3 Days To Go...


"There's never been a day in the last four years I've been proud to be his Vice President! Not one single day. Not one single day!"

- VP Joseph Biden and Teller of truth!



It's getting down to the wire. We're in the final push. We're coming to the end of the line. The buck stops...oh, you get my drift. In three days, we head to the polls to cast our votes in THE most important election of our lives...literally. Collectively, we will be deciding in which direction we will go. Will it be down the dark alley that is leading us to wrack and ruin or back on that main road to recovery?

Just in case you are among the scores of "undecided" voters, here is a LINK to a little quiz that may help aid you in your final decision. (Please note that there are expanded answers if you click "Choose another stance".

Feel free to share your results in the comments! Good luck!

Here are my results, but no peeking until you post yours.

P.S. It is possible that the results of the election in New York will be delayed.. Our laws have a catastrophic event clause that allows counties to to seek permission for a second day of voting within 20 days if there is less than 25% turnout at a polling station as a direct result of a catastrophic event. It has never been invoked.

In New Jersey, people will be voting on mobile voting stations provided by the National Guard in effected areas.

Connecticut voters will be voting as usual. As of today,, only one polling station has been affected and has been moved..

Bev, That quote from Biden is priceless... and I'm sure we all share that view as well. :)

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, Apparently, I'm 96% Johnson/Libertarian, 84% Romney/Republican and I somehow agree with President Dipstick on 20%.

T-Rav said...

Huh? Who on this blog is undecided????

Also, that's such a tragedy about New York results. Those pivotal returns could....keep the election....in doubt....for....two whole minutes, or something.

BevfromNYC said...

I'm 98% Romney, 79% Johnson/Libertarian, 71% Goode/Constitution and 64% Pres. D'Stick (WHAT????)

Other stats - 48% New York (That doesn't surprise me at all!) and 52% US Voter.

BevfromNYC said...

T-Rav - There must be SOMEONE who reads this blog who is undecided! They shouldn't be, but hey, you never know. ;-) Since I seemed to be aligned with Obama at 64%, I may have to rethink my decision...NOT!

Long Island/Suffolk County may be the most affected now and since they may not get any power until late next week, they may not be able to vote. They have other concerns right now.

T-Rav said...

Welp, took the quiz. I got 97% agreement with Romney (no one use this against me, EVER), 98% agreement with Republicans overall, 78% with Gary Johnson (including on domestic issues, which I really don't understand), 45% of American voters, 44% of Missouri voters, and 36% with the Teleprompter-in-Chief. Zero percent agreement with the Green Party, which makes me feel better about myself.

AndrewPrice said...

Wait a minute... T-Rav, you scored 9% higher than me on agreement with Romney? How did that happen? You're also 16% higher on agreement with Obama.

BevfromNYC said...

I hope you don't use this against me, but I am at 17% Green Party and 27% Democrat!

Tennessee Jed said...

90% Johnson, 85% Romney, 21% Obama

AndrewPrice said...

Jed, You and I sounds like twins separated at birth! Unlike T-Rav who's a HUGE Romney supporter and Bev who seems to be an Obams supporter. LOL!

BevfromNYC said...

Thank goodness! I can finally be honest!! It's been very hard to be here day after day pretending to be with you when I was really just a pretending...but now that I've been found out I can purge my soul...or wait if I'm an Obama supporter I HAVE no soul...or do I have too much? I'm so confused...must...drink...kool-aid!

rlaWTX said...

I am actually a little more liberal-ish in those areas I don't agree with Romney... hmmmmmm

87% Romney (92% Ted Cruz)
73% Johnson
51% Goode (WHO??)
20% TOTUS (gag)
53% Texas
50% American
85% Republican
61% Libertarian
10% Democrat
5% Green

rlaWTX said...

(I think I was too specific for the comparisons)

Tennessee Jed said...

Andrew, I never would have guessed that (wink, wink, natch, natch)

T-Rav, Channeling Libertarians said...

It's because there's no difference between Romney and Obama!!!! ELEVENTY!!!!

T-Rav said...

rla, Virgil Goode would be the Constitution Party's presidential candidate. I have no idea what that means. Also, since you got 5% identity with the Green Party and I got zero, I'm clearly more of a conservative than you are.

AndrewPrice said...

Jed, LOL! Yeah, we do seem to have similar views at times don't we! :)

AndrewPrice said...

rlaWTX, Are you allowed to 5% Green and still live in Texas?

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, Drink more Kool Aid... it quenches reality. :)

tryanmax said...

Hmm, I'm apparently a Johnson Libertarian as well (97%) with only 84% agreement with Romney. I'm also 77% Constitutionalist, which unsettles me. One of us is reading from the wrong Constitution.

If low score wins, I only side with Obama on 12%. Of course, that assumes Obama is being honest when he says that "able-bodied, mentally capable adults who receive welfare should be required to work." Should I stop believing in evolution b/c Obama does?

