Think I am just thinking.

Words are but thoughts made visible.

Politics

Politics:

   Don’t you love a good debate?  Of course what we really end up hearing are the candidates trying to say what they think the majority of the public want to hear.  After-all, who ever won votes telling people things they do not like to hear.  No politician has ever ran on the platform of “I will raise taxes and increase the National Debt to levels never before experienced”! 

   Of course there is the occasional politician who does upon reviewing the facts of a couple years ago, change their position on a topic.  This is usually because they found out they were wrong about what the people wanted to hear.  So what you really want to do is try to answer every question in a manner that can be taken in many different ways.  That way, once you get feedback on what the people thought you said and what they did or did not like, you have the opportunity to “Clarify” your position and tell the people what it was you were really trying to say.

   After all, “We the people in order to form a more perfect union” want to vote for the person who thinks the way we do.  Or at least at a minimum, says things, or clarifies what they have said, so I know they are just like me!
