If you actually watched the debate...

I'm proud of you.
I'm proud of you.
I hope that you're as proud as I am proud of you.
I'm proud of you.
I hope that you are proud
And that you're
Learning how important you are,
How important each person you see can be.
Discovering each one's specialty
Is the most important learning.
I'm proud of you.
I'm proud of you.
I hope that you're as proud as I am proud of you.
I'm proud of you.I hope that you are proud of you, too!

(sorry, I could not find the music video on youtube)

I know we don't all share the same political views, but all I can hope for is that you gained some educational insight on the way our country "works" and how you are affected by and directly responsible for what you chose on November 4th ... atleast for the next 4 years.

So VOTE proudly, if you don't VOTE, don't complain!

Also, please know that the current Afghan Commander is General McKiernan NOT General McClellan... (he was fired by President Lincoln). Go back and watch Palin's "stance on Afghan policy" if you do not know what I'm talking about there...
Moral of that story - Don't believe everything you hear on TV kiddos!

I watched the debate and am not sure if we are really covering anything new here. Also, since most of the questions were written using words and phrases that were at least 12th grade level, I am not sure the questions were from "the town"--town forum. It all seems so staged doesn't it?
Regardless of who wins, I think we the people are in trouble. And, that is all I have to say about that..(F. Gump).

I am proud of you too :)

Seriously though, have you been as let down as I have over the past few debates? Lame.

Everybody has the opportunity to misspeak. Why just the other night, Obama declared “I favor nuclear power.” According to FactCheck.org: That’s a stronger statement than we've heard him make before. As recently as last December, he said, “I am not a nuclear energy proponent.”

Yep, people say all kinds of crazy things in debates and here is another example of misspeak/misinformation:
"The idea he [speaking of Cheney] doesn't realize that Article I of the Constitution defines the role of the vice president of the United States, that's the Executive Branch. He works in the Executive Branch. He should understand that. Everyone should understand that." --Biden

Actually it is Article II that defines the Executive Branch. :)

On another voting issue, what are your thoughts though on voters who are not informed on election day voting? Despite all the info out there, there are some people who say they aren't keeping up with politics, but they'll walk into a booth in November and randomly pick someone. Should you vote just to say that you did or stay home?

I can't really comment about voting, as I'm not from the US, but I do want that Barbie tee!
