This 2012 Bashing of Every Candidate Diminishes America!
Can't we focus on what we like about our candidates?
What kind of changes do we really want?
By the time we are all done bashing the candidates, will it be any wonder if the first post-election polls show low ratings for the 2012 candidate we finally elect?
Let's start talking about what we LIKE about candidates, and then choose the best one!
No wonder so few Americans actually go to the polls and vote after the bashing and smashing is all over! An Aunt once told me the same thing your relatives have told you: "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."
Is it somehow elevating "the wrong guy" if you say something nice about Governor Romney, President Obama, Senator Santorum, Governor Huntsman, Speaker Gingrich, Governor Perry, Congressman Ron Paul, or all of them?t
Philandering, adultery, lying, cheating, and all the other sins will come to the surface as we are seeing; but bashing for the sake of bashing is beneath the dignity the Office of the President of the United States of America deserves.
I want to say why I like Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman: contrary to all the bashing, they are just human beings as you and I are. They are both honest, chaste, and devoted to their families. I admire them for their faithfulness to their religious beliefs, their hard work,and their faithfulness to their heritage as Americans including the rights of all men and women to practice their own religious beliefs. I believe that is why many other Americans will cast their votes for them.
We could do (and have done) worse.
Eligible voters who don’t exercise their right to vote in 2012 are missing out on the best chance they have to participate in making this important national decision.
The challenge today is to express why you will vote FOR a particular candidate. That tells us more than telling us why you will not vote for the other candidates. It also shows respect for the highest office in our elected government.
