I am a proud dissident!

Your positions and beliefs are the mainstream.....
You're a 'dissident' because your stated views are the mainstream/majority? :confused:

Oh, this is getting interesting, so far the Dems are in the majority, I think that bodes well for the election in '08.:up:
Or maybe some folks are just so put off by the questions and blatant pandering/assumptions/generalizations/hyperbole (take your pick) that they didn't bother to respond.

But hey, don't let me stop you (this was after all, a fun quiz for liberals)

Have a great day. :)

cheers,

Roy (who generally dislikes labels and pigeonholes)

Your score is 4 on a scale of 1 to 10. You are a moderate Republican. You agree with Republicans more often than not, but have misgivings about some of their hard-line positions, as well as the direction they are leading the country. You remain supportive for now, but if Republicans keep lurching to the right and taking their cues from religious fanatics and belligerent neocons, you may decide to jump off that crazy train.

I am a moderate and coming to terms with that! LOL

Your score is 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. You are a moderate. You agree with Democrats on some issues and Republicans on others, while rejecting the blind, naked partisanship of both sides. You base your vote on issues rather than ideology and principle rather than party, which makes you the quintessential swing voter the media loves to fawn over.

Or maybe, most Republicans decided not to take a pole to see if they are die hard Democrats. Just like a Democrat to make assumptions. :down:Don't count your chickens before they are hatched. :nono:

This is true, sorry if it is biased toward Democrats, I will try to find a Republican quiz to be fair and balanced. It is supposed to be FUN, tongue in cheek.

inglein, I read today that ~56% of Americans are Democrats and 30 something percentage are Republicans. The left over percent are Independents.

I'm going to start a new political party - Common Sense.

I would be interested in where you read it. We all know the media is biased toward the Democrats.

i think that the evidence if anything goes the other direction.....

there was a media bias thread a few weeks ago...

here is a link to a study that shows that cspan tilts very rightwards in its coverage...

tilting rightward: c-span's coverage of think tanks

december 2007, juan antonio montecino and mark weisbrot

this study’s main finding is that c-span coverage of think tanks overwhelmingly favors conservative think tanks while left-of-center think tanks are under-represented. in 2006, conservative think tanks received 43.76 percent of total think tank coverage. conservative/ libertarian and centrist think tanks received 6.94 percent and 31.76 percent respectively. center-left and progressive think tanks, on the other hand, only received 12.73 percent and 4.86 percent respectively. thus, the combined conservative and conservative/libertarian think tanks got an absolute majority of 50.7 percent representation on c-span. everything left of center got only 17.59 percent, just one third of the coverage received by the right.

c-span’s coverage of think tanks suggests it has failed to fulfill its mission to provide “a balanced presentation of points of view.” a review of recent polls also suggests that c-span’s coverage of think tanks is not only off-balance in absolute numerical terms but also relative to public opinion in a wide range of political issues.
