Millions upon millions of secret spending by the fossil fuel industry that was unleashed by the disastrous 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision - this money not only fuels the campaigns of many candidates; it also represents a threat to those who don't toe the polluter line on climate change.
Everyone that I'm friends with does not have the same party standing. For the most part, my friends are Democrats, but not everyone is, so a lot of times, we just have candid conversations. Sometimes that's the best way that we can educate each other and come to our own decisions about bills and candidates and policies.
As I have done in every election since I started voting so many years ago, I always like to take my time and examine the two candidates, see not only the two candidates but the policies they will bring in, the people they will bring in, who they might appoint to the Supreme Court, and look at the whole range of issues before making a decision.
