Sitting on the fence

,,,,,but I tend to lean a lot.

I've been blog strolling a little this evening and while over at John's place I clicked over to another blogger's entry link to see the rest of the story and I began to feel as though I was one of those Liberals they were speaking about so, just to be sure, I googled up the defination of liberal and found this:

broad: showing or characterized by broad-mindedness;
"tolerant of his opponent's opinions"
"generous and broad sympathies"
"a broad political stance"
having political or social views favoring reform and progress tolerant of change; not bound by authoritarianism, orthodoxy, or tradition a person who favors a political philosophy of progress and reform and the protection of civil liberties

Then, as I scrolled through the liberal sites I stumbled upon a liberal test and decided to see if I really am a liberal since the above defination doesn't sound so bad to me.

Your Political Profile

Overall: 40% Conservative, 60% Liberal

Social Issues: 75% Conservative, 25% Liberal

Personal Responsibility: 25% Conservative, 75% Liberal

Fiscal Issues: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal

Ethics: 0% Conservative, 100% Liberal

Defense and Crime: 50% Conservative, 50% Liberal

I reckon it just proves that I'm a kind person who sits on the fence and checks things out before climbing over to step ass deep into anything. I only form strong opinions about things I actually KNOW all the facts about.

What do you think?

Considering all that's been going on in D.C. lately, I'd bet your real proud of that Ethics: 0% Conservative, 100% Liberal!

I think you and I probably think a lot alike, I'm just more 'openly opinionated' than you are. In other words I have a big mouth.

I think you are like many of us who are deemed "Liberal" (as if that is such a bad word, sheesh). Kind, compassionate, caring about your fellow man, humble, thoughtful enough to want to see all sides of an issue.
I'm proud to say I'm liberal!

I took the test; overall 270% conservative; 330% liberal. Who knew? Not I, until now. :)

Sounds the right way to do things, Brenda!

I think the test is overly simplistic. I found myself in between on almost all of the answers. Having said that, Miss Brenda, welcome to the Dark Side. I scored almost 100% liberal in almost every category. You're in good company.

I took the test... I didn't like any of the answers on most questions... what does that make me?
