My Name is John Smith, and I Approve of This Message! Sound familiar?
OK already! I have heard them all – at least a dozen or more times. If you watch any TV these days then you will have heard them too! Here in Pennsylvania it’s Governor Tom Wolf being challenged by Scott Wagner. Lou Barletta running against the incumbent Senator Bob Casey (not to mention all the other candidates running for office this fall). And what gets me about the average political ad is that each candidate spends their time telling you why you should NOT vote for the other guy! So here is my message to the candidates. “Please don’t tell me why I should not vote for your opponent. Tell me why I should vote for YOU!” (Are you with me on this?)
I hope that when Election Day arrives on Tuesday, November 6th, you will go out and vote. Don’t allow all the mud slinging to keep you from the polls. But before you go, do some homework. Find out where the candidates stand on the issues. Electing our public officials is indeed a great privilege (and responsibility) that we enjoy here in this country. So get involved in the process. It is worth the effort!
Thanks for stopping by,
