In the modern day, when campaigns for office seem to be happening all the time, it is important to know how to see past the biases in what is reported and find the truth. We may never know the absolute Truth, but we can, with reason and forethought, come close enough to make rational choices. This excellent article covers 10 Ways to Become Politically Savvy by Overcoming the Biases. It comes from my newest favorite blog, The Illusion of Choice.

      Donna, you are welcome — and you’re so correct about the timeliness. Do you follow Ask Yer Mom?

      (It’s in my list of blogs I follow on the right side of this page, currently down around number 40. The list is in the order I started following them with the most recent at the top, so that is not a ranking.)

      She has shared a video of a Ted Talk about how to detect lies which is quite good.


  3. For me, how a politician says something is almost as important as what they say. So many just vomit key words with no real thought to the actual question they were asked. When I see that, I immediately knock them off my list of potential candidates. If you can’t be thoughtful when you speak, then you probably won’t be thoughtful when you act.
