The United States of America is a government of the people, by the people, and for the people. We are blessed to live in the greatest country in the world where we choose our leaders and the direction we want our country to go every election. Our vote is our voice and it counts.
This election has been more polarizing than any other previous election and has further divided our country. No matter what the outcome is, half of the country will be upset and disappointed.
But we cannot forget that at the end of the day, we are more than our political beliefs. Our fellow Americans are not our enemies just because they have a different opinion than we do. Our neighbors are still our neighbors and an election doesn’t make the Oklahoma Standard disappear.
We can agree to disagree and continue to love one another. There will always be far more that unites us than divides us.
Every morning, I say, “love the people, love the call” and I truly mean it. I love our state, our country, and the people in it. As we move forward from this election, I encourage everyone to love the people and come together for the good of our country.
