Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News
I am, like many, sick of the election. I'm sick of the mudslinging and the misinformation given through many forms of media to make the other "guy," so to speak, look bad. For example, one of the local races runs a commercial bashing Jim Matheson, saying he is "two-faced" because he collaborates with both Republican and Democratic representatives to get his ideas across.
I am not affiliated with any one party. I vote for the ideas, the history and the character of a candidate. That means I must inform myself and research the candidates, not involving myself in political party propaganda.
Does that mean I'm "two-faced?" I wish people would stop viewing elections as team competitions and start focusing on voting in the person who is right for the job.
