The 2008 US election season certainly seems to be one of the more important decisions to be made in recent memory (seem like that every 4 years, though). In addition to issues like fighting terrorism, military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, health care and energy among many others, the economy has certainly dominated the discussion the last few weeks.
Fears of a US and a global recession have many people worried about their jobs and the companies they work for. Innovation, ingenuity and a strong work ethic are bedrock principles for many of us. Over the long term, manufacturing and commercial services will survive and thrive in the US regardless of who wins this election.
Go to the polls and vote for the Republicans or the Democrats or even some 3rd party candidate. Vote for Congress. Vote in your local races. Vote for whomever you think will be the best elected representative for you. You do make a difference. Vote. Just Vote.
