Do More Than Talk About It…

   One’s philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes… and the choices we make are ultimately our responsibility.

Eleanor Roosevelt

 

When politicians get up and talk, they talk about what they’re going to fix, but never how they’ll fix it. That’s why they sound so good going into office, and look so bad coming out of office. Actions speak louder than words, and so when you look into somebody’s history, it shows a lot. Most of the people we have running for president all have shady backgrounds in their recent past. None of us want another Richard Nixon or Bill Clinton, who hid things from us. In my opinion, we’ve lost all the respectable candidates in the current election process.  They don’t have any solutions for the problems that we are facing, just talk.  Any of the candidates with ideas for solutions aren’t voted in. The ones that are voted in are the ones that have new ideas to make other things more complicated. Like Obama, he comes in and decides to make a complicated healthcare situation; what did that fix? We don’t really need new systems; we need solutions to the ones that are building up and are all crashing down from the last few years.  We all like to start new things, but we need to finish the ones that are unfinished.

    I think it would help if we did away with debates, since they’ve devolved into nothing more than offensive and defensive name calling, and replace them with televised town halls.

    I’d also love it if we banned political ads altogether. It would force people to go to the candidates’ websites to see the details of their plans for fixing things.

    Maybe get rid of political affiliations as well, so people would vote for the positions they like best, rather than just blindly voting for their “team.”

      I agree; the debates should be discussing what they’re going to fix, not attacking each others character. I’m getting tired of party affiliation as well. Especially the republican party.
