Apart from a brief flirtation with the Republican Party in college (hey, the Wake Forest of the early 1980’s wasn’t exactly a bastion of liberalism, and Walter Mondale always reminded me of Mr. Rogers), I have always considered myself to be a moderate Democrat. Left-leaning, but sitting on the fence nevertheless. Reasonable, rational, thoughtful, even-keeled, willing to consider all options. Sure, I’ve nearly always voted a straight Democratic ticket, but that’s only because it’s been the reasonable, rational, thoughtful thing to do.
I guess that should have been a hint.
According to this quiz, I’m not only not sitting on the fence that separates liberals from conservatives, I’m nowhere near it. Maybe, if I squint, I can see the fence – way off in the hazy distance somewhere to the right of me.
Hi, I’m Wags, and I’m a Liberal.
Take the quiz. Know thyself. It might confirm what you already know. Or, if you’re like me, you might have your eyes opened just a bit.
Thanks to Democratic Central for the quiz.
