Presidential Debates Aren’t About Information

Did you learn anything from last night’s Presidential Debate? Here’s what I learned: Biden thinks Trump is a clown. Trump thinks Biden is weak and dumb. Neither of those things is helpful. Is this really a good way to choose a president?

Douglas Rushkoff said it best: “No one ‘won’… certainly not Americans.”

Putting hope in one source of information, especially this one, is a disaster waiting to happen. Democracy requires thought. Don’t believe the hype. Do your homework. Think. Study.

And then, please, vote.
