Candidates should remove signs

I sure am glad to see the primary election come to a close, and I hope all the campaign signs will be removed from public view as soon as it is feasible to do so.

A good portion of the campaign signs will no doubt be left to blow in the wind, especially those of the losers.

Personally, I think it should be mandatory for all candidates to remove or have their signs removed after an election, because they are very unsightly.

As for the election itself, I bet some candidates are as proud as peacocks while others will no doubt be very, very unhappy with the outcome, especially if they did a lot of bragging and made a lot of derogatory remarks about their opponents during the campaign.

The right to vote is ours and should not be taken lightly, nor should a vote be sold. If a vote is bought, it is not only unethical, but is illegal by law, and just shows the type of person you are voting for.

My vote is mine, and is not for sale at any price, and I vote for whom I think will do the most efficient job. I could care less what nationality he is, or even if he or she has three eyes instead of the customary two.

I am not the least bit interested in what they look like, but what they can do for the people. I definitely won’t and never have, vote for a candidate who makes himself or herself look like an idiot with their derogatory comments aimed at their opponents.

I don’t believe in fixing anything that already works either, so if I think the incumbent is doing a good job, I will vote for them regardless of who is opposing them.

If someone is not doing a good job it is our privilege to vote against them, but if you don’t vote at all, you have no right to complain even though it is human nature to gripe and complain.

And that’s all from the funny farm until next time.
