Character counts

What disappoints me and turns me off the most about election time is that many office seekers and their supportersassume the we voters thrive on all the backbiting, name calling and just downright nasty dirty campaigning.

The candidates and their supporters who want us all to believe that they are all good God fearing Christians, but just can’t seem to manage to stay that way during election time.

Character is very important, but nobody’s perfect and character assassination has no place in politics. And what does engaging in that kind of negative mudslinging say about the character of those who want to lead us and those who support him/her who would engage in that kind of lowbrow campaigning ?
