Blue-Collar Michigan Scholars 
The Only Poll that Matters is 
Our Vote 
In The
November 8, 2016 General Election Rap:
TV - Newspaper Polls, you know, Who's Up or Down in Presidential Horse Race reflect "Likely Voters" or Democrats and Republicans. Independent vote is key factor, also.
Still Early and Polls can Change.
One Way or Another.
Don't be Swayed 
One Way or Another.
Decide for Yourself.
If Views/News outlets are constantly negative on one candidate, don't throw your shoe at the TV screen (it's plastic, will bounce off anyway, and you might scuff one of your blue suede shoes.)
Great song, by the way.

Keep an open mind.
Look for the Opposing Views from many sources. 
Research. Research. Research.
C-SpanVideo.Org Video Library Search C-Span Video Search archive is cool.
Type in the 2016 Presidential Candidates names you are interested in. Array of Campaign Rally Speeches, talks...etc. will appear. 
One can search for a various array of educational matter on a range of subjects.
C-Span.Org Main Page  
All Sides. 
No commercials!
C-Span's Video Archive search here, too.
Firstly, of course, visit the Presidential Candidates Official Websites. 
The Presidential Candidates also have Official Twitter, Facebook, Instagram...etc. social media sites.

We did it in school, college...etc. when we wrote our research papers. 
Or gave a speech in speech class.  
In debate.
Plain conversations... 
So we know what we're talkin' about.
Sports. Finance. New vehicle, appliances, healthy foods (read the nutrition label), what movie to rent or see. You get the drift.
Used many sources to learn.

TV wasn't our first resource, then.
TV isn't our first resource now.

Can one even imagine what it is like to run for President of The Great United States?
Thanks to all those Patriots that ran for US President over 240 years!
The least we can do is give all a fair hearing...then...
Devote some time to research your upcoming vote.
Can't wait to read the books the candidates write after this historic election on November 8, 2016.
You, too?
Sweet! Check out the Official Presidential Candidates books that they, the Presidential Candidates, have written is one of many ways.
Use your Library card.
Support your local library.
Or buy a copy of the Presidential Candidates books.
Whatever works best for you.

Test your own opinions on the candidate(s).
Give all candidates a fair hearing...
in your mind.
This will be the Greatest Presidential Election Turnout in US History.
The New voters, Never-Voted...etc. are not showing in the polls for whatever reasons. Probably, hard to poll (understandable).
Anyhoo, with Record Turnout in States Presidential Primary Elections 2016, due to Independent - Outsider candidates within their own parties (Bernie Sanders, Democrat Independent - Donald Trump, Republican) and this being an Outsider/ Independent vs. Status Quo/ Establishment Election, another "Change" Election, the First being President Obama's Election, it is going to be interesting watching another Once In A Lifetime and Generation Presidential Election. 
Better Trade Deals (More American Jobs for Everybody) and National Security are Top Priority American Electorate Issues. 

Highly possible and probable...
Who is Strongest On and Can Deliver on More Michigan Jobs and All US Jobs, Better Trade Deals and National Security for America will be do extremely well in Popular Voting and Electoral Votes.
Especially in blue-collar swing state Michigan(16 electoral votes) and other battleground states like Ohio(18), Pennsylvania(20)...etc.
Register to vote in Michigan by October 11, 2016.

Ross Perot's Historic Presidential Campaign Economic Conversations - Lectures on TV circa 1992 via C-Span Video. 
Ross Perot Campaign Commercial 1992 C-Span Video 
Further on down the page are more Ross Perot Conversations - Lectures on The American Economy.
Mr. Perot utilized charts, graphs and other scholarly devices in his educational and informative economic conversations with the American electorate. 
Talks and lectures are greatly enhanced with visual media that is clear, 
easily seen 
easily understood. 
Mr. Perot brought back memories of our school days' teachers and profs with his wonderful presentations. 
We listened as Mr. Perot spoke.
Analyzed his economic charts, graphs, whiteboards.
We began to understand a complex subject.
The American Economy.
Where it was,
Where it is presently (1992)
Where it could be in the future.

In 2016, 
one wonders 
Back in 1992..
If the TV screens were humongous (huge) then in 1992..
like they are now in 2016... 
Digital sound...
Would Ross Perot's economic conversations paired with visuals (charts, graphs, whiteboards...etc.) have been even more effective, with a greater impact on the American Electorate...
with Today's TV Technology?
Could it be done again...
Sointantly, Moe!

Great Job, Mr. Perot and thanks C-Span.
Dontcha love the web!
From your phone.
And now...

