I was just looking at his website as well and surprisingly I agree with him on most of the issues. On the bright side I now know why I never really
agree with Democrats or Republicans, it turns out I am a Constitutionalist.
I didn't list the rest of my scores earlier, but I know I scored somewhere in the low 40's with Obama and in the high 30's with McCain. There
wasn't more than 5% between those two for me, I just forgot to copy and paste and I'm too lazy to re-download the file to take it again. (I think I
get credit for admitting my laziness though!)
It really didn't surprise me much that I scored higher with Obama than McCain, I usually agree with Democrat candidates more than I do Republican
candidates. I wasn't going to vote for Obama though, still am not going to actually, partly because of the issues I disagree with him on and partly
because of who he is as a person. That, in my mind anyway, is a factor that should be considered when deciding who to vote for. I won't go into a
long drawn out post over it since that would be slightly off-topic and since I've made posts in other threads that gave reasons why I won't vote for
Getting such a high percentage with Baldwin though is something to think about. Had I been old enough to vote when Ross Perot was running, I would
have voted for him. But alas I missed it by a few years. I wouldn't be against voting for a third party in this or any other election, it's just a
matter of acquiring enough information about that third party candidate for me to make an informed decision. Finding Baldwin's website was a good
start, but I will need to learn more about the guy, and his running-mate, before I would be willing to vote for him.
