Another Political Test

This one put out by the PEW research group so it's a pretty good bet that Ted
Kennedy would be considered middle-of-the-road on this one. There were 3 areas (two actually) Fiscal, social, and combined. For combined I got:
With a pointer just shy of the right end in the "very conservative" area.  Fiscally I got an arrow at the extreme right end.

Daddy Warbucks couldn't have done any better. Socially I scored just to the right of the moderate republican.

Keeping in mind that a moderate republican, according to Pew would be Arlen Specter. Averaging the fiscal and social would put me almost spot on the "average republican, which is probably equivalent to the average Neanderthal in Pew's eyes. They seem to weight the fiscal part about 3 or 4 times the social part. I guess if I'm not willing to waste other peoples money freely, it puts me beyond the pale.

Update: Added link to test. Sorry.

Well, now that is embarrassing. I came up to the right of conservatives overall and on economic issues, and nearly as liberal as "lean [toward] Obama" on the social stuff.

Libertarians are like that. The position is that "You can do what you want as long as you don't do it to me without my consent, or use my money to do it without my consent, and the same rules apply to me."

We are a fun-loving bunch.
