Dear Voter: Beware of the Big Bad Wolf!

Leave a comment


“The wolf is carnivore incarnate and he’s as cunning as he is ferocious; once he’s had a taste of flesh then nothing else will do.”
Angela Carter

I am reaching out to you this morning to call out! Try and cipher through the negativity dealt with candidates that are undeserving of these attacks, “beware of the big bad wolf!” Beginning with the presidential election,  Hillary vs. Trump campaign. From the beginning, ads kept coming about Hillary’s emails and Trumps tax returns and taking it to the extreme blaming Hillary for her husband’s indiscretion? Whether you are cheering for Trump or Hillary, I say look beyond the crap flung!

As a resident of Osceola County, I see the negativity in full swing with many of the local, state candidates. It is deplorable, disgusting the methods used in attempts to take down an opponent, and individual opposing candidates hiding behind political action committees. It seems like everything is up for grabs, the more sensational, the more votes gained! Those doing the negative ads may think so, but I believe good prevails over evil! It is no surprise that the focus by those aspiring, opposing candidates is to get the unattainable brass ring for those positions of power. Is it worth destroying your opponent’s reputation and family to get it? Personal attacks are not to come into the picture no matter what!

Advice to the opposing candidates running for office and have resorted to negativity? It is a sign of insecurity, desperation and not showcasing a platform worth considering. If you have a stable, secure platform, there is no need for flinging negativity towards your opponent because your platform will speak for itself in the end.

Food for thought!
