I recently outlined a rough framework for how I approach the question of who to support for President and why I was not particularly fond of the Republican candidate, John McCain. He got decent marks for his stance on taxes, but barely passed on the economy and failed outright on civil rights. Why then am I supporting him for President?
Because his opponent is Democratic Senator Barack Obama. Today I’m talking about Obama’s positions on the issues as I see them from my secular conservative point of view. It’s time to see how Obama stacks up when it comes to what I call the “big three” issues: taxes, the economy, and civil rights.
