    Here's an off site quiz that scores your politics and ranks them.


    According to the test, I'm a "Jack Kemp" conservative.

    The toughest questions IMO:
    Which do you trust more?
    Union leaders or Business executives?
    Professional athletes or Team owners?

    Have fun and report back with your results here.

    Ha! The quiz said that 0 points is 100% liberal and 40 points is 100% conservative.

    I have always considered myself a moderate and I said to myself, "I probably get somewhere around a 20".

    I scored a 24!!!

    I am inbetween Colin Powell and George Bush Sr.

    Fun quiz. There were several questions that I did not fully agree or disagree with.

    I received 22. The test was very interesting. I also agree that I didn't fully agree with several of the questions and could only choose the one I most agree with.

    HMMMMMM...Colin Powell and Geroge Bush Sr :laugh:

    I scored 30. The results say I'm a "Jack Kempf" Conservative.

    To me this is funny, since I've always respected and admired Ronald Reagan and his views and policies.

    I wonder how many are true 100% Conservative or 100% Liberal?

    I scored a 27. I'm smack between GHW Bush and Jack Kemp.

    That does not really surprise me. I'm more of a traditional, southern conservative than a died in the wool libertarian conservative.

    38 for me.

    But I'd be a card-carrying libertarian if not for the drug issue, abortion, and 1-2 other things...so it's about right.

    Well, I'm up there between Bob Dole and Ronald Reagan. I'm guessin' that makes me pretty conservative. :tongue3:

    Although, there were some questions I just answered like number 14. Are the US interests more seriously at stake in Haiti than in Korea? I don't know?

    mmm ... I really didn't think the questions were conservative.

    Did not ask if America was founded as a Christian nation.

    Did not ask if abortion was a sin. Did not ask about right to keep and bear arms. Did not ask if deviant sexual behavior should be outlawed. Did not ask about nuking the opposition. Did not ask about the death penalty.

    Did not ask about outlawing drugs or narco-terrorists.

    Did not ask about executing traitors that gave technology to the Chinese . . .

    I couldn't take the quiz because it gives you two choices on everything, and I couldn't pick either one to trust on many of them. I worked 35 years for the government, and one thing I learned is you can't trust them. I trust politicians as far as I can throw an elephant.

    Me? I just tho't that it was written by a liberal making a token effort to give the 'conservative' a chance to voice what they think.

    But, it was way liberal IMHO.

    A conservative POV is supposed to be that we should not pay for abortion?

    We should eliminate that evil from this country - anything other option is liberal IMHO.

    I scored a 28...which put me as more liberal than Dole...but I always disliked Dole for being more of a "big goverment" type of politician.

    I'm not sure this quiz was very scientific.

    Of course, I now see that I could have increased my score if I had said that the media was dominated by Liberals. But I was thinking that for the most part, the media is not dominated by idealists of any sort. Its dominated by big business, and that means, they'll print what sells...no matter what. Just look at the many faces of Fox. So there, I'm more conservative than the conservative answer. :BangHead:

    OK, know I'm doing the quiz from an Australian perspective, and as others have said, some aren't yes/no answers, But I scored ...

    16 ...

    Does that mean that members of this board will petition against my being able to enter the USA?

    Regards..
    Bob

    I scored 16 too. Does that mean that non-American English-speaking Christians are more librul than the Americans?
