I have a question for you. Should a candidate for office blow the whistle on his opponent on the premise of keeping the voters informed?
We see this all the time during political campaigns. It has become standard operating procedure.
Most of the time thereâ€™s just enough truth so that it is not a complete lie. Of course, itâ€™s a political campaign so no one gives it that much thought. This sort of thing is expected.
Sadly enough, most people get their information about candidates from their campaign ads. Who comes across better on TV or who has better signs. Itâ€™s just too much trouble to do background work even with more information available to the average person than ever before. What with the internet, radio, TV and newspapers.
But back to the original question. Should a candidate blow the whistle on his opponent on the premise of keeping the voters informed?
Thatâ€™s one youâ€™re going to have to answer for yourself. I know how I feel about it but this is America and your opinion is just as valuable as mine. See you at the polls.
