The worst part about pending elections is the inevitable mudslinging and grandstanding that goes on. Don’t we teach our children that bullies are insecure when they pick on others? The same thing applies to politicians.
Your mudslinging does not make you look intelligent or clever, instead it makes you look insecure and weak. It is not attractive, in fact it is a real turn off. Can you not run your campaign outlining your own values, plans, goals and credentials or experience instead of smearing your opponents?
The other tactic I cannot stand in politicians is grandstanding. If you are good at something you do not have to tell everyone how good you are. This is another lesson we try to teach our children; tooting your own horn is not attractive.
Sadly it will only get worse as elections to choose a leader for the Conservative party (to replace ousted Patrick Brown and then a premier here in Ontario are fast approaching.
Anyone else feel this way?
