For the Record 

Are You a Sucker?

P. J. Barnum once said, “There is a sucker born every minute.” He made millions using that philosophy with his circus.

If democracy is to survive, we need to not be suckers when we vote. Our record so far has not been so good.

Millions are now being spent to convince us that climate change is a hoax. The money is coming from those fearing loss of profits.

Lessons should be learned from past history. Remember when we were told that cigarettes did not cause cancer, or that asbestos in the workplace was no danger?

We need to demand truth and action from our elected leaders. Recently, the Railroad Commission approved continuation of allowing hundreds of uncapped oil wells to continue to be open. These wells are daily spewing dangerous gas into our air. Soon after the Commission ruled, its chair received a multi-thousand-dollar gift from the oil industry. That chairman is seeking reelection on the November ballot. Take the time to learn his name and vote.

It's your chance to not be a sucker.
