What is your plan for the future? August 7, 2010

There are quite a few signs out there suggesting that all the noise that is drawing the microphones and the cameras is not necessarily carrying the day when people march into the voting booth and pull the curtain. The most recent evidence is this result in the GOP Tennessee governor’s primary.

Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam took nearly half the vote in defeating U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp — he of the secessionist drift — and Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, he of the belief that Islam is not a religion, rather a cult.

The same sort of non-radical result surfaced in the Kansas Senate shape-up and in the gubernatorial primaries in Oklahoma.

I think this is a good thing: What is loud may not be what is liked.

Those who offer us anger, contempt for others, and only slogans can draw a crowd to an auditorium, but will fail to win our trust as they seek to lead us.

The next step will be to demand a consistent reply on every single issue raised from now to November: What will you do?
