이명동의 세계인 한국인
Going beyond the ethnic background while retaining our core value is the ideal for any and every American. Nowadays, each one of us belongs on the world stage. It's up to each one of us how far we can go on that stage. It is a long, and demanding journey, at the same time, interesting, wonderful, rewarding task. This writing is a part of that task. - Dr. Myong D. Lee

Single Issue Voter

글쓴이 : 이명동 날짜 : 2020-04-04 (토) 10:08:20

The issues we face at the moment are many, complex, and touch on our human nature; our priorities.

Our priorities should be, hopefully, based on our vision of the world.

At the moment the vision is a very confusing concept.

The vision of some alcoholics may be to stay drunk as long, and often as possible.

The positive visions equality, peace, freedom, respectare complicated and face a strong opposition, namely, our own human nature.

 

Every election, we redefine ourselves. We try to set our vision. Hopefully.

 

“It takes a freakin’ day job to understand what’s going on.” A comment from a political townhall meeting.

Important issues are many but each election cycle is summarized/crystallized/marketed by a few slogans.

 

“A Leader, For A Change.” Jimmy Carter

 

“Let’s Make America Great Again.” 1980. “Morning Again in America.” Ronald Reagan.

 

“Experienced Leadership For American Future.” George H.W.Bush

 

“It’s the economy, stupid.” Bill Clinton

 

“Yes We can.” Barack Obama

 

“Make America Great Again.” Donald Trump

Behind these slogans, there are many many story lines. Some, not easy to communicate clearly, quickly. Well, most of them.

 

Crucial national issues are reduced to a few slogans.

Voters are dumbed down and become, in the end, single issue voters; many without their realizing the process. Gun, life, money, privilege, etc.,etc.,etc.

A community, country is never about a single issue. Not that simple.

 

In a way, single issue voters made Donald possible. Look how he is handling the current crisis. No more comment on that. Good leadership matters. Well informed, critically, clearly thinking public, a must. These days, it comes before good leadership for obvious reasons.

“Our best days still lie ahead.” Joe Biden. It may work. There are many, many, many heartaches behind that line.

 

“Electability” sums up Biden.

 

Wait, isn’t this election cycle making all of us a single issue voters?
