2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz

wow! I'm the only one I've seen with mixed color rankings ;-) (and apparently no R or D candidate agrees with me more than 65%, shocking) I didn't expect to have so many blues in the top! Although ironically I'd probably vote for the libertarian (running as republican?) -- at the bottom of this list. I'd prefer Wayne Allyn Root or Christine Smith, but they don't have as much support at the moment.

speaking of voting...

vote for me at LJ idol!

(voting ends Monday Jan 14th at 1pm EST)

2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz

I'm surprised more women aren't matching hilary clinton.

if that guy is the one you match beliefs with the LEAST, why would you vote for him? I'm curious why you'd still vote republican at all - you could wake up one day without the right to your own sexuality.
belenen ══╣iconoclast╠══
because he's supposedly (based on some very shallow research) a libertarian running on the republican ticket, and I doubt that this quiz is very accurate -- and I would be sure to do more research first of course. Libertarians, btw, are fiscally conservative and socially liberal, so if Ron Paul is in fact a libertarian he would be in favor of gay rights.
kevloid2008 ══╣╠══
yes, the man IS more important than the party, but I'd agree with if you more if he was running for the libertarian party.

Here's an interview: http://www.townhall.com/columnists/JohnStossel/2008/01/09/live_and_let_live,_says_one_candidate

Since we've never had a third-party president, it may simply be the smart thing to do. In theory, I'd prefer if he was running with the party that actually matches his ideals, but in practice? if the republicans will endorse him despite him not actually following all their party lines, then who cares? There is always the question of what he will actually do once in office, but you have that question even if the person's ideals match hir party's ideals.
kevloid2008 ══╣╠══
the article isn't anything I don't know.

he won't win though. a vote for him is a vote for whoever wins the nomination, and THAT person's backers will likely be the hardcore religious right and military contractors.

Ron Paul was the Libertarian nominee for President in 1988. I'd say that's prety Libertarian.

Of course he's got the newsletter controversy hanging over him now, and it's not the first time the newsletter and the racist and homophobic remarks in it have come up either. Which is why I can't figure out why he would be surprised. . . but I digress.

I like Ron Paul as well; but he's not pro-choice, which is the only thing that makes me hesitate...
belenen ══╣iconoclast╠══
well, according to this interview, he thinks it should be a state decision, not a federal one. (which I agree with)
brightlotusmoon ══╣╠══
Yeah, I did just see that -- and I absolutely agree. In fact, that interview just made me a full Ron Paul supporter. My husband, too. But Adam also likes him because they share a last name. ;)

That's about as libertarian as it gets.
belenen ══╣veneration╠══
yeah, I'd say so! Thanks so much for that link! ;-)
fionavere ══╣╠══
No problem, a friend of mine posted it the other day. :)
brightlotusmoon ══╣╠══
Okay, that link made me like him again. Yay Ron!

Interesting quiz. i just posted it to as many people as I could.

(and I have to agree with you, Ron Paul probably should have been a little higher on my list, too.)
deleon ══╣╠══
Ron Paul is the person I'm voting for and he is a Liberatarian running under the Republican ticket. That's the only way he even had a chance of winning in a "two-party" system.

My Presidential Matching was at least as mixed up as yours - maybe more so! :)
