    Thank you Mr. Sargent! I could not agree more. It is disappointing that so many of the races have become so negative.

    What Bill says is the Reagan rule for conservatives. "don't attack other conservatives."
    Explain to voters why they should vote for you, convince voters you are the candidate they want.
    Attacking your conservative opponent forces voters to think they are voting for the best of two poor choices when they could be voting for the best of two good choices.
    Remember the worst conservative will be better than the best liberal.

    True Bill Sargent....

    Make sure that all the votes are counted squarely.

    Make sure those voting machines are functioning properly.

    Talk to your buddy O'Brien about his son's negative mail pieces for they are the worst. After all, his opponent never brought up his mental illness issues which I thought was pretty classy of him.

    Hi truthserum,

    It was classy of you to not bring it up, either

    It's bad enough when the opposing party starts hurling mud but when it comes from your own corner its gotta hurt. Come November, all primary losers will be backing their party's nominee but the opposing party will use the ammunition. Remember who the first "birther" was, who insisted Barack Obama was not born in this country but in Kenya? It was Hillary Rodham Clinton's supporters, not the Republicans. Notice how the Democratic Party forgave them then blamed the Republicans as being "birthers". Ask the average Low Information Voter and they'll tell you the Republicans started it in 2008.

    Gimme a break - I'm going as fast as I can ... The bumps and bruises of political blogging in Galveston County takes a toll on us senior citizens - definitely no respect for your elders. [smile]
