Take the Quiz: Are you Rand Paul, Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio?

Three Republican presidential hopefuls have served together in the Senate for the last two years: Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.

That means voters will have an unusually direct way of examining how they compare.

The Washington Examiner reviewed hundreds of votes from 2013 and 2014 to find cases where the three senators split on substantive issues.

Below are 10 votes where the three differed. To find out which one you would have voted most like, take this short quiz.

How does anyone ever justify

How does anyone ever justify confirming a hard core central planner to the office of sec of state?

This is an idiot poll for one reason and one reason alone!...

This poll is one of many dis-info/propaganda campaigns ongoing, designed to distract the numbed down masses into accepting ineligible Neocons as lawful candidates for the POTUS... this poll makes the assumption that all three are eligible for the office!

The only person on the list who is constitutionally eligible is Rand Paul!

The poll helps dumb down the couch potato voters further... as if they could actually descend into serfdom further than they have already sunk!

It is the shell game of desensitization, which removes the whole issue of constitutional qualifications from the table of consideration!

There is no more understanding by these potato voters, of anything the constitution regulates!

The best defense against this tactic is constant disputing of the mention of these foreign senators as possible POTUS candidates. Just answer all the airwaves, the tweets, the emails, the call-in shows, the billboards, the phone calls, etc., with:

Marco who? Oh, he's ineligible.

Ted who? Oh, he's ineligible!

Marco who? Oh, he's ineligible.

Ted who? Oh, he's ineligible!

Marco who? Oh, he's ineligible.

Ted who? Oh, he's ineligible!

Marco who? Oh, he's ineligible.

Ted who? Oh, he's ineligible!

Marco who? Oh, he's ineligible.

Ted who? Oh, he's ineligible!

....you get the idea.

Poll is designed against Rand

The Cabinet confirmations are the differences in the poll between Rand and Cruz. Any "conservative" is going to pick against those nominations and therefore the poll will say "You're Ted Cruz! YAAAY" The pollsters will now leave that poll thinking how could Rand vote for those nominees? Guess I'm a Cruz supporter now.

What the polls don't show is that Rand traded his vote for key public information on a Cabinet member who's getting confirmed anyways. Rand got a response from the President on the drone issue, and as promised, voted to confirm after a response was given. This information was not included in the poll. Cruz just voted no. Rand voted yes on somebody who was getting confirmed whether he liked it or not, but drew public attention to a very great matter. Rands yes vote goes a lot further than Cruz' no vote.

Hmmm....Y U No Put A Ron Paul

Hmmm....Y U No Put A Ron Paul option????

Thtat's an incredibly

simplistic and stupid quiz. The questions are way too general and hit upon pretty much none of the topics that are of any importance. Did he vote to fund the Patriot Act? How about wars? How about the TSA and NSA? Is there anything that has to do with freedom in that quiz? BAH!

As I saw this I had an idea

It would be good to have a big bank of questions (maybe the votes that Ron Paul did during his congress time) and for someone to develop a simulator to "train" all those interested in running for public office together with good explanations on why that is the best choice. Let's use the awesome experience of the good doctor....

Ted Cruz too

But it would probably be closer to Ron Paul because I said no to almost everything.

For example, I don't know the content of the reform bill for sugar subsidies off the top of my head, but just the fact that they use the word "reform" instead of "remove" was enough for me to vote Nay.

Maki,

I had the the same train of thought on that question.
The poll was misleading.

Ha! That was silly, it said I

Ha! That was silly, it said I am Ted Cruz. I guess because I would have voted against confirming all those cabinet people. Which is really a non issue. It should of had more substantial questions. Take it my friends, and see who you are.

I will see if I can try again!
:D

Yep, I just tried again, I am

Yep, I just tried again, I am now Rand Paul. Here

Rand Paul:

"SUPPORTED: Ending aid to Egypt; reforming programs for sugar growers; removing the chain of command in sexual assault cases; confirming Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary, John Kerry as Secretary of State and Jack Lew as Treasury Secretary. OPPOSED: Overhauling immigration laws; pairing increases in the debt limit with spending cuts; passing Rep. Paul Ryan's 2013 budget; confirming John Brennan as CIA director."

Ted Cruz:

"SUPPORTED: Ending aid to Egypt; pairing increases in the debt limit with spending cuts; reforming programs for sugar growers; removing the chain of command from sexual assault cases. OPPOSED: Overhauling immigration laws; passing Rep. Paul Ryan's 2013 budget; confirming John Brennan as CIA director, Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary, Jack Lew as Treasury Secretary and John Kerry as Secretary of State."

Marco Rubio:
"SUPPORTED: Overhauling immigration laws; pairing increases in the debt limit with spending cuts; passing Rep. Paul Ryan's 2013 budget; confirming John Brennan as CIA director and John Kerry as Secretary of State. OPPOSED: Reforming programs for sugar growers; ending aid to Egypt; removing the chain of command in sexual assault cases; confirming Chuck Hagel as Defense Secretary and Jack Lew as Treasury Secretary."

Better watch it...

First cruz, now Rand. You are beginning to sound like a flip-flopper, my friend ;-)
