Final Comments from the Compass Desk
In our message-driven society, the amateur experts always have a message. But there are no risk consequences for their err(s). They make predictions just like some politicians who make big promises.  

Our point is that you should decide on your political candidates carefully. It is not a beauty contest. Vote on Tuesday.  Choose them on the criteria of the Bigger Picture.  Good luck.
