Okay everyone, I'm not talking about the candidates, so no bashing here. I'm sick of listening to politicians on both sides of the fence. I'm going to tell you what I think needs to be done during elections.
1: 3 months of campaigning maximum before vote
2: No Super Pac's (Has anyone thought about what the money given to super pac's might accomplish if used to pay down the debt?)
3: Candidates shouldn't have to raise money and shouldn't receive donations from anyone
4: 1 free add for each candidate per month for 3 months (networks donate the time)
5: Three debates for presidential candidates and one debate for vice presidential candidate
6: A URL should be posted verifying the truth of all candidates so the voters can have easy access to find out the truth if they don't want to check out facts for themselves. This is a necessity since when listening to the candidates you only get the partial truth from any of them. Part of the reason is because 2 minutes isn't enough time to explain anything.
We should respect all of our candidates who run for any office because the jobs are not easy, and I can't imagine anyone wanting the jobs unless they love our country. Oh sure, there is corruption everywhere, but most really want to make things better.
Remember folks, democracy isn't perfect but it's a lot better than many other governments.
Give me your opinions of our election campaigns, but there will be no bashing of candidates here on either side.
Have a great week, and I'll see you next Sunday.
