"I check the candidates' stances on policy issues versus their own public statements, comments, and actions and decide from there."

Good. Unfortunately a lot of people tend to believe everything they see on facebook and are not into thoroughly researching as your good self (or me).

Politicians want to get the wavering voters and facebook provides the tools to do this in an underhanded, flagrant lying manner by their own admission.

Its not about the democratic process, its about money and money wins, always.

To quote Trump, "sad, very sad"
