The presidential campaign season has begun.  This nation is faced with Barack Obama for the left and Mitt Romney for the right.

The favorability of federal officials is pretty low, down to the single digits.   Local and state officials fare better.   The “do nothing Congress”, perhaps it might do more if ideas presented were acceptable to both the left and the right.

Political advertising has become predominantly negative.  Most ads are all about how bad the other person is and how amazing it is they were ever elected in the first place.  Based on this form of advertising, people do not get the information they need to make a choice.  Very rarely do we hear about the positions of a candidate, what they will “do” in office.   The rare occasions when we do hear what  the candidate plans to accomplish while in office, most times, are relegated to “campaign promises” which get taken with a grain of salt and are not really expected to be kept.

In this era of negativity, is it any wonder the favorability of the federal government is so low?

Scandal and missteps seem to follow politicians.  How often does an opponent say, this would never happen if I had been in office?   Is it any wonder there is so much “feigned outrage” when an office holder is caught up in a scandal? 

                 “Every post is honorable in which a man can serve his country.”

                  George Washington,  letter to Benedict Arnold, September 14, 1775.

Americans, fulfill part of your responsibility as citizens of this nation.  Choose your elected officials with care.  Choose the direction of this nation.  Choose those who would serve the nation and their constituents, not those seeking to accumulate power for themselves.

ALERT ALERT

Democrat Disaster! 53% Of Black Voters, 60% Of Other Minorities Say Liberal Media Trying To Help Democrats Impeach Trump

Thanks to President Donald Trump ALL Americans now know the mainstream fake-news media is an extension of the Democrat Party.

In a recent poll a majority of black voters and minority voters say the media is trying to help Democrats impeach President Trump.

And half of FOX News too, by the way.

CNS News reported:

Both black voters and other minority voters are more convinced than white voters that most reporters are trying to help impeach President Donald Trump, rather than report the news fairly – with a majority of each of the three groups holding that view – a new Rasmussen Reports survey reveals.

In the national voter survey, conducted November 12-13, 53% of all voters said most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump:

“When they write or talk about the impeachment effort, are most reporters trying to help impeach President Trump or block his impeachment? Or are most reporters simply interested in reporting the news in an unbiased manner?”:

“Help impeach President Trump”: 53%
“Block his impeachment”: 8%
Report “news in an unbiased an unbiased manner”: 32%

But, 53% of black voters and 60% of other minorities, compared to 51% of whites, said reporters are trying to get Trump rather than report the news fairly.
