From Mark Abbott, Commerce Township:
Did anyone watch the debates last week? Two men were lobbying for your vote by telling lies, stretching the truth, and trying to deceive you. It took factcheck.org a good four or five pages to decipher what the actual truth was from this debate.
I don’t mind anyone being a conservative or liberal, but what bothers me is the thought that you might actually believe in your candidate. The understanding that “truth, honesty and real concern for people” gets one nowhere in politics just might persuade you of the reality of their true motives.
If you look at the four biggest expenditures in our government — social security, defense spending, public assistance, and Medicare — and don’t come up with the conclusion that these have to be drastically cut for things to work, then you’re simply not being honest with yourself.
