Default isidewith.com and the extra parties

I took the quiz, and I was shocked to see that it lined me up with Jill from the green party. I won't be voting for the green party, but I will definitely consider the second or third people on the list (neither of which were Obama or Romney).

On another note, I think if everybody actually voted for the candidate they agreed with the most, somebody other than a democrat or republican might win, but since everybody thinks they have no chance they vote for one of the big two and just perpetuate the cycle. Thoughts?

I was shocked that it labelled me a hippy as well. I think it might be the science research thing that put me there, since I rated all the science funding as "most important".

Jill first (according to the results), then I think it was Gary Johnson. I actually took it about a week ago so I don't remember the numbers.

Prepare to be confused:

78% Gary Johnson
on foreign policy, domestic policy, healthcare, and immigration issues

66% Ron Paul
on foreign policy, domestic policy, and healthcare issues

56% Mitt Romney
on domestic policy issues

53% Barack Obama
on immigration and science issues

45% Florida Voters
on foreign policy, domestic policy, healthcare, science, immigration, environmental, and social issues.

45% American Voters
on foreign policy, domestic policy, healthcare, science, immigration, environmental, and social issues.



54% Libertarian
43% Democratic
37% Green
28% Republican


I sumbitted my own answer for a few of those questions, like those for global warming and the stimulus plan, which likely make my results less precise. That probably explains why I don't side with any of the candidates on economic policy...

I said things like: I dont think the UN should exist in the first place, and most other were user submitted. It's too complicated for a simple yes and no.
