Are you a liberal?

 

My score as follows:

 

Where Do You Fit? My Results

 

See what others like you think...

 

"Enterpriser"

 

Based on your answers to the questionnaire, you most closely resemble survey respondents within the Enterpriser typology group. This does not mean that you necessarily fit every group characteristic or agree with the group on all issues.

 

Enterprisers represent 9 percent of the American public, and 10 percent of registered voters.

 

Basic Description

As in previous studies conducted in 1987, 1994 and 1999, this extremely partisan Republican group’s politics are driven by a belief in the free enterprise system and social values that reflect a conservative agenda. Enterprisers are also the strongest backers of an assertive foreign policy, which includes nearly unanimous support for the war in Iraq and strong support for such anti-terrorism efforts as the Patriot Act.

 

Defining Values

Assertive on foreign policy and patriotic; anti-regulation and pro-business; very little support for government help to the poor; strong belief that individuals are responsible for their own well being. Conservative on social issues such as gay marriage, but not much more religious than the nation as a whole. Very satisfied with personal financial situation.

 

Who They Are

Predominantly white (91%), male (76%) and financially well-off (62% have household incomes of at least $50,000, compared with 40% nationwide). Nearly half (46%) have a college degree, and 77% are married. Nearly a quarter (23%) are themselves military veterans. Only 10% are under age 30.

 

Lifestyle Notes

59% report having a gun in their homes; 53% trade stocks and bonds in the stock market, and 30% are small business owners – all of which are the highest percentages among typology groups. 48% attend church weekly; 36% attend bible study or prayer group meetings.

 

2004 Election

Bush 92%, Kerry 1%. Bush’s most reliable supporters (just 4% of Enterprisers did not vote)

 

Party ID

81% Republican, 18% Independent/No Preference, 1% Democrat (98% Rep/LeanRep)

 

Media Use

Enterprisers follow news about government and politics more closely than any other group, and exhibit the most knowledge about world affairs. The Fox News Channel is their primary source of news (46% cite it as a main source) followed by newspapers (42%) radio (31%) and the internet (26%).

I was considered upbeat.  However they didn't have  certain questions like, Capital Punishment, Draft dodgers, Formation of Homo Island, or anything race related (other than imigrants.

:P ...I think this kind of thinking is bass ackwards and pisses me off.'Pigeon holing' does NOTHING to improve the process of the thought process,aka use of the cerebrum. I resist the notion that  categorizing oneself first as this or that is healthy in the operational mode of being human.Instead I maintain that careful consideration of facts leads discovery of more facts,and ultimatelty to the conclusion that allowing labels to define one's position is damn idiotic.

My own position on issues depends on the issue deing discussed ...and HELLO!..changes from time to time as more facts are brought to light.

My observation at present is that there seems to be great effort in preventing many facts from coming to light.Denial and ignorance are very powerful forces to overcome..and require enormous courage in the face of the powers of vested interests.The passage of time and aquistion of wisdom based in loss,changes thinking.

A quote of Lincoln comes to mind..'you can fool some of the people all of the time,and you can fool all of the people some of the time,but you can't fool all of the people all of the time..'

If I'm reading ''bullshit'' between the lines, I agree.

:P ..Allan Watts wrote several books many years ago,that cut through the bullshit.My favorite is "In my own way".

Language,he proposed,was more developed by our race to decieve than communicate.One need only observe the animal kingdom to understand the validity of this concept,and compare how our president's cleverness,arrogance and ignorance of the factions historically taking one another's blood ,have made a mess of the situation in the middle east.

The leadership of FDR,Truman,Eisenhower and JFK impressed me ,especially in their measured and cogent use of the war power at our nation's disposal.I'm of the opinion the attempt at impeaching Clinton in this damned Democrat vs Republican crap, did not serve our country at all...instead it served the up and coming new crop of political thugs now running for cover as the shit of their watch keeps getting deeper.Funny how having is not the same as wanting after awhile,especially when the jig is up.

I distinctly remember gasoline at $0.99/gal and trillion dollar surpluses....guess that required changing.

Interestingly ,the British labeled American patriots as 'insurgents' in the struggle for our independence...

and France was our ally.

