Presidential Candidates and Where they stand on the issues….

Who are they and what are they spinning? We all know they will say what the majority wants to hear….no surprise there. That is the game of politics. Bashing the current President and pointing out all of his mistakes is a major part of the game. Bashing the opponent and twisting any and everything that can be possibly twisted to make the other person look bad. That is also the political game. Can an honest mud free campaign be run? You’re kidding right?

It comes down to what issue you are willing to waffle on and what issue you won’t budge an inch. What are the issues? Depends on who you ask…….

I asked my husband. Some of the important issues we will be facing with the next President per Capital G Geek are……Who they will pick to replace the current aging Supreme Court Justices. Immigration, which he feels could possibly tear this country apart. Gay and Lesbian agenda. Socialized Medicine and Health Care. Foreign Policy. Social Security and Medicare/ Medicaid Programs. Education whether it be private, public or homeschooling. The list goes on……..and on……I’m sure you could add a few that I haven’t mentioned. Feel free to do so….

Who stands where on what……? I was out surfing and found a couple of blogs that I thought might be of interest. They are tracking the candidates so I thought I would help you out and post those blogs.

The Daily Bruin gives a brief overview of the Presidential Candidates at a glance. He lists the candidates stand on Abortion, Pulling out of Iraq, Universal Health Care System, and Same Sex Marriages.

The American Association of School Administrators gives an educational statement for the candidates.

Treasured Time for Homeschooling lists where each candidate stands on homeschooling…the ones that replied anyway.

Wise Men has an interview done with Mike Huckabee on Homeschooling.

I am still searching for information concerning the current crop of candidates. If you have a good link feel free to leave it in the comment section. Once I check it out…I will add to my list.

We need to be very concerned over this election. Look long and hard at these politicians. In the past it has basically boiled down to voting for the lesser of two evils. What are your issues? Would you vote moral issues? If so, your choice will be limited. Do you want socialism? There are all ready three candidates to choose from. Think long and hard on this one……We don’t have the liberty of voting someone out of office in a vote of no confidence.

  1. Yes, I hope all who read your blog take notice, think and pray deeply before voting. And most importantly that they vote. Our election was well, it’s over. We have a new PM and I am not so sure I like him. His relationship with China frightens me a little. His staunch position on Climate Change and his zeal for the Kyoto agreement bother me. That Peter Garrett is his advocate for climate change and making Australia greener bothers me. That he and Julia Guilard are very much in bed with the unions bothers me.

    The only thing I like about him is that yes he is charismatic and he is a staunch Christian. But they are qualities of the man, not the politician.

  2. Don’t quote me on this…but I believe it was the Kyoto treaty that had a little addendum stuck it to it removing parental rights of parents as far as corporal punishment. I am leary of all the UN treaties….We are slowly signing away America’s rights every time we sign one of those.

  4. Is any candidate willing to take a stance and tell the AMA, AHA. and the Insurance Industry: We are not going to spend any more and plan to spend less than in the past, so your provideders must make do with what’s being funded and allocate it so that it covers every resident of this country.

  5. oooh I didn’t know that, I may have to google it now and have a look see. I am really quite bothered by the direction Kevin Rudd is taking Australia, makes me want to pack my bags and move to New Zealand. (Or Canada)

    It will be interesting to see what he actually delivers and what he doesn’t. Since most of his political standing was basically to give what he thought each faction would want to garner the most votes. I just don’t see how as a Christian he can back certain policies.

    I’m very sceptical. Needless to say, I didn’t vote for Kevin Rudd!!

  6. One of the better (meaning impartial) sites with basic info about the candidates is http://www.csmonitor.com/specials/primaries08/

    Thank you for that information.
