On Nov. 3, we the people get to decide the future of our nation. Not since 1864 has the presidential election been so consequential to our republic, nor the choice so diametrically binary.

To vote for Joe Biden you must believe much of the following: That higher taxes will accelerate recovery of an economy devastated by the Chinese virus; regulation and big government are essential to creating a healthy economy; elimination of fossil fuels, implementation of The Green New Deal and the resultant loss of energy independence will stimulate our economy; opening our borders and providing free health care, education and housing to illegals will somehow benefit minority citizens; anarchist rioting, looting and destruction of cities is somehow justified because of alleged police brutality; charter schools and school choice are bad for minority children and should be eliminated; and Hunter Biden got millions from China and Ukraine because of his general business acumen and vast financial and petroleum experience.

To vote for Donald Trump you have to believe that, unfettered by the Chinese virus, the Russia hoax and impeachment hearings, Trump, can replicate his first three years in office which saw record-low unemployment, strong economic growth and no new wars.

Just remember, it is far more important to vote for sound policy than to vote against personality.
