Where The Candidates Stand On The Issues?? Lets Research It!

Weather you are on the right or left. This is one of the most important election in our lifetime and as the political campaign is nearing its end. We need to  research  and make the right decision for ourself’s and our family , based on sound principles .

“The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) was established in 1987 to ensure that debates, as a permanent part of every general election, provide the best possible information to viewers and listeners.”(You can watch all the debates here)

I also found a new place to research and wanted to share it. it is called Political Streams

They correctly state on their site:

“As you realize, there is more than a fair share of sites and blogs out there that can give you all the information you are interested in. Trouble is, browsing through them all can be too time consuming to be enjoyable. Enter a website like Political Streams. This particular site can be found at socialstreams.livelabs.com/politics/, and it basically gives you real-time information as regards political news which surface on the net” (Resource: The Museum of Modern BetasPolitical StreamsSocialstreams.Livelabs.com

Get the Real Scoop when politicians are lying Vs. Giving you a fib.

I found this today and found interesting. Don Reisinger wrote the following:

Have you ever wanted to know when politicians are lying? A startup called RealScoop thinks it can nail it down for you in real-time with the help of voice analysis technology that it claims is used widely in law enforcement and fraud prevention.

Dubbed the Believability Meter, RealScoop’s analysis technology analyzes over 100 vocal elements of the human voice and performs over 1,000 calculations per second to find out if a politician or celebrity is telling the truth. On Tuesday, RealScoop will cover the Vice Presidential debate between Sarah Palin and Joe Biden, putting each one’s statements to its Believability test.

The site itself features a bunch of videos collected from outside sources that are played in its own player. The player features a meter that changes dynamically as it analyzes what’s being said. If it believes the person is lying, the meter turns red and moves towards the “highly questionable” area. If it believes the person is telling the truth, the meter stays green and in the “believable” section.

I found the website interesting and “believable”. Check it out and let me know what you think?
