Here are ten political questions that I was curious as to how you would respond: 1. What is the difference between a "liberal" and a "progressive"? 2. Can a "conservative" also be "progressive"? 3. How do you view the "Necessary and Proper Clause"/Elastic Clause and how do you interpret it? Congress has the power, “To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper" 4. How do you view the "General Welfare Clause" and how do you interpret it? Congress has the power to "lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts, and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common defense and general Welfare of the United States." 5. Is military dominance, including the on-going interventions, Cold Wars, and nation building required for American greatness or any nation's greatness? 6. Name a few things that Democrats do right, and a few things that Republicans do right (no snarky comments) 7. What can both parties learn from the Libertarian Party? 8. What can both parties learn from the Green Party? 9. In general, would a trend towards billionaire presidents be preferable to party politicians? 10. What is ONE single issue that needs to be resolved for America to be greater than it currently is?
Sorry, it's me again A few miscellaneous questions from the electoral vote info screen... What do the "4/5", "1/10", etc. numbers mean above the tracking poll and other icons? Is there really any disadvantage to simply targeting every state? What do the numbers in the top two rows mean? I'm really lost with the second screen "platform." I really don't understand the bars and graphs in the first two columns. What do we use this for and what are the key points when figuring out the best issues for us and against our opponents? Incidentally, a suggestion - can we get the ability to pop out tracking poll graphics into a new window, to get a larger more detailed view?
