It's Politics as usual...

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

I was watching a debate the other night and it is reason to be scared.  No one was wrong about anything.  Things were pointed out about all candidates and everyone denied the statements, even tho much of it has been a  proven fact.

It would be refreshing if just once a candidate said...Yes I did do that and I am sorry or I was wrong.  That person would be held in much higher esteem and may even get my vote for trying to be honest.  Let's face it, we have all had a dummy attach of one kind or another. 

Watching the discussions I get this feeling...

 ...like I am in this outhouse.

The more I listen this year the more the incumbents will lose my vote!!!

I expect lies but alot of the time they don't even answer the question.  I've swore off watching anything political the rest of the year...too depressing.

The sad part about the election being over is that many people will be laid off.

Someone asked me who to vote for this election, and I told them vote out all the incumbents.  Simple.

Too bad politicians can't be held to a standard of honesty...  Truth in Advertising laws would be great for them...

Laura...I do remember when politics were fun.  It is back when a person's word still was worth something.

How can you tell when a politician is lying? His/her lips are moving. Vote out the politicians, vote in the statesmen/women and true public servants.

Pretty much the truth.  Washington has been pooping on us for years now and it has nearly destroyed the entire economy.

I have only 2 incumbants that are getting my vote.  both are just finishing their first terms and their opponets are the clowns we got rid of last election.  This includes even local elections

You make a valid point (and I love the graphic, it is so true). When "Honest Abe" comes around, he will get my vote :-)!
