I always enjoy taking those quizzes that purport to tell you something about yourself — not to find out who I am, I already know that, but to find out how few others share my views.
So, are you a Steadfast Conservative? A Solid Liberal? Some other stripe? There is a PewResearch Center quiz to fill the bill.
You’ll never guess in which pigeonhole it places me — or maybe you can.
I wonder where Petey fits in.
Steadfast Conservative and proud of it!
And there aren’t that many of these people..10% according to the pigeon holer.
Thanks for the link. According to DePew, I am a “business conservative” whatever the hell that is. Perhaps we need more definition of exactly what a “liberal” and a “conservative” are. I see them pass each other on issues without even nodding to each other.
Ok, I took the quiz. You will be surprised to learn that my views were characterized as “solidly liberal.”
This is much better than those silly quizzes everybody puts out. It labels me as Business Conservative. Several of the items presented options that I had a hard time choosing between: I didn’t completely agree with either choice, but was arable to pick the one I mostly agreed with. I had the most trouble with the environmental questions, for obvious reasons.
So which slot did they plug you into, Mitch? Business Conservative? I won’t hazard a guess about nyp.
With only 10% Business Conservatives, why are there so many of us on this post? To me, it means Rational Conservative.
It may mean we all congregate on Tom’s blog!
They call me a Young Outsider, which puts me right of center. . Must be something wrong with their program.
Nothing is perfect, but I appreciate actually seeing the analysis of the results. Still waiting for Mitch to post his pigeonhole. Lol
Bill, Classical Liberalism once meant free thinking. The study should probably break it down further, to cover Progressives and Leftist Socialists.
“Classical Liberalism once meant free thinking.”
Still does. Just ask a modern liberal…all are free to think what they are told to think….any who insist on expressing thought outside authorized thought are summarilly corralled in “first amendment areas”.
Steve, you’re cracking me up
Shocked, Petey, shocked!
Steadfast Conservative, here, but I think the better label would be classic liberal or libertarian, except for the open borders, which kept me out of the Business Conservative pigeon hole.
I answered solidly against anything open borders, or amnesty. But the result still came back Business Conservative. ???
I could not give a “binary” answer to a number of the questions. For example, there was one question about whether I believe businesses are making a reasonable amount of profit. To a “true” liberal or conservative, that question doesn’t make any sense.
I got a “504 – Gateway Timeout” error after the last question, with no results — story of my life 🙂
After several attempted reloads, I finally got “klepto-republicrat minion of fascist/globalist banksters”. Dang, I’ve been outed!
Winston, you did not say that!
Steadfast conservative, here. Tom, I’ve got something off topic, and I just wonder if you can verify this blog:
All that internet advertising can’t be all for porn sites, can it?
Alan Mutter is well respected and usually accurate in his reporting. I recall seeing that when it was posted and did not doubt it in the least.
If we cannot find a reason to smile or chuckle about things then we have already lost.
