Jim Daly: Indifference Is Not a Viable Option
Would you be surprised if I told you that an election in Kentucky 34 years ago changed the course of American history? It’s true. On November 6 1984, a 44-year-old Republican judge defeated Walter D. Huddleston, one of the state’s incumbent senators by just 5,000 votes. It would have been impossible for those Kentucky voters to have foreseen the impact their vote would have, but without that judge there would be no Justice Gorsuch or Justice Kavanaugh. That’s right: the judge who won this upset election was Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell. It was Plato who said that the penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men. We either cast our vote or we lose the right to gripe about our government So, please: vote on November 6th.
