Here's a novel idea. Instead of limiting ourselves to bashing politicians we don't like (and groveling over the ones we worship)... why don't we put forth our opinions on individual ISSUES?
I know. It's a foreign thought to most people today. But trust me... this is how it was way back when... and that's how it should have stayed.
I'll give it a go.
Now we all know (or should know) that looking for an unbiased comparative table on political Party platforms is pretty much like looking for a needle in a haystack. Some of the tables out there are downright comical in their bias.
But if you're into doing a little homework, you should be able to find fair comparisons.
So without going into too much explanation (for now)... I'll just throw some issues out there, along with my leaning on each.
Immigration - R
Healthcare - D
Taxation - D
2nd Amendment - D
Environment - D
Defense - R
Education - R
Religious Freedom - R
LGBTQ+ - R
Abortion - R
Energy - D
Now... I may very well have missed a handful of issues. In fact, I'm certain of it. But those are the ones off the top of my head.
Also... my leaning is stronger in some of the issues than others. In some issues, I'm pretty much close to the center, and... depending on the politicians in charge at the time... I could easily switch sides.
Anyway, for whatever it's worth... this is my crude attempt at deflecting from the tired Trump and Biden threads, and talk about what's REALLY IMPORTANT... the issues.
Number one... it's the issues that matter. Number two... as much as people defend them, neither Trump nor Biden are shining examples of what Presidents should be.
With that, I'll ignore any comments on either Trump or Biden on this thread as much as possible.
