A Well Rounded Take Is More Than Two Sides

Watch and read. Pay attention to the details. Draw your own conclusions. Google up a copy of the federal budget and flow of funds documents. Take a month or two to learn how to read it. Then educate yourself some more. Just learn to take less stock in all of that "Side A is 100% right, side B is 100% wrong" you hear and read too many places. That kind of commentary decides for you, rather than giving you the tools to decide for yourself.

Vote Today. And forever. All the time.

Get out and vote today. And the next time around. Make a habit of being informed and having influence.
