Mr. Richard Kimball, president of "Vote Smart" is hosted by the Space Coast Progressive Alliance, in cooperation with the League of Women Voters of the Space Coast.
The American Political Science Association honored Project Vote Smart as “The best source for accurate political information on the World Wide Web” (www.votesmart.org). Its Board of Directors has been a carefully balanced "Who's Who" of top political leaders of recent decades, who have been working to raise our nation's political discourse. Most of its staff are volunteers from across America, who work together in a non-partisan fashion to help educate voters with the best information available.
Richard is on "THE FACTS MATTER TOUR" around America. This event features his 50-minute, four-part, multimedia presentation on Voter’s Self-Defense, including:
1. The Founders’ fear of ignorance should they cast power out to the people.
2. Entertaining but dangerous political commercials and how they manipulate people emotionally instead of informing them intellectually.
3. The people’s acceptance of lies, and their crumbling right to the facts.
4. Demonstrations on how to defend your right to the facts, the truth and the reality that our democracy is so dependent upon.
