There is not a single person or a single instance that all human beings agree on, and we constantly form our own opinion on good or bad, or sometimes indifference. The matter of perspective comes into common sense analogy of any/every instance. As in day and night it is constant as the rotation of earth and going around the sun, remains constant and the difference is really as good as day and night. Why we have adapted to each of the 24 hours and how our life style has changed with electricity and travel, once again it is simply a matter of time and perspective. How did people live, survive and communicate a generation head of us, and the continuous advancements in life, technology and science, we continue to evolve and now a days have a better way to document our achievements (for a fact anything we do).
The current election is not as interesting as the Regan/Carter, Kennedy/Nixon and some of the old duels of yesteryears. The start contrast in policy and politics no longer have any bearing. The 24/7/365 news and internet coverage focuses on only the negatives. How unpopular each candidate is explored to the ninth degree? The candidates themselves are both pushing 70, so there is very little left to imagination of the electorate. They are both with plenty of well documented personal and professional background. Now one of them will be the leader of the free world (at least for the next 4 years or may be 8 years). So the surrogates, news channels and pundits who are taking extreme steps to project the other candidate as worthless, is simply a matter of political perspective. The nation is and will be equally divided on Clinton/Trump as their party’s standard bearer and the next president. At this time, irrespective of how the country feels about them that’s it, there is no other choice to send to the white house.
Why are people donating hundreds of millions to the most unpopular candidates, and why is the electorate that has already sided with their choice of candidate being subjected to the constant barrage of negative perspective on the two standing candidates? It’s really the small percentage of the population that is undecided, and who will swing the election one way or the other. That is perhaps 1 or 2 percent of the nation that is undecided will swing the election, and the billions spent and more than a year of public bashing of the candidate/s in unimaginable language, and subjecting the entire world to the public dissection. All is still not forgotten even when the election is over and the next president is chosen. This goes on every election cycle and only getting nastier with each party’s political perspective.
