Politics & Issues

Hi, my name is Dan and I'm an undecided voter.

It's not because I'm apathetic or uninformed. I actually watched most of the coverage of both conventions. I think the only major speech I skipped was Biden's, 'cause I was just too doggone tired that night. I'm undecided because, rather than being a loyal party member, I tend to vote based on issues, and thus I agree (and disagree) with both parties on some points.

Right now, I haven't decided which side I agree with more, or which one I think will be best for the country as a whole. So, I figured I'd write about where I stand on various issues, and see if I can figure out which party is closest to my point of view.

So, in the coming days, I'll post some thoughts about things like defense, the economy, energy, education, etc (and other things that start with e). I'm sure Mark and Rhet will help point out things I overlook or misunderstand, and many of you will help clarify the candidates' various positions. Hopefully, by the time the dust settles I'll have an idea of which candidate should get my support.

It'll be an interesting experiment.

Such a genteel invitation to a slug fest! . . . just kidding. Should be an interesting experiment, in the cyber salon!

Hi Dan: good job Dan... gee, I'm STILL an undecided voter and I guess by the looks of things, I'm not the only one...... are you opening up the proverbial political 'pandora's box' here?... good luck in your 'search' for clarification... love, Dad
