Preferred above others of the same kind or set: “the much used leveraged buyout as the weapon of choice” (Alison Leigh Cowan). [Middle English chois, from Old French, from choisir, to choose, from Vulgar Latin *causºre, of Germanic origin. See geus- below.] –choice“ly adv. –choice“ness n.

SYNONYMS: choice, alternative, option, preference, selection, election. Each of these nouns denotes the act, power, or right of choosing. Choice implies broadly the freedom to choose from a set, as of persons or things: The store offers a wide choice of fruits and vegetables. I had no choice—their decision was final. Alternative emphasizes a choosing between only two possibilities or courses of action: “An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. . . . Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do (Jane Austen). Option often stresses a power or liberty to choose that has been granted, as by an authority: The option lies between accepting the candidate the administration proposes and reconstituting the search committee. Preference indicates choice based on one’s values, bias, or predilections: We were offered our preference of wines. Selection suggests a variety of things or persons to choose from: Parents should exercise care in their selection of the movies their young children see. Election especially emphasizes the use of judgment in choosing: The university recommends the election of courses in composition and literature. See also Synonyms at delicate.

 Does that pretty much say it all? ..it does to me, ..but then I’m one of those rank and file, common sense guys that I’ve been blathering about since day one of beginning this Blog. A Blog, by the way, ..that I can now confirm has a following of ten readers, ..all family and friend, ..not all my family and not all my friends have confirmed that they are reading what I Blog as my initial out reach included, ..ie, ..E-mailing my Blog address, ..notification and invitation, was dispatched to twenty-nine souls, ..a return of just under 33 percent. Which of course I’m proud to say is above the national average for the percentage of American’s who (sadly) bother to go to the poles on election days to hire the people that squander their money.

 (W.A.M.) squander, 1. To spend wastefully or extravagantly; dissipate.

 We, ..”we the people,” ..which by the way for those of you who have yet to read the Preamble to our Constitution, it begins with those very words, ..we the people have a choice, in and with everything we do from the way we part our hair, to who we vote for on election day, ..I’m not here to tell you or anyone else how to vote, ..there are already enough people out there doing that, ..I’m here to simply tell you to think about who you want to vote for, ..want to hire, ..who “you” believe, (after adequate investigation) ..is an honest person, ..someone not unlike yourself, ..someone from the rank and file, ..not from the wealthy, aggressive and elite, ..”we” out number “them” a whole bunch to one, ..(in absence of actually doing the research) ..”we” have the  power, ..if you think about? ..it’s a no brainer, ..you know it, ..”they” know it, why else would anyone, ..that’s anyone “we” generally consider to be in their “right mind” would spend millions of dollars to get a job that pays a couple a hundred thousand, ..that’s not good business, ..unless of course there’s something else in the offing that “we” don’t know about? Which of course with all the redirect and information available to us through a multitude of media today, is, ..at least in my opinion, highly unlikely. ..not that you can trust all the redirect and information that’s out there, ..that’s why I’m here, ..not to supply you with “what’s right” ..but rather to get you to figure that out for yourself. Because what’s right for me, ..in no way has to be right for you. ..I’m simply one side of the coin, ..everything has two sides, ..otherwise we’d be the only folks on the planet, ..because there wouldn’t be another side of the earth. “Common sense,” ..something my father once told me I could count on, ..and so far it’s working real well. So listen to yourself, ..your “common sense” ..not what some radio, magazine or television blather implores you to do, ..make “your” voice heard, ..vote in 2012 ..give one of your “rank and file” neighbors a job…
