LETTER: Election like a job interview

"Remember,they work for us and their campaign is an employment proposal. Our participation will determine who is hired."

Remember — it’s an employment proposal.  It started again, only this time much longer.  Our political parties will be submitting their proposals as to why we should hire them to run the business of the nation — our business and our nation. If we think of it as a “family business,” one that has been so since 1867, we want to keep it in the family.  It is so important that we all participate in selecting the most appropriate applicants for the future we want to see. We need to be aware of how the applicants propose to run our family business.

As collective owners of the business we are collectively responsible for selecting the best applicants. Remember, they work for us and their campaign is an employment proposal.  Our participation will determine who is hired.
