Playing Politics

No matter what some people (not to name my ex-husband in particular) say, I really am not ultra-conservative. I get the whole "If you disagree with me, you are evil" thing from both (or apparently all) ends of the political spectrum. Yay me.

Socialist

You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.


That puts me smack dab in the middle of the lower right corner, right on the dividing line these guys put between "Democrat" and "Socialist". That jives pretty well with other tests of this nature I've taken, but makes me doubt they actually designed it "for Americans" as they claim. In my experience, most Americans fall into either the crazy "Democrats are Socialists" camp or the willfully ignorant "only evil extremists are Socialists". I've met very few Americans with a rational view (meaning mine, of course) on socialism.

I guess how I think people perceive socialists makes me sensetive to the label: "What! You're a socialist!? I can't believe anything you say now. It's all going to be crazy s**t trying to brainwash me!" Not that I think the test is entirely incorrect to label me a socialist, but I'm really not. Not every day. It kinda' depends on the news that morning.

I'm still skeptical of my libertarian label. Maybe I got carried away with the idea of "stupid people should die and/or be taxed more heavily."

Ah, well.

Yeah, you should stop giving honest answers. :-P Not.

I have no idea who I supposedly am similar to on the famous people thing, but it looks like I'm in Donald Trump's armpit and just missed being a libertarian.

The only thing that disturbs me more is getting cast as a likely Kerry voter (hell no, no freakin' way!!!)
