Make up your own mind

As always, during elections, we are bombarded by personal opinions from folks who seem to think we are all morons and need to hear/read what they have to say.

News break: I don’t give a fig about your opinions, and wish you would keep them to yourself. I am intelligent and make my decisions based on how candidates have acted previously, how they are presenting themselves now, what they are saying now and what they are saying they will do for the future of my country.

I ensure I have all the facts I need and I don’t read your letters because I don’t care what your opinions are. Why don’t you write letters about our community/wonderful neighbors, etc.? Your opinions are a waste of time and space and definitely will not change how I vote. My vote will be based on my decision and my decision only.
