It's Primary Time Once Again

Elections are just around the bend. This time around it would be nice to see the candidates address the issues and divulge their records. What a refreshing change that would be. No more mud slinging, no more whining. No more hiding behind a plethora of rhetoric.

I have been saying for years that two things have to happen in order for things to change. The first is that if you don’t do your homework and invest a little time and effort getting to know the candidates you shouldn’t be allowed to vote. The other solution really rests on the shoulders of the first. That is that all candidate offices should have a choice of “None of the above” and if that is the winning vote, those candidates should be barred from running for any public office in the future.

What do you think it will take to turn the tide?
