Notes from underground: US Presidential candidates redux

A couple of weeks ago I did one of those tests to see which of the US presidential hopefuls I should vote for if I were a US citizen: Notes from underground: US Presidential candidates unravelled

The answer was a tie between Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich.

Today I found another such quiz, and tried it to see if it would confirm the first one.

But this time the top candidates were Dennis Kucinich, Rudi Giuliani and Mike Gravel.

I remember Giuliani was pretty near the bottom of the previous quiz, and Kucinich has come top on both. So it looks like Kucinich is the one I should be rooting for, even if he didn’t push off the top searches on Technorati.

Political Compass shows that all of them, except Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel, belong to the authoritarian right.

US Presidential candidates unravelled

I get bewildered by discussions on blogs, newsgroups and elsewhere on the various US presidential hopefuls. I’ve no idea what most of them stand for or whether I should agree with people who laud them to the heavens or denounce them for their evil policies.

But then I found one of those web sides that asks about policies and links them to candidates, so now I can at least have an idea of who the good guys are (the ones who agree with me, natch!)

So if I was in the US and was a US citizen, these are the two guys I’d be tossing the coin between:

Ron Paul
Score: 28
Agree
Iraq
Stem-Cell Research
Abortion
Social Security
Energy
Death Penalty
Disagree
Immigration
Taxes
Health Care
Line-Item Veto
Marriage
Dennis Kucinich
