Ring, Rang, Rung
Our state is having its primary on Tuesday; then more than likely there will be a run off election - only to be followed by The Election in November.
The more information our household gathers on the hopefuls, the more cynical I become. Except for extreme opinions on a few subjects, most of the candidates sound basically the same. They all want what is best for us (bless their hearts), a chicken in every pot, and a bright and promising future for our children (almost sounds like the Miss America contestant's replies). Other than "I have a plan," I have not heard much detail how these promises will materialize.
I have never understood the tactic but it seems that all candidates are using robo calls to the max. Do they honestly believe that I am going to vote for someone because I have received another annoying phone call? Frankly I will be be glad when it is all over and we can put the elections aside for a while and my phone will not be ringing incessantly.
I think you get the idea.
There is another idea I have about voting.
Perhaps it would be easier to narrow my list by only
including candidates that do not make robo calls!
If you, any loved ones or any friends are running for political office, I hope a good sense of humor is one of your attributes.
