Two-Party Politics

10 July 2004

Shouldn’t we clearly understand what the issues are in any two-party race? Shouldn’t we have some clear position statement about every issue from each candidate? Finally, shouldn’t the planned course of action for each issue during the first month, year and two years be spelled out?

It makes no sense for one party to run a campaign by simply opposing each position of the competitor. ”I don’t agree,” is just not good enough. A candidate should spell out what he stands for, why and what he plans to do. Otherwise, he doesn’t get my attention – much less the possibility of my vote.
