I find it quite sad and disturbing that at a the drop of a hat, any one of us could blurt out something negative about the Presidential candidates. On the other hand, how many of us know any of the good things each candidate has accomplished? Why does it seem that we always have to pick the lesser of evils when voting? Why can’t we just get the facts…including positive ones?
This way of campaigning turns me off to paying any attention at all. It is this way of campaigning that confuses the common voter or makes them not vote at all. Perhaps if we could see what the candidates were like, really, instead of what they want to be portrayed as, then things would be different.
All these people call themselves Christians…the candidates that is. And yet, I don’t think God would approve of winning by simply making your opponents appear to be worse than you.
I will pray for our country and that we would again begin to care about what the real issues are, not just what we see in an advertisement. Or on the color of skin, or on a person’s gender, or what not. Those are not issues. They say nothing about how a particular person will shape the country’s future for the next four years. And to even have these candidates’ race and gender be the main focus shows me that we haven’t come that far as a country. If race and gender were no longer a criteria in Presidency, why all the hype? I surely would not want to win just because I was a woman. I would want to win because of who I was and where I stood on the issues.
Just some things to think about… 🙂
