imho....voters should educate themselves on local, state and national issues. they should be aware of the basic issues apart from partisan parrotting. being a good citizen is a duty and a responsiblity that should be taken seriously. you should be active at the local level...regardless of party...just be actiive...find out what is going on with the school board and the county commissioners etc. then carry that all the way to the national level. i am bothered by much that has gone on in the last 20 or so years. the media is no longer objective. there is no real respected sourse of facts. is that the media's fault or the people's fault for making talking heads the main source of news....are we simply that shallow that we now mistake entertainers for news sources?
