    I always hate evaluations that have loaded questions. I scored a 208 - right down the middle. That's the worst outcome I could imagine!

    LOLOLOL... okay I'm fairly moderate, but this test tells me I'm so progressive I have smaller progressives orbiting me by the sheer mass of my progressiveness. I suppose I did have a lot of "10s" in church and state but by God the Unions only got a 7 or so...

    290/400 ........I usually think the test is TO black or white yes or no. But this one gave me to many options.

    136/400 for me. Evidently I am conservative enough that I am officially a danger to myself and others...

    230 for me

    anybody who gets a score outside of the window (160-247) posted simply starts with the mindset 'I am liberal' or 'I am conservative' and answers most of the questions based on how a 'good liberal' or 'good conservative' would answer the question......in other words, you've been brainwashed

    So everyone should agree with you or if they don't, they're brainwashed?

    Well it's easier to tell how progressive the OP is... it goes in inverse proportion to the STARS IN THE THREAAAAAD!!!! Oh no he struck againnn!!!

    LOL I'm not even going to counter-star it, it's just funny at this point.

    So, are you bragging or complaining?? :confused:

    nope........nothing is that black and white, but the original poster got a 361.......that's 9/10 or 10/10 in the liberal direction for every single question.......you have to try to answer it that way in order to achieve that

    maybe my window was a bit tight.......maybe anything outside of the 200-300 range is brainwashed.......maybe its even higher, but you'd have to be unreasonable that way on many of the questions.......for example question 2: Immigrants are a burden and take american jobs......for Immigrants alone, my answer would be zero (disagree) because its what this country is based on and pretty much everyone has roots to immigrants.....but include Illegal Immigrants, and now the answer is more like a 4-5, and answering it that way does not make a person any less progressive

    question 7: limited government is always better than big government.........adding the 'always' makes it a loaded question......does it make you progressive to put a zero down? nope.......the word always needs to be removed to make the question valid

    some of the questions have nothing to do with being progressive or not, so you would have to think about how a liberal would answer it
