Side Effects: What Candidates Don’t Tell You by Tomas Payne–guest author

Book Genre: Nonfiction (political)
Publisher: Finlee Augare Books
Release Date: July 1, 2016Buy Link(s):
Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Side-Effects-What-Candidates-Dont-ebook/dp/B01G0KUW0GBook Description:
The book candidates don’t want us to see.
“A must-read guide to campaign promises.” “Facts everyone should see before they vote.”
Candidates rally for our support and appeal to our anger and frustrations, often offering radical solutions, but what aren’t they telling us? Sure they pitch the good times they’ll bring. What about the side-effects and costs of their medicine.
Side-Effects: What Candidates Don’t Tell You takes you behind the scenes on issues of the day and campaign promises. It focuses on consequences, issues, and options. It also challenges myths such as who are the wealthy, and what is the history of depressed wages. The emphasis is on shedding light, exposing myths, examining consequences, and exploring options, not on personalities. Sorry, no dirt on the people, just on their promises.
Side-Effects will answer questions such as:

  •   Will raising income and estate taxes hurt the billionaires and redistribute wealth?
  •   Why healthcare is broken and what options we have.
  •   Why wages are depressed and what we can do about it.
  •   What are the implications of immigration plans?

Side-Effects cuts through the BS to look at campaign promises on wealth redistribution, taxes, Social Security, healthcare, depressed wages, and many other topics and aims to bring facts to these issues.

Guest Post Request For Avenue Books – Does Hillary’s and Trump’s faith matter?

While a candidate’s professed faith may shine some light on their character, a better indication of how they will guide the reins of government are his or her actions over respective careers. It’s true that religion has always been an important part of the American character. However, our Founding Fathers were very much afraid of the active intervention of faith in governance that they saw in Europe leading to centuries of wars and strife. They believed that faith can take many forms, but that people of faith can work to build bridges or to create strife. That’s why they fought so hard to separate church and state and keep faith as a private matter. They did not want America to follow the example of religious wars in Europe.

 

Do candidates’ religious beliefs matter? It’s interesting that every four years, candidates trot out their religious devotion and then move on to act out their lives as they see fit. Those who profess and even act upon the most devout religious beliefs can still promote policies that will disadvantage voters who can be whipped up to support them strictly on religious grounds. That’s a dangerous way to vote. It leaves voters open to being manipulated into voting against their own best interests. Voting for a candidate who backs your beliefs on abortion yet promotes policies that will make your job disappear isn’t really supporting your best interests.

 

I would argue that a candidate’s character matters more than their religious beliefs or their faith when it comes to guiding this country. Look at what they do, not just what they say.
