Opinion: Choose wisely this election year

In an election year in which the two major political parties have given us the likes of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, I believe that it is more important than ever to maintain a balance of power in the federal government.

The best way to achieve this balance is by voting for a congressional majority from the party opposite that which is most likely to win the presidency.

The founders gave us a precious gift in the system of checks and balances built into our Constitution, and I believe that it is important that we take advantage of it when confronted with the choices available this election year.
