An online test put up by Republicans that relied only on issue positions but left out a lot of issues and anyway assumed all issues could be assigned weights of 1 through 5 for purposes of evaluating candidate compatibility said I should vote for Trump, by a considerable margin.
Even if it is true that there are no such things as litmus tests or absolute deal breakers, this radically underestimates the difference in importance between something utterly trivial and something literally life or death.
There were no questions about protectionism, abandoning NATO, abandoning non-proliferation, or Social Security, and not enough questions about Medicare.
There were no questions about dealing with debt by defaulting or inflating the currency.
There were no questions about the EU.
There were no questions about the candidates' commitment to separation of powers, republicanism, faithful execution of the laws, or protection of and loyalty to American political institutions.
There were far too few questions about torture and there was nothing about "going after their families."
And nothing about credibility, trustworthiness, character, depth of understanding of the issues, or suitability for the office.
There were a lot of questions but it was all the same a shallow and poorly designed test.
I will be voting for the Democratic nominee, and I hope that will be Hillary.
