I am obsessed with the current presidential campaign. Obsessed to the point where it irritates me and I have to put a cap on how many blogs/opinion pieces/comments I read because I tend to get angry. Angry at ignorance. It is no secret that I am liberal to the core, especially when it comes to social issues such as the environment, gay rights and especially women’s rights. So you can only imagine how offended I am that Sarah Palin is on any ticket this year.
(*I realize that all of us involved in this awesome blog project may not be on the same page politically. It is never my intention to offend, but I will say how I feel.)
Alas. The subject of this post is not Palin. I am an ardent supporter of self-education when it comes to politics. I would like to introduce you to a web site which I find helpful for sorting out what is true and what is false in this increasingly negative campaign. It is a non-partisan, non-profit site that fact checks all claims made by all candidates. I encourage you to learn! Be an active voter! Be excited! Most importantly, be present on November 4th.
