A bin of brooms and sweepers for sale, out in front of a specialty story on the streets of Sarasota, FL. Voters might want to apply them (or this concept) to the election this Fall.
A great still life.
I hope that America votes for common sense and a President who´s is trying to look after all levels of society and not just the well off ie. too finally get a health service that´s free for all...

@Anthony Morgan Lambert: Appreciate your thoughts; one truth we've come to learn in the USA is that there is no such thing as a "free" lunch. That includes anything the government provides - health service - etc. Taxpayers are the ones who provide what is "free" by having their salaries taxed away. Don't believe anything you see or hear in American media. No news provider is without a pretty strong bias of one kind or another - CNN, FOX, NBC, and every major newspaper and magazine. Our news is managed, one way or another. It must all be taken with many a grain of salt.
It would be refreshing to see the voters clean up their electoral system and get government back to working for them! Keep the faith Glenn! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: I'm with you, Eric. Party partisanship on both sides of the aisle here has gotten so bad, it feels like the only thing that will fix things is a clean sweep. Plus the population and the media might benefit from a little bit of soul-searching and an attitude adjustment toward themselves and those with whom they may disagree.
Great detail of an everyday items, nicely done

@Jen: Thank you Jen.
A clean sweep ... what a great idea, but who on earth can we get into office? You're so right about our media being biased; it's nearly impossible to get any pure information. And "free lunch" ... that is certainly a joke, which makes the health system issue a dinosaur!

@Judy aka L@dybug: "Who on earth... indeed." That is the problem - extracting the selfish and the power-minded ones and replacing them with people who are looking out for the "folks" and aren't all about perpetuating themselves in public office. We need statesmen and stateswomen, not party hacks. But who will step up? And worse, who will believe in and vote for them if they do? It has to happen at a local level, district by district. Seems almost too big a task - but it's possible... even if unlikely. So we gotta work within the system we've got and do our best to elect the good guys and gals.
PS: That is one very sharp image!

@Judy aka L@dybug: Thanks!
Yes, anyone who smells of tea bags should get swept.
