On the critical need for an educated populace and transparent government

"A popular government without popular information or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to Farce, or a Tragedy, or perhaps both. Knowledge will forever govern ignorance. And a people who mean to be their own Governors, must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives."

-James Madison


Here in colorado we were able to cast our vote a while ago and many of us did.

For those who haven't or couldn't today is THE day. It looks like the country is in for a big turn out and history is in the making whatever your choice.

Hopefully you've considered the issues through all the sophistry and rhetoric.

Hopefully reason, inclusion and clear thinking surface as the new focus for national governance.

Hopefully most of us will excersize our basic civic duty and VOTE.
