If I had to guess, I'd say it was the "Certain people shouldn't be allowed to reproduce" question. Every day I see things on the news that lead me to believe parenting licenses might not be a bad idea.

Heh. I agreed with that one too. I felt badly about it, but I do agree. Some people are just shitty parents by any standard.

Yeah, I didn't feel too badly about it. Either pass the parenting test or get sentenced to take care of a puppy for a year, then take the test again.

Maybe I answered some questions neutrally that would have put me in the libertarian side of the spectrum otherwise.

Noooooo! Keep the chickens away! Make them love and care for a lizard.


message 11: by Dan (new)

Dan Schwent (akagunslinger) How about a skunk? If they can love and care for a skunk, I'd say they could easily handle a kid.

message 13: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Wow! A lot of us are in that lower left quad. Hmmmmmm ....

So far, anyway.

RA? What about you? I mean not that it matters.


message 14: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) The point about raising a chicken is valid. It is impossible to get a chicken to do anything with punishment. Only positive reinforcement works!

I'm in awe of Nools' political orientation.





message 18: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Another thing to put on the list ....

We welcome diversity.




message 25: by Sandi (new)

Sandi (sandikal) I got about 1/2 way through the first page and quit taking the test. I thought it was pretty flawed because so many of the questions were slanted, especially the immigration questions. In my mind, there is a huge difference between legal and illegal immigrants and this test makes no differentiation.


message 26: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments KD - did you actually use the words Wango Tango or mention the Great White Buffalo?

"Above the canyon wall....."


message 27: by Sandi (new)

Sandi (sandikal) I think my problem is that there are certain issues that have become political that really should be social issues and the government should keep their hands off. I'm also a huge supporter of the Bill of Rights, so even though I personally think racist speech is abhorrent and guns are dangerous, I do not want the government making laws against hate speech or gun ownership. If the government takes away rights that I don't really care about, what's to stop them from taking away the rights I do care about?

I guess I'm a libertarian.


message 28: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I guess we'll never know, Sandi.


message 29: by Sandi (new)

Sandi (sandikal) Actually, I don't need a test to know that I'm libertarian. I just want the government to butt out.


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

I came out as almost hitting the middle.

If I new how to post the result I would.



message 31: by Nuri (new)

Nuri (nools) | 538 comments Jim: Underneath the image result, there's a section in a text box you can copy&paste labeled "Post your compass to a forum or profile." If you've gotten down to the Foreign/Cultural policy bit, you've scrolled too far.


message 32: by Sally, la reina (new)

Sally (mrsnolte) | 17320 comments Mod
Huh. I wonder how much we know about each other by determining if we are libertarian or *scrolls up to check what the other one is* or authoritarian.


Whose government is authoritarian by nature? China? Switzerland? Canada? Spain?

message 39: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments yeah, you are sighting in a little low and two the left. about a half click on both adjustment screws should get you to the center


message 40: by RandomAnthony (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments At what are we aiming? Beer cans? Shooting gallery characters? Should I aim at the feet so people will dance like in an old western?

I might need a shot of bourbon to steady my nerves.


message 42: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments hey, i might be drunk. look how i spelled "to" in my comment. sally will love that.

great idea RA. i love the "i better dance or get my big toe shot" groove. i would totally do the River Dance if that ever happened to me.


message 43: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments is that the questionnaire you take prior to leading a military coup?


message 44: by RandomAnthony (last edited Aug 04, 2009 05:58AM) (new)

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments I want to see Kevin do the River Dance. In fact, I think everyone in TC should all line up and we could all do the River Dance together. Pass that bourbon around, Dan...
