Three Crooked Squirrels: You're 68% conservative, 32% liberal.

Nope.  I'm about 98% liberal.


I got the exact same results, and I'm way more liberal as well.  It's bullshiat that I get docked into conservative land for preferring dogs to cats.

/not that I don't like cats, they're nice
//but I love dogs so much!
 
2014-01-14 06:34:38 PM  
This is stupid. Don't waste your time.
 
2014-01-14 06:35:14 PM  
This test is bullshiat
 
2014-01-14 06:36:52 PM  
Snarcoleptic_Hoosier:
Do I enjoy learning things rather than watching crap get blow-ed to hell on movies? Most likely. Do I occasionally like turning the think-a-majig off and watching giant robots shoot fire at each other? Hell yes.

And, why not both?  Myth Busters, Junkyard Wars, etc are pretty much action/adventure documentaries.

90% Dumb biatch

Nobody ever accused me of being dumb.
 
2014-01-14 06:37:07 PM  
I put a hot dog in a tortilla and ate it. I AM A LIBERAL!
 
2014-01-14 06:40:08 PM  

fusillade762: palladiate: I use Chrome because I'm a web programmer and, frankly, it's just my targeted platform of choice.

I thought that question was kinda odd myself. Are people who don't know what browser they use supposed to be more conservative than Chrome users?


It means you're more likely to be old and undereducated, especially when it comes to technology.

/not that I don't like cats, they're nice

I slightly preferred dogs to cats and got 95% lib.

palladiate: 63% conservative. Probably right, but I find their methodology completely laughable.

Fusion cuisine or no, that's not what makes me want to try a restaurant. The problem is that most fusion is pretty God awful.
Cats are just objectively better than dogs.
Anyone who thinks we could even conceivably live in a world without borders is insane.
Even most liberals are proud of American history, despite the picture of what Republicans like to paint.
I use Chrome because I'm a web programmer and, frankly, it's just my targeted platform of choice.
Action movies are just easier to watch. It's not like I don't love some great documentaries and go seeking them out.
I think kids should question any authority that's questionable. I'm pretty sure the Tea Party thrives on questioning government authority and they're not liberal.


That's because they're testing authoritarianism. The Republican party is basically the Authoritarian Party at this stage. That's why things like what kind of animal you like or what kind of movie you like  could work for this--our political spectrum is becoming Authoritarians and Everyone Else. That's an inborn thing, not a choice or viable set of ideologies, and that's not actually a good thing.

I don't know, but  any magazine that would feature a glowing endorsement of Michelle Bachmann  by Rush Limbaugh is total bullshiat.

They're coffee table right-wing horse shiat.  I know I'm too liberal for them.
 
2014-01-14 06:46:48 PM  
100% awesome

No, it's not real. But it's not that hard to believe, either.
 
2014-01-14 06:48:26 PM  
You're 9% conservative, 91% liberal.
 
2014-01-14 06:48:40 PM  

Dancin_In_Anson: You're 24% conservative, 76% liberal.

Heh.


Holy shiat, me too.

I would not consider myself a liberal.  Not libertarian, nor "independent".

I'm sure as hell not Republican any more.  Not until they start putting up some sane candidates.

I didn't leave the GOP.  The GOP was apparently Raptured by Supply Side Jesus and left me behind.
 
2014-01-14 06:49:12 PM  
You're 74% conservative, 26% liberal.

Really?! I'm usually 50/50.

'You like fusion cuisine
You use a modern browser'


I'm liberal because I'll try fusion cuisine?!
 
2014-01-14 06:52:16 PM  

Parthenogenetic: I would not consider myself a liberal. Not libertarian, nor "independent".


As the Republican party keeps lurching right, it's dragging the line between liberal and conservative with it.

Liberal will eventually mean things like "thinks public roads are okay" and "slightly prefers workplace and food safety standards."
 
2014-01-14 06:58:35 PM  
I got 70% conservative, 30% liberal. Considering I'm hunkered in my Obamacare-proof shelter I'd say that was pretty damn accurate.

/Kidding, that test was BS. Really, I'm more moderatish.
 
2014-01-14 07:01:10 PM  

tfresh: You're 74% conservative, 26% liberal.

Wait, Tex-Mex is "fusion cuisine", right?
 
2014-01-14 07:04:10 PM  

Cyberluddite: 83% liberal.  Seems a bit low.  Usually I get closer to 100% on these things, unless there are questions about guns (which there weren't here), since I'm pretty middle of the road on gun issues.


Guns aren't a liberal-conservative divide. They're an urban-rural divide.
 
2014-01-14 07:05:12 PM  
I'm glad to see I'm sufficiently more liberal than most of you here. I can now revel in the warm smugness of my liberal elitism.
 
