    2008 Election - ProCon.org

    a thread was started asking for a non-partisan site that people can compare the candidate side by side on the issues and this is what I've found...this site asks the candidates the same question and provides their response, through their own words to each question:

    Abortion: "Should abortion remain a legal option in America?"

    McCain:

    Obama:

    Criminal Justice: "Should felons, who have completed their jail time and probation and paid all their fines, be allowed to vote in elections?"

    McCain:

    Obama:

    Death Penalty: "Should the death penalty remain a legal option in America?"

    McCain:

    no problem

    I believe in providing the voters with as much information as possible on BOTH candidates!

    I think it's important to vote, no matter WHO you vote for..

    exercise your RIGHT!!

    This needs to be updated though for Obama's flip flops. If he was truly intent on reforming NAFTA, and killing our corn, soybean, and auto parts exports in the process, no way I'd even think of voting for him. Fortunately he changed his position after the primary.
