Even checking out all the parties and the members running right now, only gives you a drop in the bucket of information.
Unfortunately this is where history comes into play. You need to research the history of each part to a certain degree, the issues they stand for, the
policies, and what campaign promises they kept in previous years. It is a misconception that you are voting for just one individual, one
representative. They may claim that although they represent a certain party, that they wish to do things far different from there predecessors. Some
do make change, others don't. That would be where you need to delve into the personal history of a candidate.
Are they all they claim to be, and how have they lived their life up till now?
A lot of homework I know.
In one respect, the American Election is SUPERIOR to ours, as the population has more time to research and consider their decision. we are not really
offered that luxury.
Personally, I'm tired of seeing either Red or Blue, and I plan to Vote Green, just to be pain in the ass.