I agree that labeling for party membership is bullshit! I dont like to be labeled either , I am conservative , however, I se all angles before I make a decision! I dont dislike you because your a falming liberal (just change the name to liberal / Flamining means something else)!

 

I dont believe the process of impeaching the president was correct either , it was based more on what other people didnt like about Clinton! Now, the sad part is that I know several people who committed perjury and served prison sentences for that act, the president should not be above the law! Clinton committed perjury and did not serve a day!

 

The reason I posted this is because there was a abel make post on Libertarian! I was a libertarian at one time , but became disillusioned at there policies , in other words does the term "wishy-washy" mean anything to you guys!

 

I wish our system was a "party" based system , vote for the people that get the job done is what I say , I believe if you run for president and your a republican/democrat than your vice president must be your opposite (party) , to keep you on your toes ! Imagine how many Independents would start running and winning!

And who would've thought, me... naahhh...

 

Conservative Democrat

 

Based on your answers to the questionnaire, you most closely resemble survey respondents within the Conservative Democrat typology group. This does not mean that you necessarily fit every group characteristic or agree with the group on all issues.

 

Conservative Democrats represent 14 percent of the American public, and 15 percent of registered voters.

 

Basic Description

Conservative Democrats’ religious orientation and conservative views on many social and political issues set this group apart from the other Democratic-leaning groups, Liberals and Disadvantaged Democrats. Conservative Democrats’ views are moderate with respect to key policy issues such as foreign policy, regulation of the environment and the role of government in providing a social safety net. Their neutrality on assistance to the poor is linked, at least in part, to their belief in personal responsibility.

 

Defining Values

Less extreme on moral beliefs than core Republican groups, but most oppose gay marriage and the acceptance of homosexuality, and support a more active role for government in protecting morality. No more conservative than the national average on other social issues such as abortion and stem-cell research. Most oppose the war in Iraq, but views of America’s overall foreign policy are mixed and they are less opposed to Bush’s assertive stance than are other Democratic groups.

 

Who They Are

Older women and blacks make up a sizeable proportion of this group (27% and 30%, respectively). Somewhat less educated and poorer than the nation overall. Allegiance to the Democratic Party is quite strong (51% describe themselves as “strong” Democrats) but fully 85% describe themselves as either conservative or moderate ideologically.

 

Lifestyle Notes

46% attend church at least once a week, 44% attend Bible study or prayer group meetings, a third (34%) have a gun in their house.

 

2004 Election

Bush 14%, Kerry 65%.

 

Party ID

89% Democrat, 11% Independent/No Preference, 0% Republican,(98% Dem/Lean Dem)

 

Media Use

Emphasis on traditional providers as main news sources: newspapers (50%) and network TV news (42%).

 

Note: All descriptions and percentages are based on the national sample of adults surveyed by telephone in December.

 

In the overall typology there is a ninth group called “Bystanders” who are defined as adults who are not registered, who do not follow news about government and public affairs, and who say they rarely or never vote.

Hey EG...damn if I can remember what they call these, you can get these at any Home & Garden Shop... Those little organe flowers that look like a very small carnation...you find them in Mixed Flower Pots etc.. Someone here probably is a plant expert and will come up with a name.?!

 

Out here in Kali, farmers plant rows and rows of these to keep Pest's away from their crops...that is all I can remember right now...wish I had the name...

I wish our system was a "party" based system , vote for the people that get the job done is what I say , I believe if you run for president and your a republican/democrat than your vice president must be your opposite (party) , to keep you on your toes ! Imagine how many Independents would start running and winning!

Other than the fact we are unorganized, give me an example of a wishy-washy Libertarian.  ???

The good thing is Libertarians answer there own questions!

then you just need to say unorganized. Wishy-Washy is more of a term you would use for undecisive or unreliable. You can rely on the Libertarian philosophy-it hasn't changed much in the few years we've been around (unlike the dramatic change of democrats and republicans) , including the fact that we live in a parodoxical philosophy in that we need to organize to change the government, but no good Libertarian wants to be affiliated with the government. Very much a conundrum, actually. that's not wishy-washy...wishy washy is when a republican says they woon't raise taxes, then raise taxes. wishy washy is when a democrat says they're not a socialist, but want more government control over your personal spending, or your property. sorry, both parties fail the wishy-washy test.
