The ony thing I will say going into this

Voting is your duty. Do it, and do it wise. 

I will not tell you who you should vote for, but remember one thing.

This is the nastiest, least factual, worst choice election I have ever had the unfortunate luck to witness. 

And no matter who wins, we all lose. Congress will find a way to screw things up, as they always do. The question that you have to answer is, which candidate is better suited to keep you working and in a job?

Forget the rest, forget Iraq - Iraq does not put food on your table each night. Education is only a topic to fool you, everyone needs to rely upon themselves for proper education. The government is not your mother.

No, the only issue there really is - and it encompasses health care and all the rest - is the economy. Is it better for you to get a tax break at the expense of your boss?

Remember who pays your bills. In reality - it's not you, it's your boss. Sure, a 3k tax break would be great for me - my customers would spend a bit more. But my bosses, the owners of the company - they would be left out - and possibly hit with more taxes. That's not good for me. The offset does not quite work out. 

Vote with your brain, not your heart. But I suppose that is the overwhelming debate between Repub and Democrat.

Anyway - good luck. And may we all not suffer too much after this.

At $10 billion a month, it would be all-too convenient for American's to "forget Iraq." I'm sure the families of soldiers would have a different view than you on that one.

Your false choice on the "boss" example only makes sense if you are in a very small business where the top revenue collector is within 1 step of the lowest worker. Although frankly ignoring the middle class is what's given Republicans such a poor choice in this election to begin with.

That kind of fear - that you should appease the master at your expense because of what he could do to you if they aren't stroked - that's a pretty ol' timey scenario. I suspect that kind of interpretation is starting to lose traction in Southwest VA. After all, we've watched the "bosses" have their way with our cities.

Appeasing your owners at the expense of some families eating at all is an easy choice for me and many of your customers. Interesting it's so difficult for you.

Ok we got through that problem of who to vote for now let us get on the the next fun problem..........most importantly to me at least is the uranium mining in VA. Hope everyone does the same mining of information to find out what they should say in a comment to the VA Energy Commission re the preliminary study for mining. We should have a lot to say considering we're always collecting clothes, food, $$ for the coal miners. We're really familiar with what can happen to miners and earth when we mine.
