wow, I like this. Except that my top choices are not even close to winning the primaries. The highest score that is well known is Edwards and he's at a whopping -6. I come from a strict republican area and republican family but I consider myself a moderate, and Mr. Guilani, the GOP leader came in at -34 on my scorecard. My winner was Ron Paul, but with only a score of 22. I guess I don't agree with many of the candidates

A lot of my republican friends are behind Ron Paul too.

Would be nice if he actually stood a chance.

it's early my friend. i still think the odds are low, but he's got more campaign money than McCain, growing name recognition, and he's the only person on either side who believes every word he says. People may disagree with him on things, but he's plainly honest and takes positions based on principle, not electability. Even if a Ron Paul presidency is one term and mediocre in accomplishment, this country could use a personality like his just for a shake-up.

on to the results:
Paul 53
Gravel 24
Kucinich 18

very interesting. No surprise on the big Ron Paul score, but having Gravel and Kucinich up there makes no sense. I think Iraq makes up almost all of the score for them. There are a lot of topics left out of the survey that are very important to me and would definitely change the results below Paul. Also, some of the topics included were not descript enough. For example, I am 100% in favor of embryonic stem-cell research, but 100% opposed to federal funding for it.

Paul 72 ;-D

Giuliani -50 :-b

I haven't found anyone worth voting for in 15 years, but if I was an American I would certainly cast a ballot for Ron Paul. A longhsot yes, but with each passing day that seems to change a bit. It will be interesting to see if he runs for the top job as an independent if he loses his party's nomination as he likely will.
