Vote Smart

Ok...I get political sometimes, and occasionally get on my soap box, so let me warn you now if you want to leave....now is a good time to quit reading...

We do live in the greatest country in the world. And I want everyone to get out and vote, really I do, BUT....

Please make an informed decision!! I do not bring politics up in casual conversations, but sometimes the subject does come up, and I am amazed at the ignorance of some who are running to vote (some for the first time) and have no clue where his candidate stands on ANY of the major issues.

Before you vote, there are SEVERAL websites that can inform you of a candidate's position, voting record, background and much more.

If you do not know where your candidate stands on:
  • Taxes, budget and spending issues
  • National Security
  • Healthcare
  • Energy Issues

Just to name a few...what is your voting based on? A few TV ads, maybe a debate or a bumpersticker??
Do us all a favor and become an informed voter, or do us all a favor and stay home on Nov 4th.
