For those that don't know, I'm the developer behind TheSmartVoter. This blog is mainly an extension of my work with the site. You probably won't see many of my own thoughts on here so I'm sure you're wondering what my political beliefs are. I'm conservative in some areas and liberal others but I'm usually in the middle on most issues. I try to weigh out all the arguments of an issue and then decide for myself. This site started as a way to make that easier and I hope it helps you do the same.
