Rocks, Paper, Scissors: A Better Way To Vote

It is officially 2008, so we will be bombarded with Presidential Campaign News for the next eleven months.

If you’re like me, I prefer to remain oblivious to the campaign updates and scandals until October, when I feel an obligation to pick a team and start cheering. For this edition of Works for Me Wednesday, sponsored by Rocks In My Dryer, I’d like to share a better way to vote.

Ordinarily, my strategy is to pick the least scandalous candidate and vote for that person based on the campaign commercials that appeal to me. Although this may appear to be a very scientific and logical process, I’m sure you can easily see that it is flawed.

Instead of choosing a candidate, this year I prioritized the issues that are important to me and identified the candidate that shares my values using this website. I simply answered a few questions and this website told me which candidate thinks the same way I do.

Check it out for yourself.

Be warned: If you are matched to Mike Huckabee, you might as well vote for someone else. He was my closest match, but every presidential candidate I’ve ever voted for has lost the election. Sorry, Mike.

After you find your perfect match for the 2008 presidential election, stop by Rocks in My Dryer for more solutions to life’s little problems.

That was cool! Thanks for sharing. It was Ron Paul for me.

Dear me, that was funny. I'll have to re-think my idea of voting for Huckabee... ;)
