Election 2010 The Debate | An Independent Voters View
The 2010 Mid-term elections are only 36 days away. With the release of the Republican Parties “Pledge to America” the political debate has begun in earnest. I think it might be instructive to highlight some of the political opinions put out here at Hub Pages, so I will be publishing every couple of days links to what I see as hubs from all sides that bring the debate up front and I’ll of course give my thoughts on the issue at hand along with links to the Hubbers mentioned.
My plan is to highlight two fellow hubbers primarily and occasionally add one or two others that seem to make some valid points even if I think some of their other views may be extreme even for the rightest of right or leftist of left. My primary hubbers are BreakfastPop, LRCBlogger, and to kick things off I’ve added MikeNV to the mix for his views on the economy, the Federal Reserve, and others. Let me be clear I do not necessarily subscribe or agree with the views of any one of them completely but I do take the time to read and learn while I develop my own thoughts on things.
I think that we have to look hard at our candidates locally, regionally, and nationally with an eye of who is likely to lead from value focused principals that may not match up identically with mine but will in the end make decisions on legislation that are consistent with the guiding principles in the Constitution and what is right for our country.
I further look to see how ‘upfront’ with the voters has an incumbent been about legislation passed and how it was passed. I am particularly tired of the underhanded ways legislation moves forward and particularly so when it is not read before a vote is cast.
So with the baseline having been drawn here are some of their past hubs that I think may help you get to know them, also some of mine that may give you a peek through my own twisted lens. Hope we learn some things together this next month or so and when we cast our votes we do so for the individual we think will do the best job for our country.
