Select Your Candidate

Since Election Day (and my brother's birthday, not that that has anything to do with it) is coming up Tuesday, I thought it was a good time to re-take this Select a Candidate Quiz. Not that I'm not already pretty sure of who I'm going to vote for, but it doesn't hurt to double check and make sure I'm voting for him because I agree with his stand on the issues. It is most definitely not OK to vote for someone because he is or is not black, because his name sounds more presidential, or just because your friends and neighbors say you should.

With all these commercials all the time, it's hard to really know where anyone stands sometimes. Once you take the quiz and find out how you score with the candidates, you can read more about their positions on the issues included on the quiz, along with explanations and sources. Quite handy.

Just a quick question: how do you give tax cuts to the unemployed?
