Re: Cannot vote for Hiremath, July 23 - Maksim states that “Selecting a candidate for public office based purely on his/her support for same-sex unions is silly as selecting a candidate based purely on skin color or gender – witness our recent national experience with a sitting president and with a former Secretary of State.” Facts prove that the latter part of this statement is totally false. Facts show that the American people not only once, but twice, voted their conscience and selected Barack H. Obama & Joe Biden over John McCain and Sarah Palin and more recently over Mitt Romney (Mr. 47 percent) and Paul Ryan because past performance and the debates proved that the Obama-Biden team displayed the ability to better serve the American people. Ergo, skin color proved not to be the deciding factor but ability to do the job as displayed to the American people.

Selecting a candidate for public office based purely on his/her support for same-sex unions is as silly as selecting a candidate based purely on skin color or gender witness our recent national experience with a sitting president and with a former Secretary of State). I expect my plumber to fix my leaks, my electrician my lights, and my doctor my health. Correspondingly, I expect my elected officials to fix broken government, to lead with honesty and integrity, to control spending and budgets, to battle bureaucratic growth, to maintain open and transparent government, and to respond promptly and fairly to constituents’ needs and requests. And, yes, to fill the potholes in my street. Any other expectation lies outside the scope of good governance and is nonsense.
