An interesting test

I usually don't do politics on this blog, but I was following some links from Alas, a Blog and came upon this little "What're your politics?" test. I reproduce the results for my quiz, not so much because I think they are accurate (although they likely are) but because I really liked the presentation.

(update: links have been fixed)

You are a

Social Liberal
(78% permissive)

and an...

Economic Liberal
(23% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Strong Democrat

Oddly enough, we're pretty similar. I'm a Social Liberal (71% permissive), and an...Economic Liberal (16% permissive), best described as a Socialist. I, in true Libra fashion, apparently exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness. I also seem to: loc: (81, -125) modscore: (10, 43) raw: (1340), whatever that means!

You are best described as a:
Socialist

You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness. loc: (56, -119) modscore: (11, 39)
raw: (1536)

A couple of the questions - such as #26 regarding the cancer pill - totally stumped me. But it turns out I'm a...

Social Liberal (68% permissive)
and an...
Economic Conservative (60% permissive)

I am best described as a...

Painted Ninja

wait wrong test...

I am best described as a...

Libertarian

"You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness." Is this like the pat on the back for finishing the test?

I wonder if anyone ever gets a sendoff like, "You really don't know right from wrong, and Jiminy Cricket obviously wasn't whispering loudly enough when your conscience was formed. You are a danger to stray pets."

Whatever dudes... you guys are clearly all taking the boring test. Under the dating personality type test, I've been rated "The Loverboy".

Which is way cooler than being a "libertarian" or a "socialist".

I see you urban pink-o's want to give the farm away (so to speak)-I got 60% Econ. Conservative but I like how you think -I got 75% Social Liberal. Described as a Democrat. (I vote mostly Republican - I'm so confused)

"Hey dude, are you ordering pizza with us?"
"Is it free?"
"No it's... no it's not FREE! Free pizza? Yeah I wish."
"You know I only eat free food."
"Ohhh, that's right, I forgot you're a libertarian."
"Right. If the food has a price it's against my beliefs to consume it."
"Gotcha. Well uh... Dumpster's out back."

So am I the only one? The only Arian who believes in Liberty? Is there no one else? Dude I am SO on the wrong blog... (buys a ticket back to Stave It Off)

I find myself in Jon and Courtney's camp:
Social Liberal (83% permissive) and Economic Liberal (10% permissive), and best described as a Socialist (no surprise there). Though I am unsure of what exactly the 'permissive' percentages indicate.

I also took the dating personality test and was rated the "Maid of Honor" (again, no surprise there).

Well, I took that there love test thing, and I'll be danged if it ain't true. I's a: Random Gentle Love Dreamer (RGLDf). I especially like the initials.
