ER has turned fully liberal

Time for another political check. This is the first time, I think I've ever come up straight "Liberal." It's been "Conservative Democrat."


Based on your answers to the questionnaire, you most closely resemble survey respondents within the Liberal typology group. This does not mean that you necessarily fit every group characteristic or agree with the group on all issues.

Liberals represent 17 percent of the American public, and 19 percent of registered voters.

Basic Description

This group has nearly doubled in proportion since 1999, Liberals now comprise the largest share of Democrats and is the single largest of the nine Typology groups. They are the most opposed to an assertive foreign policy, the most secular, and take the most liberal views on social issues such as homosexuality, abortion, and censorship. They differ from other Democratic groups in that they are strongly pro-environment and pro-immigration, issues which are more controversial among Conservative and Disadvantaged Democrats.

Defining Values

Strongest preference for diplomacy over use of military force. Pro-choice, supportive of gay marriage and strongly favor environmental protection. Low participation in religious activities. Most sympathetic of any group to immigrants as well as labor unions, and most opposed to the anti-terrorism Patriot Act.

Take the (slightly dated) test.


"ER has turned fully liberal"

I'd say the "test" fails validation.
Congratulations and welcome to my world. I don't need to take the test. I know I'd come out as a liberal. I'm wondering if you know why your results changed.

Next I think you should try the belief-o-matic quiz at that tells you which religion you should be.
Me, too. Dang it. I wanted to be a bit further to the left. . .
the3rddegree, I'd say I've become more opposed to war in general because of its misuse in Iraq, and the twin of that: diplomacy first, during, after and always.

The "gay marriage" phenomenon, among other things, has made me see that issue and homosexual rights as fundamental questions of liberty.

And knee-jerk reactions to illegal immigration have caused me to see those people as people first, not statistics or competitors for jobs, etc.

In other words, the right wing, fro all its efforts, has made me more liberal.
Yeesh. Re: "I'd say I've become more opposed to war in general because of its misuse in Iraq, and the twin of that: diplomacy first, during, after and always."

I mean, the disdain with which the GOP holds diplomacy has caused me to recommit to it.
Welcome, she said with an evil grin.

(And what the heck! I lost your rss feed and thought you'd plum quit the blog thing or something.)
Heavens to Betsy no. Blogging is life. :-)
