Tired of simply voting for the lesser of two evils?

So you don’t like Romney… and you don’t like Obama. Do you just toss a dice to pick your candidate? Not vote? Vote the “lesser of two evils”? Or do you vote your conscience for whoever matches you best?

I’m going to argue here that the reason we are where we are is because we have repeatedly failed to vote our consciences. Instead, we vote for someone that we, many times, are only lukewarm about. So we compromise, sometimes on very big and important issues. With millions of dollars being raised and spent on campaigning it seems only logical to inquire if elections are even fair anymore… or if they are bought.

I say it’s time to stop playing political games and vote for who best matches you instead of voting for someone who only kinda-sorta matches your beliefs. To help you find out what candidate best matches you please take this test and see who you align with the most. If you don’t know the answer to something, then skip that question.

Quotes:

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth... For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it." - Patrick Henry

"Politicians and diapers both need to be changed, and for the same reason." - Anonymous

"Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it." - William Penn

"Naturally the common people don't want war; neither in Russia, nor in England, nor in America, nor in Germany. That is understood. But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country" - Hermann Goering

"I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do this I keep on doing." - Romans 7:18-19

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
