Summer is ending and 2016 isn't actually that far away. For the lovely citizens of the United States, soon enough, our television and social media will be full of political campaign advertisements for hopefuls who want to become the 45th President of this country.
That means a lot of legal trash talking about why one politician is better than another and why they should get your vote. And, if you're like me, you'd rather not humor the idea of some of the candidates' particular stances, but you have no clue who to vote for.
It may be a while before the two major candidates from the Democratic and Republican parties are decided, but one of the best things you can do is try to figure out who best represents your opinions and stances on various issues. Thankfully, we don't have to worry about trudging through article upon article to find this information.
Now we've got a website to do that.
Politics can be very confusing and, thankfully, this website helps break it down so you can best decide what your stance is on various social, environmental, immigration, economic, domestic policy, healthcare, education, and foreign policy issues. A major bonus for this website is that it gives you more than just the usual two stances on any issue.
For example, when asked about your stance on abortion, if you choose other stances, you get more options other than pro-life and pro-choice. You're given specific stances that aren't that uncommon with some people, such as abortions being banned after the first trimester or pro-choice (even though they might not agree with it), but because it's not their choice or the government's in regards to abortion.
You can also click on the question marks after each question to get more information about the topic so that you have a better understanding and can make a better-educated decision on which stance you agree with.
Personally, I was given a close tie between Bernie Sanders (93%) and Hilary Clinton (92%) as candidates who best represent my ideals. There are about 55 questions to be answered and it will take you more than a couple of minutes to finish.
Although we live in a fast-paced society that wants immediate, quick answers and solutions, I really strongly encourage people to take the time to look into the questions and answer them as accurately as possible. For those who might be relatively younger and new to actually having the right to vote, I strongly recommend taking the time to finish this quiz.
People have fought throughout history to have this right in this country. If you don't vote and then someone you dislike becomes president, you're stuck with that person for four years and you might have made a difference. The worst thing a person could do is not vote because then there's no chance for that voice to be heard.
Take the time to figure out who you want to represent your country.
