Brevard North Carolina Real Estate Blog: An Open Letter to Americans

An Open Letter to Americans

American Flag

Greetings Americans,

Over the course of this current election campaign we've received a lot of emails "exposing" one side or the other for something that was or wasn't said or for a policy position that may or may not be true. Most of these emails refer to factcheck.org as a source of truth. So, in the interest of independent thinking, we went to factcheck.org and did a little research. The links below are an example of what we found.

The one constant in this election (most elections for that matter) is that ALL politicians lie and embellish when they are seeking votes. They will say and do what they have to to get your vote. Wake up! Your candidate is as guilty as mine and if you can't see that, then you have your head in the sand and your eyes are closed to what is going on around you!

Left-Right, Liberal-Conservative, Democrat-Republican-Independent...let's remember we're Americans first. In this election, both sides are claiming to be "agents of change" but the way they have conducted their campaigns is anything but. So we propose that WE THE PEOPLE take the lead and do what the politicians have not been able to do (or have chosen not to do) about changing the way things are done.

Starting today, no matter which candidate you support, if you want to send a political email to people, make it positive. Tell us something good about YOUR candidate of choice. Give us a reason to support YOUR candidate. We can decide for ourselves whether to embrace it or not. Personal attacks, false claims, rumor mongering, and slinging mud at the other side doesn't tell us anything about your candidate, what they believe in, what their policy position is, or why you believe he or she is the right choice come November.

We are sick and tired of the negative campaigning...the half truths...and the outright lies coming from both sides. Come on America! We can do better! If there is to be change in this country, then let it begin with us. Right here. Right now.

The next time you get an email that does nothing but slander and slam the opposing party and offers no substance, then copy and paste this letter and hit "reply to all".
