Facts!

The most frustrating observation regarding todays political culture is the lack of evidence based decision making, and the apparent emotionality involved in voting. Emotions are involved; however, I want to encourage a movement focused on data and facts. I am not blameless, I am a conservative democrat who has undoubtedly made too many assumptions that were not truly vetted. Daily I see folks from the left and right purport very strong, and aggressive positions that are based on bullet points from CNN, FOX, MSNBC or perhaps based in nothing as all, just a subconscious framework that stems from childhood upbringing, social circles, media, the alignment of the stars or the moon or who the hell knows. No doubt there is a fascinating psychology that could be explored. The point is they are uniformed, unstudied, which equals danger.

Focus on the fact
