I’m Sooooo Over This….

October 3, 2012

I’m soooo over the constant barrage of hate. Ahead of tonight’s first presidential debate, I have to wonder if we will ever be able to see the forest for the trees.  The presidential race has become far too divisive, confusing and misleading—ON BOTH SIDES.  The danger here is that many good, common sense Americans, Americans who are just trying to sort things out and make an informed decision on what’s right for the country, are becoming so frustrated that they are “opting out” of this election entirely.  They feel like they can’t make a difference—they can’t cut through all the BS.  The point is, a voter must get the facts (nearly impossible these days), make an informed decision and then make his or her vote count. 

But the presidential election is only one race.  There are so many other offices locally and statewide that are more important than ever for all of us.  It is my hope that all this hateful presidential rhetoric does not turn off these voters to the point that they don’t go to the polls at all.  That would be the real tragedy.  Don’t let all the propaganda smokescreens prevent you from doing your civic duty.  No one stands alone, we are all in this together, like it or not. 

It’s still our country, let’s take it back.

  1. Here, here!! You are very much on point. I think when push comes to shove, many will be there on voting day. I just hope they know what and whom they’re voting for… just saying. :-), Susan Cooper from LinkedIn BHB

    Bill, you are right about the divisiveness. However, I belief the people have the power to change the political climate if they choose to. Voters have the power to demand that politicians take the high road; but they are not willing to. Not sure what it’s going to take to make that happen though.

  4. Thank you Susan and Henry–I hope your vote will votes will make a difference!!