2014-01-14 07:05:45 PM  
You're 81% conservative, 19% liberal.

Heh...sure I am...
 
2014-01-14 07:11:50 PM  
Lando Lincoln: You eat enough french food, bam. You will be gay. It's conservative science.

hence FreedomFries
 
2014-01-14 07:12:38 PM  
68% liberal. Does my personality match my politics? Apparently not.
 
2014-01-14 07:12:53 PM  
94% Libtard

Cats are much better than dogs unless you like 5am walks outside in winter to pick up turds and have someone able to stay at home and babysit your pet while you're at work.
 
2014-01-14 07:13:22 PM  
72 percent liberal. Pretty much correct. Just enough to see that reality has a liberal bias, but not so much as to be lumped in with the anti-nuclear, chemophobic crowd.
 
2014-01-14 07:14:20 PM  

Richard C Stanford: tfresh: You're 74% conservative, 26% liberal.

Really?! I'm usually 50/50.

Technically, the Mexican food you can find in Ohio is fusion cuisine.
 
2014-01-14 07:14:40 PM  
Why does this quiz limit me to being only 100% conservative?
 
2014-01-14 07:15:07 PM  
I score as 76% liberal when in reality its closer to 10%.

My in laws, who are righteous conservatives, are dedicated Apple fanatics.  Not sure i believe in the predictive power of this survey.
 
2014-01-14 07:18:40 PM  
Probably not.
I have a few gigs of straight and about 20% Asian girl-on-girl.
What was the question again?
 
2014-01-14 07:31:56 PM  

nmrsnr: 68% liberal.

I had issue with a lot of those questions, and skipped the restaurant one entirely.


Yes, some of the questions really didn't have a good answer, like the New York one. If you've been to the Metropolitan Museum, you've done it. It's a "best of" collection. Time Square is also something that has gotten a little dull. On a trip to New York, I wouldn't go to either because there are better things to do.

You're 37% conservative, 63% liberal.
 
2014-01-14 07:46:47 PM  
Meh, personality test says 52% liberal... in reality, I support socialized medicine, minimum wage hikes of 12-14 an hour, mandatory sick time, mandatory vacation time, free higher education, and a litany of other causes that put me well to the left of the Democrats.

I got 66% Conservative and that probably puts me to the left of the majority of Democrats too and much more to the left than most Republicans in office.
 
2014-01-14 07:51:45 PM  
70% conservative because I like dogs, have a neat desk, would go to time square, and think kids should respect their authority.

WTF
 
2014-01-14 07:55:06 PM  
I'm 72% conservative according to this test.

Oh, like hobo fight club. Or doing lines of coke. Or both.
 
2014-01-14 08:01:52 PM  
Oh wow! A test that asks questions like "Do you do progressive things or conservative things?'.

Hey guess what! You identify with the stuff that exactly defines that term.

You do realize that these tests are not to give you some information about yourself, but to gather information about you that can be placed in a database and mined, right?

I don't think dogs had anything to do with it. I strongly agreed that cats are more likable. I'm 72% conservative.
 
2014-01-14 08:05:35 PM  

FlashHarry: vpb: 14% Conservative

me too


I would never have guessed you were Satan.
 
2014-01-14 08:07:32 PM  

Cletus C.: 73 percent liberal.

Never should have admitted I occasionally like to suck some dick.


A true LOL

HA! That picture is so messed up ... Boner suckling a Cruz teet.
 
2014-01-14 08:13:06 PM  
87% Liberal. Heh. This is a pretty horrible test, though. Many of the questions simply don't make sense in context.
 
2014-01-14 08:13:11 PM  
83% liberal, go me
 
2014-01-14 08:22:38 PM  
You're 17% conservative, 83% liberal.
 
2014-01-14 08:25:23 PM  

firesign: Glockenspiel Hero: Mid 70s liberal according to the stupid poll, and that answer was probably about 20% of the conservative tilt.

What a mid-70s liberal might look like:

You're 78% conservative, 22% liberal.
and yet I am so Liberal I could be the unholy offspring of Jane Fonda and Micheal Moore.
 
2014-01-14 08:34:03 PM  
You're 34% conservative, 66% liberal.

That's news to me....
 
2014-01-14 08:37:06 PM  
26% conservative, 74% liberal.  Interestingly enough I answered more questions with the "conservative" answer but I guess the "liberal" answers were stronger.
 
2014-01-14 08:37:27 PM  

dr_blasto: violentsalvation: My politics are a little more complicated than a gas gauge can represent.

But do you use a modern browser? That is what defines you.


That has to be the dumbest question.
