I am surprised that I'm 1% closer to Obama than the socialist in the race, but the questions I answered didn't focus on sharing the wealth.

If I was in New York, I'd be tempted to vote for Jimmy McMillan purely for the great beard.

  1. I scored 93% for Stein too. I'm only 80% matched with Obama, but I worry that a vote for anyone else is effectively a vote for Romney.

    Most of my political concerns relate to the corporatizing of America, how we are transforming from a capitalist economy into a capitalist culture. Many of our domestic policy, social, and foreign policy issues stem from this transformation.

    Today I heard an interview with Dennis Marker, author of "Fifteen Steps to Corporate Feudalism", subtitled "How the Rich Convinced America's Middle Class to Eliminate Themselves." He told the interviewer his book offers some solutions. http://thefifteensteps.com/

    1. My advice is to check the polling data before you vote. If it's pretty clear your state isn't up for grabs, vote your heart.

      I do like the term "corporate feudalism."

  2. I just heard on Tom Ashbrook's NPR program, On Point, that he will interview Jill Stein tomorrow (Tuesday).
