Political Debates or Has the World Gone Mad?
I ran across the above picture somewhere on the "world-wide web" and it really struck a chord. Maybe because I had recently watched a Presidential debate. I guess I should say tried to watch one. I only lasted an hour.
I want to know about the candidates. But when they start talking negative about their opponents, ridiculing how each other looks, being a bully to others, it just really sickens me. And people wonder why there is a bullying problem at schools. It seems as a nation we thrive on this behavior.
Reality shows abound our air waves. Gossip, shaming, name-calling, etc., are common and the nastier the people are to each other, the more the ratings go up.
I just want to discover the candidate, review their past history and make my own decision. I can make up my own mind. Your negative campaign, your name-calling, your shaming only confirms to me that you are not a candidate I would want to run our country.
Do you like this type of behavior? How do you decide where your vote will go?
