Well, What Do You Know!

I'm a centrist!

My husband's cousin sent me a link to the "World's Smallest Political Quiz." This man is usually responsible for sending me very funny, if slightly off-color, jokes, so I went into this thinking that the punchline was going to be quite different. Turns out, it's for real.

I'm not overly surprised by my score, though I think some of my friends might be (particularly HamRadio, who believes I'm the most Lefty Humanist he knows). Frankly, I kind of like being in the middle. It gives me more options.

Took the test. Came down VERY SRONGLY Libertarian.

REALLY, Claudia! Gee (she says, with more than a hint of sarcasm...) I never would have guessed!

The Divine Ms. P took the test and emailed me back - she's on the intersection of the 60 line for personal issues and the 30 line for economic - her email title was "Almost a Leftie!"

Husband took the quiz, too, and said "I'm on the upper left corner of centrist."

It would be interesting to see how people answered the individual questions...

That's funny, I heard you like being on top! :)

I scored as a Libertarian, way up at the top and slightly to the right. This surprised me, because I usually think of my self as a Republican. Shocking for a prospective teacher, huh?

Watch it, Falcon - don't start something here that I WILL finish!

My WICKED Republican friend, HamRadio, took the test and emailed me this:

"I'm and I both came out as Centrist....that's another reason why I think the result is BS"

I emailed him back to say that maybe it's NOT B.S. - there's got to be SOME reason we like each other so well...

I was going to say that I thought that HamRadio's view of you says a ton more about him than about you.

I scored over there near your husband.

And, while the test isn't bull, it's only what, 5 questions, so the results are going to be pretty broad. Love it, though!

I scored on the 60 (personal issues)/40 (economic issues) lines. Centrist too (which makes sense) but slightly to your left, which surprised me.

And really, it can't be any more inaccurate than any of the labels the media/society put on people. At least we have some input for this one....

I'm a stone cold natural leftist liberal who happens to have dropped out of the stone cold lame Democratic Party. I'm a freelance lefty gun for hire.
