Learn about candidates before deciding how to vote

It's that season again when the politicians reinvent themselves (hoping voters won't check their records), trying to convince voters to either elect them or re-elect them.

Most of the political ads they or their political friends put out just attack the other guy without telling you what they will "do for you or to you."

I read and hear a lot of complaints about these politicians, especially the incumbents, about how they are developers' darlings or bought and paid for by the special interests. But come time to vote, the people who are doing the most complaining will vote for them again because either they know their names or have the same party affiliation but have selective amnesia when it comes to their records in office.

They blindly expect a different outcome from these same politicians if they vote them back in. That is the definition of insanity, "to keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results."

So before you vote, check the candidates record and who donates to their campaign. Be sure to vote and vote wisely, after all it's in your best interests to protect your future and environment. You have to live here, too.
