It is amazing that our Presidential Candidates will use scare tactics to attempt to get votes. Even though this is completely common place it lacks integrity. Why should you have to scare the populous into voting for you? If a candidate has nothing to stand on and no strength of character, then why would anyone wish to vote for them? Perhaps no one would and they know it, so they attempt to use fear as a control mechanism.
Some day the population and society at large must stand up to this non-sense and just say know to these people. Then maybe we can get some real folks to run for office. As it stands no great people would wish to run for office because if we as a nation allow this to continue and the mass media hysteria to ensue, we get nothing more than the same in the future and quite frankly that is not good enough.
When a candidate attempts to scare us into voting for them; that is when America should turn their backs on them, man or woman. We cannot continue these political charades or podium pushing politicians that tear down our society. We live in the greatest nation ever created in the history of mankind and we do not need any politician who tells us otherwise or scares us into some bizarre line of thinking to follow their lead.
Either someone is a leader or they are unfit to lead and we have had too few of the former and too many of the latter and it is time we woke up to the fact that we are being played. Let's turn these folks off and deject them. Our nation is more important than falling for such rhetoric.
