Candidates put up signs hoping you’ll remember their name and vote for them because of name recognition.  Candidates do this because they know many of us won’t take time away from our “pursuit of happiness” to learn about the candidates and make informed choices.

If you don’t know a candidate’s background, motivation for running, and position on important issues, don’t vote for them!  To do so is to waste your opportunity to influence the direction of the country.

So don’t vote for the sign.  And don’t vote for a candidate because some group or individual endorses them.  LEARN about the candidates.  It’s easy with the Internet, it’s satisfying, and it is very good for the country!
