A Couple of Quizes

I am a "right wing kook" and I am only 68% Capitalist?

You Are 68% Capitalist, 32% Socialist

In general, you support a free economy and business interests.

You tend to think people should fend for themselves, even when times get tough.

However, do think the government should help those who are truly in need.

I do not believe that I am 32% Socialist. I am a Capitalist who believes that people and organizations have responsibilities and those of integrity will fulfill them.

The quiz itself has the usual flaws including the definition of Socialism. A Yes-No response is inadequate for some questions. There also seems to be some question of what Socialism is as the questions seem to be oriented toward a welfare state vs sink-or-swim economy instead of true Socialism (ie state owns and controls the industry)

Here is an even better quize. How lustful am I? Actually the questions have less to do with lust and a lot to do with morality.

Your Lust Quotient: 35%

You are a fairly lustful person, but nothing out of the norm.

You usually keep your lust under control, but sometimes it gets the better of you.

I don't have time to take both, so I chose the lust one, which was a bit strange. Anyway, I'm 20% lustful. I can't even imagine the threesome!

Congratulations, you have your lust under control. It's not that you aren't a lustful person, you just like to save it for the perfect occasion!

I'm not sure if the two go hand-in-hand or not nut I'm 88% "throw the poor to the lions" and 13" lustful. I'm not actually sure that qualifies as lustful or just old and cranky. Never did get the hang of that "free love" thing, unless medicine improved and "Free Love" was followed by "Free Medical Care". Guess I just never learned to share everything ...

You Are 48% Capitalist, 52% Socialist
While you are definitely sympathetic to a free economy, you also worry about the less fortunate.

Wealth and business is fine, as long as those who are in need get helped out too.

You tend to see both the government and corporations as potentially corrupt.

Well, here are the results for me. Not sure about point 2. I didn't think I indicated that in the survey. Interesting!

I was 92% Capitalist, 8% Socialist. Darn. I thought I'd purged all that socialism after I graduated from college and hit "the real world"

As they say,

When you go to college, you become a socialist.

When you get your first job, you become a Democrat.

When you get your first raise, you become a Republican.

Shoprat, I'll take the test in a minute. First I want you to know that when I clicked on your homepage link in the comment section of my blog, it didn't work. The link is incomplete:

Just so you know. :)

I got the same exact score as you did. I don't believe it either! I am not any percent a socialist.

I didn't take the "lust" one. Too chicken! :)

Hmm, 24% capitalist/76% socialist:
"You tend to be quite wary of businesses, especially big business.
While you know that corporations have their place, you tend to support small, locally owned shops.
As far as the rich go, you think they're usually corrupt and immoral." my age I still remember the robber barons of the railroad era....

...and at my age, there was no need to take the lust test....

I was 45/55 Socialist Capitalist. It basically said that I agreed W/free enterprise but felt society owed a little compassion to the less fortunate.

I was 45% lustful. Yes, LP I CAN imagine a threesome, but alas, it is only a dream...

I don't believe you're 32% socialist, either.

I think most of these quizzes usually have quite a few flaws in them just by the way they word the questions at times. Although, I didn't think this one was too bad. Of course, I can say that because I'm 80% capitalist ;-)!!