Blue Collar Michigan Scholars Walk A Mile In Our Red, White and Blue Collar Shoes Rap:
Since Global Trade (American Jobs Blue Collar, White Collar, heck, don't like labels howzabout the Red, White, and Blue American Collar Workers. E Pluribus Unum.) has directly affected US Manufacturing GDP. Think Manufacturing was 'bout 33 cents of every GDP dollar 30 years ago. Now, in 2016 Manufacturing GDP is just a few pennies over 10 cents now.
And the Trade Deficit has ballooned since then. Wonderful it's finally being talked about by a future President Trump or Clinton.
Seems alot of US have or know someone who has experienced plant and factory closures, downsizing...etc. Moi included.
We have an informed opinion since We worked in manufacturing in Michigan and other US States. Blue collared, white collared, all collared workers have experienced this.
When one hears on TV from the opinioned few about global trade, one wonders have they ever worked in a factory? As a production or skilled trades worker, supervisor, engineer...etc. Have they ever built, repaired skillfully, supervised, engineered...etc. something,anything in a shop factory or plant? See their job shipped out to another Country. Community property values drop? Pothole filled roads...etc. 
Give me and US a break!
Have they walked a mile in our shoes? If not, how in Sam's hill can they have an informed opinion? 
Give US A Break
Let's ask the opinionated few to tell us why they support trade deficits...deficits... that are approaching 800 billion American dollars a year. 
Hear crickets. 
Solution to sound of crickets.
Register to Vote in Michigan.
Vote for candidate that will deliver the greatest trade deals for America.
We need the good payin jobs now.
Who is most believable they can deliver?
N.O.W. not later for the U.S.A.
Let's start getting to a free trade, smarter trade whatever trade surplus.
One can feel the smoother roads in our community, already.
Also, any one remember Presidential Candidate Ross Perot doing those economic infomercials about 25 yrs ago on Sunday nights. He lectured on trade deficits, budget deficits and other trade related and Nafta issues.
He held up large charts, diagrams to the TV viewing audience. 
Said Nafta would lead to the sucking sound of jobs leaving the US.
Amazing how he was right!
Would be wonderful if Mr. Trump, Mrs. Clinton...etc. could do a one-on-one with easily understandable and viewed charts,diagrams about Global Trade like Ross Perot. If they can't afford TV Perot like infomercial. Try You Tube, Facebook Twitter livestream, app...etc.

Back to Third Parties Independent Republican Democrat Outsiders Parties Websites Rap...
Politics 1 been around almost 20 yrs. Street cred. Politics 1 has a great page listing all the Independent third parties in the United States 2016 and all the Political Partys including our Democrat and Republican Parties who have in US Political History listened to, implemented ideals, tenets..etc. of various Third Party's into their Republican and Democrat Platforms.
Politics 1 All the US Political Parties Page

Was watching C-Span this a.m. and they were talkin' 'bout third parties. Each US State has individual rules concerning placement of third partys on their state's ballots.
Also, they have broadcast and will be broadcasting some of the Third Party conventions. If you missed any convention, including Dem or GOP, there is video archive.
Also, 3rd party candidates have appeared on Cspan as have Republican and Democrat candidates.
Cspan United States Third Parties Videos History

This 2016 Presidential Election is about Change, in the Form of Dollars Earned from J.O.B.S Brought Back to America. Good Payin' Jobs...Manufacturing and all types of Jobs and Careers.

Talkin' Turkey and following through with solutions bringing back our Manufacturing Jobs and other jobs to Michigan and the rest of the US.
And while you're at it...
More jobs.
We want it all.
This is America.
The Greatest.
In the History of the World.
Bar none.
We don't want a political bologna sandwich promises, anymore.
Real dollars in our paychecks, not...
Like The Good Old Days!
Thank You.

In Michigan, and all through the US.
If there is any doubt, look to Senator Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's Michigan Presidential Primary Election Campaigns. Both won their primary campaigns in Michigan and other states.
In blue collar battleground swing states like Michigan, Trade Deal issues are key along with national security and other extremely important issues.
The Independent vote; US voters who vote either/or Dem, GOP, third party up or down ticket. A political mix. Each election, looking not just at the party, but at the person and their beliefs, and voting accordingly.
Along with Traditional Democrat and Republican voters...
Determines the outcome of who wins the U.S. Presidency in 2016.
Turnout important and key.
People who regularly vote in all elections
First time voters.
Those who have never voted...etc.

This is a politically historic, change election in our great country, the U.S.A.
For whatever reason.
It is what it is.
This is an "outsiders" election.
Not "establishment".
Change is in the air.
Michigan's 16 electoral votes will be important in determining who is elected.
Take part in Michigan and our Country's Nov 8, 2016 General Election.
Vote for Who You Want To.
It's an American Right.
Your One Vote and Your Opinion is just as important as the cable views/news gentlemen and gentlewomen on the TV.
Do your own research.
Don't depend on TV.
It is just one source.
We have this thing called the internet...the WWW...World Wide Web...its accesible from your phone.
But you knew that.
We research every day of our lives.
We just don't think about it.
It's automatic.
Before we buy a new vehicle.
Buy appliances.
New smartphone, computer
Move into a new apartment.
Choose a school for the kids.
Buy a gift for our loved ones.
Choose a Dentist or Doctor or
A Hospital.
Look for a job...
to pay for all of the above.
Isn't choosing the next President of the United States one of the most important things we as citizens can do for ourselves
and more importantly...
Our Country.
First...drum roll again, please...
The candidate's Official websites!
The horse's mouth.
Their words.
What they said.
Not out of context.
What they believe in.

Live streams.
Test your opinions with views from the other candidate(s) on specific issues and solutions important to you and your country.
Look at all sides.
Then decide.
Volunteer to help the candidate, party...etc. if you desire.
Most importantly...

Also, check out
