This is NOT a post to try and convince you to vote one way or the other – that is a decision that you must make yourself, based upon your thoughts, beliefs and convictions.

What I wouldn’t give to strap Biz and Evan into some chairs and make them listen to this in JAWs or VoiceOver today. Seriously guys?

Experienced decision makers surround themselves with factual data so that they can weigh the benefits and risks of any crucial decision.
