85% liberal 15% con (because I'm ambivalent about the death penalty and I think immigration is f'd [interestingly, every liberal I know thinks the same; don't know any of these "let them all in" folk])

Also, the solution offered to fixing social security was lame; there are much better ways. In fact, a lot of our current problems could be easily fixed but people just don't know the solutions--they've never been presented because they are too politically unpopular. Basically, it would involve bucking the status quo and the status isn't about to be bucked anytime soon. November will be interesting. The center-left scored big wins in 2006 and 2008. Unfortunately, though there aren't any Republicans that act like Democrats, there are enough Democrats that act like Republicans. However, if things continue trending left in 2010 we could see some push back against the status quo, but I doubt that, too, because President Obama has shown that he's every bit the corporatist-whore that the entire Republican-whore party is.




They should have asked this; I was asked this on the street just a few hours ago as I was approaching my house.

Can you help a pregnant homeless woman?

I see homeless people everyday single day just a few hundred feet from my front door, but I've never before heard that one. I've seen homeless people with children--people who once lived with dignity but are now out on the street--but this woman had been homeless much longer than she had been pregnant.

Now that I think about it, the "let everyone in" crowd is the conservatives. I seriously doubt the people who devised this have a clue.

One of the luxuries of being a conservative is that you don't even have to understand your own ideology. In other words, you can be told that a conservative view is liberal and you'll go all piss and vinegar over it simply because you've been told by your party that it's liberal. Your party doesn't think much of its low information constituents.  ;-()

upshot: The further you live from a major metropolitan center, the more SCAIRT  :scared:  of everything you are (Boo!) and conservative you'll be.


Next survey.

Less than 50% of the questions provided an answer I would support 100%.


Upshot:  In the event of a major catastrophe, urbanites have a less than 1% chance of surviving more than 2 weeks.

Counterpoint: That's hilarious that you critters even bother thinking about that kind of crap  :rofl_2:  While we're living our lives carefree, you can't and won't stop worrying about us and our safety. Seriously, for people who don't want others interfering in their lives, get up outta my face podunk America! No body is coming to get you.  ;-()

By chance, I am just now reading a book "The Rational Optimist" by Matt Ridley
p189, he argues " Rural self-sufficiency is a romantic mirage. Urban opportunity is what people want. ....It is a measure of economic progress that more than half the population can leave subsistence and seek the possibilities of a life based on the collective brain instead."
 ://
Goes along with what I guess is my cautious liberalism as exposed by the questionnaire.

Alas, a Timothy McVeigh sympathizer outs himself! How many of you are there here? Two, three? (We know who you are.)  ;-()

Anyway, TimothyMcVeighForever (TMF), monster and I are having a discussion about regionalism. There's nothing uniquely podunk about Ruby Ridge. You can find crazy motherf**kers on the lamb who'd much sooner murder their family than turn themselves in in big metro centers, too.

But thank you for playing!

I don't know much about them, I don't know what left is or conservative is.
I've been told I'm a liberal but don't know what that is either.
One of these days I'll look it up though.

Wow - you sure like to jump to conclusions babble! That's some nifty reasoning, saying I'm a McVeigh supporter because I don't like how the ATF handled Ruby Ridge and Waco. Do you think the government did the right thing in those cases? Do you implicitly trust government?
