ELECTION: Message for all candidates

If I could talk to all the candidates, and if they would listen, I would like to tell them something very important to the voters: We do not care if you like your opponent or not. What we want to know is what you stand for and what you will do for me, my family and my country.

A product that is good can stand on its own merit. If you are the best person for the office, then tell me why. And be honest. I am sick to death of the smears and mud-slinging. That will get you nowhere.

If you want my vote, tell me about you. I am looking for the best “product,” and all the back-stabbing and mud-slinging tells me is that you are not the one I want to vote for. Enough already!
