The practice of trash talking with personal insults rather than appeal to reason has dominated our political season.  This kind of logic is known as argumentum ad hominem, or ad hominem for short.  The personal attack is intended to discredit any statement made by the opponent.

I will go with you the extra mile…
Look at the distance we’ve covered…

Let’s us find a tomorrow and leave all this sorrow…
Let us sealed each other’s promise one more time..
Put your lips once more upon mine…
I know the hurt and the fatigue…
I will help you walk through the night…
I know the fear of wondering if only sadness awaits..
I know a long time ago you gave up…
You let them changed you and chained you…
You gave up the right to your life…
Like a body dehydrated by the hot burning sun…
But I brought to you a fresh stream…
