Voting is Patriotic (Michigan)
Dave Dempsey quotes an article from the Houston Chronicle:
The Great Lakes states aren't just key battlegrounds in Tuesday's elections. Fixing their imperiled "Rust Belt" economies and hollowed-out cities may be key to America's 21st century fate.The article continues:
Should we worry about this marketplace of 97 million people? Isn't it already the generator of 32 percent of America's gross state product, site of a rare constellation of distinguished state universities, birthplace of supercomputers, home base for famed corporations and close to a third of U.S. scientists and engineers?In another post, Dave Dempsey writes:
Gary Wilson puts it very well:Astonishing and somewhat depressing, hence Dave's title, vote your envirnmental values.
