Where have all the Ronald Reagans gone?
Wish things were simpler. Why, why, why - can't there just be a Ronald Reagan on the ballot - then everything would be so simple...... if only. For the second or third time in my voting history - I honestly am not sure which way I will vote. I am pretty conservative and have been looking at my options - trying to decide which is the lesser of two or three evils - figuratively speaking. But I'm not ready to commit to one candidate yet.
In the meantime, I've spent quite some time here - http://2012.presidential-candidates.org/
looking at how they differ on: abortion, Afghanistan, budget, business and labor, capital punishment, China, civil liberties, Cuba, deficit, economy, education, energy, Guantanamo, gun control, immigration, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Marijuana, North Korea, and Stem Cell research, etc.
Honestly - the more I read - the more worried I became. I wish I could pick and choose how they felt on certain issues and combine them into one "fantasy" presidential candidate.
