Dear Voter: Avoid the Negative!

There is a dark cloud swaying over us, and it is full of negative crap! Everywhere I go, there is this continuum of negativity in most of the campaigns. What has happened to us?  This great need to insult, name call and make accusations coming from both sides of the aisle. It has gotten to the point where I have stopped listening, reading media, and frankly, I am fed up with those that are drawn to read about it with an uncontrollable need to chime in. Where do you draw the line until you decide to stop? There is this vacuum, and we are drawn to it like a magnet to metal.

This morning I came across a candidate’s letter on Facebook addressed to his opponent stressing to keep his family out of the negative comments. You know what? He is right! Why should all involved be made a target of negative political ads and campaigns? The family of candidates should not be used in negative mudslinging from the opposition. I commend the candidate for voicing concerns about his political race. There was another instance with another candidate where a mail-out was sent. It showed the platform and off to the side was a stated negativity about the candidates opponent. Why? Not necessary!

For those candidates that believe going negative will pay off? I don’t think so! Food for thought.

Yours Truly,

A Fellow Voter
