Well, since I'm fairly new at this, I am worried that I am  going to end up being a Debbie Downer, and keep writing about sad things or lecturing about bad behavior.  Honestly I want to write about something upbeat and funny and I promise I will.  But....I keep hearing comments, seeing comments, watching "bad behavior" and getting all riled up and then I want to write about it!  So here I go.....

As we enter into the heat of the campaign season and get closer to those primary elections, I can not only feel the bad blood, I can actually smell it.  Hey, I know it's politics and you gotta do what you gotta do but can't we do it without being mean spirited, vindictive and down right nasty?  Obviously eveyone who is running has the same goal - to win...and with that, one hopes, is the desire to win for the right reasons.  So, let's give everyone the benefit of the doubt and assume all the candidates have the welfare of the town at heart.  It is only natural that the different candidates will have different visions of how to make Middletown a good place to be.  And it is only human nature, that we will not all agree on which of these ideas are the best ones.  Okay, so that being said,  I think it's important that opinions be voiced with respect, that arguements be backed up with thorough knowledge of the issues, and that criticisms be about the policies and ideas put forth by the candidates not about the personal lives of the candidates themselves.  It is important that people express their concerns, but really do we have to use pejorative terms to describe people; do we have to make it so personal?  Can't we make our point with elequence and dignity instead of slurs and mudslinging.  I know we see this everywhere from small towns and cities, to the national stage but that doesn't make it okay.  Yes of course there is behavior that requires negative consequences and there are illegal acts that warrent punishment but there is also the very general  act of making mistakes, some bigger than others.  I'm not saying we shouldn't be informed about mistakes made by politicians, of course we should!  But we should also give the voting public some credit for making good decisions based on plain hard facts not innuendo and suspicion. We should all be as informed as possible about any candidate we do or do not vote for but I hope we cast our ballot based on our own good sense and not the rumor mongers and gossip machines.  Hate to get all religious on anyone but seems that someone pretty important once said, " Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone".
