Small community and citizens there seem to continue to make rumor hurt individuals and business alike. We are Americans and need to learn to live in this small community. it time that citizens and businesses take a step back and look at its community. Character assassination is the attempt to discredit a person through damage to his or her personal character. This tactic is often used to harm an individual for spite or personal gain, in situations as small as a classroom rumor mill, or as large as a national election. When character assassination is attempted through the use of lies, gross exaggeration, or misrepresentation of facts, it may be considered slander or libel, and may sometimes result in legal charges.

Americans should honor this great nation with being more ethical in dealing with each other. The time has come to unite with their brothers and sisters. Be more tolorate of differences. Share each others successes. Be more not less of a person in the times that men souls are tested.

Love your neighbor!

In general, the goal of character assassination is to cause some harm to the target as a result of the stories or rumors. For instance, in a political election, a candidate may try to damage an opponent's reputation by claiming he or she is estranged from family members, or has a history of marital affairs. The rumors spread do not necessarily need to be related to the issue at hand, such as whether or not the targeted individual would make a good mayor or governor; instead, they need only to cause voters to question whether the target adheres to culturally acceptable moral and personal standards.
