My biggest peeve with the upcoming election is people who are basing decisions by what they think they know. To them I say, the world is changing. A Democratic position from 50, 20 or even 10 years isn’t the same as it is today. Neither is the Republican position. The economy has changed, the American culture has changed, technology has changed. Both candidates are advocating change through their campaigns, but I think only one has the ability to get America up to speed with the present and prepare for the future.
Whether you’re red, blue or purple, please take the next 20 days to educate yourself and speak to your decision. Read through the media lens and then read the words of Obama and McCain, on their websites. Watch the debate tonight and then watch all the debates again (play bingo!). Have conversations. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and provide factual answers. And take advantage of the onslaught of information providers, like the Obama Tax Calculator, that we’re sure to see more of before November 4th.
