Seven Presidential Candidates

Posted Tuesday, October 14, 2008, at 1:47 AM

Sometimes when making decisions you have to be creative. Based upon three unorthodox methodologies, here are the basic characteristics of some of the presidential candidates in the November election.

Personality type is one of 79 categories based on the characterology of a person's first name. Astrology relies on a person's date and time of birth. Numerology defines traits based on a numerical conversion of a person's full name (the first number within the parenthesis is the basic character, followed by their subconscious desire).

The following are candidates for the office of President of the United States in 2008, listed randomly by osmosis.

LIBERTARIAN PARTY -- Robert Laurence (Bob) Barr, Jr.

Platform: Less government, more individual freedom, a free economy, an end to the war on drugs

Personality type: Cavalier Prophet -- Open-minded, self-confident, strong emotions, self-control

Astrology: Scorpio (11/5/48) -- Resourceful, loyal, dynamic, unyielding

Numerology: (2, 3) -- Tactful diplomat with affection for others


Platform: Balanced budget, reduce national debt, oppose free trade, term limits for Congress

Personality type: Reigning Presence -- Spontaneous, strong-willed, private, emotional, king of the castle

Astrology: Unknown (X/X/25) -- age 83

Numerology: (9, 1) -- Humanitarian with a desire for independence


Platform: Nurture economic interests, a strong military to police the world

Personality type: Warrior Monk -- Intelligent, demanding, stubborn, thinks he's smarter than everyone else

Astrology: Virgo (9/29/36) -- Observant, reliable, inflexible, cold

Numerology: (6, 3) -- Protector with affection for others


Platform: Consumer protectionism, reduce corporate influence in government, environmentalism

Personality type: Generous Heart -- Very active, nervous, independent, belligerent, irritable

Astrology: Pisces (2/27/34) -- Compassionate, devoted, oversensitive, insecure

Numerology: (7, 8) -- Deep thinker seeking wisdom and perfection

DEMOCRATIC PARTY -- Barack Hussein Obama II

Platform: Tax & spend on social engineering, large government will solve all problems

Personality type: The Grasper -- Desire for power and influence, self-assertive stubbornness, controlling

Astrology: Leo (8/4/61) -- Confident, ambitious, pretentious, vain

Numerology: (1, 9) -- Individualist with a desire for philanthropy

GREEN PARTY -- Cynthia McKinney

Platform: Protect the environment, promote social justice, nonviolent resistance, anti-corporate

Personality type: Dazzling Seductress -- Idealistic, expressive, goal-oriented, materialistic, inner conflicts

Astrology: Pisces (3/17/55) -- Compassionate, devoted, oversensitive, insecure

Numerology: (3, 4) -- Expressive speaker with tenacity of purpose


Platform: Repeal the income tax, oppose abortion, state's rights, nonintervention in foreign affairs

Personality type: Tenacious Champion -- Self-control, melancholy, cold, not moved by the plights of others

Astrology: Taurus (5/3/52) -- Persistent, patient, stubborn, self-indulging

Numerology: (4, 6) -- Practical builder with a desire to give advice to others

Name characterology, astrology and numerology may not be a very scientific approach for choosing a leader but it's probably better than believing empty campaign promises or going along with the voting herd.

We live in a hostile world governed by imperfect people trying to guide an imperfect populace through an uncertain future. Choosing an imperfect person to guide us through the uncertain future is an opportunity that only comes along every four years.

And there are plenty of imperfect candidates to choose from.
