Primary Elections

The 2016 primaries top every news cycle. The anger, frustration, rancor is palpable - with Donald Trump leading the rage. Celebrity and name recognition are not the best qualities when choosing a nation's leader. However, in the absence of credible sources or information, we choose what is familiar.

It would be nice if political candidates appealed to our higher senses: honesty, integrity, mutual respect, class. While also providing information we could substantiate, confirm and test. But politicians who run high-vibration campaigns rarely win elections over the last 30 years. It's one reason why only 50-60% eligible American voters actually vote or engage in politics. (Source) Many reasons exist for political or voter apathy: low-vibration campaigns is just one.

The primaries were created to help us sift through candidates. A first step toward choosing someone qualified who aligns with our beliefs, values, concepts of empowerment and definition of leadership - before the main populace votes.

While contentious primaries and elections occurred often over past 50 years, this election year appears more volatile and negative. The media like it that way. Media producers decide what news to broadcast. Don Henley's song Dirty Laundry comes to mind. The more controversial, divisive the topic, the more viewers watch. Media is judged on their viewership or readership.

We have 8 remaining months of political fighting before November elections. It will get dirtier before things calm down. Just like a hurricane. All of us want the same thing: a stronger, more unified nation of opportunity, economic prosperity, self-empowering environment.

Researching to uncover facts and candidates' records instead of hearing more rage, anger, fear on the airwaves will help each of us raise America's vibration. We have 8 more months to change the tone and attitude in our country.

Using the Butterfly Effect, what you do now, how you react to current forces and information, can change the course of current events. It's up to you: live in the negative or move into the positive.
