I HATE Octobers nowadays... The election propaganda has ruined Octobers! Don't the polls and the consultants that make millions KNOW that I don't listen to their ads? "[So and so politician] has wasted you money for years..." "[So and so politician] is bad for our state..." "[So and so politician] will steal your children and eat them" "[So and so politician] is actually an alien from the planet Mars, disguised as a wealthy lawyer with a degree from a prestigious university" Ok, so maybe I over exaggerated, but you get the picture. I DON'T care about what anyone running for office has to say about their competition. I don't trust any of them, so why would I listen to them rant about their competition? I wold love to hear a politician come out and say something to the effect, "I think the people of the state of [choose your state] are actually very intelligent and can figure out who is worthy of this elected position and who isn't, if you were only given that chance. I care about this state and our future as a community. I understand that some of you may not agree with my politics, but I want to give you a chance to see for yourselves. Go to my website where I have listed exactly where I stand on every issue pertinent to this elected position. No bashing of the competition, just honest facts about me. I want the chance to represent you." I would be tempted to vote for a candidate who did this, JUST FOR DOING THIS! But, alas, this will not happen. So, we will have to continue to endure the mud slinging and trash that is campaign TV.
