    I came out as a "Post Modern", but I mostly didn't agree with any of the "either/or" statements presented - very few of the options represented my opinions and were mostly cartoons of "Left" or "Right" positions. Entertaining for a few moments, but that's about it. :)

    Evil wasn't an option so I'll settle for staunch.

    ...."Staunch Conservative"....

    It looked like some of these "either" questions were a little loaded. JMO....

    I came off as Staunch Conservative but I, like Linda, have an issue with the either\or questions that were asked. I personally was middle of the road on many of them but there was no good choice available to me. The quiz required me to take either a far left or far right stance that did not reflect my true feelings.

    I quit it after the "Good Diplomacy vs Strong Military" question, because, really, what is good diplomacy without a military to back it up? Like TR said "Walk softly and carry a big stick".

    I didn't like that on either. It takes both in the proper measure.

    Yes a few of those questions were like that with me.

    I had the same problem with that one, but also with several others:


    Too much power is concentrated in the hands of a few large companies vs. The largest companies do NOT have too much power

    This one is problematical because the federal government's crony capitalism is creating corporations that are "too big to fail" and end up becoming de-facto federal bureaus of employment and manufacturing. It's not that they corporations are too powerful, it's the unholy alliance between some corporations and the state that creates pockets of destructive power.

    The growing number of newcomers from other countries threatens traditional American customs and values vs. The growing number of newcomers from other countries strengthens American society

    It's both. Illegal immigrants threaten traditional American customs and values, and our failure to expect immigrants to assimilate exacerbates the problem. Legal immigrants who come here to work and become Americans are some of the best citizens that you can find. Badly thought out question, but blurring the distinction between illegal immigrants and legal ones is a leftist trope.

    Religion is a very important part of my life vs. Religion is not that important to me

    I'm not religious, but I'm glad that most Americans are.

    Immigrants today strengthen our country because of their hard work and talents Immigrants today are a burden on our country because they take our jobs, housing and health care

    Same as above. Immigrants who come here to become Americans, to pursue liberty and share in it, strengthen our country. Those who come here for free stuff or who commit crimes are a burden.
