*censored*, I'm a left leaning libertarian, almost the same point on the graph as Gandhi. If anyone sees a little fat guy with a shaved head in a gown and sandals wandering around NEPA smack him in the back of the head. It may be me. :)

A little on the right for me. I don't know why, since I'm left-handed. toothy

Most of the questions are loaded toward proving that most people are left leaning.

Useless quiz.

I am right, but close to Hitler! :lol: I have no desire to gas anyone .... at least not in the immediate future.. :woot:

I would have to agree with Franco b on this one. WTF does art have to do with anything??? :? :?:



EDIT: I forgot ... art places are where all the treehuggers are found.

Hmmmm........ I think I'll take the RD for a spin today! :devil: :twisted: toothy

Right!

As soon as I saw the wording of the first question I passed on it.

But it does illustrate how "poll results" are wholly unreliable without seeing the questions that were asked.

I could produce a poll that would prove 100% of the population kills small animals.

Q: Are you still clubbing baby seals?

1) Yes
2) No

I'm in the upper right quadrant, closer to the center than I would have thought though...

Now about those baby seals...

Forgot to grab my results but you and I are very much aligned according to this test. I lean just a little to the right of you. It's funny as we usually clash idea-wise on most topics. Who'd a thunk? ;)

Almost identical to yours, a hint to the left and a tad closer to center on the up and down.

I am a lot less right wing than I thought- according to that questionairre. I sent it to my left wing buddy- he came out Ghandi. Big mistake. Now he sent me (and everybody on his email list) an email about how he is volunteering for some Obama thing. "C'mon comrades let's pitch in what did we vote for him for???"
I wrote back and said why don't you volunteer to paint your house for your mom like you have been talking about for three years. He's a college kid, freakin brainwashed.
