Make the Connection: Political courage and honesty

Election Day is almost here! A wise elephant* once said "Every voice counts". So today I'd like to encourage you to empower yourself with the facts that will help you to make the best decisions for our country.

Ready to learn the facts about the candidates?
Check out the websites below to learn their views, biography, speeches and voting records.

At you can find non partisan facts (not accusations) in an easy to search, easy to understand language. Their website states: “Picture this: thousands of citizens (conservative and liberal alike) working together, spending endless hours researching the backgrounds and records of thousands of political candidates and elected officials to discover their voting records, campaign contributions, public statements, biographical data (including their work history) and evaluations of them generated by over 100 competing special interest groups. Every election these volunteers test each candidate's willingness to provide citizens with their positions on the issues they will most likely face if elected through the Political Courage Test. “

For a Catholic perspective check out to learn about the candidates, compare their views and find ways you can get involved in defending human life.

Peace of Christ to you!
