The Politics Test: very interesting

Well, I've always identified as a democrat, but haven't always agreed with the Democrats (and there is a difference quite often). Ideally, for me, the Democratic party would align with democratic ideals, but that seems to happen less and less often, with more and more politicians selling out to the highest bidder (cynicism, much?) and leaving the majority of the people who voted for them in the dust.

You are a

Social Liberal
(76% permissive)

and an...

Economic Liberal
(23% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Strong Democrat

  1. Apparently, I'm a socialist.
    "You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness."

    Also, you know, social conservatives also have a "very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong", they just have a different view of what those are. Something tells me it's a twee bit biased towards the socially liberal ideals of fairness and a just society.

  2. I think a lot of what determines where one falls on the scale is whether you agree or strongly agree on certain questions, and disagree or strongly disagree on others. I don't have a lot of things that I strongly agree or disagree with, so that could be why it says I'm a Democrat (I prefer democrat).
    The things I feel strongly about have mostly to do with personal autonomy. I can see areas of gray when it comes to society, but I still think personal autonomy trumps society in most areas.

  3. "Apparently, I'm a socialist.
    "You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness."

    Meaning that someone who is completely the opposite of socialist (say, libertarian) has no sense of right, wrong, or fairness? Not too biased lol.

    I've taken so many of those things - we'll see lol.

  4. I'm beginning to think it tells the same thing to everyone, no matter where you fall on the scale. Everyone has a well-developed sense of right and wrong, it's just that not all of those senses of right and wrong match exactly from person to person. So, while there are areas of agreement between them all, there are also a lot of areas of disagreement. Which is not to say that only one of them is the only way to think/act/be, but that we may have to compromise in order to accomplish very much of anything.
    The hard part is deciding where one is willing to compromise, and where one has to draw the line and say "Beyond this, I will not go."

  5. Greetings!

    If you don't mind, I'd like to beg for your consideration of a shameless plug for my new company for big and tall people called "Big & Tall Travel", which can be found at

    I'm a big guy myself and understand how uncomfortable travel can be for large or tall people and with my 20 years of experience, I wanted to provide a fun, sensitive, personal service for others like me. I would appreciate a mention on your site if not just publishing this entry.

    Many thanks!!
