Who Gets My Vote?

I have no idea who I'm going to vote for in the 2008 Presidential Election. I'm very disappointed that Stephen Colbert was not approved to run; he couldn't have done any worse than those who are in office now.

That's the crux of the matter, for me: I don't like politicians. I don't trust them and I think they're all big fat liars. I didn't used to feel this way. I used to get excited about primaries and I used to campaign for candidates and I used to care.

Now, though, I feel like I've been sold a bill of goods, and like any consumer, I resent being duped. Some of the people who are proposing regulations have been in office longer than I've been alive, and they no longer have any idea what it's like to be down among the people (and they don't care either).

In addition, I find that our representatives are spending far too much time arguing over inconsequential or irrelevant issues, and they have become so arrogant in the Capitol that they are trying to make laws about things they have no business legislating.

So I don't know who my candidate is: I hate them all. Still, it's my privilege--and my duty as a U.S. citizen--to vote. Since I don't have any specific person in mind, I consulted the internet.

According to this quiz, I should consider backing both John Edwards (D) and Mike Huckabee (R); they are tied with 10 points each. Two candidates who are almost opposites of one another, and apparently I agree with both of them equally as much (on different issues).

This quiz is just like a politician, not giving me any definitive answer. I was hoping to avoid this, but ... I guess I'm going to have to do some research.

Thanks for nothing, INTERNET.

glassbooth.org has a much better quiz, although the server can be flaky and slow.
The quiz makes you rank issues first, then it picks support/oppose questions based on the ranking you set. Frex, if you don't care about crime issue, it won't ask you about the death penalty.
