I try to saty out of the politics threads because it is so painful to see so many of you so wrong in your opinions (smirk) however, I am a sucker for a quiz and got lured into this thread.

Here are my stats and where I stand in relation to the heavy hitters.

I tried it and I'm nearly dead center.

But some question are extremely American (especially those about abortion and/or religion).

And even if I were American, they're particularly pro Christian. I'm an atheist.

I suppose that makes me a nice fat juicy target for Palin's sharpshooters.

I took the original test again and was left of center, libertarian. It was about the same result as before.
I went looking for another test. This one is short and I got the same kind of answer.

I don't think the Advocates quiz is any level of accurate for anything. It's really just trying to control the agenda.

I did take a look at this one.

Again it is biaised.

Because if they ever want to meet the objectives, they need a world government with the power to enforce them.

The questions are quite slanted and heavily loaded, forcing choices between extremes. I doubt any of these tests could pass a more rigorous validity test.
