To the victors the spoils

The prevailing thought is that political races have winners and losers. But it’s not so simple. We’re not voting for a winner at the expense of a loser – we’re selecting someone to lead based on on shared principles and values.

When the position is filled – and it will only be filled for a short time in most cases – we expect work to be completed and responsibilities upheld.

After an election we may disagree with an official’s position, but we should believe that what that person is representing will be beneficial to the whole. It isn’t about you or me. It’s about us.
