The man, the myth, the legend Pat Sajak from Wheel Of Fortune had some very funny, but also very intense, words for voters going into the November midterm elections. He said, “I would encourage you to vote next month, but if you need a TV game show host to remind you, then you probably shouldn’t.”
That’s when the wheels fell off and the laughter took over!

The meaning behind Sajak’s message is that he wants people to vote because they are involved, invested, and paying attention. My take on his midterm voting reminder is that anyone who doesn’t know much about what’s going on, the current political climate, or anything about the candidates they’re deciding the future of, then maybe voting is a bad idea.
Then again, there are people who will say voting is not ever a bad idea, but they are wrong. How can someone who doesn’t know anything about the candidates they’re voting on make an informed decision?
Sajak’s other message, although not said, but hidden between the lines is that people need to get involved and figure out what’s going on. People need to do their research and have meaningful discussions about who they vote for during the midterm elections.
Sajak is right – if you need a gameshow host to remind you, then maybe voting isn’t for you.
If you’re not up to date on all that’s going on, then read your local news and remain objective.
Spend too much time on mainstream media and the liberal news outlets might forget to tell you about all the good things going on.
Take a long hard look and use facts. Forget about emotions and feelings.
Focus your voting efforts on facts and what’s really best for your local community.
If Pat Sajak knocks on your door, then there’s going to be a problem!
You might have to solve a puzzle or two.
