Neither Nor

Told you I was middle of the road...

You are:

Social Moderate (41% permissive)
and an...
Economic Moderate (41% permissive)

You are best described as a: Centrist
You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.

I am neither liberal nor conservative. I don't believe in giving hand outs, but I do believe in offering opportunity. It's up to the individual to make the best of things.

To find out your political self, take this quiz.

I don't talk about politics on this blog. Political opinion, unless you're a (REAL) political analyst is just that--an opinion. Everyone has one. But I have observed an interesting trend toward blind fanaticism.

The majority of writers whose blogs I read seem to favor liberalism over conservatism and they are also the most vocal and caustic.

From my perspective, both of these presidential candidates seem lacking. And the slick spin they put on their speeches is shameful. Applying term limits is the smartest thing we ever passed.

I'll vote. I always do. But to steal from Russell Crowe's, Captain Aubrey in Master and Commander, I'll be choosing the lesser of two weevils.

Middle-of-the-road-Maria, signing off.

I don't take many quizzes, but this one was interesting.

Yes, I think you nailed is Maria. I get tired of the politics and by the end of it all, hardly have a stomach to vote at all.

I know. Talk is cheap, and promises are empty unless you've got a track record of keeping them.
