What sort of backward campaign is being run when Paris Hilton responds to a perceived attack with an energy policy proposal that makes more sense than either of the official candidates’ proposals? Has political campaigning devolved into empty rhetoric and mindless attaks? Students of history tell us that this sort of thing has gone on within the American political system since the first contested elections were held at the end of the 18th century. This is small comfort to a growing problem. Politicians seem increasingly complacent while simultaneously their approval ratings tumble. We as a people need to take back our government. Read candidate positions and policies. Ignore empty rhetoric and hollow negativity. Challenge the candidates to fully explain their positions and don’t give cheap votes by choosing a candidate based on a single issue.
