Question Of The Week, 7/15/07

Good morning. I'm running a little late today. Most of the time I have the question posted before I go to bed on Saturday night/Sunday morning. Last night I got caught up in a movie my wife was watching then I got tired. I think we can all agree, the presidential campaign season is now going strong. So I have two questions about candidate shopping. This weeks Question Of The Week is. What are some of the things you look for in a presidential candidate? Do most United States citizens put as much time and effort into selecting a presidential candidate as they do when they are looking for a new (used in my case) car or truck?

I'll post my answer in the Comment Section Monday night.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

An excellent Question of the Week, David!

What are some of the things you look for in a presidential candidate?

The candidate's stand on the issues which I deem as important at the time. Today, my primary concern is national security and how a given candidate will continue to combat Islamofascism. My second concern is that of immigration. Finally, I want to know how a candidate stands on fiscal matters, including entitlement programs and taxes.

I scrutinize the candidate's voting record and prior experience in governing.

Do most United States citizens put as much time and effort into selecting a presidential candidate as they do when they are looking for a new (used in my case) car or truck?

I don't think so.

Looking at the voting record is important. I find many people have no idea how any of the major candidates have actually voted on issues. Unfortunately, when I looked at their voting records, it kind of made me not want to support any of them..

I like people who are willing to take a stand and stick to it, instead of waffling and taking back previous remarks they made.

First I want to thank you for stopping by to answer this weeks question, "What are some of the things you look for in a presidential candidate? Do most United States citizens put as much time and effort into selecting a presidential candidate as they do when they are looking for a new (used in my case) car or truck?" All very good answers so far. Pay little or no attention to what they say they will do if elected, look at their past,where have they stood on important issues and how have they voted on bills that will effect all of us for the rest of our lives. I look for a candidate that gives some thought to what the United States Constitution says before voting on a bill.

I know people that can give you more info on most of the motor vehicles on the road today than you'll ever need right off the top of their head. Most of them haven't got a clue as to how many candidates are in the running right now. They are sure there are only Democrats and Republicans running. These people will be voting.

I'd like to find a candidate that would be willing to have a copy of their oath of office (if elected) framed and hung on their bed room wall so it would be one of the first things they see every morning.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

btw, david, someone probably told you this already, but there's a long profile of Ron Paul in the New York Times magazine today:

There is just an electric feel in the air, and it really promises to only get progressively worse as the date approaches
