Party of the which part?

I have been writing about LIES and how you, if you want to see who is lying, must be able to look up the truth because, as I have quoted Fox Mulder, the X-Files, “the truth is out there”.

Sometime when I look at the political ads I must ask the question : how stupid to they think I am?  Then I see something like this, I will clue you in soon, and wonder : just how stupid are they?

With all the discussion about child predators, people confessing to crimes, and other things that you can find on Facebook, wouldn’t you think that people would be carefull about what they put on their page?

I guess not.

You would think that an ad that talks about Republican women for Obama would pick Republican Women…  so look at the Facebook page for Maria Ciano here, and see how Republican she really is.

Then again maybe it is just too hard to find a real Republican Woman who plans to vote for Obama, and they have to pick one, poor choice, who “lets the cat out of the bag” on Facebook..

Now there might be some truth to the matter, I mean about some Republican Women who plan to vote for Obama, but, it ain’t in this ad.

Sure, most of the political advertising seem to be filled with partial truths, or outright lies but, why does this leave us with the unpleasant feeling that we are really just voting for the “lesser of two evils”?

What happened to the day when we felt like we could vote for the better man?

For example of the “Better Man” theory : between Bill Nelson, a democrat with an excellent personal history, or Connie Mack IV, with a history of drunken fights and road rage, I would vote for …ta da… Bill Nelson and the man I would rather represent me..  Leave Connie Mack to the Beer Hall…

It is true that I might not like all of Bill Nelson’s politics but, sometimes it is the “person” you vote for and NOT the “party”.

People who vote a strict party line and don’t question their lies, are part of the reason we have to wonder which is the lesser of the two evils.

I would like to see the day when they tell us why we should vote for them and not why we should not vote for the other guy.  People who really care who they vote for should make them prove they are the better person for the job.

Try this… the next time you see your Representative try to imagine that he is YOU…  Would you like yourself?

Thanks,

That Joe Guy..
