Gary Johnson 99%

90& Libertarian.

I don't see how this test could work with Romney. He changes his mind too often for the test to be accurate.

My Results

Candidates you side with...

97%
Gary Johnson

75%
Virgil Goode

68%
Mitt Romney

28%
Barack Obama

50%
Illinois Voters

53%
American Voters

74% Republican

73% Libertarian

61% Green

51% Democrat

I think this supports my decision to stay within the republican party, but vote for Gary Johnson in the GE.

I'd like to see Mitt Romney

I'd like to see Mitt Romney take this test....lol

I suspect it would look like

90% Barrack Obama

25% Mitt Romney

Hey, it says D.P. people...

...side the most with G.J.(no surprise), but when it listed individual sections, it said we sided more with Romney on immigration. Hmmm? Maybe that's where the few percentage points down some of us have. Just wondering and going to check Romney's immigration policy vs. G.J.'s to see why we are agreeing more with Romney on this.

I am 96%

with GJ andthat is who I already intended to vote for.

Prove things to yourselves.

Prove things to yourselves. That is the best advice I can give anyone looking for answers. Linked below is an interview of the isidewith creators, read the sixth paragraph. I don't know about most of you, but I find actions speak louder than words. This poll is based off what candidates say from one week to the next, not on how they have voted or their actions. Red flag.

Given most public opinion polls have at least ...

a 3% margin of error, assuming Johnson is the victor in all the close races (actually fairly likely, as events continue to go south), the electoral college result would be Johnson 275, Obama 263 and we would inaugurate a third "President Johnson" in January, 2013.

Apparently..

I'm 79% Libertarian. I'll have to think about(?) what that means(!). Perhaps the percentage of one's political alignment may be more telling than choice for candidate.

Did you check the...

..."choose another stance" instead of just yes or no and check the importance of the question to you? Also a few sections had the option of adding more questions. If you did all that, then idk why 79%. =/

Bump

Bump

Give me liberty or give me death!

Why are you not voting for the constitutionalist?

Why all this talk about wasting time with Gary Jonson rather the constitutionalists Virgil Goode?

Because....

Just because the party is called the "Constitution Party" doesn't mean they actually understand the Constitution. Look, I voted for Baldwin last time - not because he was in that party, but because he answered correctly when asked Constitutional questions and reflected Ron Paul's values.

The Constitution Party itelf?? Just a bunch of Jesus freaks that want a homogenized society.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

And the truth comes out.

Anything but those Jesus freaks. Oh wait, Ron Paul and Chuck Baldwin are Jesus freaks. Now what. There is always Obama.

How Sweet

the name of Jesus sounds, in a believer's ear!

Count me in also!

Praise and glory to Jesus my Savior forever and ever!

" In Thee O Lord do I put my trust " ~ Psalm 31:1~

No, you are wrong

I never heard Ron Paul mention his religion unless asked. He has never wanted to use the Federal Government to establish a religion and restrict private contracts (marriage). Ron Paul may be a devout Christian, but he is not a Jesus Freak - they are the ones who run the Constitution Party that want to force everyone to acknowledge our nation is ruled by Jesus (it is in their platform, I swear).

Even though Baldwin is a pastor, I heard him speak in person twice, and saw several other speeches and read his articles -- not once did he ever espouse the rhetoric coming from the Constitution Party. He always spoke about freedom and individual liberty.

Perhaps our semantics are not the same. But, I am not anti-religious people. I am anti-theocratic people.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Tempering your hate speach now?.

You must not listen to Ron Paul much. You can find devout religions convictions quite easily on the internet.

You cannot define religions institutions by civil code. Civil marriage is a penalized tax status, why anyone wants it who knows.

And regarding Baldwin, did you not know he was the constitution party presidential candidate? How much more assent of the "Jesus Freak" platform do you want. Freedom and individual liberty are "Jesus Freaks". Perhaps you have seen too many tv preachers.

hmmmm Balwin, Ron Paul, both

hmmmm Balwin, Ron Paul, both men have professed Jesus Christ as Lord and savior. Yea I think he's a Jesus freek. My question to you is, Why are two of the most wonderful men in eyes followers of Christ?
Should you think again?

No, not really

Your statement doesn't change anything I said. If you actually read what I wrote, that is.

I would say Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine were two of the most wonderful men. I would say I was a wonderful man, at least I strive to be.

I have absolutely no problem with Ron Paul and Baldwin being followers of Jesus. I support both and they are two of my heros. I have yet to hear them say they want to make Christianity the government's religion.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

No... NOW the truth comes out.

Goode wants to push his personal beliefs onto others via laws.

Paul put individual liberty before his personal beliefs.

Forcing others to obey your personal beliefs is the very opposite of libertarianism.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

I don't remember the exact percentage but I scored

high to low leading with Johnson, Romney, several others, and Obama being last.

Most of my conservative friends are centrists. One must be socially/culture tolerant in California. Gd knows our finances are in the toilet.

So....

faux-liberal neocon vs. faux-libertarian neocon. Awesome.

I don't play, I commission the league.

I post all over the internet this comment

Quote:
Gary Johnson vs. two Goldman Sachs candidates.
The choice is clear.

Yah

Im yet to be convinced that GJ simply isnt another in the pockets of the likes of Goldman Sachs . .

But you are convinced that he

But you are convinced that he is with only supporting evidence.

Is supporting evidence always good enough to convince you of things?

No

Im not convinced either way, thats My OPINION.

You really go like to put words into peoples mouths.

o·pin·ion adj.

1. If you're willing to ACT on an ASSUMPTION as though it's the truth... you're "convinced" enough to make a decision. I didn't put words in your mouth. It's clear logic that supporting evidence has you convinced enough to act the same way as if you had conclusive evidence. Actions speak louder than your words claiming that you weren't completely convinced to act a certain way, when you contradict yourself and act like it anyway.

o·pin·ion /əˈpinyən/
Noun:
A view or judgment formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.

2. So you're saying that you're willing to act off of things that may not be true. Your opinion is based on assumption, and running with assumptions as though they were the truth is not only careless, but often destructive.

Is

this a Joke?

What "decision" have I been "convinced" to make again?

So, you can read minds now too? Wow, You are amazing!

Thanks for the laugh of the morning!

You've been convinced to act

You've been convinced to act as though Johnson IS "in the pockets the like of Goldman Sachs" even though you admit that you're not sure if he is or not.

Whether it's precautionary or not, it's still sabotaging potential.
