When I think of "conservative" vs "liberal", I think of two different groups of people who have two different set of ideals they intend to impose on me, and I don't like either of those.

I tend to have very much "leave me the fuck alone" values - both socially and economically. I gave answers on social questions that I thought were totally in line with values we generally consider to be liberal. I was a little frustrated especially on the gay marriage question, because on the role of the Feds my opinions is exactly the same as the President's - that the Feds should have no role at all in the matter. Yet - that wasn't one of the choices - it should be legal, or it should not be. Period.

When asked to predict my score I guessed 85. I didn't know what the questions would look like and I expected more straight-forward questions, and that questions like gay marriage and abortion would throw me a little to the liberal camp. I guess not. Or not much, anyway.

My total score was 43. My state's score is 43 My prediction of my score was 45 I've said I was a moderate (Independent) for more than a decade now...

How many here that CLAIM to be Independent got scores this close to 50 I wonder? -----------------------------------------

Environmental and Energy Issues: Liberal (I passed on this, wonder why I got this)

Public and Private Sector Balance: Leans Liberal

Personal Freedoms: Liberal (passed this one too) Role of Government: Moderate Taxes and Economic Issues: Moderate Federal Spending: Moderate Security and Foreign Policy: Leans Liberal Education and Family Services: Leans Conservative Social Policies: Moderate Language, Culture, and Religion: Leans Liberal ---------------------------------

I've never hit more 'pass' answers on a single test before. As a tool, it's like a hammer, not a scalpel.

Funny shit though...

I think the way a lot of the questions were worded seemed like they were forcing us into a mold that we didn't necessarily fit into. They couldn't just simply ask basic questions... they had to go on with a lot of arguments that I didn't really agree with.

I did one of these one time that put you on a 2-dimensional grid rather than a line. The four extremes were liberal, conservative, libertarian, and statist, which I think it's a little more accurate.

Those questions were *mostly* "how should the government make things", rather than questioning whether or not the government should even be doing it in the first place. Big-government was kind of already built-in.

VA,

I remember that question. I think I answered the equivalent of "It's none of the government's business" by selecting the button on the bottom. (take no position / somewhere in between).

The thing is -

It does not seem to allow in many question for more libertarian positions. The abortion question was a great example - as I remember it, the choices were:

Nobody should be forced to be a parent. The government should fund abortion blah blah blah

Abortion is killing an unborn child blah blah blah.

The answer: "It's none of the government's business" was not a choice.
