Saw this on Ahistoricality. I took the quiz twice. Below is the second result, but they were fairly consistent across trials.
Interesting. I have nearly always considered myself an independent, that is, until the last presidential election. I was, and continue to be, so disgusted with George Bush and company, and all that they represent, in destroying our country, in destroying our standing in the world, in destroying the mutual respect of others that is a hallmark of what America has and can be. I contributed twice, rather hefty sums to the Democratic National Committee, and proudly displayed stickers and signs in support of Kerry/Edwards. The stickers remain on my vehicles. I won't take them off, until those other idiots are out of leadership in my country!
I am embarassed for the things we have done. I am ashamed to talk with my Croatian friends, for our misuse of their territory to transport torture victims. I feel deeply distraught over our hypocrisy, especially in light of the (undoubtably deserved) war crimes trial of now-deceased Slobodan Milosevic. I'd love to see some of our own perpetrators stand trial at the Hague. I won't prejudge their fates. That's what trials are for. But I would not weep (in sadness at least) to see Donald Rumsfeld in the dock, arguing before a world court that degrading and humiliating treatment, beatings, torture, and murder, the unnecessary death of thousands, tens of thousands, likely more than a hundred thousand people (discussion), is somehow justified. Yes, it is less than what has been done in Darfur, less than what happened in Cambodia, less than Rwanda, less than Nazi Germany. But unjust, inexcusable, and indefensible nonetheless.
My favorite TV show (in fact the only new show that I even watch regularly, is ABC's Commander in Chief which is FINALLY back on the air, after about a three month hiatus. I like the character of Mackenzie Allen (played by Geena Davis), the fiery, idealistic, and driven independent president. I think the show makes some strong political statements about many of the failings of the current administration, without excusing the limitations of the opposition. Maybe it is time for a shakeup of the decrepit two-party system we have, IFF we can ensure that the neo-cons go down, for a very very very long time!
