Some Questions and one Thought About the 2016 Presidential Election


What happens when you assasinate the character of your opponnent in an election and then they win?

What should you do when people you like and trust post things that you find to be at best half truths?

Will America still exist after the coming election? Is it really the end of the world as we know it?

Is it just possible that the house and senate races are more important this year if you don’t like the Presidential candidates?

When lies become the new truth, what will the truth look like?

Who among you does not take all the deductions you are entitled to on your taxes?

Are all statements that begin with the word ” All” followed by the word Democrats or Republicans lies?

Do you believe that Democrats or Republicans eat their own children?

When was the last time you actually got something important that was truly ” Free”?

Did LIncoln actually say he copied the Gettysburg Address off the internet?

Do any of you truly believe internet statistics anymore?

Do you accept uncritically as truth any statement that fits your views?

Why do we as a society accept the idea that it is okay for a politician to lie and tell half truths when we would not accept that from our teenager?

If you looked at a transcript of a repartee between Trump and Clinton without knowing who said it would you believe it was two teenagers talking trash?

Is either candidate really stupid just because you disagree with them.?

Why are we so concerned with words rather than actions?

Which is more important, what I have done or what I will do? Does really matter if I looked at a Playboy or smoked a joint when I was twenty?

Is it possible that the media is making it impossible for anyone to be elected cleanly unless they died before they were twelve?

Is it possible to disagree agreeably?

Is it true that if we always do what we have always done we will always get what we have always gotten.

Does one lie not recanted bring all your truths into question?

Have you ever said some of my best friends are republicans/democrats?

Should party affiliation be removed from ballots?

Should future elections feature a ” none of the above” choice on the ballot and if that choice receives 25% of the votes all current candidates will be disqualified from the election and a new election will be held in 45 days

In short :

I believe that this election has become all about winning a battle at the expense of winning the war.

I have been a teacher since 1971 and have taught at all educational levels from pre-school to college. My college degree is general science which I arrived at after 5 years and 5 different majors. A degree as it turns out, almost as valuable and in demand as one in Neo-Bulgarian Mythology. I have been around education for around 40 years and can remember when teaching was a pleasant, happy and creative job and our schools were the same. My writings will reflect on my past mistakes and successes and what my students have taught me about education.
