I don’t write about politics very often. There are a variety of reasons for this, the main one being that I just don’t like writing about politics. In the past few years I’ve become very interested in the political process, so I read a lot about it and try to follow the current issues and trends. But, in this particular area, I’m a sponge and not a faucet. There are many people who write about politics much better than I could, so I leave it to them.

I’m making an exception today for two reasons: First, I truly believe this year’s presidential election is one of the most important in U.S. history. There are so many issues that have been building up over the past twenty years or so that will be coming to a head soon, probably within the next decade. It is so important that we make informed decisions now to insure freedom and prosperity in the future.

My other reason for bringing this up is also about prosperity in the future: I would really like to win a hundred thousand dollars. But, I’m not just thinking of myself — you can win a hundred thousand bucks, too. If you are a registred U.S. voter, go to Vote or Not and sign up for their sweepstakes. Not registered? You can do that while you’re there. And, if you win, I win. Isn’t America great?

Now that you’re registered and have that all-important right to vote, make the most of it. Visit Project Vote Smart and learn about the candidates and where they stand on issues that are important to you. Then, choose wisely.
