Vote Smart – Political Courage Test

http://votesmart.org/

[candidate/person]…has refused to provide voters with positions on key issues covered by the 2016 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests. Historically, candidates have failed to complete our test due to the advice they receive from their parties and advisors and out of fear of negative attack ads. [candidate/person]… is still welcome to submit the test at any time.

Note: An interesting site to explore the voting record of individuals. The voting records are public domain. The site also provide sources/links to validate their data, so concerns about the site’s bias are reduced. All the persons listed above, failed to clearly state their positions. Seems simple enough to me, these are my positions, I make a public declaration and agreement/contract to uphold these positions. An honest social contract with informed voters? Nope, not in the US in 2016!
