Still on the fence about which presidential candidate you'd like to vote for?

Try iSideWith.com, an online political tool that matches your stance on various issues with those of Mitt Romney, Barack Obama or those running on other lines, such as Jill Stein, presidential candidate for the Green Party. 

The site was launched earlier this year to help voters match up with their ideal candidate, and it's quickly gaining popularity through social media channels. In fact, according to iSideWith.com's homepage, more than a million people have taken the free quiz to determine their ideal candidate since it went live in March.

The quiz covers everything from social issues to foreign policy. Answers can also be fine tuned: You can choose general or more detailed responses, and a scale allows you to set the level of importance for each issue. Your responses are then analyzed to determine your ideal candidate, complete with a breakdown of your response matches.

Why is it the Ted Kennedy was Rich yet was accepted as representing the poor the indigent, could see the plight of the middle class ? John Kerry is Rich and yet is seen as representing the views of the middle class ? Yet, Mitt Romney is chided for being successful and Rich, he needs to demonstrate and become accepted as the Kennedy's and many Rich democrats through out our countries history, that he too is a altruistic as former wealthy leaders. Billy Graham, Wisdom and Faith, traits of what Mitt Romney needs to convey, address and communicate in tomorrows town hall debate. Presidential debates, hmmmmm: Why Biden communicated the wrong signal to the voters, If a wise man has an argument with a fool, the fool only rages and laughs, and there is no quiet. - Proverbs 29:9 The trouble with the process is that we elect people, not having the skill sets, wisdom or intelligence to best represent what some call as the most powerful richest, democratic country in the free world ? The vetting process, for the best and brightest, with the most wisdom and perfect fit for the position are left by the side lines. Why ?

Obama is the new Napoleon---Napoleon saw nationalism as indispensable to maintaining the loyalty of the French people to his regime. . The trick was for Napoleon to build a personality cult around himself so that the French people would identify him with France itself and therefore make loyalty to him equivalent to loyalty to France. However, by identifying national loyalty with one man, Napoleon inadvertently weakened the inspirational force of nationalism and thus his own power.Napoleon's power and success up until 1808 apparently blinded him to his own limitations.He also left France BANKRUPT-and like Napoleon we intend to banish him to an island after he was relieved of his duties!!
