Finally next Tuesday we can put (hopefully) the election behind us. It’s been brutal. We are a battleground state. The local elections are important. They too are the nastiest I’ve seen. Accusations and rebuttals. Only someone dedicated to research knows what the truth is.
If you are an intelligent citizen of the US you need to vote. Here are some things to keep in mind.
You don’t have to LIKE them. You are not selecting a drinking buddy and you will never be invited to one of their parties. Vote for someone who shares your values and beliefs.
Don’t be swayed by the noise. There are so many accusations flying around. As someone once said, “Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.” I am astounded at people who believe memes they saw on Facebook and take it for the gospel truth.
That, my friends, is called strategy. Making last minute accusations can sway the weaker voters. Everyone has skeletons in their closet, even you. People like Mother Teresa do not run for political posts.
Go back to the party platforms. That’s where you find the information.
If the president and Congress are of different parties, it doesn’t matter who is president, nothing will get done. There have already been threats about not approving Supreme Court justices. Seriously? They need to grow up.
For months we have been subjected to political ads that call everyone corrupt. Consecutive ads. Lots of consecutive ads. The same ads.
We record most of the programs but we watch the news and Jeopardy live. We have resorted to the mute button. It’s that or tossing the TV.
On the lighter side –
I can’t believe I am saying this but I am looking forward to the return of “normal” ads.
Could there be a new drug for erectile dysfunction? I don’t know. Haven’t seen normal ads in months.
Or maybe for a disease that I don’t yet know I have. What have drug companies been doing with all that advertising budget? They haven’t cut the price of drugs!
I wonder how Flo from the insurance company is doing and the little gecko with the Australian (or maybe New Zealand) accent.
Does Subaru or Budweiser have new puppy ads? (I sure could use one!)
I am looking forward to a return to normal or at least the new normal.
Get out and vote!
