Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

I think we should all find a small town in central California and all move there. This board is the type of diverse pool of thought and background I want my kids around.

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

I'm a 16 and since I am an admitted bleeding heart liberal, that kinda sets more resolution on the axis for those below 16. (I definitely needed an option of OTHER for some of these questions.)

I was expecting "Are you still beating your spouse?" to be one of the questions...

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

I scored a 14. Seems like there are quite a few 14s.

I started out my teens and 20s as a liberal, then became pretty conservative in my 30s and 40s. Looks like I am headed back to being more liberal in my 50s!

Probably atypical, but I've been stuck in place (politically) for 20 years.
Pretty sure I'm more radical than ever now.

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

I scored 15. The dual axis test (political compass) is a lot better. On that one I scored -1.1/-3.8 -- middle of the road economics, social libertarian.

Agreed. It's been a couple of years since I've seen that test. Anyone have the time to go searching for a link to it, and then post it here? It would sure be on-topic...

34 8)

I guess that makes me a bit conservative.

However I think of myself as more of a Libertarian and an Optimist.

I too think of myself as "more of a Libertarian and an optimist",
but I am cynical to a fault. My ex never quite figured out how you
could be an optimist and a cynic at the same time.

Re: Blue or Red?? Take the test

Hmmmm

I score 10 on the one test. BUT the other puts me in the lonely quadrant with Milton Friedman.

Slightly conflicted? - still a Dem voting left handed INTJ after all these years.

Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh.

Probably headed for old age - grumpy independant curmudgeonism.
