Thread: Political Left/Right Test

    55:45 left. I would consider myself 30:70 right.
    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    Solidly Right-Wing
    30%/70%

    Deep down this is probably right, although I like to think I am more 50/50.

    Damn.

    I have a facebook friend who is outwardly very conservative and is pretty distraught that he got 50/50.

    I thought the questions were a bit bogus, especially since it didn't have an "all of the above" choice for the first question. But my result almost exactly matched what I came up with a month or two back when I looked up Republican vs Democrat beliefs and tried to figure out where I stood.

    This reminds me of the 'We will be great friends if you answer this correctly' questionnaire that you used to post in the Ellis Island when new people introduced themselves. I guess that kind of highlights the fact that we don't get a lot of new intros around here.

    Yeah, I stopped doing those after the last 3 or 4 went unanswered. Part of the fun was in seeing how people would respond to a WTF question.

    He said something like he was going to wait to see if I stick around or not. It's really the only reason I stay here. As soon as he asks me a question I'll probably call it quits.
