I tried to not blog about politics. I wanted to keep out of the political spin cycle. But with all of the adrenaline that is going through the country right now with the upcoming election, I just couldn’t keep quiet.
Right now, the thing that is really pissing me off is the huge government proposed corporate bailout. If you or I screw up in our economic affairs, do we get a bailout or severance package? Oh no…. But look at what is happening today: Washington Mutuals’ new CEO might get $13 million, and he wasn’t even on the job for that long! Boy, does that make me see red upon red!
So, do you want to find out unbiased information to help you decide for whom to vote? I found this website: FactCheck. It is a non-partisan (gotta love that) organization that compiles information about current government events. Did you know that Obama was only present for about 3% of his total voting career? Yeah, I really want someone who’s only present 3% of the time. Sigh. Anyway, go check that website out. It shows both sides of the story.
ETA: I have a new link category in the right hand column: “An Educated Voter is a Powerful Voter”. Check back for updated links for information to be a powerful voter. We HAVE the voice when we vote. Don’t complain to me when things don’t happen how you want if you don’t get off your butt in November and vote.
