Thats right, politics

 So I am not very into politics. I am waiting until the contest is down to 2 candidates before I really make an effort to do some digging and find out who I like. But I will say, if there was ever a candidate who never said something nasty about his/her opponent, they would have my vote. It almost wouldn't even matter what they stood for. If they had enough integrity to run their campaign without trying to make another person look bad I could stand behind that. Show the country what you will do and what you stand for. Why would you want to win by pushing someone else down? It doesn't make any sense. And I am sick of those student "clean elections" commercials where people just say hello in different ways. Who thought that was a good idea? And does that mean my tax dollars for the Clean Election Act went to pay for that commercial, I sure hope not, although it does look pretty low budget. And why doesn't the Clean Elections Act spill over to more than just campaign funding? I would like the entire campaign to be clean. There is my ignorant stand on politics. May the best man/woman win. Note: I have not decided on a candidate yet so don't judge me.

Aw man, I was just sitting here thinking "I hope Nicole has chosen a candidate so I can judge her." Now I can't. Thanks for nothing!

And I have often thought that I'd vote for the first candidate that promised nothing! I get so sick of them promising things that aren't even in their power to do! There is Congress, don't they know?

Luckily I think we'll have two candidates with, at the very least, some integrity. The same can't be said for their respective parties, and the likes of FOX News. People like Rush Limbaugh, and the party officials who feed him talking points, do the real damage, filling up the news cycle with the Jeremiah Wrights of the world and rumors of Barack being a Muslim.
