The free quiz takes an in-depth look at your stance on a range of issues, then compares them to candidates' responses.

Are you on the fence about which presidential candidate you'd like to vote for? Then iSideWith.com is the political tool for you. The website matches your stance on various issues with those of Mitt Romney or Barack Obama. 

The new website was launched earlier this year to help voters match up with their ideal candidate, and it's quickly gaining popularity through social media channels. In fact, according to iSideWith.com's homepage, more than a million people have taken the free quiz to determine their ideal candidate since it launched in March.

The quiz covers everything from social issues to foreign policy and answers can be fine tuned: You can choose general or more detailed responses, and a scale allows you to set the level of importance for each issue. Your responses are then analyzed to determine your ideal candidate, complete with a breakdown of your response matches.

Seems to be a pretty handy tool, but does it work? You tell us. Take the free quiz on iSideWith.com and let us know what you think. Is the candidate it matched with you the candidate you plan to vote for?

Apathy is not knowing what has been going on this country as I showed in my response to you above. You are a hopeless idealist or a left wing Kool-Aid drinker. Here's one example, "The family unit has collapsed. the only way to fix it is the power of love instead of the love for power. We need to care about each other again. Be the good neighbor." Actually, what we need to get back to is what made this country great in the first place - the US Constitution, limited government, low taxes, free markets, secure borders and a strong national defense apparatus. Did you know that in 1965 right after the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed the births to single mothers in the black community was 25%. Today it is 72.5%. This correlates closely with Lyndon Johnson's Great Society programs which have become like a Democrat Plantation that is trapping blacks in poverty and hopelessness. Over 95% of blacks blindly vote for the same Democrat Party who fought a civil war to keep them enslaved and tried to filibuster civil rights legislation in the mid 1960's and tried to physically subdue blacks through the KKK.

A "fool" is a person lacking in judgment or prudence. If you look in a mirror you may see one. Just sayin'.

Eagle. Is that all you do is troll the internet and insult people? Your all over the net with your insults to people who do not think as you do. It's a good way to get your point across. BTW Idealist wrote the constitution. Apathy is indifference. You my friend should look into the mirror instead of laying blame. We are all at fault along with the last 5 generations for not watching closely and taking the proper actions. Now it seems to late...maybe not. The world is full of people like you. Have the answer for everything and quick to blame. At least your not in charge of anything. (I hope) There may still be hope for the idealist. The "you fools" was a troll for you. I apologize to other readers. Grin....

No, it is not all I do. However, every now and then an opportunity like you comes up for remedial re-education. Unlike most of you, I am a brown-skinned immigrant from a previously socialist country, so I know at first hand how liberalism/socialism or whatever the nomenclature du jour is for the intellectual successors of Karl Marx depend on their very existence on a foundation of falsehoods, starting with the obvious idiocy that a small group of ruling elite - in today's America the clueless Obama as head of the Democrat "starting five" which includes Biden, Pelosi, Reid and Blabbermouth-Schultz, whose combined IQ is about the same as a box of rocks - can know what's good for everyone else better than they do. BTW, you seem to like the word "apathy" probably without knowing what it means. It actually describes fools like you who deal in gross generalities without a clue about the specific causes and effects of what has been going on in this country for the last generation or so as we lurch inexorably towards the weak and feckless countries in Europe. Thus you are unable to "blame" those who caused the problem and can blithely opine that "love" and caring for our neighbor is the solution to all our problems - which is exactly what the modern Democrats want you to think as they relentlessly destroy everything that made this country great. Or haven't you noticed - unless your apathy causes you, too, to blame Bush just like the whiny Obama does.

So your an Immigrant. So you really don't no the history behind the facts of these United States. I don't blame any single person for what this country has become. I blame greed. There were term limits for all public office. Soon as they were taken away the people who were asked to represent us became power brokers for sale to the highest bidder. Greed has taken over. If a company was run like this country is everyone would be fired if not worse. Also you could not have a civil conversation with a light post. Matter of fact your highly dangerous. People like you get people killed because of your blinded conviction in what you believe. Everyone is to blame for our current situation....Except you funny enough because your not from here..to funny. But your post are divisive and do not contribute to solving of the problem so you fit right in with current climate.
