All political commercials should come with warnings

JAMES WOEHLER Kuttawa

EDITOR:

Have you ever read the fine print at the bottom of your television screen during some commercials? How about the one where in order to beat the traffic the car flies up a ramp, lands on a train, then amazingly lands safely at the occupants' destination?

At the bottom of the screen they post a disclaimer saying ..."Do not attempt, professional driver on a closed course," or "Cars can't fly, do not attempt."

They should do the same thing with political commercials. America's politicians should be required to place a disclaimer under each commercial or maybe even a warning label like they force cigarette companies to place on their products. "Warning....the Surgeon General has determined that watching political commercials may be harmful to your mental health." Or perhaps this one ... "Warning, this person is a professional politician. Believing anything this person says may jeopardize you and your children's future."

Come November of this year when you goose step into the voting booth and pledge allegiance to your political party in Washington, D.C., (Lucifer's country club), just remember this, "A house divided will not stand."

Both the Democrats and Republicans have proven they shouldn't be trusted to manage America's government. Our debt, approaching $18 trillion and growing, has laid bare their inept and cavalier attitudes about fiscal responsibility. They are inebriated with their own bombastic platitudes.

It's quite obvious, unless your oblivious to the facts, that Democrats can't and won't control their spendaholic ways. Republicans aren't much better.

Let's limit all politicians to two terms - one in office and one in prison.
