Simple Voting Recommendation

Somehow, it became obligatory during my lifetime for elected officials to wear lapel pins.  They are everywhere.  Most Congress members wear them.  

The pins used to be flags, but that no longer seems to be the trend.  Now, the pins are small gold or silver things (containing a logo or message that is not decipherable when viewed on TV).  I guess the pins are supposed to suggest the wearer is a Super Patriot or Super American of some sort.  What else are they supposed to suggest?

My voting resolution:  If a candidate or representative finds it necessary to impress me by wearing one of these pins, then I won't vote for him or her.  Simple.
