Issues

There are ten high-level threats to America, and there is not a single candidate out there–including the incumbent–that is serious about eradicating all of them.  There are twelve core policy-areas, all of which must be addressed coherently and simultaneously, and there is not a single candidate out there–including the incumbent–that is serious about coherent holistic governance.  To understand this in context, see the page on Governance.

None of the candidates running for the Presidency in 2012 have presented comprehensive or even credible issue solutions.  Once the field narrows down I will create a new chapter comparing those who compete in the General Election.  In the interim, below is a chapter that shows where the candidates stood in 2008, with my own recommended centrist positions highlighted.

This work would not have been possible without the stellar offerings of OnTheIssues.  See the 2012 Presidential race page as well as the Issues section.  See also the Issues Grid.

Here is a snap-shot of the candidates in 2008, showing Robert Steele as a centrist populist.  Below are the sub-pages providing much more substance, with the observation that this is the only campaign–and the only candidate for President–that actually offers the public a transparent coherent strategic analytic model, and policies that are both within a balanced budget framework, and consistent with one another.
