I recieved an email recently regarding one of our esteemed Presidential candidates. I'm sure that none of you are strangers to this kind of email: someone has "witnessed first hand" something un-American or un-Presidential and proceeds to tell you why this is SO un-American or un-Presidential that you have to "send this to as many "Americans" as possible to make sure the evil stops here.
Does that sound a little crazy to anyone else?
Please tell me that we are smarter than that. Please tell me that we do not turn on our computers and base our entire voting strategy on an email. And that we do not, in general, believe everything that comes through, just because it came from a friend.
Next time you get an email, or hear a story that sounds just a little off, or maybe a little far fetched. Take it with a grain of salt. And if you feel like that about the email, chances are that others you know will feel the same (or in my case, stronger) about the email, and don't pass it on.
Stop the mud slinging. We all have our opinions and that is great. I even enjoy a friendly debate every once in a while. But don't thrust your opinion on me if I did not ask for.
