I have finally listed some stuff on eBay. It took alot more effort than it should have, due to eBay feeling that my account was hacked and therefore blocking access to it. It took 3 days, but I got access, and got some stuff listed.
I listened to the first presidential debate on my computer, and watched the second early this morning on a Fox News rebroadcast. After coming to mixed opinions, I decided to look online for a survey to help me find who my best candidate is. My results were a bit off of what I expected:
1. Your ideal theoretical candidate. (100%)
2. Brown, Walt – Socialist Party (72%)
3. Cobb, David – Green Party (72%)
4. Nader, Ralph – Independent (63%)
5. Kerry, Senator John, MA – Democrat (56%)
6. Badnarik, Michael – Libertarian (36%)
7. Bush, President George W. – Republican (25%)
8. Peroutka, Michael – Constitution Party (9%)
Apparently my only chance of a 100% (or anything even close) match is to write in my own name. My top match though is Walt Brown, of the Socialist party. Of the 2 candidates that have any chance, Kerry is on top with 56% compared to Bush’s mere 25%.
Overall, based on my views toward what I heard on debates and read on their websites, Kerry is my more compatible on domestic policy while Bush is on foreign. So, I still am fairly unsure which way I will go, but it likely wont be socialist (though this isn’t the first time I have taken a survey and been deemed a socialist).
My overall view of the latest debate is that Kerry too often says “I have a plan” without saying a single word on what the plan is. What are all these plans? Are you going to invade Canada and make them our slaves? Are you going to have your wife’s family give us all free Ketchup so we forget our worries? Bush though, seems to always be defending his last 4 years in office and seldom saying what he will do. So, I am left seeing a choice of a president who wont explain his plans, or one that seems to have none at all.
Anyway, enough of that.
Not that I have much else.
I have posted more to the website. The links, PAQ, and disclaimer are now up. The links page has been slightly updated, but there are more additions I want to do (the “update” was just removing links, not adding). Still more to do, but it is going.
My 200th post will on December 14th. Thats not too far away really. This is 178 by the way, in case you wondered.
OK, I think thats it. I guess I will see you all on Tuesday.
Recent polls say you lost the debate?
Yeah, that’s why I never trust Poles, or Germans, French, or Russians for that matter.
