10 Questions Before Voting

Theology professor Roger Olson risks offending both Republicans and Democrats with his Ten Questions to Consider Before Voting. (And I guess I risk doing the same by posting them here!)

5 Questions to consider before voting Republican:

  1. What will happen to the poor in a Republican administration?
  2. Will a Republican administration pursue world peace?
  3. How will a Republican administration promote mercy, compassion and justice for all?
  4. Is a Republican administration likely to be unduly influenced by large corporations?
  5. Can a Republican administration show respect for every human person’s dignity and rights?

5 Questions to consider before voting Democratic:

  1. What will happen to the not-yet-born in a Democratic administration?
  2. Will a Democratic administration keep America and others safe from terrorism?
  3. How will a Democratic administration promote security and safety for Americans and others?
  4. Is a Democratic administration likely to be unduly influenced by liberal special interest groups?
  5. Can a Democratic administration show respect for traditional family values?

What do you think? Does Olson do a good job with his questions of identifying some of the main strengths and weaknesses of each party?
