I’m so excited about the upcoming elections! NOT!!! The public is inundated with smear tactics of one politician against the other. Talk about negativity! Maybe you will see a statement or comment about how someone plans to eliminate government controlling health care, but not one person has any kind of solution. It is a pathetic state of affairs. I really want to believe that there is a politician with some fiber of authenticity that would launch new programs to stimulate jobs in this country. The machine is out of control and the banks are so powerful that maybe even another scandal is about to unfold…do they even hold the notes on all the foreclosed properties in this country? The politicians in this upcoming election look like a bunch of blabbering, talking heads with no forum of substance. If one candidate would try to forget his or her running mates and say something of meaning and hope to the American public, they would get my vote.
