Our system is pretty good, and the voters are pretty wise. I have seen people change when actually elected to office. Things look a lot different when you're on the inside looking out. Our nation, state and county have done pretty darned good over the years led by all kinds of people.
Do I care about the final outcome? You bet I do. I feel very strongly about many candidates and issues. Some people I really want to win are running in this year's election. There are even some on the ballot I hope will be defeated. The morals and antics of some of the candidates have been disgusting, and I hope the voters can see through them. I've seen more negativism in this election than I have for twenty years.
There are lots of close races this year, from the top of the ballot to the bottom. If there ever was a year when "every vote counts," this is the year. I plan to stay up late tonight, awaiting the returns. A few of the races, including the one for President, will probably not be decided until long after I have gone to bed. We should know by morning.

Well, Doc Rees taught me not to bleed over issues, even though over the years there have been many contentious issues I felt really strongly about. There are times when I thought the sky would fall if certain candidates weren't elected. And there have been times when I have been proven wrong.

I got some valuable advice once that I've tried to remember over the years. I was serving as a freshman legislator in the Utah Senate. A colleague in the row in front of mine became a lifelong friend. He was Doctor Stanley Rees, who was representing Sanpete and Sevier Counties from his home in Salina.

As I write this, it's Tuesday Election Day.
So tonight, I'm planning on watching and listening to the returns, after gorging myself on the outstanding Election Day Dinner sponsored by St. Pius X Church. I plan on winning a few and losing a few when the outcomes are finalized. That's the way it goes. And it goes on, and on and on.
years, I have felt so strongly about election outcomes that I thought for sure the nation, state or local government bodies would go down the tube if my favored candidates didn't get elected. I guess I've learned to have a lot of faith in the system over the years. Most politicians, when elected, do pretty admirable jobs. After all, it is a system we in the U. S. invented, and it's a pretty darned good one.

I Omega Seamaster Co-axial worried all night when John F. Kennedy was elected. Two years later I cried when he was assassinated. I thought the state would go to hell when Scott Matheson was elected the first time. Over an eight year span I developed so much respect for him as a governor and as a man that I wept again when he died at an early age from cancer he probably contracted as a downwinder in Southwestern Utah when the atomic testing program was going full swing. Adrien and I flew to Salt Lake City to personally pay our last respects when he died.
was a wise man. He told me, "Get as worked up as you want to over issues," he said. "Debate actively. Let your emotions show. But if your side doesn't prevail, don't bleed over it."
us hope that legal maneuvering and voting irregularities won't keep us waiting for days or weeks or months. The election of 2000 was bad enough and we as a nation don't need to make it a habit.
Am I going to lose sleep over the outcome? The answer is no. In many past Omega Speedmaster Professional Brown Leather Strap
Doc Rees was a unique legislator. He was smart as a whip, and became my close professional counselor on legislation pertaining to health care. He left an active profession as a physician and surgeon back in Salina. He had brought half the population of those two counties into the world during his years of practice. He advised his obstetrics patients that while the legislature was in session, that they should schedule their deliveries for weekends. And they did. Doc would make laws all week long, then go home on weekends and deliver babies. I told you he was smart.
