Liars and the Worlds Smallest Political Quiz

OK, so Kerry says Bush lied to Congress, and Bush says Kerry is flip-flopping again. Hmmm, this seems to be the first truthful statements out of either of their mouths in weeks.

So I came up with an idea, and using both the Bush and Kerry voting/supporting statements I plugged in their answers, (based on their past records), into the "Worlds Smallest Political Quiz"

The Quiz asks 5 questions regarding two Issue areas, Personal Issues and Economic Issues.

You are asked to answer each question A if you agree, M for Maybe, D if you disagree.)

The Personal Issues questions are :

1. Government should not censor speech, press, media or Internet

2. Military service should be voluntary. There should be no draft

3. There should be no laws regarding sex for consenting adults

4. Repeal laws prohibiting adult possession and use of drugs

5. There should be no National ID card

The Economic questions are:

1. End "corporate welfare." No government handouts to business

2. End government barriers to international free trade

3. Let people control their own retirement; privatize Social Security

4. Replace government welfare with private charity

5. Cut taxes and government spending by 50% or more

Amazingly, (not at all), I got the same basic result for both of them, and here is what it was:

According to your answers, your political philosophy is: Authoritarian Statist

Statists want government to have a great deal of control over individuals and society. They support centralized planning, and often doubt whether liberty and freedom of choice are practical options. At the very bottom of the chart, left-authoritarians are usually called socialists, while right-authoritarians are generally called fascists.

So I guess no matter how you slice it you have two authoritarian statists as the front runners for leader of the free world, but it's OK since the Sheeple got to vote for their poison.
