The issues


I’ve been putting off writing about (well, anything) politics for a while, but now I’ll throw my hat in the ring and say that I support Barack Obama and Joe Biden for president. Basically, I think it comes down to the fact that Barack is more connected with reality than John McCain. When it comes to the factual basis of policy proposals, Barack seems to be a vast improvement over McCain. (Check facts out a factcheck.org or a variety of news sources.) When it comes to fiscal responsibility of proposals, Obama wins again, though his policies need a bit of tweaking to avoid deficit spending. When it comes to issues, I think Obama has been more consistently on his message than McCain. And when it comes to reform, which is sorely needed in Washington, I think Barack and Biden are more qualified to effect reform than McCain and Palin.

In these last 60 days before the election, and after the convention rhetoric buzz is dying down, I think it is time to take a step back, research the proposals, and evaluate who has the best plan. I did that, and decided on Barack Obama.
