    not sure just how accurate this thing is.



    an example, they had a question about federal spending. one option was to increase the funding for both services and military. "services" can cover almost anything, most of which was not initially intended by the founding fathers, however military is one of the few areas specified. odds are libertarians would have an issue with that question.



    i also don't see how i can be in 100% agreement with Bush when i wanted to legalize drugs (high importance) and felt that a persons' right to privacy was of utmost importance. this test seems a bit off.



    NM, reread the end, mentions that 100% doesn't mean you agree with them, just that the canidate scored the highest.

    La Rouche gets 0% on everyone's rating because they are still compiling information on him.

    Not as representative of my views as I would have thought, but here it is anyway. Dean got a 100% vote from the NRA, while I specifically chose, as high importance, The Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. Heh, I'm Canadian so I guess it doesn't really matter.

    Well, here is mine. I disagree that it was a balanced survey though. It was slanted. See Below





    1. Bush, George W. - US President (100%)



    2. Lieberman Senator Joe CT - Democrat



    3. Kerry, Senator John, MA - Democrat



    4. Gephardt, Cong. Dick, MO - Democrat



    5. Kucinich, Cong. Dennis, OH - Democrat



    6. Libertarian Candidate (54%)



    7. Edwards, Senator John, NC - Democrat



    8. Graham, Senator Bob, FL - Democrat



    9. Phillips, Howard - Constitution



    10. Dean, Gov. Howard, VT - Democrat



    11. Sharpton, Reverend Al - Democrat



    12. Moseley-Braun, Former Senator Carol IL - Democrat



    13. LaRouche, Lyndon H. Jr. - Democrat







    From Kerry's "Positions" Description:



    "He backed efforts to restore $31 billion in highway cuts made by the Bush Administration last year, which threatened 300,000 jobs. "



    Hmmmm.

    Man, you really are sinking into some kind of paranoid state. The liberal media, the liberal AppleInsider, the liberal web sites...



    That's a quote from Kerry's web site, just like Bush's description is mostly composed of quotes from Bush's campaign and the White House.
