In 1789 Thomas Jefferson stated, “wherever the people are well informed they can be trusted with their own government.” As usual, Jefferson was correct and that is why we created this blog. In modern America, the voters know way more about television shows, sports and celebrity gossip than about the candidates running in our elections.
We will be discussing the important issues facing our country in an independent and thoughtful manner on the Free Voter Blog. Sean Hannity and Rachel Maddow are not good fits for this blog. Join this effort by reading our posts and providing us with feedback through comments.
No one can believe that the current harsh partisanship we see in Washington, D.C. is best for our country. Instead, the Free Voter Blog is advocating for an INFORMED and INDEPENDENT electorate. We believe you should not just vote the party line, but rather follow the campaigns, study the issues and vote for the best candidate in all elections. This blog will set an example for reasoned debate between thoughtful people who truly care about our nation’s future. Please join us on this positive adventure in democracy.
