An interesting read. However, this author seems to have his mind made up. This is not a balanced view, but a justification for voting in a particular way and why to do otherwise would be unwise. If you want to further justify a more conservative voting pattern this read will confirm and support that stance. It is a great read from that point of view. If you are undecided you will not find this a good source for presenting, in a factual way, the advantages and disadvantages of both sides of political divide. You will need to go to other sources for that.
