In all my years, I have never seen an election like this one. It used to be you looked at candidates and figured out which one was best for America.
One who would protect the country, keep the prestige, the allies the No. 1 standing, and you felt good after the election because most candidates felt that way.
Today it's all lies, fears, innuendos, false statements, hidden messages and a lot of un-truths — from both major party candidates. No longer is it “what can I do for America.” It's "my party and only my party” — regardless of the honesty, integrity or transparency of the candidate.
Before voting — and do vote — take a good hard look at the USA today and think about which way you want America to go: ahead as a leader or downhill to a non important entity? It's your choice. Use it wisely.
