How To Find The Candidate That Works Best For You.

Posted by Catherine Morgan on November 11, 2007


If you want to just quickly and easily find out what candidates best reflect your opinion on the issues, then you are in luck.  There are many of these types of sites now available, and the newest to the political quiz arena is GlassBooth.  I came across this link at Political Safari, while researching for a post on my newest blog The Political Voices of Women (if you haven’t already, I hope you’ll check it out).

This is from the Blog…

There are over 3,000 pieces of information about candidate stances spread across 90 questions in the Glassbooth back end. To create any one question, every single candidate needs to have made a statement or vote on it in the public record. Thus, while it might be easy to find out what Barack Obama thinks about universal health care, it is much more difficult to find what Duncan Hunter thinks about the Alternative Minimum Tax. Basically, assembling the back end was no small task.

Working with On The Issues and a research team of a dozen volunteers, I figure the breakdown is as follows:

-Each question takes about three hours to research
-90 questions multiplied by three hours is 270 hours.

So ask yourself: Do you have 270 hours to find out where every single candidate stands on today’s important issues?

  1. I like related advice in a book called The Secret by Rhonda Byrne (you may know the CD audio version or popular DVD). In a nutshell, the idea is not to generate any negative thoughts or feelings about candidates you don’t like. Disciple your mind not to think about them. Rather, focus on creating positive energy concerning the candidates and platforms you favor. The reason is that the Universe responds to energy vibrations, not your sense of positive and negative slants. Thus, to think about someone is to send them energy that may impact elections in undesirable ways. Focus on uplifting visions of future involving love,, healing, peace, harmony and learn to recognize the value synchronicity. You are and become what you think.
