Voting for the Lesser of Two Evils

This logic pulls us inexorably to the left. The sole requirement for receiving the endorsement of the Republican party is registration as a Republican. There must be a limit. We might sometimes actually be better off with elected officials who are known to be wrong, than those who deceive and betray us. It would force us to be more vigilant and to use the legislature to stop them from doing harm. It’s too dangerous to withhold a vote in a election for a legislator, but for some of the myriad governing boards we are asked to vote on, it is necessary to draw a line. In this election, I offer the county supervisors (see neighboring post) and the Kyrene School Board (see neighboring post) as examples.
