Allow me to share with my fellow gardeners -- and voters -- a video
produced by Project Vote Smart, which I have been supporting for some
years. It gives the skinny on candidates, impartially, rationally,
rather than emotionally.
Vote Smart needs to be widely known, particularly in this election
year that has witnessed such negative campaigning. I'm being polite:
Outright lies and distortions; appeals to the uninformed and easily
deceived; corrupting influence of money in politics as never before.
There aren't many places where voters can go for FACTS. Vote Smart is
So, if you are moved, share this information with your list. We're
all in this together.
He's talking to people who are NOT paying attention to politics.
That's why he has to talk in basic terms. To get them to understand
that they do not have to allow the corporate state to take over what
was a DEMOcracy (government by the people) and turn it into a
PLUTOcracy (government by the rich). Even people who ARE "paying
attention to politics" sometimes feel swamped by the tsunamis of
biased information put out on the pop media. That is precisely the
value of an objective site that presents FACTS rather than biased,
Unfortunately, with the "Citizens United" decision, the air waves will
be awash in corporate propaganda. The Democratic and Republican National
committees are already bought and payed for by corporations.
If you vote a straight Democrat ticket, you are stupid. If you vote a
straight Republican ticket, you are crazy.
Both the Republicans and the Democratic Parties supported the sacking
and pillaging of the American tax dollars. With the support of both the
Democrats and Republicans, Wall Street bankers are back to giving
million dollar bonuses to each other with American tax payer money
pillaged from main street. Why are people out of work? Why are people on
the street? Why are pension plans under funded? Wall Street.
Vote third party. You can't afford to keep supporting the crooks.
Hah! No, not hardly!
THIS Richard Kimball is a real patriot, IMHO. He saw a need for
unbiased reporting on officials and candidates in this corrupt, bought-
and-sold political system. It's sickening how the media focusses,
like vultures, over how many millions Candidate X or Y has raised/
spent on advertising. Nothing about whether X or Y is qualified to
serve in the office being sought. Almost nothing about their beliefs
(forget those silly debates) and actions in the past.
Over the years, with the help of enthusiastic volunteers and members,
Richard Kimball has built up Vote Smart to a reliable sources for what
X or Y has DONE rather than what Big Lies he/she has got the numbskull
pop media to report.
Much of the public, rightfully disillusioned with the current, corrupt
Pay to Play system; mistrustful of a reliable source of information,
has opted out of participation. The Founders, who bequeathed to us
the world's best system to date, must be spinning in their graves to
see how the system has been corrupted by corporate money, abetted by a
politicized Supreme Court majority (Citizens United).
I have no connection with Vote Smart except as a dedicated member.
