Voting Rubric

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.” John Adams

I created this rubric several years ago based on the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States and the Ten Commandments of the Bible.

I choose the candidate that, based on their education, experience, and expertise, is most able to…

Form a more perfect union: i.e. does not lie, boast, or speak ill of others.

Establish justice: i.e., does not cheat, steal, or defraud others.

Insure domestic tranquility: i.e., does not covet, envy, or promote jealousy of others.

Provide for the common defense: i.e., does not abuse, harass, or oppress others.

Promote the general welfare: i.e., does not place personal gain above the law, the land, and others.

Secure the blessings of liberty to all Americans and to their posterity: i.e., does not put self or self-interests above God and God’s commandments.

Notes:

  • It is usually easier to see the “don’ts” and the “dos.”
  • If a person cannot govern himself/herself, he/she cannot govern a nation.
