Voters must check their sources
I am concerned about the direction or country is heading. Not to weigh in on the political turmoil that presently occupies the printed and visual media. My concern is about the people, the voters.
They are the ultimate judges of the political environment we now live in. A large percentage of voters seem so uninformed. With so many information streams available to help form an opinion, so many seem to ignore the obvious, that is what puzzles me. When I hear something, I won’t take it as the truth, without verifying with multiple sources. An informed public is the best weapon to combat the lies and untruths so prevalent today.
The ancient Greek philosopher Socrates once said “Citizens who take no interest in the affairs of their government, are doomed to live under the rule of fools.”
