A week or so ago, I received a letter from Project Vote Smart, asking me to complete their political courage test and submit biographical information to them. I have taken the test, and hopefully all of that will be uploaded soon. When it is, you can find all of my information at their website here: http://votesmart.org/candidate/biography/153598/josh-derke#.VDHtvVeKVEM.
I have to be honest, I’m a really big fan of the work they’re doing there. They asked tough, pointed questions and gave me some space to talk about why I think the way I do. I think that this is conducive to fostering discussions with politicians, and it help to bring their views into the light. Since I’ve already pledged openness and honesty on all issues and topics, this was no sweat.
As you wait for the results to post, you can peruse my responses, which I’ll post below.