No worries, I'll never have my way. I only agree with 47% of Americans. Where have I seen that number before? LOL!

tryanmax said...

BTW, I don't mean to be a party-pooper, but listening closely to the Biden soundbite, I'm concluding that what has been commonly been deciphered as "I've" is really a drunkenly slurred "I ain't" or, more accurately "Iaeut." Alternately, it could also be a suppressed belch, also attributable to drink.

BevfromNYC said...

Why am I the highest so far for Romney (98%) and the waaaay highest for Obama (65%)! I'm so conflicted? Maybe I'm a Neo-Conservative Liberal Constitutionally Green Libertarian? I didn't know...I DIDN'T KNOW??? I wish I had never taken this quiz..now who am supposed to vote for? The quiz can't lie!

But I'm definitely NOT aligned with the Justice Party! Phew...I dodged THAT bullet!

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, That is exactly what you are! You didn't know? The rest of us knew...

If I were you, I'd vote for Romney... twice.

AndrewPrice said...

You know what I find so interesting is that we're all so different. That tells me that the readers of Commentarama are definitely an independent bunch!

We need to put a stop to that!

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, I'm not sure anyone in the Constitution Party has ever read the Constitution. If they did, they forgot what they read!

Yeah... where have I heard that 47% before? Hmm.

CrisD said...

95% Republican, 85% Libertarian and 5% Democrat--all inside of little ole me.

It matched me up with Romney.

But, it was a harder test than I thought because I always want to add if, ands or buts to issues and I didn't feel like "writing in my own answer".

But that was super fun, Bev, Thanx!!!!

AndrewPrice said...

Cris, In some ways, the test was silly. I doubt that I agree with Obama 20% of the time. I think that like all tests like this, it wasn't able to distinguish between general support and support of specific policies. In fact, I know the questions where it thinks I agree with Obama, but I know I don't -- I just don't agree with their spin on what he's trying to do.

Jen said...

92% Romney, 98% Republican (not going to get into specifics on what they were).
88% Johnson, 68% Libertarian.
76% Goode
43% Obozo-immigration ONLY, 3% Dummocrat
I didn't check the rest of the candidates.
3% Green Party (on what???)
46% Indiana voters
49% American voters

T-Rav said...

Andrew, my understanding is that yes, you can be 5% Green Party and still live in Texas, but only in Austin. And if it gets above 10 percent, even they're going to be like "Hey now..."

Jen said...

Andrew, What's wrong with being different? Maybe we are more like independent thinkers.

tryanmax said...

So, I know that quiz was based solely on policy matters, but I still can't shake the nagging feeling that I only alight with Obama 12% because I am a hardcore racist. Help me out?

AndrewPrice said...

Jen, Who said it's a bad thing to have independent thinkers? I actually think it's pretty interesting that we're all so different. That's not what most people would have you believe. Most people think that everyone who reads a blog must be a clone of the writers. Apparently not.

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, I could see that... up to 10% in Austin but then they cut you off.


tryanmax, Unless you are 100% with Obama then you are indeed a racist. That's what the Democratic Party/MSM tells us and they would never lie to us, would they?

Jen said...

Andrew, You misunderstood me. I read your comment "You know what I find so interesting is that we're all so different. That tells me that the readers of Commentarama are definitely an independent bunch!

We need to put a stop to that!


The "We need to put a stop to that!" was what
got my attention.

I like that fact that we are all so different. Maybe I need to get some "talking fonts", that way, no one will mistake my humor. Or sarcasm if it applies.

I've also noticed that peoples' tempers tend to be very short right now, and I attribute it to the tension of the election.

AndrewPrice said...

Jen, I was joking about "We need to put a stop to that." I like that our audience is independently minded.

I think people are anxious at the moment because there is a lot riding on the election.

Jen said...

Andrew, Yeah, I hear ya. And it's a good thing you were joking, because I was about to say "Care to step outside?...", and maybe inflict a little Chicago politics. ;) ;)

The Donks try to act as though we are 'Cookie Cutter People'--that's how I refer to it (a little back and forth happened between me and The Professor, if you know what I mean). It drives me bonkers.

T-Rav said...

Guys, no fighting on the blog. :-)

Hey, if you can't trust the MSM, who can you trust, amiright?

AndrewPrice said...

T-Rav, Don't worry, we can always step outside to Huffpo's e-parking lot to fight. ;)

Exactly, if you can't trust the MSM, then who can you trust?

AndrewPrice said...

Jen, They push the idea of "cookie cutter people," i.e. mindless drones, because that is what most of them are.

rlaWTX said...

I lived in Austin for a year, many moons ago. Or maybe I was just wishing there was a little green 'round here...
I hope they don't kick me out for that little teensy percentage... I'll recant whatever those answers were!

T-Rav - you win the "more conservative than me" prize - congrats! Grab one of Andrew's invisible tees on your way out...

obiwan2009 said...

