Community Discussion

I'm really excited to see that we already have some members, and hopefully we'll continue to grow! Feel free to tell your friends about this community. Larger membership will mean greater diversity in perspective, which can only help to enrich the community.

astraevirgo and I have a bunch of ideas in the works for posts to make, including a listing of "wanted" posts that members can volunteer to put together. Also, if you have ideas or suggestions please let us know!

This seems like a great time to have our first community discussion. It will give us a chance to find out where to direct our energies and hopefully generate some new ideas.

What factors do you consider when deciding to back a candidate? *AND* What issues are important to you in the upcoming election?

What factors do you consider when deciding to back a candidate?
I like to like a candidate. I want them to be a good speaker, and to be good with interacting with people. Shallow things, but if I'm going to listen to them speak for the next four years, especially on the State of the Union, I want to enjoy it. It goes without saying that I weigh the issues, but I'm never sure what's most important to me, so that's part of why this community will be good.

What issues are important to you in the upcoming election?
The War, and separate from the war, Military Policy. Social policy, of all kinds (Welfare, Social Security, Birth Control). Feminist issues (Birth control/abortion, family policies.) I want to know about everything...
