If the funding went to support the stances that they have, then great. IMO, our whole government needs to be re-structured, starting with our ludicrous legal system.
I sure can not argue any of that. Special interests are not really in the average persons best interests.
But there is so much talk about the candidates stands, especially how this one has no position or that one has that position, I thought, in the interest of fair play, and hopefully some truth, having the positions on issues handy would help in the debate.
We need a good debate in this country. But the heart and emotion has to sometimes take a back seat to the mind and the truth.
