My favorite political commercial of the season
put out by the AARP to remind voters not to fall for the image and the glitz, not to vote for a candidate just because "He seems like a nice guy."

1. But I hate the "Don't Vote" meme. It may encourage not voting
because a person feels that they're not informed enough.

And they need to feel that they don't have to spend weeks of effort researching things.

And then they need to VOTE.

3. Let's hope that only the ignoramuses (of the type that vote Republican
because they like the candidate's teeth or some other silly reason) DO decide not to vote.

The people who ARE well in-formed will take it as encouragement, and those in the middle will perhaps be inspired to do the lightweight kind of research that requires only reading the daily paper.

2. Excellent!
People shouldn't have to be taught that they need to learn something about the people they're voting for, but they do. Those ads do a good job reminding them without preaching. :think:
