How the Hell... ?

I am:
"Congratulations, you're a swing voter. When they say 'Soccer Mom', they mean you. Every Democratic ad on the TV set was made just for your viewing enjoyment. Don't you feel special?"

Are You A Republican?

I seriously doubt they mean me when they say 'Soccer Mom'.

And I don't vote for anyone who attempts to take away more civil liberties. So that makes me about 5% Republican as of late.

About as likely as me being a "tax and spend liberal". Republican I'm not, but tax and spend ........ they don't know me very well ;-)
that thing is SO wrong.... it said i'm 43% republican and also gave me the "soccer mom" BS. not likely!

I got 7%. Probably about right. I'm all for minimally politicized science research, abortion rights, church/state separation, a financial safety net, gay marriage, disability rights, ending extraordinary rendition, and many other things the Republican party isn't big on.

Now if only the Democrats could be convinced of the good of a few more of those things...
Good lord man, you might as well just declare yourself communist and be done with it.
Does this mean you also don't vote for Democrats?

After all, many Democrats seem to want to take away a person's right to own a gun. It is one of the best civil liberties in existence.
Well now I don't feel so bad since Jane got 43%.

Eric, you're the last person I would describe as "tax-and-spend". And I meant that as a compliment, haha.

Broad Street Hustla gets the "Commenter with the Coolest Name" award. Seriously.
PB, disability rights is something that seems to have taken a backseat since the 90's. I'm not sure why that is. Maybe neither side thinks it will pull in enough votes.
Alcibiades, most Iowa Dems aren't big on gun control. Maybe Senator Tom Harkin is, but I've never voted for him. There are too many gun-owners around here for that opinion to be popular.

I would agree, though, that Kerry probably would have tried to reinstate the Assault Weapons Ban had he won the presidency. And I did vote for him in a moment of weakness. For the office of President, I almost always have to consider who will take away the LEAST amount of civil liberties. That is an unfortunate reality for me.

I do still vote for Republicans with libertarian leanings. I wish there were more of them.
Oh, and one more thing... I've seen some people on other feminist blogs get a NEGATIVE number on this quiz. Feministe was one... can't remember the others.

Now that's some serious leftism!
That quiz is stupid. I don't agree with most of their answers and half the time I'm just choosing something by default.

BTW, 60% "Nascar Dad" here. I don't watch Nascar and I'm not a Dad so go figure.
drumgurl: That's probably a large part of it. I think another issue is visibility. People with cognitive disabilities are often confined to homes or institutions and aren't given much chance to interact with society, so a lot of people are barely aware that they exist, let alone that almost all their choices are taken from them.
get it straight, free market takes individuals freedoms too.Do corporations want a free market ? neah they want profit. The Fact that exists "free market" institutions such as WTO, IMF or WorldBank, only shows that free market, needs to be corrected because it's not perfect.
A 100% free market is a deviated incorrect and unfair market. Where the only law is the law of the jungle. And not all of us are chimps,we need regulations for a better living.
Anyway, i guess if some people believe in god, other can believe in the invisible hand...
And btw,I don't know why are you surprised to be a republican. That's rednecks.
Republicans *tend to* (not always) support corporatism over capitalism. But even if the 42% figure is accurate, that still means less than half of me is a wingnut.

The neo-classical economic model is backed up by mathematics. It's not as if its followers blindly follow some invisible hand theory that merely requires "faith". Does that make the free market perfect? No, and I never said it was. But I have yet to be convinced of a better model.

The new Post-Keynesian model is interesting, and is getting more sophisticated. I am open-minded to it. I was not impressed by the traditional Keynesian theory. I have also studied some Marxism. With no mathematical evidence to support it, Marxism definitely requires faith to believe.
Pretzel, I viewed your profile and see you like "Globalization & its Discontents". That is a very good read. I do not support unethical globalization practices.
Love the quiz. I scored -3%, which apparently means "You're a damn Commie! Where's Tailgunner Joe when we need him?"
I'll take that as a compliment.
Oh, and Tailgunner Joe can kiss my cute little commie-loving Euro ass.
I'm -7%. A damn commie. Heh.
