Finally! It’s Election Day

Today is finally the day we have been waiting for.

Well for those of use who are sick and tired of this election cycle at least.

The candidates are probably glad that election day is finally here as well, but they are most likely happy because they don’t have to campaign until when ever the next election cycle. (Four years for who ever wins the President of the United States, Six for whoever wins a United States Senate Seat, two years for whoever wins a seat in the United States House of Representatives, and whatever the term is for any local offices)

I’m happy because I won’t have to hear any more attack ads. Though I haven’t really heard any this election cycle anyway. Really it seems like those I have heard were from Hillary Clinton and the opponent for the local Congressional Seat. (Anna Throne-Holst) Not surprisingly those two are Democrats.

I did hear an Attack ad for the incumbent for the local Congressional Seat who is a Republican, though he also ran ads that weren’t attack ads.

Well Anyway I’m just glad that it’s Election Day and all of that will end.

Also up for grabs was a seat in the United States Senate. Oddly while I have heard an ad for the Incumbent (Charles “Chuck” Schumer), I hadn’t heard any ads for his challenger. Heck, I don’t even know who his challenger was. Did he even have a challenger?

Yes he had a challenger. A woman named Wendy Long. I never heard of her, though it doesn’t matter really since she’ll probably end up losing. I mean New York is basically a blue state, were Democrats always seem to win. Or at least they seem to win the races for Governor, and United States Senators, and most of the United States House of Representatives Districts. Also New York elects the Democratic Nominee for President.

The last time a Republican from New York won a seat in the United States Senate, either Class One or Class Three was Al D’Amato in 1980. Mr. D’Amato served Three terms and who lost to in 1998 to Mr Schumer.

I said it once and I’ll say it again. I’m glad it is over!

Why are Donald Trump and Ben Carson leading?

The reason Donald Trump and Ben Carson are leading the polls for Republican presidential candidate is simple, they are not politicians and that is what the voters want right now. If you look at all the candidates for President, both Democrat and Republican, there are only three people running for their party’s nomination who have never held office before. Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and Carly Florina. surprisingly they are all running for the Republican nomination.

All the other candidates running have all held other offices, wether it be a Governor or United States Senator, they are rehearsed on reading from preplanned speeches and on how to tell voters what they want to hear to get them elected.

The one thing, or at least in my opinion, that attracts the voters to Donald Trump isn’t because of The Apprentice, or that he acts more like he’s an entertainer. It’s because  or the most part, he doesn’t seem to be reading from a written speech. He seems, again at least to me,  like he is actually talking to the people rather than read a speech then take questions and never really get to the point. Trump also seems to be passionate about the issues that most Americans cared about. I mean most of the issues Trump has been talking about have been problems for years and many people wanted things done about, and he is actually talking about doing something about those problems. Unlike a politician who says that they will do something and then it’s like four years later and nothing has been done about it.

I don’t know a lot about Carson but the principal of how he isn’t a politician still applies, and that is why people like him, as well as Trump, and why they are doing so well in the poll.

Thats why I believe the age of the Politician, or at least the politician who reads from a preplanned speech, is over.
