We need more than 2 parties.

I got to thinking, what would the election look like if instead of a list of candidates and parties, the ballot was just a listing of candidates positions on various topics? I recognize this would likely make voting more difficult, and next to impossible to determine clear/fair language for issues, but I think there’s got to be a better method than just party/name recognition.

http://www.isidewith.com/ has something similar to this idea. It gives you a list of issues, and you can say “yes,” “no,” or you can be more specific. Then after you’re done, it gives you a listing of what % match to the current batch of presidential candidates you are.

You can also share results with friends, and see how you compare via your results link.

Post your results in the comments, but also, if you found anything that surprised you.
