    Location: Cercle de l'Union Interalliée, 33, rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré, 75008 Paris

    Voting? Interested in the upcoming U.S. elections? Join us, the American Club of Paris, the U.S. Embassy, AARO, AAWE, and France Etats Unis for a debate. Hear republicans and democrats discuss the issues facing the U.S., and their candidates. This is a perfect opportunity for voters to get informed before casting their ballot, or just hear an interesting perspective of the American election from an American viewpoint. The US Consulate is offering their support with “last minute” write-in Federal ballots at the door.
    The 2008 Presidential Election Campaign has been ardent and the candidates have emerged under many themes with a promise of CHANGE.  Although the candidates need to be confirmed by the respective parties, in the primaries the Republican John MacCain and the Democrat Barack Obama have each expressed a stance on the major issues which have evolved in recent years. And although many people have fought ferociously for their rights, few have expressed their obligations as Americans.
    There are many issues and not as many solutions. The domestic scene is dominated by unstable economic considerations. Financing programs involves raising revenues with the conjuncture not as positive as in previous election campaigns. The availability of primary commodities threatens the American life patterns and all solutions imply a redefinition. For Americans living in France the foreign policies and relationships are key issues which touch our daily lives. The US $ position is paramount for many of us.

    Everyone is welcome to join.
