As 84,000 attendees and 35 million television viewers watched, Barak Obama, the Democratic candidate, postured last week for a run for the American Presidency. This week, his Republican opponent, John McCain, will make his own pitch.
Although we may be cynical of campaign promises, we continue to watch. Are we wasting our time by watching such spectacles?
What a relief it might be, if voters might be assured that such folks speak the truth! Someday, somewhere, and somehow . . . . the truth may be revealed. In the meantime, here’s a look at role models, who seem to roll-over . . . and over . . . and over . . . and how many American voters will make their choice.
Limericks Plain on the Big Campaign
Above all, my brothers, do not swear –
not by heaven or by earth
or by anything else.
Let your "Yes" be yes,
and your "No," no.
(James 5:12, NIV)
Some may have it – others not.
Gender and ethnicity,
Showcased for publicity,
Can the voters still be bought?
What credentials are required
For the highest office hired?
Seasoned pro with newbie Veep
Or vice-versa? We’re in deep!
How will this one be umpired?
No mere pay scale do they count;
Still they rate in Heav’n’s amount.
Sound-bite stealers, best take note.
This is how I cast my vote,
Letting life be paramount.
