Undecided? Change the Way you Analyze Candidates

There are still many voters who count themselves as "undecided" just 5 weeks before one of the most important presidential elections in our history.

Confusion over what are and are not the facts about the candidates is only made worse by some of the negative campaign ads that are running.

Undecided voters have a responsibility to find the facts and to analyze the differences between the candidates.  The best way to do so is to watch the debates.  While candidates have a tendency to "one-up" their opponents at these debates, a lot of the meat and potatoes of their ideological policies come out in the debates.

But be careful — a lot of the same old negative rhetoric comes out in the debates that viewers of commercials have come to expect.

I do not claim to be a political messiah or a pundit from above, but I have noticed one thing over the last 20 years — whoever the democratic candidate is, the republican candidate will claim that their opponent is the most liberal democrat in the Senate or the house, or in a Governors mansion.

Ignore that claim — it has nothing to do with facts.  Ignore labels of conservative or liberal.  Over the past several years, conservative has come to mean fiscal recklessness and a willingness to shift debt and responsibility to further generations, while liberal has come to mean pay as you go.
