As the election takes place, it appears to be more like a battlefield where warfare occurs. Or perhaps what takes place in our courtrooms at a hearing, when statements are presented along with evidence, then rebutted and disputed.

I feel that some people in our political arena are overacting, especially in the race for governor or our great state. I can remember a time when Democrats and Republicans had more respect for each other than they seem to have today.

Any political race should be taken seriously and conducted in a way that is become to mature adults.
