By overwhelming public request, the Orange Juice Blog is KEEPING IT SIMPLE here.  Most of these recommendations are from Greg Diamond and/or Vern Nelson, who both happen to be Democrats.  When Vern and Greg disagree that will be noted.  When our other bloggers, such as Ryan who is a Republican, agree or disagree, that will also be noted.

When we can, for if you’re interested, we will link to our previous oceans of commentary of why we made each of these recommendations.  Now VOTE!  (But maybe not TOO early if you’re still not sure…)
