    Wouldn't it be GREAT if each candidate was required to put up a website and bullet-point each of their platforms in direct layman's terms? Maybe...just maybe...if they had to put their promises and terms in writing in a public forum they would be more apt to stick with them! icon_rolleyes.gif

    And how about we hold them accountable and if they don't live up to their promises they would be imprisoned!

    ..."and I say to myself, 'What a wonderful world'. Yes, I say to myself, ' What a wonderful world'."

    by the way, both candidates have what you're looking for. The info may be a bit long, but it has to be since the plans aren't simple. Barack's site is a bit easier to read and doesn't have all the fluff that McCain's does, imo.
