Fun political quiz (US)

http://speakout.com/votematch/

This will tell you where you fit on the political spectrum and which candidate for President you should support.

It told me I should vote Socialist (I would consider it, but I don't want to throw my vote away so I'm voting Obama).

Personal Score 91%
Economic Score 22%


Where You Fit In

Where your Personal score meets your Economic score on the grid below is your political philosophy. Based on the above score, you are a Hard-Core Liberal .

Hard-core Liberal
Personal Score 92%
Economic Score 16%

It says I should've supported Hillary, but I'm happy supporting the 4th suggestion, Obama.

Tip: Be sure to click the link of each question to see how they're defining each choice before choosing, you might be surprised like I was!

Voting a third party candidate is not throwing your vote away. The single biggest problem with American politics is not vote-rigging, not the electoral college...it's the fact that MOST people vote for the main party candidate that they DISLIKE THE LEAST, rather than vote with the candidate that best represents their views. This allows the corporate whore duopoly to continue to dominate American politics.

DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!

Liberal with libertarian leanings here. But that test has some weird goings-on...the missus clearly had less libertarian answers than me on the few on which our opinions differed, yet it scored her more libertarian. Hmm.

It's not hype it's reality. With the system as it stands now, obviously you throw your vote away if you vote third party. However you might have philosophical reasons for doing so and not consider it thrown away. Maybe for some long term goal in changing the system or at least changing the center of balance of the 2 main parties.

No one ever agrees with all of a candidate's views. And when in other governments coalitions need to be formed between parties that have very little in common, you have the compromising that you might dislike, only it comes in a different form at a different time. No system is perfect, and all have corruption.
