That most of America just coasts through what the media dispenses. There is so much more "under the surface" and everyone who cares about this country, about our Democracy, needs to read further. To study. To go beyond what they hear on the "news" or "read" in the paper. It's so distorted and so skewed - that for anyone who wishes to make meaningful change in this country, it's imperative to research and read. Go beneath the facade of controlled media BS.

I thank you for posting this, as it makes a valid point. I only wish that more people like your boss were open minded enough to follow suit. There is so much more about all the candidates. And we owe it to ourselves, our children and the future of this country to make totally informed decisions about the candidate we will vote for. Our very democracy depends upon it.
