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?

Comments

What factors do you consider when deciding to back a candidate?
Usually I consider both the candidate's personal platform and also the official platform of their party. In the past I have placed importance on reproductive rights, health care, and education. I also tend to consider how articulate the candidate is in expressing their positions and opinions.

What issues are important to you in the upcoming election?
As always, I am interested in reproductive rights, health care and education. I have also developed a greater interest in foreign and military policy. Issues such as environmental policy and stem cell research are also on my list.

I feel like there's more, but I can't think of it at the moment.
