Election Day 2012 is just around the corner. While the current zeitgeist in American politics is that we vote for “the person we’d rather have a beer with” (if so, Romney is in trouble), we at the Rio Grande Foundation prefer that voters choose their preferred candidate based on who they actually agree with on various important policy issues.
To that end, I recommend this website. Whether you vote for the candidate you actually agree with is another story, but it is worth cutting through the media’s filters and actually figuring out with whom you agree. For example, my mother who typically votes Democrat was quite surprised to find that she agrees with Gary Johnson and, to a lesser extent, Mitt Romney far more than the other candidates in the race.
