I guess I am still conservative

I would normally not post these self tests on here or my score for that matter. But, as this was a how liberal or conservative are you test and as I scored more liberal than I thought I would, I decided to share it here with you all and give you the link so you can try it for yourself.


Your Political Profile:
Overall: 70% Conservative, 30% Liberal
Social Issues: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal
Personal Responsibility: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal
Fiscal Issues: 25% Conservative, 75% Liberal
Ethics: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal
Defense and Crime: 100% Conservative, 0% Liberal

Just for kicks and grins, i also did some of the other tests, as it turns out, In a past life I was a praying mantis, my pimp name is "Dr. Tickler", my pizza personality is the Everything pizza and my song for 2005 was "Feel Good Inc" by the Gorillaz. All that and 50/50 on politics...damn I'm smooth.

Well I am glad that you all got a little break from the monotony of your day. I thought the quiz could have had some better responses too, but lets be honest it was not all that scientific.
I actually took the How Irish Are You quiz too and came out 13% Irish. Some of the responses were pretty bogus too, but as I am 12.5% or 1/8th, maybe it was not so bogus after all.
And Betmo, my score was dragged down by being 75% fiscally liberal. My political persuasion leans a bit totalitarian.

Yeah, not a good test at all. I wouldnt have answered hardly any of those, but forced myself to pick one on each question and here's what I came up with:
Your Political Profile:
Overall: 30% Conservative, 70% Liberal
Social Issues: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal
Personal Responsibility: 0% Conservative, 100% Liberal
Fiscal Issues: 0% Conservative, 100% Liberal
Ethics: 0% Conservative, 100% Liberal
Defense and Crime: 100% Conservative, 0% Liberal


I'm not 100% on anything and I came out that way onn both ends from this test.....I would love to do a more legit one iof anyone knows of a better one?

Mykiss is pretty liberal except he wants to put all the conservative in prison and throw away the key.

Well that or have them all executed, since those were my only choices.

Pub... 75% fiscal liberal?... are you kidding me? what happened?... did you do the quiz on a butterfly ballot or something?

Truth, I am for more government ownership. If I had my wish the cities would let people who own condemned buildings 30 days to either tear down the building or get the building up to code, or at least show they were in the process of doing so. If the owners did not, the government would be allowed to repossess the building and tear it down to build either government facilities like schools and police stations or into public parks.

hmmm...an interesting juxtaposition of conservatism and liberal idealism...,
Let me ponder on that dicotomy and I'll get back to you.
BTW, you made my first "quadrenial blog review".... it was a slow news day yesterday :)

30% LIBERAL? Eegads! How will you ever sleep tonight?

There's hope for you yet! ;)

QD, I sleep fine knowing that I am not one of the blind following the blind (no shot to you but to those who can’t think for themselves). I don’t have to be all one thing and I wish no one was. I actually would have been more disappointed if I came out 100% conservative because then I would have to question if I really thought for myself or if someone was doing the thinking for me.

I used to be less conservative--before 9/11.

I think as I get older I am becoming less conservative on some issues and more conservative on others. Once I figure out what those issues I am becoming less conservative on though, I will let you all know.

You could be like me - totally addicted to all quizzes. It's sad, really! : )

Here are my results:

Overall: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal

Social Issues: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal

Personal Responsibility: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal

Fiscal Issues: 25% Conservative, 75% Liberal

Ethics: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal

Defense and Crime: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal

My most "conservative" is defense and crime, which is apt. My most "liberal" would be fiscal, which is apt.

Everything else is split down the middle, which is also apt!

Sarah, we actually came out the same on the fiscal issues. Maybe we have more in common than you would hope.

Blogger Sarah said...

Pubilus, I'm sure we do! However, we never get to bring up those issues - one day, we will!

Thu Jun 01, 10:35:00 PM  
Blogger Publius said...

Sarah, what issue is it that you mean? Do tell and I will let you know.

Fri Jun 02, 02:58:00 PM  
Blogger Sarah said...

Go ahead and pick one, and I will definitely let you know : )
