The November 6th, 2012 General Election is just around the corner, along with all the tricky candidate, judicial and pesky ballot measure choices for voters.
Ballot measures, propositions, and constitutional amendments can be very tricky and often are meant to purposefully fool voters into voting for them or against them, when the voter actually intends to do the opposite. Many positions are non-partisan (such as Supreme Court Justices) so that voters cannot even get a general idea of the candidate's ideology by party affiliation.
On top of that, there has been record amounts of spending by candidates, Super PACs and other groups for and against many ballot measures and candidates. These advertisements are so sensationalist, dramatic and completely uninformative that they can leave a voter completely baffled as to the truth on any of these matters.
The Lighthouse is known for its relentless pursuit of the truth, wherever the facts may take. The Lighthouse digs deeper and looks further than the endless stream of mainstream news outlets and blogs which endlessly regurgitate the same information. They often add little in terms of value or analysis, and almost never even verify the veracity of the original information they are repeating.
The Lighthouse Keeper has looked into the states' ballots, measures and candidates in order to make his informed official endorsements.
The Voter Guide is an essential took for any responsible voter. The Lighthouse does not pretend to be unbiased, and makes her values very clear. Constitutionalism, justice, fiscal conservatism, freedom and free markets, individual liberty and responsibility, patriotism and realism and strength in foreign relations are among the values espoused by the Lighthouse. Voters interested in these values and issues, are well served to follow the endorsement, while voters in disagreement will find the endorsements equally useful (they can simply elect to vote contrary to them).
More local ballots will be added in the coming days leading up to the election, and making the guide a more complete tool. The Lighthouse also invites discussion and comments, equally as welcome if opposed or in favor.
