We're Getting Close
|No matter where you live, the elections are getting closer everyday. It is a sad commentary that in our country many people think it is not important to get out and vote. I generally have a view that says if you don't vote, keep your opinions to your self.|
I believe our country is better when we are part of the process and thereby part of the solution. None of us may like every decision our governmental leaders make, but at least we have a say in who is making those decisions. Folks in places like China, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, and Egypt have no real voice in choosing their leaders.
And so today, I would like to call your attention to three sites I check almost daily to keep up and stay informed as we draw near our individual election day. The first is Conservatism with Heart, from Dee Vantuyl. Dee is a conservative Christian mom from Missouri and part of the Republican Central Committee of her state. Which means she is pretty well connected. Since she is also from a battleground state, her take on Missouri politics is not to be missed. You can also catch her on Internet Radio.
Next up is Mike Miller. No, not my brother Mike that some of you know, but another Miller, from South Carolina. Mike's web site is called Mike's America. He is conservative, can't stand the liberal side of the equation, but is generally fair, albeit partisan. The best of his site is to be found in the comments. Mike is relentless in defending the GOP viewpoints, but will alway give you a chance to make your point. Unless of course you are just plain nuts, and then you get to become one of a growing number of Moonbats. So far, I have not made that list!
Finally, check out Truthdig. This is the online journal of former Los Angeles Times [back when it was a great newspaper] writer Bob Scheer. Scheer is a dyed in the wool liberal and will make some of you want to wring his neck, but I believe it is always best to look at an issue from all sides to understand it better. Scheer can also be heard on KCRW's political show Left, Right & Center.
So there you have it. Now it is up to you. Stay informed, and remember to vote. All of these links are also permantly posted on this blog so you can easily find them.
