Liberal Pinko

A nice oversimplification of some complex issues.

At least two-thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity: idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political ideas.

I don't usually take the time to play along, but I was curious about The Political Gauge.

My Political Gauge
My Political Gauge

On Non-Fiscal Issues, you rank as a Strong Liberal (9). On Fiscal Issues, you rank as a Strong Liberal (4).

I wonder which choices made my scores so high? :-)

Interesting. I'd really like to understand the scoring system, I'd certainly pegged myself differently than it did.

I didn't notice one before closing the page, but a look at the responses would be really interesting, if there isn't one there.

On Non-Fiscal Issues, you rank as a centrist (48). On Fiscal Issues, you rank as a centrist (43).
