Political objectives test

Well folks, we made it to another Friday, and a new month. For the two readers of my blogs, they may have noticed that blogging over at The Gypsy Librarian fell off last month. Work has been busy for one, extremely so. And two, to be honest, librarianship has not been too exciting; it seems the blogs in that sector pretty much rehash the same thing, so I have been tuning a lot of them out to be perfectly honest. Add to that the fact the political climate is just not good, which adds to my general malaise, and it is a miracle I have been blogging at all. Anyhow, since we are in political season, with the election about a month away, here is the Friday quiz. This one was not too bad in terms of the result I got. While it may paint me as a bit more permissive than I usually view myself as, overall, not bad. For instance, while I do support private enterprise, I do support regulation as well. That some folks still think we should just let the markets do what they will without any oversight after the current debacle is just plain wrong. But I digress. Anyhow, have a good Friday folks. And with the new month, I hope we can get back to a more regular blogging routine.

The results then:

Your Score: Progressive

You scored 64 Equality, 78 Liberty, and 21 Stability!

Your commitment to both liberty and equality makes you a blend of the Liberal and the Socialist. For you liberty and equality are two parts of the same condition. Everyone has to be free to pursue their own way-of-life but in order for that to happen everyone must start with a similar basic standard of living.

You value liberty particularly in cultural and personal life. You also value government intervention to promote equity in economic life while still supporting private enterprise. If this is too bland for you then try the Radical on for size.
