Since NH prides itself on being a state of independently thinking people I wanted to share a great website for educating yourself regarding political candidates:
THOMAS (Library of Congress)
This site shows you the FULL text of bills, their sponsors, and other important information; free of any "paraphrasing" (which usually leaves out important details). It is VERY time consuming to research who voted for what and then read the bills to see why/why not but you will be amazed at how quickly you can cut through the bull and learn what the people you are voting for/against really believe/support.
As mentioned in earlier threads I've consistently found cases where one candidate will be slammed for voting against a bill that on the surface seems great (the part you hear about) but has awful provisions (the part you do not) or another will get slammed for voting for something that looks bad on the surface- but has critically important provisions.
Anyway; just wanted to share with my fellow NH citizens this political season. To save time I generally just research bills that are the topic of various "attack" adds or the like...
