Being an election year, candidates are all clamoring for a reason... a reason for you to vote for them, and a reason for you to fear voting for anyone else. The Democrat's equivalent to the Big Head James Carville once said "it's the economy stupid." The problem is it wasn't then and from a historical perspective it isn't now.
If you haven't already voted in the Democratic primary today, take a look at the piece below put together by Drew Carey and Reason.tv. In it, Carrey takes a look at the economic realities of being in the middle class and how that compares to the rhetoric of TV pundits and politicians. You may want to consider what your chosen candidate is saying and whether or not it has anything to do with reality.
By the way - the same goes for Republicans even though you won't be voting in a primary until June.
Is it really the economy or are we letting fear make us stupid?
