Best Way to Choose Your 2008 Presidential Candidate: Turn Off ALL TV and Radio, Successful Self Help Author Claims
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dr. Robert C. Worstell, author and editor of over three dozen self help and personal development books, stated today that if a person is going to honestly evaluate and choose the best candidate, that person should turn off all TV programs, quit listening to the radio, and throw away all the paper except the classifieds, comics, and sports pages. He said that the proof of this is in the underlying system all self help authors use to make their books bestsellers.
In an interview with the Midwest Journal, Dr Worstell claimed that all media gets it wrong - and especially politics.
\"You can\'t trust the media to get anything right. So why are you believing that they are going to tell you anything worthwhile about a candidate?\" He said, candidly. \"All the media are advertising-supported, right? So they only tell you stuff that makes you want to watch their show or buy their paper. Who advertises in election years? That\'s right - candidates and their flunkies, the organized groups for one side or the other.\"
He further reasoned that anything which makes you feel bad isn\'t good for you. And you only really trust people you can talk to. So his advice is to only talk to your friends about what they think about candidates and then make up your own mind. But if you hear a lot of trash talk, then figure that you\'re getting bad data that isn\'t going to do you any good.
\"All these bestselling self help authors knew that. That\'s why Obama does great when he talks in uplifting terms - like Ronald Reagan and Winston Churchill. When Hillary goes sour, it hurts her.\" Dr. Worstell explained, \"While Harry Truman spoke straight talk from his convictions, it also gave him the worst ratings in history for any president (Coasties don\'t understand Flyover). Why does America think Congress is screwing things up? Because they are constantly bickering and not getting anything done. Politicians and Politics is just wasting American\'s time. Tell them to shut up and go buy a nice book or listen to an audio tape. Much better for you.\"
His approach to self help comes from his rural roots, plus a long hitch in the West Coast. The contradictions in lifestyles forced him to evaluate their approaches to life. Ultimately, he returned to his native Missouri and took up farming while he completed his research. The result of those studies netted him several advanced degrees and ultimately a \"Go Thunk Yourself!\" book series, which lays out a common sense approach to improving your life. One of the points in his book is to turn off the TV, radio, and ignore the newspapers.
\"I do tell people to get the news they need from the Internet, but don\'t live your life there.\" Dr. Worstell says, \"Get on, get the data you need, and get off. With the various podcatcher programs and newsreaders, you can get condensed format for any vital news you need. But the real news you want is what is happening around you. How is your garden, how are the kids doing in school, how\'s your spouse doing at the job - you know, that type of thing. The more people live vicariously through the \'main-scream media\', the more they have truly lousy lives filled with problems and worries. Just turn all that stuff off and help your kids with their homework. Or take up a hobby the whole family can enjoy. Or play card games with the neighbors. But go out and live some life, for Christ\'s sake.\"
The opinionated farmer-doctor lives and operates a working farm near a town called Mexico, Missouri. He says his inspiration comes from those wide open spaces and hard physical work daily.
Dr. Worstell also maintains several blogs, and has written numerous articles and whitepapers. He\'s posted several videos on YouTube, as well as many podcasts. Two of his books are available on Amazon and other online retailers, while the rest are published through Print-On-Demand Online Publisher Lulu. All of his books are available for download as well through Lulu.
