Well, I am an anarchist according to this quiz, with my Green side pulling in a distant second. I think the results are a bit screwy because several questions are too vague to answer with certainty:

(#16) Should people control the government? [As opposed to robots? Hamsters? What, do people not control the government when it is an oligarchy?]

(#22) Do you believe violence is an appropriate way to gain power? [How big is the boot of oppression? Is it the Hillary Clinton type of namby-pamby regulatory abuse ("Eat your fucking vegatables, now!")? Or the Daily Kos type ("They work for Halliburton [or Big Tobacco, Big Pharma, Big Food, Big anything]. Screw them and their rights.")?]

(#23) Do you believe in the use of propaganda? [huh? You mean, like, marketing? Agressive marketing? Or do you mean lying?]

I think that it is much more instructive to ask people these questions:

- Do you think the United States Constitution grants the Federal Government the power to dictate how many gallons of water a toilet should hold?

- Do you believe the United States Constitution says what it means or means what you say?

Anypoop, nobody is asking me to create a quiz so this may be for nothing.

I was an anarchaist first and an environmentalist second. All these quizes are fun, but there are a lot of questions that are not really answerable as multiple choice. For instance, I am for stricter gun control in certain circumstances. But that requires are more lengthy explanation than a scaled answer can give.
