Does Bigger Always Mean Better?

I hope you like the title to this post. I don't know if you have noticed it or not, but it is election time in Hickman County Tennessee. And, signs are everywhere. Not too many years ago, I was one of the people that placed signs at every crossroad and yard that I could find. I believe that it is a necessary evil to remind voters who is running for what.

But, this year seems to me to be different. Perhaps there are more people running for offices than usual. There must be thousands of signs out there and they are getting bigger. That seems to me to be yelling. Sorta like using all caps when posting on Facebook or any website.

I don't know, but maybe the election will help to stimulate the local economy - the sign-makers anyway. Of course, I have also heard some complaints that many of the candidates haven't bought there signs locally, but have gone out of Hickman County to other counties to purchase their signs. To me, that is WRONG! How can you expect people to vote for you when you don't even support local businesses. Kinda like the manager of Vision 21 not even living in Hickman County. That is WRONG!

Anyway, GO VOTE!
