A post about Non-Politics

First of all, don't forget to enter my Country Bob's giveaway. You have to post a comment on this post by 11:59pm tonight (Friday).

Now, I am not going to talk about politics. It is boring, isn't it? Well, it's boring for me to listen to. Actually, more like, all the arguing gives me a headache. Like my kids arguing.

I'd like to tell the Deomcrats and the Republicans, You better play nice. Don't make me come over there!! I would like to see the candidates just promote their own issues and leave the other guys/gals alone. Talk positively about themselves and just be above all the negative talk. Why should this be so hard? It seems to me like all the candidates can do to make themselves seem worthy is to prove how unworthy their opponents are.

So, Here's what I'm proposing to all bloggers out there: If you are going to post about politics, write a post in FAVOR of the candidate you like. Talk positively about his/her platform. Try very hard to avoid making any negative comments about the opposing ticket.

It will sure make the blogging environment less nasty!

Thanks to all who decide to participate!

Thank you...I feel the same way. I keep thinking that anyone with one ounce of intelligence knows that when one says something bad about the other, it's not the whole truth, it's just a tid bit of truth if any at all...so what, they think we are stupid...

It get's tougher to know what they really stand for, when all they do is tell us what they think the other one stands for...ugh.

That would absolutely help to make the political climate more bearable. I hate that it's become more about sound bites with no one really saying anything anymore. I'm with you. State your issues, talk passionately about them, leave the other side alone. As I type this there's a hate ad on TV right now. grrrrr.

I'm with you. I want to hear positive things and please, whoever you are, stop sending emails bashing the other guy's program.

I just want to cover my ears and shut my eyes anytime anything political comes up. I hear ya...it's like I tell my kids. "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."

Good point.
Well taken.

You are right about this; clearly I tend to dwell on the snarkier side of life.

I will attempt to be more of the Good Witch if I feel like saying anything at all...

:D
