what is my political stripe

i'm using taking a politics test online to find out.

Right now. I'm taking it in another tab and writing about it as I go along. when i'm done i'm not going to edit my comments, even if it makes me look idiotic. It's full of binary type statements with teeny tiny variables thrown in...

Tradition is a reliable guide in deciding what's right
Well, I think tradition is A touchstone, of many, in deciding what is right. They've asked me if it is a reliable guide, not the reliable guide. If I answer agree, does that make me conservative? I respect my elders, and it's important to know what tradition says, did, and why. I'm going with Agree.

The separation of church and state has demoralized our society.

Demoralized? De-MORAL-ized? Well, I believe in the absolute separation of the institutions, but I don't believe in the separation of religious beliefs and politics/political beliefs, which is where the MORAL bit comes in. I'm going for strongly disagree.

So far this is my favorite:
It should be legal for two consenting adults to challenge each other to a duel and fight a Death Match.
Sometimes I wish certain consenting adults would duel to the death, but, alas, I don't actually think it should be legal.
The life of one American is worth the lives of several foreigners.
There was that great episode on The West Wing (the government we should have), where they were discussing this. i think it was Leo who said, "I don't know [why] sir, but it is."

well, let's see, here it comes: on my dial up, it's still coming
and coming.

not quite, just a couple more things...

Damn, I'm a Socialist!
Well it says cut and paste here, so here goes.

And yes, the SATs and GREs made me nuts! I took the Miller's Analogies too b/c it was nice and flexible. Turns out if you go by the Millers, I'm really smart.

You are a

Social Liberal
(80% permissive)

and an...

Economic Liberal
(11% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Socialist

What is it, all my friends taking this test are socialists? I guess that's not so surprising...
