Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

Hey, I scored a 31. Amazing. That makes me less conservative than
Reagan. I think what skewed the results was my sympathy for environmental issues. This is one area where I kind of coexist
with the libs.

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

Hmm 17, between Bill and Colin, and I plan on supporting McCain, I think my true score should be a little higher, or maybe I'm slipping more liberal....

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

Made a 29. Took it as honestly as I could and made a 29...

And you are correct JG, Carter was clueless. Just awful.

Just watch out for killer rabbits....

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

I don't think this is a good test of liberal vs conservative or even a very good test of Dem vs Rep. If you could take this test and feel like the answers were a legitimate representation of your views, then I think you can conclude that you are fairly simple minded in your political thinking.

This test came up over at the Nofees board a few days ago and I offered my own test. It's simple and you may find it useful:

Here's my own test:

Instructions - Read each of the three questions and write your answers on a sheet of paper. Follow the scoring instructions at the end of the test. Then look up the meaning of your score.

1) Which is harder? red or vacuum?

2) Which do you trust most? apple or cherry blossom?

3) How high is up?




Scoring - Now. Look at your sheet of paper. For each question that you have a written answer, add 1 point to your score. If you numbered your answers add an additional 3 points. If you wrote complete sentence answers, add an additional point for each sentence.

What does it mean -

Score 0 -------- You have a life or at least there is hope for you.
Score 1 - 3 ---- There may be hope for you but you are pretty gullible.
Score 4 - 6 ---- This goes beyond gullibility. You need to get a life.
Score 6 - 9 ---- I'm terribly sorry. It would be best for everyone if you institutionalize yourself right now.

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

I don't have to take a test... I am liberal in that I support women's rights, the right not to be a white male Southern Baptist, and the right marry/date/love whomever you want. I am conservative in that I get sick to my stomach everytime I see another $80billion appropriated for being a military police force, and the freaking federal government trying to take over education. I am a democrat because in my hometown in kentucky, everyone is a democrat, and local elections are generally decided in the primaries, so to be otherwise would mean I'd have no vote.

I think what we really need is to get rid of this ridiculous two-party system.

No. It's the same one you read about in all the newspapers. Just let your imagination play with it for a few seconds

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

Hey, I agree that the test is not rocket science, but it is all in good fun. Haven't you (SG) ever taken a test out of a magazine to see how compatable you are with your mate or something like that?

Ten and a HALF!

And unclemick is a 14 year old girl from missoula.

JG is female and 27. Law clerk at a very liberal NYC firm.

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

Sillysal

Be careful what you wish for - back in the open primary days of yore - David Duke won the Republican primary - a lot in the general crossed and voted for Edwin Edwards - currently a resident of the Federal Pen.

The old saw about FDR's (Franklin Delano) retort when after asking about a Kansas City pol - after being told the guy was a crook - 'I know that - I want to know whether he's our crook or their crook.'

It only takes one hand to vote - the other can be used to hold your nose when appropriate.

Still a Dem - after all these years.

So was my test.* But the analysis from mine is probably more accurate than the original.* *

* Well . . . no.* I have seen those kinds of tests and sometimes started reading them.* But usually I get about 1 or 2 questions in and conclude that the questions are vague, irrelevant, or written in a way to bias your answer, and the answers are too simplistic to capture my views and patterns of thinking.* I guess one of the things that indicates how compatible I am with my mate is that she has even less patience in this type of test than I do.* *

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

SG, as with most thing you say, I agree!

I think those tests are a kind of fun way to pass the time (at the dentist, etc.) though.

I'm still surprised that I rated so low, I put that I didn't trust the gov't to take care of problems and I was against porn, that should have earned some points. Oh Well, Ted Kennedy and I are probably the only ones who chose to tax ourselves.

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

Hmmm... not the greatest test, but whatever:

I cringed at some of the answers I was forced to give, but in the end I like where I ended up:* with a score of 18, right between Colin and Bill.
