Letter: What’s behind vandalism of political signs? by Craig Strid
Yes, it is criminal damage to property but it’s just cardboard and ink, so why the front page of the newspaper? Unless there’s an alternative motive. Could it be that negativity draws attention? There was a nice photo of the candidate’s signs. Do sympathy votes count as regular votes? Was this an opportunity? I also see an opportunity. What would motivate someone to do such damage? Could it be the lack of commitment from Congress to seriously address and find solutions to this country’s dilemma? Could it be the constant bombardment of both party and big money political interest media that drives someone to take drastic measures? Or could it be that Republican top candidates are chameleons and offering inconsistent flip-flop solutions that don’t compare in reality to the problems facing this country? Or could it be that the land owner expresses his political views in such a way that upsets their audience?
Finally, I can only say that I’m guessing and grasping for motives and would have to be a mind reader to know the truth. One can only wonder.
Can one see the forest for the political signs?
Food for thought…
