What a surprise.

 

I don't need a test to label me. I am liberal in regards to financial and social issues. Let no man pass a law that prohibits my freedom of speech or expression. In other words no one has the right to shove their religious dogma down my throat by making laws to prohibit free speech and free expression as long as I am not hurting someone else. Drugs should be legal. Let the dumb asses do drugs all they want. Give it away so they won't break into my house or hold me up in the street for a fix. They have done this successfully in Portugal.

 

As for financial status I don't mind giving to those who have nothing. I can't take it with me. People should give at least 10% of their income to the needy. No one can inherit wealth and the rich can give it all to charity when they die. Trust fund babies are the worst people I have ever met.

 

If you think the poor are getting rich by gaming the system and getting a free ride on your dime then you have to fix the problem and not starve them to death or withhold basic services from them. Can you really just walk by the homeless and say "get a job?" Many need mental health services and many served our country in wars. If so, you can you are a heartless, soulless being. Congratulations you will go far. 

 

Religion should be banned from political action, but free to practice their beliefs no matter how stupid they are to the rest of us. Unless they want to give up their tax free status.

The general argument over why churches do not pay taxes goes like this: If there is a separation of church and state, then the state (or fed) has no right to collect money from the church. In exchange, churches cannot use their clout to influence politics.

 

What many Americans assume is that wealth equals hard work. Nothing could be further from the truth. Some of the richest people in the world don't work at all and live in luxury. Most of the poorest work their asses off and die with nothing to show for it. Having ambition does not equivocate with good behavior. Some of the most ambitious people are real donkeys. Just look at Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Both a perfect example of what is wrong with America.

 

John Lennon said it best in "A Working Class Hero" and he was a rich prick.

 
As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
 
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so ♥♥♥♥ing crazy you can't follow their rules
 
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty-odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
 
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still ♥♥♥♥ing peasants as far as I can see
 
There's room at the top they're telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
 
A working class hero is something to be

 

He was a great artist and taken from us far too soon by an ambitious moron who could hold a gun and wanted to be famous. Dylan Roof is another of many Americans who should not have had access to firearms. Not everyone has the right to own a gun because they are breathing.

Jennifer,

Why should I not be allowed to bequeath my wealth to my children. I work for my personal interests and not society as a whole/the government.

My apologies to everyone. I was just on a roll. Of course give your money to your kids. They deserve it as much as anyone. I don't see giving money to your kids as a good thing. I never appreciated anything I was given, but I appreciated everything I earned. My Dad taught me that. It's like the old saying "give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime." Thanks for pointing out my error.

Where your Personal score meets your Economic score on the grid below is your political philosophy.  Based on the above score, you are a Libertarian-Leaning Conservative .

 

 

Personal Score 35%   Economic Score 97%  
 

 

Does this qualify me for the fairway fanclub? :huh:

Why the nastiness?  :(

 

I think it's because of your Social Score of 3 and your age, Fairway. Hard-Core Conservative and 11... that sounds terrible. There should be laws against that ;)!!

 

Listen, in my country they tell you that you vote left at young age because you vote with your heart. Then you get old and you vote right because of your wisdom. You seem to totally skip the "doing good for the world"-part and are at age 11 already at the "it's just me, myself and I"-part.

 

I myself think you haven't been filling the form in properly, Fairway, as you come across a very friendly person. Meaning: social, not socialist. So how do you end up at a score of 3 out of 100 is a mystery to me. Don't you want everybody to have a good time, and not just your peers?

I myself turn into a right winger. I am wearing my aluhead ever so often these days. 

 

I won't be filling in all these forms. I know what to vote in March. And I'm not seeing my party listed anywhere. It wasn't in the general US elections either. You didn't even know who I was talking about when I mentioned Jill Stein and Gary Johnson, Fairway!

 

So my vote is with the Green party, which mistakenly is called left wing in my country. All our neighbouring parties have it correct: in the UK it are the Greens, in Belgium it's Groen! and in Germany Die Grunen. My leader ("Jesse we can") had made a big issue out of it to change our name accordingly. Just Groen. A lot of rightwingers want to vote such a party. They've started to call themselves "Green Right".

 

Anyway, I'm not buying your nasty score, Fairway. I think you're a nice, social person. Ofcourse with your conservative values. But I think you better vote more with your heart these days, and turn into a rightwinger at old age, like me ;)!

Calling someone "nasty" is a Trump thing. He frequently referred to Clinton as that nasty woman. I was being a bit obvious in my sarcasm, but I did not intend to be hurtful. I wish you could have found something else in my long comment to reply to. Sometimes I just can't help myself, but as the adage goes "if you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all."

FYI I did look at the survey and I don't like the questions. I think some of the wealth must be redistributed to keep the people from rising up and killing those who have means. Our egos tell us that success is based on good choices rather than luck. When in fact many people do the same things as the rich, but end up poor. You have to learn how to smile as you kill if you want to be like the folks on the hill.

 

Many of the wealthy now hide behind gated communities in the suburbs and in high rises in the cities. The average America might use an Uber, but they have limo or hire a car service. Seems like a lot of people believe that protecting the wealth of the few means they will be able to keep theirs when they hit the jackpot. They are delusional as most people never leave the social circles they are born into. This means there is very little upward mobility. Does anyone believe that during this past 40 years the distribution of income hasn't been skewed toward the wealthy? So they vote for Trump because he doesn't apologize for his misogyny and racist viewpoints. I think he could have gone to 5th avenue and shot someone and they still would have voted for him. They share his opinion. What does that say about Americans who voted for him? 

 

He will drain the swamp in DC. Yeah right. Don't hold you breath. The only wealth Donald Trump is concerned with is his own.
