"All truth passes through 3 stages:
FIRST, it is ridiculed
SECOND, it is violently opposed
THIRD, it is accepted as being self-evident."
~Arthur Schopenhauer, German Philosopher
Future generations are counting on us to be informed voters. No matter what we hear in the media, we must seek out the truth for ourselves and sometimes fight for that truth. We must remember history's past successes and failures, and learn from them. We must be informed on the issues that impact our daily lives and informed on the candidates who vote to spend our hard-earned tax dollars.
But all too often we, the public, do not receive all the information or the truth to make informed decisions for ourselves and our families. We watch the news or try to keep up on current events but the truth is....we really do not know what is going on behind closed doors with government at the local, school, county, state, and federal levels.
When voting, especial in local or school elections, we have a tendency to not know who we are voting for, their past voting record, or how their decisions have impacted our community in the past. Like many citizens we do our civic duty. But we do not know about the candidate or the issues and vote blindly:
~ We vote for the person who ... has the most lawn signs
~ We vote for the person who ... went to school with our family member or neighbor
~ We vote for the person who ... our parents or friends want us to vote for
~ We vote for the person who ... has or does not have children
~ We vote for the person who ... we received literature from at the polls
~ We vote for the person who ... is a female (or a man)
~ We vote for the person who ... has a familiar or friendly last name
~ We vote for the person who ... is an Italian, Latino, Caucasian, etc.
~ We vote for the person who ... comes to a lot of events or who we have met in person
~ We vote for the person who ... we received a lot of mail from
This is an educational site to hopefully help you easily decipher and understand misleading stories about issues from the media, people, elected officials, or special interest groups who just want power or your money/tax dollars. We hope that by understanding the motivation behind issues, it will help empower you, instead of frustrating you.
You will be provided with simple tools to get to the truth when faced with amazing stories and/or headlines that are so horrific that they spur you into action or move you to tears.
We will look at a few local issues from a former Councilwoman and Mayor Pro Tem in Michigan who continues to be a very vocal advocate for truth and justice for the residents and taxpayers around her hometown.
This great book sheds some light on the subject of TRUTH:
Media, elected officials, schools, government employees, unions, etc....
believing the lies and our lack of a demand for honesty, integrity,
accountability, and the truth are actually killing us.
BOOK: 'How Do You Kill 11 Million People? by Andy Andrews
Why the Truth Matters More Than You Think'
One of the simple solutions is searching for the truth ourselves and standing up and speaking that truth...
Where would we be without the courage of Giordano (Filippo) Bruno in the 1500's?
He told people the truth...the Sun, not the Earth, is the center of the universe. The results...
Who else do you know who risked so much in order that the truth be known?
