I love keeping up with current events, so at 10 o'clock every night the TV is switched on. However, it is the commercials that get me hot-and-bothered from late September through early November. Politician upon politician telling me not WHY I should vote for them but WHY I should NOT vote for their opponent.
The Mud Slinging. The Slander. The Poor Sportsmanship.
It is not in my nature! I don't like to talk bad about people. I don't like to hear others talking badly about another. I would rather hear what they are about then what they are /not/.
Since I want to make an informed decision on election day I googled 'elections' along with the name of my county which helped me find a non-partisan web site that lists all the folks that are running in my county and state. I will take the time to inform myself. I will make an educated decision. It may seem early but I'd rather know now what folks stand for so that I can officially tune-out the political mumbo-jumbo on TV during the dreaded news hour.
We have some wonderful freedoms as Americans. Freedoms that *our* soldier, sailors, airmen, marines and coast guard defend every day! Educate yourself and when the time comes get out there and vote! Ensure that their hard work counts!
