So i have a question. I dont know much about politics but i want to start understanding everything. How do i learn or understand which congressmen is saying the truth or not. which rep or Demo is someone i want to vote or not to vote? I dont know if im making my self clear. I just want to know more. After this whole stupid almost shutdown of the government and them not paying my husband (ARMY) i want to get into it more. Understand etc. So i can vote for the right person or not. I try to watch CNN and read websites but sometimes i just dont get it or believe if what a senator, president or congressmen/woman is saying is the truth. Do i need to buy the newspaper? lolAnswer Question

More seriously, the only thing you can really do is keep track of how your elected officials for your state vote on each issue as it comes up. There are a few sites that help do that:
It's really not about what they say, it's about what they do, and how they vote. Read carefully, it may be they're voting against something they support, except that it includes a single clause they absolutely don't support.

Just look at what everyone does not what they say, including the people on here. Don't watch fox because they have more "opinion shows" and don't tell people what the difference is. They expect you just know the facts from opinions, msnbc is on the complete other side of the road so either of those is hard to watch for me. CNN is ok imo

Next question overall
Do you really think the judges do what is in the best interest for the child?
