Opinion: Voters need to pay attention to candidate warning signs

Missed warning signs are often discovered after natural or man-made disasters.

Given the number of shootings with multiple victims in recent years, investigators and the general public have discovered that often warning signs were in plain sight, but fatally ignored.

The current presidential campaign presents us with myriad warning signs from some of the candidates.

From a dramatic excess of ego that borders on the comic, to mystical facial expressions that hide bizarre beliefs and a fundamental ignorance of American government, the public is actually being given clear warning signs.  Some of these candidates are anything but qualified to be president.

Informed voters need to pay attention.  Pay attention to the candidates, with what they say and don’t say.  But also pay attention to the people who support them, and the political party to which they belong.

All provide ample warning signs.  Voters need ensure that the warning signs indicating future poor performance or even potential disaster, are not missed.
