Old School Sammy

Hmmm. The usual objections apply, I suppose. I feel like a large percentage of my answers weren’t so much statements of absolute principle as they were practical reactions to the unseemly realities of the political condition I have to live in. If people would behave themselves a lot of these scores would shift.

But what is mostly revealing in this is that aside from my 5% score on Socially Conservative Republican, I don’t have any extreme scores at all.

You scored as Old School Democrat. Old school Democrats emphasize economic justice and opportunity. The Democratic ideal is best summarized by the Four Freedoms: freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

  1. I’d be more of a foreign policy hawk if it weren’t for the fact that I look back at things we did in the early to mid 20th Century and see how those decisions – well-intended though they were – led fairly directly to our current foreign policy problems. I don’t want to go back to early century isolationsim – that’s hardly the solution, as we learned the hard way – but at the same time I wish we had a more forward-looking sense for when to stay the hell out of things, because we have this track record of making bad situations worse.

    HMM, these sound pretty damn good, don’t they?
    And all this time, the Democratic Party elite is running around looking for a “message.” UH, HELLO?! What’s so friggin’ old school about the four freedoms?

    Yo, Smith! Here’s a surprise; I scored as 100% Libertarian and 100% Pro-business Republican. The quiz actually had to pose a tie-breaker question.
    “You scored as Libertarian.
    Libertarians believe that you have the right to live your life as you wish, without the government interfering, as long as you don’t violate the rights of others. This translates into strong protections for privacy and property rights, and a weak to non-existent social safety net.”
