Ok, I'm getting a little sick and tired of hearing this crap, that is supposedly true, being posted all over the place, saying "this candidate did this..." and "this candidate did that..." Come on ladies!!!!...you're smarter than that! We need to get past the mindset of "Well if we saw it on youtube, it MUST be true!" Or how about these email forwards that are being posted all over the place. Honestly...they are comparable to the ones that land in your inbox saying "If you don't pass this on to 15 people in the next 5 minutes, Bloody Mary will come out from underneath your bed at 3 am and kill you!"
I mean really...I know we're in the age of the computer, but don't you think that just maybe, this election might be important enough do do a little research of your own beyond that?!
Right on. I am shocked at the way I have seen moms making their political decisions. It's frightening actually?

I TOTALLY agree. I don't understand anyone going off the word of mouth when it comes to something as serious as the leader of our country. I plan to vote to Obama/Biden BUT I thoroughly checked out McCain/Palin to make sure I was getting all the facts on both sides. If I went off commercials and what others said, I would never have known the facts I know about McCain that are interesting and educational.

I want to add, that I think the thing that astounds me the most is the bottomless ignorance, the openly hateful attitudes, and the intolerance I have seen among women here. I have to wonder, as a nation, are we really this uneducated and mean? I am voting for Obama, however, I don't automatically wish harm on moms voting for McCain. I enjoy and good discussion with a well informed Repub mom. It is only when we lack basic respect for one another, or we divide ourselves up into neat little "Dem" and "Rep" boxes, that party affiliation becomes a problem.
