I'll bet you'd be surprised to know I came out 40% conservative and only 60% liberal on that test, which sounds pretty moderate to me still, unless moderates don't exist. I saw a longer, more detailed and more insightful test somewhere months ago. It was broken down into social and economic issues, and liberal, slightly left of center, moderate, slightly right of center, and conservative. My score?
Social issues - Slightly left
Economic issues - Moderate

Paul Mitchell said...

yep, you are just a tad to the left of me, Erik. Notice my scores?

Imara said...

Two Dogs, I refuse to believe that you're 1,000,000% Conservative. 1,000,000%?? You have to have a soft spot for humanity in there somewhere.

Paul Mitchell said...

Imara, ONLY conservatives care about people, Liberals try to move toward Socialism which has only killed like 20 million people this past century. Conservatives=Freedom

Doesn't sound like a recipe for "slavery" to me!

Paul Mitchell said...

Imara, let's think about this. Nazism/Liberal, Communism/Liberal, Federalism/Liberal, Fascism/Liberal. What part of these things are so hard to understand? Every Liberal government has led towards slavery and death. Why can y'all not understand that?

Liberal programs: Social Security, Welfare, Federal Schools, Nationalized Health Care, why can't y'all understand that there has been 0% success with what you believe in? Why keep doing the same things over and over and expecting different results? That is why I say Liberalism=Stupidity because Leftists never learn from their mistakes and it happens every time they decide something is a good idea.

Let's put it in the simplest terms possible. The Democrat Party has figured out that their ideas are idiotic, that is why they never come up with anything anymore. The only thing the Democrats say is that Bush is stupid and his policies don't work, even when they are proven wrong every single time without fail. Seems pretty simple to me.

Imara said...

>The only thing the Democrats say is that Bush is stupid and his policies don't work

Well let's see...

No Child Left Behind- underfunded, and doesn't work. Too many teachers are forced to "teach to the test", and the students are not really learning the skills needed to succeed and compete in the real world. Tests by the way that can only be properly prepared for by test prep software owned by Neil BUSH! Hmmm...

Health Care- More Americans are under-insured or not insured at all since Bush took office. The cost of health care has risen to almost 15% of our national ecomony. The Republican controlled House and Senate have no comprehensible plan to address this issue.

Unemployment and Wages-Unemployment is up overall since Bush took office from 4.0% in January 2000 to 5.2% in April 2005. The average annual salary is down, and more families than ever before since the Great Depression, have been forced to file for backruptcy due to the high increase in the cost of living. Lack of health care and loss of employment being the major factors.

Veterans Benefits- Although the death benefits were recently increased, other much needed, benefits have been cut or even eliminated. What thanks our brave men and women get for fighting for this country.

Terrorism- Terrorism statistics actually show a steady increase in recorded incidents since 2002.

All of these things are happening under a Republican controlled country.

Two Dogs, I could go on and on, but I think you know where I'm coming from. I happen to think beyond my own selfish needs and I'm concerned about my neighbors. I want EVERYONE to prosper. It seems like Republicans are only concerned with themselves. We were not all blessed with the same good fortunes in life. It's our responsibility to look out for one another. I just don't see where Republicans are doing that across the board for EVERYONE.

Imara said...

^And these are not things that the Dems are "saying", they are FACTS!

Erik Grow said...

Score one for Imara!!!

Paul Mitchell said...

Before we head off on a tangent here, let's look at the "facts" Imara has presented. No Child Left Behind is actually one of the worst Bills ever to come through Congress. Not only is it unconstitutional, it is bad policy. Oh, and Teddy Kennedy was the sponsor. Need I say more.

Health care is not an issue for the Federal government, it is socialism, a Liberal Red Herring. Intelligent people do not want the Fed involved.

The unemployment statistics are false that are stated above. Unemployment is at its lowest point since 1984. Oh and Reagan was President then. Never in Bill Clinton tenure did unemployment get lower than it is now. Check the stats, not your heart. And I have already addressed the salary issue with statistics in another post, your feelings again are wrong.

On the Veteran's benefits, again, you are wrong. I know that it seems like a good thing to say, but facts do not support your feelings.

Where in the Hell have terrorists struck since 9-11? I'm sorry that just doesn't make sense. Again, your feelings are wrong.

Imara, I could go on and on as well, but it would be nice to argue against facts. I can't keep up with what Democrats are feeling these days.

And Erik, score is Two Dogs 1,000,000; Imara 0.

Erik Grow said...

Well, at least nobody can accuse you of being fair and balanced. *snicker*

Paul Mitchell said...

Erik, again and again, you fail to get any point. Imara at least tried to come up with something that made sense.

Imara said...

First off Two Dog, facts are undisputable truths- where is there room to argue? Just because you don't agree with the FACTS that I've presented doesn't make them untrue.

The unemployment numbers I quoted came from the U.S. Department of Labor website.  Unlike you, I don't do a cursory google search and go with the first numbers I come across.

