Accountability In GovernmentWritten by Arleen M. Kaptur

So, what is proper way of handling current trend toward non-accountability and machine answered "thank-you" notes? Basically, it is studying candidates as people. Cross over party lines if a certain candidate does not possess values and innate ability to take his job with all attachments and demands on time and ability. Each candidate should be voted upon individually, as to how they will perform and what their particular attributes are. If each voter took this criteria to voting booth, our government would be stronger and more intuned to only requirement of each and every government office - "For people, by people..."
Can you imagine what our country could do if our government officials and employees were truly accountable to those who elected them or actually give them a pay envelope? In no uncertain terms, each citizen should be priority and main concern, and then they can schedule their hectic appointments and meetings around this very basic job-related requirement. Also voters would not feel so taken advantage of when limos, airplanes, travel amenities, and other "perks" come into play.
This election time, vote for person and who he/she is and what they truly stand for, and not which party they belong to, who they know, or who someone else tells you to vote for. You are alone behind that curtain in voting booth, so let your conscience be looking over your shoulder. ENJOY! ©Arleen M.Kaptur 2002 August

Make Your Vote CountWritten by Arleen M.Kaptur

This election day read issues, but study person, their background, and their past records. A leopard could possibly be able to change their spots quicker than many a professional government official. If there is no solid, constant, and sincere effort to hear you, voter, then don't take a chance and look at other candidates who might just get job done right - and isn't that why we choose candidates we do - so minimum wage worker has same voice and deserves same respect as mega-corporations and their requirements?
If we call take time to vote intelligently, from our hearts and our minds, and not what media tells us to do, wouldn't our family lives and those of people we love and care about improve?
This election day - choose man/whoman who has their finger on pulse of everyone in our great country, and not in funds created to aid those who need it and now those who run it? Let's entrust our future to best candidate who will make best effort to create very best future for everyone and those yet to come. Please vote and let's hope and pray our choices are right ones! ©Arleen M. Kaptur 2002 November
