Finally Election Day

November 2, 2010

I am so tired of political ads on television and political calls at home.  I am glad that election day is finally here if for no other reason than I am ready for a break from the commercials and the calls.

I don’t pay attention to the ads.

I hang up on the calls.

They both still annoy me.

I did read something in the paper yesterday that bothered me.  A Republican leader stated that his two goals were “no compromise” after the election today, and to “win back the White House”.

I would like to suggest a different goal.

Work together with other elected officials to find ways to achieve the common good.

I can dream can’t I?

Campaign Crud

October 25, 2010

I am tired of attack ads.

I truly wish that candidates would campaign on what they have done, and what they would try to do if elected.  There are sufficient differences in political ideologies that if people would focus on the different approaches to solving problems then perhaps we could have constructive political interaction instead of half-truths, distorted reports and accusations.

Where do we want to go?

What is the best way to get there?

These are the things that we should be discussing in our electoral campaigns. I would enjoy that discourse.  As it is, I just want the campaign season to end.
