I'm Not Going to Tell You How To Vote

Heck, I'm not even going to tell you which party I belong to. It's not relevant to this discussion.

But here's the thing: VOTE. It's important. It DOES matter. Most importantly, though, please vote with an informed knowledge of the candidates. If you'd like an unbiased source for the candidates' policies and views, you can find one here...

Yes, I know it's extra work and you're already super busy. I know it's easier to just vote your customary party line. However, it is very important to know WHO you're voting for. Don't just vote for the party that typically agrees with you on certain key issues.

Please, please, please RESEARCH the candidates -- all of them, including the VP nominees. Dig down deep and look for the least biased sources. Don't just rely on your friends and religious groups for information. Dig deeper, look harder, care more.

This is important during every single election, from the municipal level to the national level, but for me, this November is going to have earth-shattering consequences no matter who wins.

So VOTE, but more importantly, use these next two months to RESEARCH THE CANDIDATES. Please.
