I cannot find it. It was a quiz someone linked and it showed on a grid left/right and liberal/cons. Anyone have the link?

I am legitimately terrible at these, lol! “Do you agree or disagree...?” Me-? Look are you asking me if this is how it IS or if this is how it SHOULD be, because the answers to those questions are polar opposites and I don’t want to get credit for the wrong one

Yes!!

I find things like this ridiculously hard.

When dealing with the world as it is now? Or in an ideal if I could run everything? Yes I agree with that statement but it the 12 other things you are assuming goes along with it it! Sometimes but not all the time.

I can't answer these questions either, and I don't know where I stand politically. I have friends on both sides literally telling me that democracy and freedom and America as we know it are going to end if their side doesn't win this election.

People have been saying that for 200 hundred years. In "The First Four Years" Laura gets a great deal on a flock of sheep because her neighbor was convinced the economy was ruined because of which party just won the presidency.

You are supposed to answer based on your personal worldview of how you believe things should be. It's still hard but I hope that helps.

But should be in relation to reality that is actually hear or ideally because thoes are very very different things.

Ideally.

Although I answer the questions pragmatically. Some cats are out of the bag; so what's my ideal knowing that cat isn't going back in? But I still refer back to my ideal, too.

Great minds! I was just wondering where to find this. Thanks!

And as usual I agree least with the two major parties and agree with no one more than 65%. Here's to voting third party again (I'm not in a swing state so )

Ooh, that's cool, I hadn't seen that one before. I often have trouble answering questions, but I actually did fine with that one! Didn't know where I would end up, but turns out I am completely opposite the presidential candidate I'll be voting for (plus the one I'm not voting for). But in the same spot as the leader of the party whom I supported in the most recent couple of European Parliament elections.

My isidewith answers were way more polarized than I remember from the past. Answering all the questions (as opposed to just the initial ones they get you to answer) reduced my gap between the two main parties from 90% to 67%.
I feel like it was maybe less accurate than in years past though? (Not that I deny being in a more polarized position now.) For one, it had my zip code but put me in my old congressional district, that is now nowhere near me (or my zip code) since the boundaries changed in 2016.

True. There is always something that seems so new and different, yet simultaneously when you dive into any past period you find so many similarities.

I am taking one of the linked ones now. I, too, fall in between and not in line with either of the major parties.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

I say this ALL the time. I said it this past weekend. Except I am referring to spiders when I say it so passionately. Does it also apply to politics for me? What are they referring to here? I am not sure I feel this way politically but love this phrase in terms of my feelings on spiders.

In more seriousness. Sometimes I just don't know enough about the topic and it's implications to be sure where I exactly stand on it. Or feel both sides have merit.

eta: I am still almost in the middle
