As elections draw near, how can we tell where candidates stand on the issues? Their own words can be so deceptive. One way is to look up what individuals or groups are endorsing them or contributing to them. This is public information. You know a person by his or her friends. Also, if the candidate has already held public office, look up his or her voting record. Actions speak louder than words.
And because that’s true, we should not simply ask them what they believe, but rather what are they willing to do once in office. Regarding abortion, it’s easy to say one is pro-life. But what steps will one commit to in order to advance the protection of the unborn? That’s the kind of question we should ask the candidates, and make their answer known.
