Glassbooth is one of many websites that help voters choose the right candidate for them. Glassbooth is different in that it asks the user to weight the importance of a set of issues then asks question based on the important issues. After weighing the issues, you are asked how strongly you support or oppose certain statements based on current issues. After the short questionnaire, you are presented with a candidate who’s beliefs match yours. Glassbooth also shows why they’ve chosen the particular candidate as well as the stats for the other candidates it didn’t pick.

Try it out for yourself. Visit www.glassbooth.org. Just keep in mind that every once in a while, politicians lie to voters to get in, then betray them. Once in a while.

From: (CNN) — If you’re lying awake at night, feeling angry or fatigued, because of stress, you’re in the majority, according to a nationwide report released Tuesday.

Anxieties about the economy are not only affecting Wall Street, but also 8 out of 10 Americans.

Anxieties about the economy are not only affecting Wall Street, but also 8 out of 10 Americans.

As many as 80 percent of Americans are stressed about their personal finances and the economy, according to the annual survey conducted by the American Psychological Association.

Top sources of stress in previous years were personal finances, work and issues related to raising children, said Dr. Katherine Nordal, the association’s executive director for professional practice.

“This year, the jump was marked in that the No. 1 concern is both money and the economy,” she said. “In my 30 years of experience, in the past, this was not the thing that would be high in complaint lists. Most people are driven to counseling because of relationship problems with marriage and children, depression and anxiety. But what we’re seeing today is that the economy and finances are viewed as significantly more stressful, by more than 8 out of 10 Americans.”
