Voting

I want to thank singer/songwriter Pat Wictor for sending several links in his recent email newsletter that can be of assistance in helping to decide how to vote in the upcoming presidential election.

Here is an excerpt from his newsletter including those links:

"On the Issues: http://www.ontheissues.org Issue-by-issue breakdown of speeches, writings, and votes by all the candidates for President (including the independents), as well as candidates for Congress.

ProCon.org http://2008election.procon.org/ Also an issue-by-issue breakdown, with a different methodology and sources. It highlights how candidates' issue positions have evolved (flip-flopped, in electionese) over time.

FactCheck http://www.factcheck.org/ Dispassionate debunking of rumors, half-truths, and fabrications peddled by the candidates and their allies.

The Living Room Candidate http://www.livingroomcandidate.org/ A collection of election-year commercials, curated by the Museum of the Moving Image, with brief summaries, from 2008 back to 1952.

More good resources to research the candidates: http://smartvoter.org/2008/11/04/preslinksnov.html

The Reading Odyssey: http://www.readingodyssey.com/ "

Please check out Pat's site for information about his tour dates and music, I highly recommend a listen.

If you haven't registered yet, please go do so and then get out and vote on November 4th.

Peace to all.

Excellent collection of links, thanks because I've been looking for something like this and will definitely check a lot of them out!

BTW, in your scrolling photos on the right you have one of 3 tomatos, that has stock photography written all over it and there are others too (some of the sewing stuff). You should be selling those as such immediately!!!

Very good. As a Libertarian, I appreciate all sources that include ALL of the candidates, and not just Obama/McCain.
