      suffice it to say, many of their questions were flawed. I am still largely satisfied with my result. And YOURS. :P

        Why would you be largely satisfied with my result?

          It was a snarky way of saying “I think you are a socialist.” Since I don’t think socialism is a good thing, it was also a minor insult, but only from my point of view.
          I AM NOT REALLY MEAN I JUST SEEM THAT WAY ON THE INTERNET.

            I am not a socialist!

            I may have some (very few) personal opinions that could be considered socialist but I also know that they could not be realized in the real world. I believe I have a lot of distrust in human nature that wouldn’t allow me to be a libertarian OR a socialist.

            Also, I don’t know that my wanting the censorship of Air Bud could be considered part of the socialist mindset. I think your word for me was “fascist”.

            I tend to viscerally disagree with most Republicans these days and I don’t like the ideas of anarchy, capitalism, totalitarianism, or communisim. So that leaves me with being a centrist or a Democrat and I’m thinking I lean closer to Democrat.

            P.S. I know you are a mean person in real life!

              I meant to put fascism into that list of ideas I don’t like. That was an unfortunate oversight on my part. :D

              “Also, I don’t know that my wanting the censorship of Air Bud could be considered part of the socialist mindset”

              socialists are huge on censorship. the WORST place to be an artist is in a socialist country. socialist govt = the will of the collective, right? so if govt doesnt like what youre saying, then its the will of the ppl that you not be allowed to say it.

    I got basically same as you josh. yes, many of the questions were poor, in that they did not distinguish between an issue as personal preference and what you feel should be govt policy. they skirted any abortion questions, but I personally am pro-life, but politically pro-choice. so if they asked
    “Is abortion wrong?” Id have to agree
    but if they asked
    “should abortion be illegal?” Id disagree
    I could be a cranky old man who doesnt like kids named Sunshine and keeps the wife on a short leash, but hates the meddling guvmint much, much more.

    that said, I actually like this test A LOT. as you can see from your other respondants, it still captures the gist of a person’s political landmarks. as much as Id like to have a test that I could honestly answer and get 100%/100%, this is pretty good. some of the questions were pretty creative at isolating the key variables. for example:
    “It should be legal for two consenting adults to challenge each other to a duel and fight a Death Match”
    I like this one bc it goes directly to the reducto absurdum your faced w once you establish yourself in the position of ‘anything goes if everyone agrees’
    “I should be able to sell my vote for cash if I feel like it”
    great point! I bet very few ppl have ever had this possibilty cross their mind as something remotely worth considering
