is better, less dark, more hopeful, and visionary.

Just so you know, I was really hoping for John Kasich. Personally, my conscience won’t allow me to vote for Mr. Trump based on what his candidacy has shown.
