who you voting?

a few days ago i was considering making a quiz not unlike those idiot online quizzes everyone takes but pretends not to take

only this quiz would be about the upcoming elections and would tell you which party best suits your views

i quickly stopped thinking about it because i don’t have the technical expertise to make something like this (though i probably have friends who do) and because i wouldn’t know how to stay unbiased (mainly via the questions asked)

but, the folks over at politics watch have done precisely such a thing

their voteselector quiz asks you a few key questions and turns out the political party (and leader) whose views most match your own

very cool
(for a guy doing a major in political science)

    Wow, it was actually right. Layton scored 100 for me. =)

    The funny thing was how both the Liberals and the Conservatives got the same score on mine. 41! Ha!

    NDP Zindabad!

    Not that I can actually vote just yet, but yeaaaaaah… good stuff.

    Haha, this is so correct. I got conservative on this.

    Got conservative way back when I did this quiz: http://quizilla.com/users/hazelwudi/quizzes/Where%20do%20you%20fall%20on%20the%20liberal%20-%20conservative%20political%20spectrum%3F%20%20(United%20States)/

    if the bloc was running in ontario i’d vote for it

    then they could expand the borders of quebec to here and make a huge socialist francophone state

    Yeah, the Bloc was my second one too. A Socialist state, whether francophone or not, doesn’t sound all that bad, actually. =)

    Basit: Hahahha… might as well vote for the Communist Party or the Marijuana Party.

    here in kingston the Green Party has a pretty respectable following. they’re preaching to all the little kids and so my brother came home say he’d vote for them [municipal level] because they promised to give out free bikes.

    Well, the gay who wants ali added me to msn and offered cheap death threats my sister could have editted. I mean, I don’t really own nome whatever, I just comment occasionally, casually. Attention whoring is sort of cool. Like, never mostly.
