The book candidates don’t want us to see.
“A must-read guide to campaign promises.” “Facts everyone should see before they vote.”
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.
