To the Editor:

I got a Robocall with a prerecorded message. I hate those type of call so I hung up. It’s one way to make sure you won’t get my vote. The robocall make me think about how much was spent on slogans, phrases and sound bites.

Slogans, phrases and sound bites are just that, nothing more. They  don’t fix anything nor do they change anything. What you have to do is look for clues from people. If it is always “me” or “I,” the ego is too big to work through an issue with anyone.

The bigger the promise the harder it will be to deliver. Remember hype has never given us anythingother than false hope. Promises are like Greeks bearing gifts, beware of them.
