I recently got some news which makes it possible for me to stay in MA! Very happy about that. Now, we’ve got an exciting election coming up!
You can give your political perspective on where you think I’m wrong in your replies (I’m a young guy relatively new to politics, what do I know?), but I’ll just give you an idea of where I stand: I’m a centre-left guy who believes in getting stuff done. I want there to be responsible regulations on Wall Street and I like it when the government creates jobs. As for paying down the deficit…my understanding is that important social programs are probably going on the chopping (“reform”) block, but I think we also need the rich to pay in more (bit of a higher tax rate and actually close the loopholes…how come everyone I hear on TV is for this but it never actually gets done!?) and military reductions.
So I ask the much more experienced voters here at Straight Dope: Who should I vote for? Elizabeth Warren is certainly willing to fight Wall Street, and she’s proven her meddle over the years. But Scott Brown is one of the most moderate Republicans in Congress, and maybe we need more people like that to convince the GOP to work with the Dems?
