    Ditto.

    Correction: tried again and it worked. I should mention you have to click that "comparison wizard" to find what I think Peace is talking about.

    Strange site though. Some of the questions are just oddly worded; at least one is repeated twice.

    Same here, but I'll treat it as a serious question:

    The only issue Sarah and I agree on is Gun Control.

    Try it again I changed the URL and it worked for me.

    She has some seriously ambiguously worded statements.

    There isn't even a question about gun control on there. :p


    I was kind of worried, because in the early questions, I was about 80% in agreement with her. :O It came down to 32% though, after 31 questions. I had to skip 20 of them because my opinions weren't "yes" or "no", or the available options weren't right.


    Oh, and she thinks "under God" should remain in the Pledge of Allegiance because "If it was good enough for the founding fathers, it's good enough for me".

    Except that: 1.) It was written in 1892. 2.) "under God," was added by the Knights of Columbus 59 years later. 3.) Eisenhower agreed to adopt the amended pledge 3 years after that.


    Oh, and it was originally written by a socialist! :eek::eek::rolleyes:

    She speaks from our side of the fence and not the BS side that so many Washington Soldiers do. She may not be a Kennedy or Rockefeller, but she is a regular person who speaks to us not at us.
    She will be running for President in 4-8 years.

    She may speak to us, but she certainly doesn't speak FOR us. She has no ideas, and clearly has no idea what she's talking about.

    And what exactly is is your side of the fence?

    I speak from the Patriotic, work hard, play hard, God, Country, Family in that order side of the fence. If this side was good enough for our founding fathers its good enough for me.

    I appear to be 83% in lock step with Mrs. Palin. I'd better vote for her I'm thinking.;)

    Might want to re-think the God thing in your "side of the fence", as most of the founding fathers weren't Christian.

    That's less of a description of the founding fathers than a stereotype or a caricature.

    Have you discussed with your family that they're at the bottom of your priority list?

    Really? And people who disagree with her aren't patriotic, don't work hard or play hard, aren't religious, and don't care about their families? Are you serious?

    Did you intentionally mimic Palin with that last line? Was it supposed to be intentionally funny?

    She doesn't speak to me.

    Do you really want a "regular" person as president? Why wouldn't you want an extraordinary person?

    I keep thinking of the poor U.N. or State Department interpreters if she were speaking (without a speech) to a foreign head-of-state. How do you translate what she says, when she can't even put two coherent sentences together?

    Agreed, you make a good point.

    These people like to evoke the image of the founding fathers all the time, while in the same breath mention how nice it would be to have a "regular" person as president. The two statements are conflicting. The founding fathers were very well educated, intellectual, and elite. :eek: They weren't regular people at all. They were exactly the type of person they (the right) like to criticize as being "un-American".

    I don't want an idiot/regular person in the White House. I want someone smarter than me.

    Who was the last president we had that was bilingual? Actually bilingual, not Dubya thinking he can speak Spanish.

    Man I really hope Colin Powell comes out tomorrow and endorses Obama. Maybe that will help shut her up for a while.
