As we enter phase 2 of the 2016 election season the gloves appear to be off. In New Hampshire the latest dust up has several candidates at  each others throats. All of this to get to the stage of  being the candidate of choice for which ever party. This is without a doubt one of the most raucous campaign in a while and pretty diverse.  These aspirants are now actively attacking one another in any way at all. It is quite unfortunate that we have to have this type of infighting and muck raking in order to select (not chose) a person to run for the Presidency. It seems that too many of us do not understand how “Washington DC” works. The first thing to keep in mind is “no President can get anything done without Congress, I repeat NO PRESIDENT can get anything done without the Congress! With that statement it is reasonable to consider closely who we elect to represent us in Congress. These are the law makers and only act on bills presented by committees and or the President. It is easy to ask, beg or demand actions on our own personal desires but often those desires do not work as much for us as it does for the Representatives we elected to do what we want.  Think about politics as a Circus-the purpose is to present a show with a variety of acts that amaze, inform and many times fool us. Your real mind understands the concept but your entertainment hungry mind ignores all reason and accepts it all. Enter election time theatrics, if you look at each race as a competing circus act, you will see that the most thrilling acts will gain more attention but in reality have less material worth. We as voters have made own beds in that we have owned this quasi infotainment electioneering. Since the advent of TV politics we have just sat back , laughed, cajoled hated and loved the candidates while viewing this serious process as entertainment. The reversal of this awful process is simple, as voters you’re going to be assailed, cajoled and often assuaged with rhetoric ranging from I’m like you, I’m smarter than you and I am the same as you. Do not be fooled by these words , in the end these are no more than Snake oil salesmen who you know are out to get as much from you as possible while giving you something of often lesser value. Your only protection is read everything you can about the issues and keep in mind that just because you do not agree with other views it does not diminish the value of that view and could possible enhance yours. I have been a voter for a few years  now and have learned to look at several aspects of the races including any available information on the candidates but the one thing I have found is critical to who they are and that is their history before and after they were elected. Do your homework and you will become the type of voter who will not be fooled by Politispeak!
