Vote Smart President, Richard Kimball, is hitting the road this fall to give voter education speeches along the East Coast. His multimedia presentation on why facts matter will cover:
The Founding Fathers' fear that if they cast power out to the people, they would not know enough to self-govern successfully and "factions" would take control.
How fun, famous and dangerous political commercials manipulate people emotionally instead of informing them intellectually.
"A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is still putting on its shoes." - Mark Twain. The growth of lies and the people's expectation and acceptance of them.
Practical means and demonstrations of defending your right to the facts, the truth and the reality that our democracy is so dependent on, including Vote Smart’s cutting-edge new tools for voters’ self-defense: VoteEasy, OnPoint, My Vote Smart, ISpy, & Political Galaxy.
