The women are nice older ladies with gray hair that are always so happy to spreading their political views–of which I mostly agree on. Although today’s handout entitled “The Federal Budget affects everybody” seems very… tried. You can always argue that not enough is spent on Children’s Heathcare/Education, etc. Which are indeed good issues, but I want more reasons why we need to spend that money rather than just saying we should spend it. (sidenote: there’s a link to the True Majority Oreo cookie animation on the federal budget on this flyer.)
Usually there is only one handout, but today there was double the bang with a second flyer. (Starting to feel like a protest where there are too many messages clouding the issues at hand, but…) This one is for the Collaborative Voter Project.
