Are you supporting the right candidate?

glassbooth-election.gif2/5/2008:

It’s my belief that quite a few people just jump on the political bandwagon, and don’t really understand what their candidate (or any other for that matter) stands for.

Here’s an interesting website that asks you to prioritize your beliefs, and answer various questions in an attempt to match you with a candidate that represents what you find most important.

Glassbooth.org

I took the poll, even though I’m not very happy with anyone running it did choose the canidate that I’m leaning towards when the time comes to vote. If you feel funny about entering your personal info at the end, close the window & it will tell you that your results are in and you can view them w/out giving your name, addy & e-mail address.

Yup, it picked the candidate I like–the one with so little chance to win he wasn’t even on the Jersey ballot. Gravel.

sigh.

If only I were in charge of the universe, things would be so much better.

Romney shares a 64% similarity with my beliefs. Homeworld–any chance that Ron Paul will run as a third party candidate, what do you think? Because there is no way in h*ll I’d ever vote for McCain!
