US Presidential candidates unravelled

I get bewildered by discussions on blogs, newsgroups and elsewhere on the various US presidential hopefuls. I've no idea what most of them stand for or whether I should agree with people who laud them to the heavens or denounce them for their evil policies.

But then I found one of those web sides that asks about policies and links them to candidates, so now I can at least have an idea of who the good guys are (the ones who agree with me, natch!)

So if I was in the US and was a US citizen, these are the two guys I'd be tossing the coin between:


Ron Paul
Score: 28
Agree
Iraq
Stem-Cell Research
Abortion
Social Security
Energy
Death Penalty
Disagree
Immigration
Taxes
Health Care
Line-Item Veto
Marriage
Dennis Kucinich
Score: 28
Agree
Iraq
Immigration
Taxes
Health Care
Social Security
Death Penalty
Disagree
Stem-Cell Research
Abortion
Line-Item Veto
Energy
Marriage

And if you can't see it properly because it spills over into the sidebar, check it on MySpace.

Both of these men are`known for their integrity and diagnoses of many of our current political woes.

The key difference between the two is their vision of the purpose of government. Kucinich is basically a socialist at heart who would like the federal government to fix our problems MORE EFFICIENTLY than it currently does. Ron Paul is basically a libertarian at heart who would like to reduce the size and scope of the federal government and leave more difficult issues up to the local governments of individual states.

So, while they both have a good sense of what's wrong, they take radically different approaches to fixing the problem.
