The Village Square feels your pain: Offers election season citizens’ survival guide
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Tired of low‐rent political advertisements that make you hurl objects at the television set? Bored with the finger‐pointing, whining, squabbling, temper tantrums and gotcha games? Got indigestion from one too many robocall from Bill Clinton or John McCain during dinner? Perhaps all this has you looking for the “none of the above” box at the voting booth. Or maybe you’ve just given up hoping for something different.
It’s election season and the assaults to our values, intelligence and patience are out again in full force. If you’re among the majority of Americans who feel the tone of our civic conversation sounds like five‐year‐olds at recess (with no offense to five-year‐olds), nonpartisan Tallahassee nonprofit The Village Square offers you their “2010 Citizen’s Election Season Survival Guide.”
Filled with tips to save your sanity (while you improve your citizenship and get a new spring in your step), this guide will become your indispensible companion as you dream of making it past Tuesday, Nov. 2nd without losing your temper, sanity or belief in democracy.
