If you can't say something nice...
You should always listen to what your momma says you know. If you can't say something nice, keep your yap shut. Especially in politics.
If you haven't noticed, there's a pretty big election coming up this year. And so far I have no clue why I should vote for either one of these yahoos. I've heard an earful of why I shouldn't vote for the other candidate though.
It makes me ill that every time I turn on the news or check Facebook, there are pictures of Romney in a KKK outfit, or Obama looking like Hitler. Come on people. How exactly is this helpful, to anyone? To swipe a line from Buddha, It's like poisoning yourself and hoping the other guy falls dead. Because make no mistake, this negative crap is poisoning you and everyone around you with hate. If you are a person that spreads these offensive and often false images and stories, do you realize how that makes you look?
So here's my impassioned plea to my friends and family on both the left and right... stop throwing poo at the opposing candidate. This goes for the campaigns themselves too. All we hear is how one of them is going to ruin America. I for one would like to hear what you- or your candidate of choice- are going to do to make America better.
Stop using bully scare tactics. Stop kicking the other guy in the nuts. If the only reason to vote is so the other guy doesn't win, we are screwed.
