Lately I’ve been getting fed up with a few things, and our government is one of them. This has come to the point where I have even jokingly talked about running for a political office myself. Now I don’t think I would ever want to subject myself to that much punishment, but it did get me thinking. I thought that if I did go for it, what type of campaign would I run? I hate it when politicians run ads that tear down other politicians, so I know I wouldn’t do that, yet I also know that there are things others could say about me, foremost being my lack of experience. This being the case, a superb idea came across my mind.
What if I dug up all the negative things that anyone could say about me, and made an ad about myself basically admitting all these things. Then, after we get past all that, I would talk about why I’m running. In my opinion honesty is a great way to start a campaign, and that’s something that I’m never sure I see from most candidates.
So here’s my question. If a candidate ran an ad about himself or herself like that, being completely honest, would you vote for them?
