Choosing the Best President in 2020   NEW!

Welcome to all political junkies, concerned citizens and knowledgeable voters.


The Florida Election Primary is Tuesday, March 17 so campaigning will be active but to be thoroughly prepared to vote for the best candidate let us work together to review and understand their positions.

Key Points: The purpose of the class is for each member to choose, or be assigned, a candidate and determine that candidate's positions based on the candidate’s website and speeches and to explain them to the other class members. We will concentrate on the facts articulated by our candidate and not find the faults of the other candidates. Each week, according to the following schedule, we will present our candidates’ position and if time permits at the end of each class, we will vote for the best position – by secret ballot.

Jan 14- Health Care
