Re: way way WAY OT/political

I am interested in many issues, and not particularly in others.  However,
what bothers me is that at this point in time, so very many people are
virtually single issue types.  They look at a candidate and judge him solely
on the issue that is most important to them and don't even try to see a
bigger picture.    Usually this is an issue that pertains to the voter
themselves.  I understand looking out for issues that pertain to you
personally, but I believe it is important to make an effort to see the
country as a whole.  For instance, I saw a brief news item about politics in
Wyoming - or was it Montana?  Anyway, these ranchers were staunch
Republicans for generations.  However, now that the govt allowed mining in
their area, they were planning to vote Democrat.  Then there are those who
say they care about the quality of life for all, yet dismiss all information
on damage to our air, national forests, education, water quality,  food
quality, etc, in favor of a single issue like banning gay marriages.  Be
careful, you may get what you vote for!
