One Nasty Election
This is one nasty election.
Forget about getting any real answers to questions of the economy, national security, healthcare, education, the environment, and so on.
No, instead we have candidates down in the dirty disparaging each other, fighting about what they said about the former Miss Universe and the like.
This is beyond utterly ridiculous!
While integrity and character of the utmost importance in choosing our elected officials and leaders, I think we need to differentiate between the life of reality television and an election.
The level of smear campaign, pulling out all the stops, seems to have never been greater.
The greed and lust for power has taken over all sensibilities, and the people of this country see it and are disgusted by it.
And to the rest of world, we must look like a complete bunch of imbeciles here.
Power has infected and corrupted our leaders and system putting them above the people and nation they govern rather than for them.
As to whether there is the slightest genuine concern for the welfare and future of the citizens of this great country — that is a complete roar of utter laughter and despair. ;-)
