You Can Vote for Your Favorite States & Senators by Where You Invest Your Tourism & Business Travel Dollars!

Because of how close today’s senatorial vote was, there’s a good chance that half the country is annoyed with statements and votes cast by about half of the senators. You’ve been told you can “get even” when Election Day comes around but that’s only one way you can vote. There’s another way to vote that even non-citizens, alien resident green card holders, visitors and those who have no legal documentation to be or stay in the US and that is by voting with your dollars and your credit availability on your credit cards . . . and this go for all those in the US, not just one side or the other. This link
will take you to the list of how each senator voted and the state that that senator represents. Every state in this geographically beautiful country has a tourism sector that pumps hotel taxes and revue generated into the economy by people who have come to visit. If you want to make an immediate, pre-election/post-election impact on any state by casting your vote with your dollars, have a look at those who voted the way you would have wanted them to and, based on that, either plan to go there, have your reunion there, have your next meeting/convention/conference there, have your destination wedding there. . . or plan never to invest a penny of your travel dollars in that state. Some of the most vocal folks in this process come from states that rely on tourism as a generator of revenue to boost their economy from hotels, restaurants, cruise experiences, mountain retreats, attractions and great fresh foods, and, if they are near the ocean, seafood. You’ll either want to go there and buy as many products that come from that state to show your support or, in essence, cross that state off your “must visit” list as your economic vote with your wallet! It’s amazing what punching a place in its income stream will do to get their attention. It’s always nice to go places where you feel like people are on the same page with you so consider that in your travel plans and in what you buy that comes from those places. Support those places that are in line with your philosophies and interests. I started voting with my dollars as it relates to goods from China years ago. And, if you’re going to buy American, buy products from states whose senators support your philosophies, whatever they are. Sometimes, economic indicators get a whole lot more attention than votes at the ballot box and nobody can ‘meddle” in the casting of your dollar votes.
Pass it on. . . .and here’s the list of which senators voted yea and nay and the state that each represents. . . https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/10/06/us/politics/kavanaugh-live-vote-senate-confirmation.html
Plan you leisure, group, and business travel accordingly. Every destination has competitors that, essentially, offer the same thing. America is overrun with great coastal beaches, fabulous inns and hotels, wonderful restaurants, unique attractions and marvelous events. If you want to shift your yearly trip to a certain destination somewhere else, you can find other places that offer the same thing, go have a new experience, and let that state you’ve been loyal to know by your absence of spending money in that state that you’re not entirely pleased with the way they voted today. This certainly comes under my concept of “Intentional Travel.” Add one more value to your travel experiences by knowing you are supporting tourism in a place where you are traveling among friends.
