The Daily Post, Prompt: Open

In response to daily post’s one- word prompt : Open

I have observed elections held in many countries,there is one thing quite disturbing among the candidates is open hostility they show against each other. To me it sounds childish, if a candidate is not doing so well in winning over the population, they seem to try and start a smear campaign against the candidate who is doing better than them.

These candidates are supposedly adults with a sound mind, why would they use this kind of tactics? Aren’t they setting a wrong example for the young people or do they not care?

It’s if I don’t get you I will by exposing one of the members of your family. Some day I hope to get elected a candidate would not be allowed to  show open hostility towards another candidate.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing with us this brief, yet powerful, post. I always look at the behaviors of political candidates. If they seem to be provoke conflict and/or remain in conflict, I use that information as a gauge of whether or not they would be fit to lead a nation.

    If a person cannot manage his/her own behavior, there is reason to believe that s/he should not strive to lead others.

    All good wishes,


  2. My dearest sister,

    I share the views you have expressed here, and the sentiment too. Thank you for writing it 🙂
