I have become more and more disappointed in our elections over the years.
There was a time when one could base a decision in the voting booth on a simple question: “Who flung dung?” It has now become so much more complicated than that: “Who flung how much dung?”
There was in our history a time when men who had other professions became involved in politics, but it was never thought to be a profession in itself. Those men staked their “sacred honor” on upholding the right as they saw it and on honesty and truthful, upright living.
Does anyone in this current crop of professional politicians have any honor at all? If the man running for office does, it is totally obscured by campaign managers and speech writers and “staff” of every ilk.
If other honest folks are as disappointed as I am in the way campaigns are run, then it may be no wonder why so many people don’t vote. I will vote. It is just that I feel no confidence that those for whom I vote are true and faithful to the voters.