Bush jumped up on a soapbox THREE DAYS after taking office yelling at anyone who would listen about No Child Left Behind.  He ran in 2000 on reforming the education system, i.e. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND! Remember? Or were you not paying attention? Yes, Kennedy sponsored the bill after he was promised it would be fully funded. He later came back and said it was a good plan, but UNDERFUNDED, so therefore, it wouldn't work. How stupid of Teddy! You should never trust a Republican to keep his word.

Well, there's a hell of a lot of "Liberals" posing as "Republicans" because SEVERAL Republicans came forward to say they would NOT support any of the proposed cuts to the Veterans Budget.  John McCann was just drug over hot coals for not openly speaking out against these cuts. Where have you been?

The Bush administration had to retrack a statement recently where they stated terrorist attacks were down around the world as a result of the "War on Terror".  As a matter of fact, the Pentagon decided to scrap the whole damn reporting system altogether, because they didn't like the way the numbers looked. That's is... when it makes you look bad, just get rid of it!

If health care is not a Fed issue, then they should keep their grubby, greedy paws out of Medicare! If they would stop pandering to the insurance industry, maybe health care would be more affordable, and everyone would be able to seek the proper medical attention when it's needed. See, that way, those poor people's medical issues won't drive up the cost of my health care. Good Lord.

Imara- 1,000,000 Two Dogs- 10  

Paul Mitchell said...

Imara, on the unemployment numbers, I posted the graph/numbers from the Dept of Labor over a month ago. At that time they posted the numbers throughout Clinton's entire rape through the White House. The lowest numbers posted during those eight years was 5.2 back in 1994. He never went lower unless there has been some adjusting of numbers that far back.

Again, I will say that good men do things that are bad. No Child Left Behind is NOT Constitutional. Please find anything in the Constitution about funding Public schools other than 16th section land. Keep your Federal Government outta my State schools. No Child Left Behind is unconstitutional, how many times do I need to say that?

Yes, Imara, unlike the Democrat Party, Republicans embrace all kinds. Try any of the Republicans from the Northeast, all Socialists.

As far as the terrorism is concerned, I would beg to differ on your interpretation of numbers. I do not remember one terrorist attack in this country unless you count the shooting in LAX. So, I would say that Bush's War on Terror is very successful. If you want to place blame for the increased attacks around the world, if that IS the case, I would place blame on the appeasement crowd.

Imara, healthcare is not a Federal issue. Find healthcare in the Constitution. You know that large corporations are not the problem with any costs involved, even a most cursory look inward would tell you that it has to do with John Edwards and his ilk channeling little girl's souls and other courtroom grandstanding.

And furthermore, if there was an actual emergency and you needed a doctor, they will serve you at any emergency room. However, people have begun to use the ER as a place to get a cold treated. I thought you were a nurse, you should keep abreast of things like this.

Score is still TD-1,000,000 Imara-oh hell Imara is scoring 'cause she's using her head for something other than separating her ears. Let's give her, uh, 5 points. But, that's better than anyone else can do.

Soundboyz, I noticed that, too!!

Imara said...

Two Dogs, Two Dogs, Two Dogs!!

Here is the site with the unemployment numbers:
Click on the green dinosour and you will see the chart that clearly shows the precentage for the last 10 years! You really must stop believing everything your read in that "right-wing manual".

The reason why people are coming into the ER to seek treatment for everyday illnesses is because they don't have health insurance! They simply can't afford to go to the doctor, like you and I. When they seek treatment in the ER, that drives up the cost! Trust me, malpractice lawsuits only account for about 1% of healthcare costs. It's the greedy corporations (ie: hospitals, medical supply companies, insurance companies...) that account for the majority of expenses.

You have worn me out! I just can't argue with you anymore. It's obvious that we will never agree on certain political issues. I still like ya, though, dispite your political shortcomings. :)

Paul Mitchell said...

Imara, I don't have time to research the numbers right now, I do have that posted about a month ago.

I do not believe that second statement of yours though. People with insurance go to the ER as much if not more. They do not have to mess with much paperwork then. There is such a small percentage of people without coverage, it just doesn't even merit a discussion. And if you think that 1% figure, you need your head examined.

Imara, I always enjoy the banter between you and your lesser half. Absolutely no hard feelings from me at all.

Imara said...

LMAO!!! Yes, Two Dogs, some people go to the ER with insurance, but most don't have coverage.

Two Dogs, like wise on the banter tip. You should check out my new post. I linked to a special site, especially for you and Soundboyz. Enjoy! But don't hurt yourself.

Imara said...

Oh, by the way... I took your little test, and I'm 50% Conservative 50% Liberal.


Paul Mitchell said...

Oh, great a moderate.

Imara said...

>Oh, great a moderate.

Yeah, baby!

Basil said...

Moderate? Every time I hear that word and see/read someone proud to be a moderate, I'm reminded of the line from 1964: "Moderation in pursuit of freedom is no virtue."

Paul Mitchell said...

Thanks for playing, basil. You sure look young in your profile picture. Does your mama know where you are or are all of those sisters looking after you?

Wayne World said...

Basil, why don't you go watch Romper Room or something youngin'!!!!!!

Every reasonable human being should be a moderate Socialist.
