2008 Presidential Candidate Matching Quiz

Hmm, I thought Tancredo had dropped out (and didn't at least one of the Dem candidates as well?).  One reason I matched him so well is due to the immigration issue.  We have our share of problems with it here in NY, especially close to the city.  Especially gang related problems (MS-13 for one) and the day laborers issue.  Also we had a house across the street - a fairly large mother/daughter house, bought by a landlady who carved it up into many small apartments for illegal housing.  One of the men who lived there for a while was arrested for statutory rape.  Call me cruel and heartless on this issue, but I've seen what goes on firsthand so it's an issue that's pretty important to me.

As for all the GOP/red names leading the pack... Well, yeah I'm a pretty conservative, down-home gal.  I'm leaning more towards Thompson for who I'm supporting but I don't think he has much of a chance of getting the nomination.  I'm taking a more wait-and-see attitude, I guess. 

Now awaiting the outcry/name-calling/stoning/deletion-from-various-Friends'-lists...  *taps foot*... 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4.......


(hey, people have had fun bashing me over politics before - and I have the pretty-colored bruises to prove it!)

It seriously irks me when people bash Republicans. I HATE it more than I can find words for. just because someone is a conversative doesn't make them stupid or backwards or whatever.

I equally hate when I see some conservatives assume them anyone who is liberal or Democrat have no morals or values. I mean, come on.

I am happily independent. Go you for posting your opinions and not being sorry for it :)

Yeah, there are bad apples on both sides of the aisle. Some people can just be way too much. I've been on forums that had nothing to do with politics and people would just get into the mudslinging anyway. It's such a waste of energy that I try to avoid it as much as possible nowadays.

Thanks for the encouragement there. :)

Thanks :) That's my take on the whole thing as well - live and let live. The world would be a very boring place if we were all the same. Different strokes for different folks. And it's nice that, at the end of the day, we still respect each other. :)

No bashing from me either.....I can barely make head or tail of our political system these days, let alone another country's!....*snortle*

Each to their own political persuasion.....if we don't agree, we're still in no position to bash!....

The Blue and Red are pretty though!!.....*winks*

Deeds xx

Teehee... that is a very good point!

I try to stay out of it for the most part. I've been subjected to political mudslinging on various forums (that had nothing to do with politics to be honest) in the past. It just wastes so much time and energy. There are so many more important (and interesting) things to talk about. :)

They are quite lovely shades of red and blue! *grin*
