    I should have copied the chart it, the star was in the Conservative Part, but far up and very close to the Libertarian part.

    I took one of those psych test once and on of the questions it asked: would you rather live on a deserted island? or would you rather live amongst 250 leapers? I choose a deserted Island and failed that part of the test for being a recluse :lol::lol:

    Tests can be spun any way the tester/writer wants it to go :eusa_whistle:

    Apparently I am a fascist who likes pina coladas, poetry and making love in the rain.

    I am also a centrist.
    Too lazy to post my results.
    My star was in the grey, but toward the liberal.

    This survey is biased to the extreme.

    Seriously, its worthless except as a tool of propaganda

    I actually think if you take the time to look at the questions and critically answer the most honest you can, you might see differently. I have no agenda to make thing slant to the right or an extreme. I don't propose the test being without flaws.

    I suggest you think about what the questions are really doing. Look beyond the obvious. I laugh when I see where the questions are loaded in ways people like you fail to see because of knee jerk reactions...knee jerk reactions some would say are extreme. :eusa_whistle:

    Some of the possible answers were a bit wonky.

    1.) libertarian: 72.0%

    2.) conservative: 24.3%

    (I thought the Libertarian answer for #2 was a bit wonky for example.)

    3.) libertarian: 45.5%

    4.) libertarian: 48.8%

    5.) libertarian: 65.4%

    6.) conservative: 12.3%

    7.) conservative: 27.3%

    8.) conservative: 15.0%

    9.) liberal: 8.8%

    10.) liberal: 8.0%

    So:

    4 Libertarian Answers

    4 Conservative Answers

    2 Liberal Answers.

    Uh, wow. I've certainly changed if this is accurate. :lol:

    Edit: It said I'm a Libertarian with a lean towards the Conservative side though not on it.
