Followers of this blog know that I enjoy political tests, even though their main use is to make you consider issues you don’t normally think about. As a guide for how to vote, consider what they say, but don’t rely too heavily on them. I recently found a new one, I Side With, which lets you answer a smallish number of questions in order to evaluate which American presidential candidate you ought to side with.
1. Gary Johnson (
R Libertarian) – 94%
2. R. Lee Wrights (Libertarian) – 87%
3. Ron Paul (R) – 84%
4. Fred Karger (R) – 80%
I’ll be the first to admit that I had never heard of R. Lee Wrights or Fred Karger. Obviously, these four are not exactly realistic contenders for the position. From what I know of him, I do like Gary Johnson, and sympathize with some of Ron Paul’s positions.
Overall, the questions posed cover too little ground to make I Side With truly interesting. Feel free to share your results in the comments!
Update: I previously mislabelled Gary Johnson as a Republican. While he used to be — indeed he started the election cycle as a Republican contender and also governed New Mexico as a Republican — he has since switched to the Libertarian party.
