I enjoyed the quiz because it gave you different caveats more than just an up down Yes - No.

That was an interesting quiz, but it's a painful reminder that we still don't have a multi-party system.

Democrats - 96%
Greens - 96%
Socialists - 87%
Libertarians - 53%
Constitution Party - 23%
Republicans - 4%

There's a difference between lip service and actually putting into practice liberal policies, so I'd take the Democratic percentage with a huge grain of salt, especially since my foreign policy/immigration answers are the exact opposite of what Obama has been up to over the years (mass deportations, drone strikes, etc.).

I've been a registered Green since I became a voter over ten years ago fyi.



For example, it says the Democrats...

- Favor decriminalizing most drugs. Completely untrue.

- Favor term limits. Hardly.

- Say that law enforcement shouldn't grab illegals for minor crimes so they can be deported. Obama has deported more people that any past President.

- Want to shut down Guantanamo. Obama said that too...sure didn't happen.

- Are against NSA spying on allies...sorry, but the Commander-In-Chief sure wasn't.




It also had me disagreeing with the Greens on two issues. One because they didn't know the Green policy position and another where I actually had the same answer (we both disagree on raising the Social Security age - but the answer they gave the Greens was more specific).

So, really, my only disagreement with the Green Party was over term limits (I favor them) and I'm not even sure their platform is against term limits. You figure they would be for them as it would mean less corporate influence.

It also said Republicans are against gerrymandering and support GMO food labeling. Neither could be further from the truth, especially the lawsuits the party has filed against independent commissions determining the congressional boundaries.

Fun fact: I registered as Republican so I can vote for the worst candidates in their primary.

It's depressing that, though the majority of us identify most closely with the Green party, we would be throwing our vote in the garbage if we tried to support their candidates.

But I feel like if everyone of us who affiliate with the Green Party the most actually voted for Green Party, it really wouldn't be throwing our vote away. I feel like there's a lot more of us than we realize who would rather vote based on our values instead of confining ourselves to tweedledumb or tweedledumber. The Dems & Reps have done a fine job of convincing us to be too afraid to steer from them be cause we would "split the vote and the opposing party win."

Jill Stein managed to get on the ballot for...I think it was 38 states? There's still a lot of work to be done, but that's a pretty big deal.

A lot of states have adopted a Top-Two system where there's an open primary for, say, a US House seat and only the top two vote-getters advance to the general election. Even the Republican and Democratic parties hate this system as they don't get to properly vet their own candidates and can even be shut out completely in certain races (usually on the state level).

Basically, big money was pushing it since they can just fund their one guy in both the primary and the general rather than waste money in the primary on someone that fails to win their party's nomination. The dumbest part about all of this is that people in California, for example, actually voted for this nonsense. Not sure why on earth anybody would think limiting the amount of candidates to simply two would lead to more choice as the proponents claimed.

Bill Clinton in 2008 actually said the Presidential election should be a nationwide open primary where only the top-two advance to the general. Obviously, his reasoning is that the Democrats would have all voted for Hillary out of fear and name recognition.

Anyway, so you can't even vote third party in many states at this point. Occasionally, you'll get lucky in a liberal area like where I live and you can vote for Peace & Freedom instead of a Democrat when there's no Republican that makes it to the Top Two, but most of the time I just don't even vote for actual candidates any more because of this nonsense. And yes, in many districts, you end up with a general election of a Democrat vs. another Democrat and so forth. So much for choice.
