Here is an interesting test that analyzes your issue preferences against likely 2016 candidates. I'd be interested to see what results other DDOians get.

My results: I agreed with Bernie Sanders on 91% of the issues. I agreed with Hillary Clinton on 74% of the issues. I agreed with Jeb Bush on 57% of the issues. And I agreed with Chris Christie on 41% of the issues.

I most disagreed with Carly Fiorina (disagreed on 95% of the issues) and Ted Cruz (disagreed on 93% of the issues.) I disagreed with Ben Carson and Scott Walker 87% of the time, and with Rand Paul 66% of the time.

Here is the quiz: http://www.isidewith.com...

Not to distract anyone from the discussion, but if you could all tell your friends, parents, whatever, to not choose a complete whacko as president for once, that would be great.

A candidate who adapts a more aggressive policy on dealing with Russia and China, an abortion abolitionist candidate, and a candidate who takes measures to provide greater protection for religious rights.

They're being forced to do gay marriage and they get such negative media coverage. They're the most oppressed group in the country.

Sure. Go ahead and deny cultural discrimination. Those black people are just overpriviliged whiners, right?

I think the republicans have a plan. These guys are not the real candidates. They are just pretending to be in the race so the democrats will give their nomination to Hillary, while thinking she will win anyway.
Then the republicans will cancel their primary elections, and have their nominee chosen by a public relations firm.

Well, my results were really surprising...

My top 3 matches:
Bernie Sanders - 69%
Marco Rubio - 43%
Ben Carson - 39%

My 3 lowest matches:
Rand Paul - 27%
Carly Fiorina - 27%
Scott Walker - 23%

However, I side with Rand Paul on Immigration, Healthcare, and Domestic Policy. Bernie Sanders on Environment and Social Policy. Jeb Bush on Foreign, Rick Santorum on Education, and Scott Walker on Economy.

Ultimately, it seems like I'm all over the f*cking place. I don't know anything about Bernie Sanders either. I'll have to start looking into him since he was the top match.

I can tell you he is the rare kind who could hold a conversation with the zombie Michele Bachmann, whose brain structure resembles that of a lifelong drug addict, without losing his cool.

There is a grand exchange of remarks between him and Rand Paul about health care worth watching on YouTube.
