Looking for Information...


When you're trying to decide who you will vote for in an upcoming election, who do you depend on for your information?


Let's face it.

Most of us are short on time and we sit and watch a 30 minute local news segment in the evening for our current events.

And during the commercial breaks we get indoctrinated with the political ads.


Whoever has the best ad wins.


Gosh...

I hope not.


But it seems that is what happens a lot of the time.


It is a lot easier to make a decision on the candidate you'll support when you have someone who is running for re-election in their current office, or for another position in government.

Because they have a voting record that you can look at.

A candidate's voting record will probably give you enough information to make a decision on the candidate you're going to vote for.

But if the candidate doesn't have a voting record, then you will probably have to listen to him speak and debate with other candidates.


You know, find out where they stand on the issues.


And of course, if he is affiliated with a political party, you have the official party platform to look at as well.


If some of you would take the time to look at some of the voting records of your favorite candidate, you may be surprised at what you will find.

But I hope not.


There are only a handful of Americans who have survived the truest tests of what it is to be an American.

And I hope that you will remember those folks...

Honor them by showing up at the polls.
