The upcoming election in November will no doubt be decided by independents, that group of voters who either do not fully understand what is at stake, choose to ignore the larger issues or relish the power they hold, like the Caesars, to turn the thumb up or down. They are wafted back and forth by the slightest breeze generated by attack ads which usually confine themselves to character assassination or stroking the sensitivities of certain factions.

Politics in this country — in fact, in most of the world — break down to socialism or conservatism. Neither is perfect, by any means, but it is essential to understand the ideology of each and where each will lead us if allowed full reign.
