Pekka haavisto would most likely be the first gay president in the world, which would be quite cool
    Really? Both of them are against nuclear power, which is pretty ridiculous. At least you're not voting for any of the crazy nationalists currently in power there.

    Oh, nevermind. I was talking about your parliamentary election where the "True Finns" received 19% of the votes. The talk here in Denmark about the elections had given me the impression that they were now the largest party in parliament.

    Also, I would be understanding of your position on nuclear power if Finland was susceptible to any major natural catastrophes, but since you have the privilege of living in a relatively secure and comfortable location, I see no reason why you should choose coal or natural gas over nuclear power. Renewables are still far too inefficient to be considered as viable alternatives to any of the three aforementioned, if you plan on "shock"-introducing renewable energy. Perhaps if you first established an energy supply network based entirely on nuclear power, and then slowly replaced this with renewable energy.

    Okay.

    But you know nuclear waste isnt fun, especially since they dont seem to be able to dumb it properly and i wouldnt be surpriced if they wouldnt take the quite possible rise of sea level into account with this. Not to mention that there isnt any need for more nuclear power in finland, extra power could be attained from swamps(we got loads of them, but for some reason they arent used to make electricity), solar power and wind power..

    #1: Obama
    #2: Paul
    #3: Huntsman

    Not really surprising. I found it funny that for some questions my personal answer was not even an option.

    Still all Republican candidates. Today's Democrats are like Republicans a couple of decades ago, and the Republicans are a new breed altogether. For all practical purposes, there are no Democrats.

    I voted for Barack before, and if I do again it's pretty much status quo with no change expected and continued favors for the ruling class at the expense of the working class. Ron Paul has great ideas to have the U.S. quit acting like an imperialist country and close down guantanamo bay, which I think he might actually do, but his domestic policies will create a great deal of suffering and decline. Giving more power to the states will make it easier for corporations to control political processes leaving even less power to the individual.

    Most of the other choices appear on the border of mental illness with issues like narcissism and sociopathy, and they communicate as though steeped in stupidity, so it's pretty frustrating.

    Your top candidate match is Ron Paul!
    Jon Huntsman and Michele Bachmann were runner-ups.

    The only one of the bunch (including Obama) who really says/does anything I'd agree with is Ron Paul. However, his domestic policies, if inacted, would be tragic. So although I'll give him credit for at least being honest about foreign policy realities, I could never vote for him. By default, my vote will be going to Obama -- although like most left-leaning people, I've been disappointed with him.

    Really? I'd prefer to vote for Bernie Sanders.

    It's a simple fun fact that Norris endorses Newt. Don't get too hung up on it.

    And yes, as much as it annoys me, people are still telling Chuck Norris jokes in certain spheres.
