My dream candidate, apparently

I took this online questionnaire thingy to identify the candidate I most agree with on the issues.  It seems that Green Party candidate Jill Stein is the one for me.  But unfortunately, thanks to our voting system and Duverger's Law, I'll wind up voting for Obama and the system will fail to accurately record my true policy preferences.

More on Duverger's Law, and how the two-party system is a tremendously destructive force in our democracy, tomorrow.  Er, later today.

As long as you compromise your vote to whom you believe will be the winning party as opposed to whom you truely believe in, then that will continuesly cement a two party system.
