There was a time in 2010 to 2011 when this blog had several times as many readers as it does now. That would have been the time to post a post of this type. But I would like to start looking at American politics in the largest sense possible as relates to readers of this blog. Those who are not American are more than welcome to complete the poll questions as well. It is not easy to say how this information will help me in running this blog but it will help me and it can also help other people clarify their thoughts. How about stopping and answering three poll questions in the middle of this post , now would be the time.
This blog has been pretty harsh on the Obama administration compare to many other media outlets. It is also critical of foreign regimes and previous administrations but it was founded during the Obama years. Sometimes the posts and pages also praise decisions and qualities of President Obama. How about answering five more poll questions.
Many Americans express disapproval of the way our government does business. I am very displeased with the state of the country and that is why I have written model constitutions which are in pages on this site. Why don’t we get to know each other a little bit and you can tell me some things about your self and your government. Take some time to answer these next four questions.
How do you feel about America’s role int world? You might have to read more of this blog than you have so far to really understand how I am connected to the world. It is my tendency to always think both of and American perspective and a world perspective on most issues. Why not let me know something about yourself in the next five questions?
This is getting to be a long poll, isn’t it? But at least you can do it on your own time. Certainly, it would help me to know what readers think and do. But the questions may also inspire you to search out various parts of the blog. How about answering four more questions about this aspect of things:
I suppose that the united States a s a whole is a very complex place full of lots of different people with different needs, ideas and values. This poll does not ask a lot of questions about specific regions, races and religions. I t does not talk about fiscal policy in detail nor discuss labor force participation. What is true is that America mus face many vital issues. By participating in this poll you are able to help form the conversation a bit more than would be the case if you did not take the time to do this.
I have been around the country very extensively. In fact there are very few states that I have not visited. But I have also spent long periods of time in a few states. That is true despite the fact that my Louisiana roots are deep and extensive. I hope in the comments some of you find ways to share the insights of your regions here as well.
There is never enough time to cover all the pressing issues addressing a country and a world. But a poll like this will help me understand my readership a bit better coming up to the next sets of elections.
