Non-Partisan? - And Response

Friday, July 31, 2020
The attached picture is what I found in the mailbox when I got home today. The other side of it, the front side, also says "2020 Non-Partisan Voting Guide." 

Underneath, the text reads "This non-partisan voter guide gives you the objective information you need to make an informed choice. Now you can cast your ballot with confidence!"  

Two lies so far. This is a partisan flyer and it is anything but objective. 

The back side, what you see, shows smiley Marco and growling Tom. Underneath that it has four overly simplified statements with the checks and X's to the right. Yes, Yes, Yes under smiley and No, No, No under growler.  The only Yes Tom Decosimo got was for "Supports giving taxpayer money to exclusive private schools." Marco got a no for that. That is so over simplified it's infuriating to me. 

Because of this and at least three other "ah ha" moments that have occurred in the District Two race, I'll not scribble an ink dot next to Tom, I'll ram jam it with "informed confidence."

Well said Savage. 

The only thing remaining in today’s environment that is non-partisan is... Nothing!

Everything has become partisan. Even wearing a mask during a deadly pandemic.

The quote below sums it up— From the skoo board to the White House:

“I think that all right thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary decent people in this country are fed up with being sick and tired. I am certainly not and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.”— Monty Python
