    Gotta' love a black and white quiz for a world that often contains shades of grey.:eek: On many of these I wanted to take components from BOTH answers.:banghead3: IE...on the abortion question, I would not vote to outlaw it, but it should certainly be discouraged, yet this simplistic quiz doesn't have that option.

    Anyway...flawed as it is, here is the profile it produced.

    A lot of these didn't have the right answer. Like, "The Fed should:" None of the answers were "Not exist in the first place". Or "military action that defies international law is" neither answer was based on the idea that almost all military action, whether or not it defies international law, is not justified. In fact, almost half the questions didn't have a sufficient answer.

    Anyway, this is what I got:

    Wow, a bit higher rating for conservative than I personally view myself, but oh well. It all stems from the money and the crime and punishment arena though. While one question regarding money was a bit difficult for me (the deficit vs helping helpless) I had to go with reducing our debts. In my mind if the government has less debt to worry about and has more money in its "pockets" then it will be able to do more for the people anyway.

    Yeah, and some of the answers are a bit difficult to choose from. Would be better if they had more varied choices. It really isn't so black and white.

    However, I didn't care for this test. In some cases neither answer exactly reflected my opinion; in others, both answers did to some extent. There was no room for nuance at all.

    There were a number of questions where there was no appropriate answer! I came out %95 liberal, and would have been %100 if I had answered the luck question differently.

    All I know is that I consider myself as a socially progressive "liberal", with tinctures of fiscal conservatism, militarism,
    and righteous justice along the errant path...

    I could not answer over a third of the questions as I did not agree with either alternative answer given.
    in most cases the answers were unrelated to the questions.
    At least for a European point of view.

    I do not know what they scored unanswered questions so there is a lot of doubt about my scores.


    Overall: 40% Conservative, 60% Liberal I would say 80% lib

    Social Issues: 25% Conservative, 75% Liberal OK

    Personal Responsibility: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal Ok

    Fiscal Issues: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal Liberal here are like that

    Ethics: 0% Conservative, 100% Liberal OK

    Defense and Crime: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal I did not agree with any of the possible answers.They missed out the obvious...

    Drivel. What moron constructs a poll question like:
    10. # Taxes should be...
    • Cut to stimulate the economy and give people more of their money back.
    • Something the rich pay more of. They can afforded.

    Have you ever seen a Blogthings quiz that *isn't* drivel?

    I consider them no more than amusing things for when the brain is a bit foggy, but not something of any utility.

    The only one I had trouble answering was the death penalty, I haven't figured out where I stand on that yet.

    I agree that this quiz was a bit simplistic. Not all answers are just yes or no.
