I am new to politics. I have been listing to Thom since October. Before that I wasn't too into politics. I was 18 during the Gore-Bush election and lost all interest when the election was stolen. Then Obama came along and I got fired up again, only to lose interest when the movement came to a crashing halt.
Now that I have been listening to Thom, I am getting fired up again. Bernie Sanders joining the race put me over the top. Today for the first time ever I called congress. Felt really good to take action and participate.
Anyway, I am at the point now where I want to learn more about what going on. I especially want to educate myself about the various agendas of the republican candidates. So where do I start? What is a good trustworthy source I can mine to figure out what actually going on and what all of the flowery speech means. The way politicians jump from metaphor, to the story of a little girl from Any-town USA, to a very short and cryptic sentence about immigration, or tax reform can be very hard to follow for the new to politics and the un-informed.
I appreciate any help and advise in my quest to inform myself and then others around me of what is really going on and what it is politicians are actually saying.
