PolitoMuse is a project of two neophyte political junkies reluctantly pressed into action to educate, illuminate and perhaps amuse an electorate pressed into service by a self-inflicted election process that demands an unreasonable effort from a listless and detached citizenry. Our project has its roots in an election analysis document created years ago and circulated to friends and family. As the years progressed the analysis document became a perennial event, the list of friends grew, and the demand for the analysis increased.
Soon we started circulating updates and changes to the analysis as friends provided useful information and arguments pro and con. The purpose of the original analysis document and of the PolitoMuse project is to get people engaged in the election process. We can think of no better way of doing that than by allowing folks to post their comments directly on the site in the hopes that the discussion itself will spur interest in others. We work hard to provide a rational analysis of the propositions and candidates that we review. Our hope is that you agree with our conclusions – because, well, we think we’re right – but whether you agree or disagree with us, dissent or join, we hope that you find the analysis and information on PolitoMuse to be rational, reasonable, and useful, no matter what your political leaning or inclination.
Above all we hope that you will eschew the modern societal trend against political involvement, will think about the important issues that we must decide upon in this election, and will share that thinking with others both here and in your face-to-face interactions with friends.
