I found an answer to all the negative political ads:

The good you do today people will forget tomorrow. Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some enemies. Succeed anyway.

If you are kind, people will accuse you of having ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.

What you spend years building someone may destroy overnight. Build it anyway.

If you are honest and frank people may cheat you. Be honest and frank anyway.

Give the world the best that you have and it may never be enough. Give the best you have anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness others may be jealous. Be happy anyway.

You see, in the final analysis it’s between God and you. It was never between you and them anyway.

It’s hard for me to believe the rhetoric that is bantered back and forth. I think PAC’s should be held to libel laws for what they spew forth. With no responsibility there is no end to where they will go. This is a result of the character assassination practiced by our politicians. It drives the wedge deeper into the rift. It has got to end.

Our problems need resolutions, not a widening gap.
