I have had the opportunity to watch a lot of news the past 6 months, because at my job I have TVs all around, and the older generation doesn't seem to want to vary too much besides fox news or CNN. I am so tired of the election, it makes me not want to vote at all, I will though because I know it is important. Why is it all about what the other guy does wrong or won't do, or who he once meet 30 years ago. The answer to the question What will you do about the economy? is well so and so has no experience, they voted against such and such bill. They basically would suck at being President. I'm not a genius but that didn't answer the question at all. Everyone says thats Politics, but I just which kindness, respect, and over all positiveness ( if that is even a word) was more a part of our government, our citizens, our daily lives.
One other huge frustration of mine is the lack of respect for our President. I am not a political scholar, I don't know a lot about the in's and out's of the government. But I do believe that as an American Citizen I should respect the President of this country. That doesn't mean I have to agree with everything he says or does. But the lack of respect so many people have for the President disgusts me sometimes. I'm sure when the Founding Fathers wrote the amendments, freedom of speech and press, they could have never imagined what limits people would push that to one day.
I love the 13th article of Faith, I wish that these principles where more evident in the world around us.
"We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul—We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. "
