Isn’t this craziness over yet – I am referring to the upcoming election. I am not one that usually writes about religion or politics because I have my own thoughts on both subjects and they are just that – “my thoughts,” and not something I discuss or write about.
However, in my attempt to write a small piece using today’s daily word prompt, I thought I would have a bit of fun with it.
Wikipedia – Hyperbole is the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. In rhetoric, it is also sometimes known as auxesis (lit. “growth”). In poetry and oratory, it emphasizes, evokes strong feelings, and creates strong impressions.
A hyperbole is an unreal exaggeration to emphasize the real situation.
Looking at this whole political process and what each candidate is espousing – it appears to me that the “hyperbole” applicable is:
“I am trying to solve a million issues these days.”
In all seriousness – even though this particular blog posting makes jest of the upcoming election, let me just say that I hope everyone reading it will get out and vote for the candidate of your choice as it is our right to do so and we should elect to do it during every election period. Until next time!
