Happy Monday and Election Day Eve to you! It has been quite eccentric in the last few months leading up to this years election. But with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as the main two choices, what did you expect? Election Day is upon us, though, and I encourage everyone to get out and vote especially at the local and state level and not just for one person that claims he or she is the country's saving Grace. This years election reminds me of an old folk tale. The story of the Donkey and the Elephant and their rise to television stardom. Once upon a time there was a donkey and an elephant that were part of a traveling circus (or a debate team if you will). They traveled the country and talked about issues they think need to be corrected and pitched ideas back and forth on how it needs to be done. Donkey was known as the one with the silver tongue. She was very good at candy coating everything so it sounded like great ideas and was a master manipulator. But there was only one problem. Every time she told a lie, her ears got bigger. Elephant was more of a straight shooter. He had been preaching the problems for years but never wanted to do what it takes to fix the problems. For years they would pitch ideas and always seemed to hit a brick wall and couldn't compromise. It was beginning to take a toll on both of them as well as the crowds that came to see them debate. They began to resort to name calling and black mailing one another in an effort to regain the crowds they used to draw when they started. "This man is a racist!" Donkey squawked. "He eats up all the peanuts and doesn't leave any peanuts for the less fortunate and he doesn't like anyone who isn't an elephant like him!" "This is simply untrue." Elephant rebutted, "I have given plenty of peanuts away to lots of people, believe me. As a matter of fact the other day my friend who is very smart, unlike donkey, told me that I am one of the top peanut donors in the world." Donkeys ears started growing, and the Elephant could not quit boasting and flapping his trunk in the wind. The crowds were getting bigger and bigger however. Eventually a top Hollywood producer stumbled across a debate in Alabama and was so intrigued by the name calling and utter stupidity, that he thought he could turn this into a hit TV show. Kerry Stringer was the producer and his idea turned out to be a great success. Over the past year the show is being aired on Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, as well as many other major networks. The Kerry Stringer show has been the most watched, highly anticipated show of the year! THE END Moral of the story is to get out and vote tomorrow and let's put an end to the Kerry Stringer show. At least for four years. It is our right and our duty as Americans, and do not forget to vote at the local level, as these people who are elected will have more of an impact on your community, your families, and the environments directly around you than the donkeys and elephants you see on tv. Vote for Pedro!
