The Covington News - - Opinion -

Four years ago, the na­tion was atwit­ter at the thought of elect­ing a youth­ful, en­er­getic breath of fresh air.

First time vot­ers and vot­ers who had not voted in years flocked to the polls to elect this man who promised hope and change.

If you still feel that way four years later, good for you; they say that naiveté eases the pain of real-life sit­u­a­tions.

Barak Obama was and still is the dar­ling of his main-street me­dia masters who helped cre­ate the im­age of him that was pro­jected to the Amer­i­can elec­torate in the 2008 elec­tion. This same group still do their best to main­tain that im­age, truth be damned.

The fact that pa­pers like the New York Times, the Wash­ing­ton Post and TV sta­tions like NBC and ABC still, at times, will not print the real truth no mat­ter what it con­cerns. These me­dia out­lets make big sto­ries out of non-ex­is­tent is­sues and turn them into po­lit­i­cal mole­hills — some­thing that is dis­grace­ful and morally un­eth­i­cal.

Now in ad­di­tion to this, we are find­ing that some na­tional polls are be­ing skewed by fig­ures from the 2008 elec­tion; fig­ures that were in all like­li­hood an anom­aly for the 2008 elec­tion only.

We urge you not to be ma­nip­u­lated by what­ever force there is in this coun­try which feels it can influence your de­ci­sion with­out fear of you do­ing some­thing about it.

We im­plore you to read ev­ery ar­ti­cle you can find on our two pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates and make your own de­ci­sion based on what you de­ter­mine to be the truth.

Then vote on Nov. 6; this vote will be one of your most im­por­tant de­ci­sions.

If you have not voted be­fore, please reg­is­ter now. When you reach the polls this Novem­ber, be your own per­son, not the prod­uct of a ma­nip­u­lated few.
