Do the vetting process on who you elect from whatever party you are with.
A lot at stake here.

And just how am I supposed to do this "vetting"? I don't have the resources to uncover the truth. I have to rely on the internet and that source is highly suspect. I would read newspapers but I discovered over twenty years ago that the national news covers for the democrats and lies about the Republicans. TV is worse than newspapers.
Thank goodness for Lucianne.com. At least their news is 50% correct

The way I have found to check out a politician is to find a record of his voting history, speeches, associates and thoughts on current and past topics.
Pres Obama exposes who he is in his speeches and his record of his intentions. Many times there is that one word, one sentence or paragragh that exposes him.
Does a politician attack their opponent with facts or scare commercials. That commercial of granny being pushed over the cliff in the NY special election was a prime example of scare tactics. The people bought it too. Democrats are very good at scare tactics.
That vid and transcript I posted of Pres Obama on politics and religion exposes him very well on his intentions and how he wants to debate with religion.

By the time most people get to vote, the only choices are "bad" and "worse" or as most call it "my party" and "the other party".
Got plenty of pre-election blog entries & comments to show how people responded to early criticism/vetting of O's speeches, interviews, etc. Even his "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket" was met with a collective yawn.

One thing I could get almost everyone to disagree with me on was that his would be a continuation of the previous 8 years. Finally, more and more columnists and newsletter writers have come to the same conclusion. Too little, too late.
