since we are all intelligent people here, I think we’d all like to unravel the rhetoric and claims of the presidential candidate’s as we consider the serious responsibility of choosing our next president.
I found this fantastic website called “Project Vote Smart” where it lists the ACTUAL VOTING RECORDS of all the politicians in office.
This is not a political ad for any one candidate mind you, it simply lets the voting record be known of each politician on each issue. The bills are grouped by type of issue or problem, to let you know where a candidate stands on a certain issue.
You can go to http://www.vote-smart.org, once on the Home Page, you can choose the Tab for Candidates, then click on the person/s whom you are interested in researching.
This will tell you each of the bills that they voted for, whether it was a Y/N or NV, meaning they didn’t vote on that issue.
A politician can talk to me until they’re blue in the face, but I don’t care what they “say” they will do, I care about what they’ve done in the past. This website shows me what they stand for in very clear, easy to see terms.
There is also an extensive biography and background information for each candidate.
Knowledge is power, have an empowering day,
