I would like to propose a strictly issues only debate as a new thread in the Elections 2008 forum. This thread would have rules: You cannot attack each other, you cannot attack the candidates, you must post facts about both candidates' positions and back them up with credible sources (i.e. liberals can't go to huffington post and conservatives can't go to foxnews). The issues I would like to debate are: The economy (this includes taxes, job growth, etc.) Economic philosophy overall (all the way from lezzie fair to communism) The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan Our middle east position Social issues I'm open to other topics for this debate, but with less than 3 weeks to go, I'd like an intelligent thread where there are no accusations, no keating 5 bs, no william ayres bs, just the issues. I'm not a moderator, so I can't delete posts that break the rules. I think there are probably more than a few people who are on here who are undecided and who could use this thread as a guide to vote for the candidate that they agree with the most on the issues.
