Call for Comments!!!

USA Today [1] has been kind enough to boil the whole election down to 11 questions, and provided a tool so you can answer the questions, and then get USA Today to tell you which candidates align most with you.  I took the quiz, and the candidates that supposedly would be most aligned with my thinking are (in order):

    1) Mitt Romney
    2) Tom Tancredo
    3) Mike Huckabee

Of the three, I think Mike is most likely (right now) to get my vote.  Still have time (45 days to the Iowa Caucus as of this writing).

That said, I really am dreadfully afraid of a country that would actually think USA Today can tell them who their candidate is based on something as simple as 11 questions… worse yet, I know people like that (and yes, they also scare me because they have driver’s licenses too).  The questions themselves are very telling about how shallow we have become… according to USAT, these are the questions that matter most to people. The categories they covered include:

Of this list, I do care about:

I would add to this list:

Oh yeah, political accountability, particularly in dealing with bribery, abuses of power, misuse of government and election funds, and of course, being really stupid.

I’d like to know what you think.  What are the topics you care about most in this election?  Please leave a comment or email me at [email protected] [2].  I will collect responses for a couple of weeks (I’ll leave a link to this post in my sidebar) and post the results at the end of that time (plan on the evening of December 2.
