Letter to the Editor: Voting counts
My small town of Scofield has always had an extremely high voter turnout rate. I am proud of that. It is important that everyone casts their vote. But just showing up and placing your vote isn't enough in this election. Now more than ever before it is crucial that we, the American public, cast informed and well-thought out votes. The issues and consequences are serious, and we all must do our best to separate fact from opinion.
I encourage everyone to use their own due diligence on the issues and facts. I believe that America has a choice: It can continue to grow the economy and create new jobs as the President's policies are doing; or it can raise taxes on American families and small businesses, hurting economic recovery and future job creation.
I also believe that President Bush's pro-growth agenda, strong education system, and policies to help American workers gain the skills to secure good jobs are the right ways to respond to the challenges of our growing and changing economy.
But don't just take my word on it. Really study out the facts and vote!
