Time is Winding Down...

As we close out 2007 and head into the 2008 election year I thought it might be helpful to recommend a resource that is available for concerned voters called "On the Issues," found at www.ontheissues.org. On the Issues is a "non-partisan information [repository] for voters in the Presidential election, so that votes can be based on issues rather than on personalities and popularity. We get our information daily from newspapers, speeches, press releases, and the Internet..."

On the Issues documents all findings and does a good job of pointing out the candidates stance on whatever issue may be of concern for you, making it easy to compare. I've found the graphic summary (I am a visual person, after all) to be especially interesting. Here's a sample of those graphics and the Positional statement for the top Republican candidates (in alphabetical order) as they appear on the web site:

Rudy Giuliani is a Libertarian Conservative.

Mike Huckabee is a Hard-Core Conservative.

John McCain is a Populist-Leaning Conservative.

Ron Paul is a Moderate Libertarian.

Mitt Romney is a Populist-Leaning Conservative.

Wherever you find yourself on the political spectrum...and I'm sure we all have different opinions...I encourage you to do your "due diligence" and research the issues that are most important to you and your family before casting your vote in the coming weeks.

Happy New Year to you all!
