Voting InfoVoting rights are under attack. If you're unhappy with the status quo, make sure you're registered or don't complain about our Government. The things we watch and pay attention to heavily affect the way we vote. So please remember no matter what channel, any program that does not have news in its name, that includes "the somebody report", "the something hour", "the anybody show" or even "meet the fellas"are not held to journalistic standards. They may discuss current topics but they are opinion pieces and people tend to put forth only the facts that support their opinion.
Here is a short list of suggested news services:
Today our government is challenged with heartfelt divisions in our vision of America. But whether your liberal or conservative, I know we all love this country. We don't dream of being anywhere else. It's more than our home. It's the raw creation of our hopes and dreams. The day Americans don't argue about the future scares me more than the days we do. But we have forgotten, the person on the other side of the issue is also a patriot. Their views are shaped by different experiences and different adversities.
Voting is our greatest way of participating in the conversation. There is no vote that does not count. Voicing our choices allows our politicians and policymakers to understand our opinions. Not voting does not absolve you of the outcome. For the person who doesn't vote makes no effort to stop a bad outcome, nor do they show any support for the positive one.
So get out there, seek the truth, be compassionate where you can, and "vote your conscience"!
