Presidential Ponderings

I've noticed a few people are undecided as to who to support for the presidency. In case you haven't noticed my sidebar, I'm wholly behind Ron Paul. What I really hate is how the media feels like they have to narrow it down to two candidates right away, and then shove them down your throat until you forget there are others. Ron Paul won two Fox News debates. He has recently broke a record for the most money raised in one day. Yet, instead of talking about him and giving him some airtime and name recognition they just insist it's a fluke. Just mention his name to Sean Hannity and watch him go crazy!

Anyway...I just wanted to share this little quiz. Just answer 11 questions on key issues (skip any one you are unsure about) and it will tell you what candidate best matches you.

Interesting quiz. I rarely pay much attention to any of the race until the very end, and my vote is split all over the place. I took the quiz, and it said I'd vote for someone I've never even heard of. Alrighty then!

Thank you for sharing that! I just spent a good amount of time on Ron Paul's site and I think he's 'my man' and I had never even heard of him before. Thanks again.

Who the heck is Hunter? Mitt Romney was number three on my list and the highest ranking person that I have heard of. Whether it's right or wrong, there are always two candidates to choose from in the end. I just don't see the point of backing someone who doesn't have a chance.

In the end it is two candidates, but the primaries are for choosing what candidate you want. And also, when another candidate has a lot of support, that sends a message to the "big" candidates and lets them know they might have to veer in that direction. I just really hate how the media decides which names are familiar. For instance, in many of their polls they don't even include certain names.

I'm right with you Amie, I hate how the media treats the presidential races. Even now making it down to 2 candidates even now in primaries. Yesterday on NPR a woman wrote in complaining that they don't cover enough of the candidates platforms but more about who has raised more money which also annoys me. By the way I also could care less if Barak puts his hand over his heart during the anthem or not, but people won't let that go.
There are homemade signs all over my area for Ron Paul and I looked him up fully expecting some far winged (right or left) nutjob....however I really liked him. I wish he got more coverage, hopefully he will at least send a message to the final 2 candidates if nothing else.

Tancredo, Hunger, Thompson and Paul were my top four. I never heard of the first two. I agree, I think it is ridiculous that they only focus on the two parties and certain people, while not informing us of the other canditates out there.

Interesting quiz. My top two results were the two candidates I keep going back and forth about, with a 9 point spread between them -- that didn't surprise me. And the person I least want to be president was WAY down on the list -- I won't mention HER name!

My came out with large point spreads and issue spreads all over the place. Not one democrat was on my list, which is interesting and somewhat unexpected.

For many of the issues, I would vote for someone who has a different viewpoint iff (if and only if) I thought he was an honorable person who truly wants to protect the liberties and constitution of the US.

It was especially interesting that Mitt Romney was number two on my list. We'll see. I have never, in all my 20 plus years of voting, voted for a major party candidate.

My post is way off date of the conversation but it's nice to see another homeschool family for Ron Paul. You have a beautiful family. I found you through Twitter.
