“Anyone but Bibi”
One hears it like a broken record in the streets of Tel Aviv
It’s not unfamiliar.
I turn on the American news and that same mantra is being repeated.
“Anyone but Trump”
I get it. I mean Bibi has been in a chronic state of Prime Ministership and Israelis, I feel could use a change and fresh thinking. (and no corruption charges)
And well, between his tweets, his Sharpie and his weird comments; I know a change is badly needed in the US government also.
However, “Anyone but” SHOULD NOT be a response, nor a campaign slogan. But to choose a leader purely based on defiance, rather than their ability to lead a democratic country, seems to mute the point of elections in the first place.
Israel and America need our leaders to lead a country unto itself, as well as being global leaders on the world stage which is crucial for the existence of our countries.
I hear all the cries for better, stronger, smarter, more eloquent leadership —
ANYONE BUT . . .
I am open for a much-needed change but the options don’t seem to better the country. Don’t seem to better my future.
And don’t seem to better the existence of these democracies.
“Anything but” is purely a band-aid.
We need strong solutions, we need brains, military acumen, admirable leadership & we need commitment not to a party but rather for the good of all humankind.
Imagine if your vote directly made the difference between results, not personal feelings-
Right now, we need to come together if only just a moment- to try and reach some clarity;
NOT JUST A BAND-AID
to get one out
just to put another one in
will NOT further our great nations.
It’s been a long time since I felt fulfilled by the votes I have cast.
As a good friend once said, “Make good choices”
May the best candidate prevail
