Election day, 2014 is just six days away and to say I'll be glad when it's over would be an understatement. Politicians and politics make me sick and yet I understand it is part of a republic. It's just that the cesspools from which the advertising agencies draw their materials get raunchier with each election. Here are two examples.
In Illinois, Bruce Rauner is running against Pat Quinn, the current governor. Raunner has been attacking Quinn on his record and his broken promises. There has been nothing personal as far as I can tell. On the other hand, Quinn and his operatives are constantly attacking Rauner on his wealth and falsely accusing him of causing the deaths of some people in some nursing homes which were once owned by a company Rauner had invested money in. It's akin to accusing people who owned stock in Firestone of having caused the deaths of those killed in the SUV rollovers. It's typical Liberal politics!
In the race for Illinois senator between Dick Durbin and Jim Oberweise, the same mantra exist. Oberweise is cast as that rich billionaire [He's not, he's a millionaire!] who wants tax cuts for himself and tax increases for the middle class. Anyone who knows Liberals know that they are the ones who always increases taxes and they raise them on everyone. Nevertheless, the theme continues. Once again, Oberweise has gone after Durbin for his record in Washington and I have seen no personal attacks. Therefore, I ask, can the Liberals win any election based upon what they really believe or must they always attack the character of the person they are running against? I think not!
Anyway, being exposed to these vicious lies for the last year, I'm looking forward to nest Wednesday when these ads will be gone and the winners will be gloating and the losers licking their wounds while complaining how they just couldn't get their message out. Truth be known, they got their message out. The voters just didn't believe it!