What kind of quiz is this?!!! 92% Mitt Romney, 87% Gary Johnson, 72% Virgil Goode, 15% Barack Obama. Somehow I think this thing is a little rigged or something. Since when is Obama so much an opposite, according to this quiz, to Gary Johnson?!!!

How on Earth could I possibly be more than 90 percent similar to any of these candidates? I guess I must be a moderate or something?

As a side note, are we still doing the Trek review on Tuesday? I could use a little of that after I'm done with the ballot casting.

AndrewPrice said...

obiwan, We're switching to Star Wars on Tuesday. We'll come back to Trek eventually, but we wanted to do something different for a bit.

AndrewPrice said...

rlaWTX, Nice handout of a free tee shirt! ;)

darski said...

Could we consider B5 for discussions at some point?

BTW, I'll be praying and watching Tuesday. Will we be gathering here for the evening?

AndrewPrice said...

darski, I'll put something together on B5. I think that would be well received! :)

And yes, we'll be gathering here Tuesday night.

Thanks for your prayers! The US needs them! :)

BevfromNYC said...

OMG! The very liberal New York Daily News endorses ROMNEY! I'm shocked!

Patriot said...

As expected....I side with Gary Johnson and Mitt Romney. 11% with BO?! But there's no supporting results for that summary.

I've taken these types quizzes before and always end up Libertarian in my views....yet I support Romney and not the Libertarian candidate. I'm sure there's plenty more like me out there...hold differing views yet support a different candidate than the one they "select" through these quizzes.

Sorta like the street interviews where the questioner asks people if they support Obama's policies while claiming they are Romney or vice versa, and it doesn't matter...they will support their guy no matter what the stance is. anybody at this stage of the game is lying through their teeth if they are still "undecided."

tryanmax said...

Nutz! I was reveling in my 12% low-score on Obama. Oh well, at least I'm a very tight second, and nowhere near the rest of you liberal commies!

Patriot, I don't know if you can still bring it up (it may still be in your browser history) but you can click on the various percentages to get supporting info. Not that it's very good.

According to the site, the president and I agree that
- welfare recipients should have to work, even though he clearly does not believe that.
- the internet should not be regulated despite SOPA.
- SuperPACs should be allowed to operate even though he and his party attack them every chance they get. (But he does still take their money, so...)
- illegal immigrants should not have access to free healthcare, even though he has done everything he can to make merely identifying illegals impossible.

Some items I don't have a beef with, be both:
- believe the theory of evolution
- feel the US govt should scale back NASA (though we differ in amount)
- believe the federal gov't should maintain the death penalty (though I disagree with death by unmanned drone)
- think we should maintain a presence in the UN.

Kit said...

Mitt Romney: 94%
Gary Johnson: 82%
Virgil Goode: 66%
Barak Obama: 53%
Rocky Anderson: 3%
Jill Stein: 1% (I wonder which issue)

Jen said...

T-Rav, Andrew, I was just having a little fun, and trying to lighten the mood around here. Is that allowed???

Andrew, The 'cookie cutter people/mindless drones' can stay with the Dems. That'll make it all the more easier for us to control them, if you know what mean. :D

I recall my comment some time ago about targets. We are the stationary targets, yet they can't hit us, and they are the moving targets, and we can hit them every time (consistently inconsistent).

AndrewPrice said...

Bev, Is that even allowed under New York law? I thought they had to support the Democrat?

AndrewPrice said...

tryanmax, That was my thinking too. I know the issues where I claim to believe what Obama does, but they are using things he claims to believe in a general sense even though he's acted in total opposition to those when it comes to policy.

BevfromNYC said...

Andrew - I was surprised. I'm sure they will be fined or double-taxed! There's probably a "Republican Endorsement Tax Penalty" in the tax code somewhere.

And their reasoning is pretty clear.

BevfromNYC said...

Tryan and Andrew - No, this quiz is scientific and accurate and stuff! Heed the warning of the Quiz!

Individualist said...

Romney 93% and Johnson 81%

Individualist said...

Ok got back to the results:

Romney 93%
Johson 81%
Goode 70%
Obama 31% (Yuck)
Jill Stein 7%
Rocky Anderson 2%

Republican 98%
Libertarian 57%
Green 13% (WTF)
Democrat 4%

Domestic - Mitt Romney
Environment Goode and Romney
Healthcare Gary Johnson
Economy Mitt Romney
Science - Mitt Rommney
Foreign Policy - Romney
Immigration issues - Romney
Social - Gary Johnson

My results are skewed because I had to write my own stance to at leat six of the questions including correcting Darwinian evolution which is dynamic suggesting gradual changes in species over thousands of years to static evolution which states that as a species is threatened the surviors will be those with beneficial mutations and the change will be very abrupt and static (a tendency to remain stable over time but with abrupt changes as envirnmental factors threaten a species).

It is important politically in that protecting a threatened species may infact be stopping the evolutionary process that creates a speices more sutied to the changed environment.

I have no idea how they counted any of that.
