Any way we can reset this whole election process?
Wow! I can't remember an election that turns my stomach like the present one and the first real election I paid attention to was Nixon/Kennedy. (a few years ago) It is not just mud being thrown, it is stuff that smells a lot worse. I am not picking a side to criticize, it is BOTH. BOTH campaigns stink. Worse than (plug in your most obnoxious smell)
And we, the American public probably deserve ALL we are getting. We've allowed this filth to enter our world through radio, television, print and now the internet. Think of what Trump was taped saying and then compare it to the sitcoms during the "family" hours on TV. Family hours, what is that?
Most of us have probably forgotten when controversial programs were not allowed to air (if at all) during the hours of 7-10. Words a lot tamer than we have now were forbidden.
They make "humor" of everything sexual, they show murder, lying deception without ramifications and make it look like this is our normal society. Is it? We've discussed the morals of TV before, so maybe I should not be shocked when it comes to roost in our election process?
Here is another question. When did it become OK to tape private conversations? Remember the book by George Orwell "1984"? Big brother is watching? I thought it was illegal to tape conversations without permission of those being taped (unless you are the government with a court order, of course). Has that law disappeared?
I find myself getting angry every time a new revelation surfaces, again, from both sides. Angry at who? Me, you, us, for letting this society degrade to this point. There is no way either side winning will make America great again. If we don't demand, decency, honor, integrity from or public leaders, we deserve what we get.
Where is the Obama/Clinton Reset Button. We NEED it now. Republicans AND Democrats need to reset and get some candidates with positive attributes.
