First, I must admit, I am mildly interested in politics. However, mildly turns into moderately during presidential and gubernatorial elections. I find the whole campaign process from start to finish artificial. Think of it this way, two individuals who we, as the people, barely know competing for the worlds attention. Then we must consider the two main parties, Democratic and Republican. While I am a registered Democrat, when asked, I tell everyone that I am Independent. Why? The reason I vote is based upon research about the candidate and not the overall party. I have been told numerous times to just vote "down the line" - no way! I understand the comradeship of being involved in a political party. I just cannot press a button based upon not knowing a single thing about the entire group.
Please forgive my boldness, but could you name a time when a politician told the entire truth all at once? We generally get bits and pieces or merely the positive aspects of the bill, law, or promise. Think of the presidential campaign commercials we are exposed to during election time. Bits and pieces or small blurbs of words that were truly spoken, however, the opposing parties do their best to take the original message out of context. They attempt to sway you to their direction based upon untrue ads. The following is an ad that was but together by the Romney campaign.
Please note, this video is for informational purposes, I am currently an undecided voter.
After watching this ad campaign and not watching the actual speech from President Obama; I would feel that Mitt Romney was my choice as it appears that President Obama is speaking negatively about small business owners. Do not be fooled, President Obama's campaign also develops ads to make Romney appear as the inferior candidate. These ads cannot be used to pick a presidential candidate. I suggest watch the presidential debates and conduct your own research.
I am going to open up the discussion to the audience now. What are your feelings about the presidential campaign commercials?
