Are you a Conservative? Take the test!

I think that there is a misconception out there that all Conservatives are right wing religious wing-nuts. I suggest that, while there are going to be extremists in every realm of the political spectrum, that ultimately the majority of people both left and right fall far closer together than you would think. Here is a quick test from theadvocate.com to help you figure out where you fall.

On that same thought process, check out the article “Too Conservative For Canada?” from 24 Hours Vancouver Edition by Bill Tieleman. Some rather interesting commentary on the supposed liberal political viewpoint of US President-Elect Barack Obama. Food for thought.

    Nice interesting test Marc. Grad to see someone who can hold an intelligent thought in their head running. Good luck to you!

    Thanks Kristie. I thought it might be interesting for people to really get a feel for what “Conservative” is, rather than taking the rare examples of right wing extremists that get overblown in the popular media and using that label for all conservatives.

  3. Thanks for the reference to my 24 hours column Marc – your readers can also not only find it on my blog at the address above but comment as well – and it’s a lively debate!

    Bill no doubt it will be interesting to see how it plays out. After spending several years in the US following their issues through the elections of 2000 and 2004, it does seem pretty clear that the US Democratic party, is in fact quite conservative in many respects.

  5. Cool Test!

    Its very accurate!

    How are the chickens doing on your flooring?

  6. PS..

    Do I fail the test if I’m not a Conservative?

    🙂

    Hi Mike,

    Pretty interesting little ditty isn’t it? There is no failing when you get involved, we can even still be friends!

    PS. The chickens are well. It was a little bit surreal actually.
