Wow. Who'd have thought I would be farther left than Leon?


I don't like the way some of these questions are worded. That and the fact that there's no "no opinion" option.

Like this one:

"Taxpayers should not be expected to prop up any theatres or museums that cannot survive on a commercial basis."

Well...no they shouldn't be expected to but that doesn't mean that it cannot be asked. I'm also assuming that they mean through taxation but it doesn't seem to specify (unless I missed it).

What was surprising to me is where Obama is on that..

I hadn't scrolled down that far yet. That is surprising.

I am almost the Dalai Lama!

Do you find it interesting that nobody is "Right/Libertarian?"

Ron Paul probably is. Here are a few from the 2012 election.

That actually seems hilarious. Look how close Obama and Romney are.

The quiz is biased in the the sense that many will answer "how they think something should be" as opposed to "how you would actually react."

The funny thing is I guarantee almost everyone who genuinely takes the quiz will have similar results in this thread.

Ask the quiz a different way, where you answer how you actually would react as opposed to asking questions where you have time to think how you would like to react and the map would be quite different.

I'm not surprised. Just because extremists righties think he is far left doesn't make it so. He is pretty moderate to even a little right leaning.

The way I did it was to save the image as a file, then use a photosharing site to get a code. Like www.tinypic.com . I'm sure there are easier ways to do it, but I'm not exactly computer savvy. I don't even have one.

I don't quite follow you on the difference.

Yes, that was my same thought.

That and probably the placement on there isn't as slight as it looks in scale.
