Will Donald Trump’s Southern Border Wall actually make our country safer? How much will Bernie Sanders’s and Elizabeth Warren’s Medicare for All plan really cost American taxpayers? Can Cory Booker’s and Kamala Harris’s ideas for debt-free college revive the American dream?
You’ll find the answers in this book. With the 2020 US presidential election looming, the emerging contest doesn’t seem so much a battle of ideas as it does a war of two tribes bent on the other’s destruction. The Far Left and Far Right increasingly dominate and drive America’s political debate, leaving a majority of Americans feeling left out and left behind. The Ultimate Guide to the 2020 Election gives a voice to this majority and provides an unbiased education on the true nature of the problems America faces on several key issues, including:
• Health Care
• Energy & Climate Change
• Infrastructure
• Big Tech & Privacy
• The American Dream
• Immigration
• The National Debt
• Gun Safety
Beyond these policy issues, No Labels senior advisors Ryan Clancy and Margaret White present ideas for rescuing American democracy itself. Complete with sample questions for the 2020 presidential candidates and an inclusive Unity Agenda that addresses concerns on both sides of the aisle, this nonpartisan political handbook should be required reading for all US voters.

The book identifies clear domestic policy issues (not much on trade and foreign issues)), setting forth specific candidate proposals and stated positions from the left and the right. The authors then propose some viable solutions. Whether the reader agrees fully with the solutions, there is open discussion and responsible and workable compromises. The guide also offers questions directed specifically to President Trump, questions directed specifically to the Democratic presidential candidates and then questions for all of the candidates.

The presentation is well documented and provides open views for citizens and journalists who may have a sincere interest in seeking to focus on clear candidate positions. Although The Ultimate Guide is not a one-stop resource and doesn’t always find a place of common ground, it is at least an effort to open discussions on some of the issues.

I had never heard of the No Labels group but I appreciate this approach. I did not find any clear, gross bias, either toward the left or right. Too often the public is presented with clearly biased positions from authors or news outlets who are not willing to allow open dialogue. This book is a breath of fresh air. I highly recommend this as an excellent resource while watching debates and preparing to vote in 2020.
