Well, it seems that Fred Thompson has released his immigration plans. They sound good. Then again, most of the people running for president right now are saying all sorts of things they don't really mean, support, or have ever done before. I don't know enough yet about Thompson to support him. Of course, I don't know enough about him yet to oppose him, either.
Then again, if immigration is your single issue, Tom Tancredo is the only way to go. Seriously. No one can beat Tom on immigration. Duncan Hunter is right there with Tancredo. Ron Paul's got great long-term solutions to immigration. Rudy McRomney all support amnesty and no international borders at all. Take your pick.
ABC News (D) has up a quiz to "help" you decide your candidate. It's pretty bad. Admittedly, you can only have so many options in a multiple choice test, but still, the questions are VERY slanted. For example, one says, "What is the best way the federal government can get more people covered by health insurance?" There's no answer for "The federal government should shut up and get out of all associations with health insurance, including any and all regulation of insurance at all."
I still ended up with Ron Paul #1, Tom Tancredo #2, and Duncan Hunter #3. Well, those are the three I certainly support the most at this time (even if I did disagree with them on this quiz a whole bunch).
This is scary accurate:
I've taken these tests before, and I've ended up INTJ before. Heck, in the blogrolls listings here, there's an INTJ blogroll even. But this page listed a few quotes about the personality of an INTJ -- and they're just dead-on accurate for me. So, for those who want more information about me, here you go:
"To outsiders, INTJs may appear to project an aura of "definiteness", of self-confidence. This self-confidence, sometimes mistaken for simple arrogance by the less decisive, is actually of a very specific rather than a general nature; its source lies in the specialized knowledge systems that most INTJs start building at an early age. When it comes to their own areas of expertise -- and INTJs can have several -- they will be able to tell you almost immediately whether or not they can help you, and if so, how."
I'm often told that I'm arrogant and I understand it's self-confidence. And if you want help in areas where I'm good, I do know right away whether I can help you or if you should head somewhere else. Working in computers, I get lots and lots of questions all the time that I respond to very quickly.
"INTJs are natural leaders, although they usually choose to remain in the background until they see a real need to take over the lead. When they are in leadership roles, they are quite effective, because they are able to objectively see the reality of a situation, and are adaptable enough to change things which aren't working well. They are the supreme strategists - always scanning available ideas and concepts and weighing them against their current strategy, to plan for every conceivable contingency. "
I can't count how many times people have told me that I'm a good leader -- despite how much I really don't WANT to be a leader. And this is why I am often asked and told to get more into politics -- because despite me not wanting to be an elected official, people see that I would be very good at it.

Ah, who knows if I've done this one before? They're fun, and sometimes accurate. This one seems about right.

Now that quiz is just scary accurate. I actually HAVE played T&T! (And I'm betting there will be no one who reads this who even knows what that is...)
