Vote Smart’s Richard Kimball
Monroe Country Public Library Auditorium
Monday, November 20, 7:00 p.m.
You are invited to hear Richard Kimball, Vote Smart President, give a multi-media presentation on why facts matter.
- The Founding Fathers’ fear that if they cast power out to the people, they would not know enough to self-govern successfully and “factions” would take control.
- How funny, famous and dangerous political commercials manipulate people emotionally instead of informing them intellectually.
- The growth of lies and how the people’s expectation of them has turned to acceptance of them.
- OnPoint: A practical approach and demonstration of how to easily and instantly defend your right to the facts at any time and in any place right over your cell phone.
