During these election campaigns, that seem to go on forever,
none of us should take anything too serious.
If we find ourselves encouraged by a campaign speech, we
have either been taken-in by a personality of the moment, or
on the rare occasion, the speaker says what we like to hear.
But if we actually take any of it seriously, I can only suggest
that we're entrusting our money to the wrong bank.
If, on the other hand, we find ourselves irritated by a speech,
I suggest we seek out the man with the big couch in his office,
and seek help.
All of it is just so much cheap rhetoric, and the politicians all
know that they can promise anything during a campaign, and
be held accountable for very little, later.
Typically, stuff posted on these boards is not expected to change
anyone's mind about anything, or even support or defeat a candidate's
position, these postings, in large measure, are no more or less
then flaming and trolling to see who will respond. At least if
the author is honest about his submissions.
The ONLY time we should take politics serious is in private,
inside the voting booth, and hope that we have seen through
all the smoke of the campaign, and KNOW the persons we're
voting into office.
So join me in enjoying the campaign. It is the most economical
and amusing past time available.
