"hey dad and mom, who are you voting for? Candidate B? Oh ok cool".
Not that I don't trust their judgment impeccably :), but I now I am a big proponent of each voter being informed. Let's not be careless rifle users. I have heard such silly things about both candidates from people who are ignorant on the topics at hand and have not done any sort of research into what the views and issues are.
Now, I certainly do not tout myself as uber informed and up on every topic, but I am much more aware of what's going on this time around. Endless hours of NPR, news articles, debates, SNL skits (just kidding...sorta) etc... have made me feel like I can make a decision I feel good about because I am not just blindly marking a box.
But do you want to know something interesting?
Job is more informed than I am.
This man who cannot even vote yet (he is a permanent resident, not a citizen. Citizens can vote, not PR). I think he really has made the difference for me this time around. Yes I am older and wiser (a little), but his encouragement and enthusiasm to be informed has really been an example for me. He doesn't fall asleep halfway through each debate like I do (hey, they are on late in the East! ;). He is taking it seriously. He lives in this country so is doing his part to be an active and involved resident. I think many people born in this country could learn from him. I certainly have.
So, that is the state of politics in the Salazar home. We do what we can.
What is your experience with everything going on? Are you super involved? Or excited for it to be over with?(or both? Angela ;)
