Helpful Hint: Before deciding to what extent you agree or disagree with the positions stated on the issues listed below, you should first rank them in the order of their importance to you.
In other words, there are two elements used in making a decision about a candidate. The first is the candidate’s positions on the issue the second is how important you think that issue is to you. For example, let's say you agree with my position on five issues and disagree with me on seven others. But let us say that the issues where you agree with me are ranked in your top five and those where you disagree have lower ranks. Even though you disagree with more of my positions than you agree, we both agree on the issues that are most important to you. This is the best way to help you decide how you will vote on Election Day, November 6, 2012.
