I've gone and registered the name http://worldofelections.com/ and put it on wordpress. I was thinking about making it into a site for elections (and discussions thereof) globally. It will by necessity be a project in progress, hopefully turning the comments into an informative community of English speakers from all around the world, a worldwide RRH so to speak.
Personally, I would like to welcome serious opinion pieces, so it would have more of a policy side to it than RRH, but I would also like to keep it civil. No redstate or dailykos forums.
So my questions are: Would anyone like to cooperate with me on this page? Do you have any ideas for layout and organization? Should we stick to national elections or include local/regional? What do you think about the policy side of it?
Should it be specifically right of center like RRH or should we include some of the rather nice lefties here too? I think maybe it's easier to write in a more neutral, non-provocative language when one is writing about foreign stuff, what do you think? Decisions, decisions...
Elections have consequences -- from the race for President to the race for one seat on a city council. The political economist Max Weber wrote that the state possesses a monopoly on the legitimate use of force. But in the United States, the state is divided into myriad federal, state, and local entities. And the elections to fill those entities are the products of the fascinating interactions between campaigns, party affiliations, voter turnout, and the media spotlight. Red Racing Horses analyzes those elections -- from a Republican-leaning perspective -- to keep a close eye on the process of electing officials, and to offer our perspective on the election-related issues of the day. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you'll enjoy the blog.
