Don't really understand these titles, but it appears to match my other profile. Slightly right of centre.

Well Guap, I see only one solution: Resign your Chairmanship of the Conservative Planners Cabal in favor of Prudence. :)

I was the typical Liberal-Radical-Third Way-Libertarian axis of evil.

I agree that this is a magazine subscription tool. Of course, with my selections, I was not offered a subscription to American Spectator :(

Oh...you're serious? Just remember, life in Canada isn't all hockey, beer, and donuts, eh? ;)
Nope...it's also poutine, arrogant Quebecois, and lots of taxes. ;)

I'd still live there though, if given the right opportunity.

What?! I finally saw a Tim Horton's commercial and you want to tell me it's not all about donuts?

I choose not to take those kinds of online tests.

What a great way to allign online purchases with personal attitudes! If you don't regularly flush out your cookies, I'm sure doubleclick-dot-net and those other data gathering sites love it when you tell them all about your deepest personal beliefs.

Talk about directed advertising!

It's enough that they already know which IP address, zip code, and e-mail regularly corresponds to my credit number on Amazon and Ebay. They don't need to know my attitudes on abortion issues and cocaine legalization.

And let's not forget a certain Mr. John Poindexter and his new Pentagon information gathering agency...

After my credit card debacle a couple of weeks ago, I think I'm gonna avoid doing anymore of these quiz/online info gathering tests....

what happened with that anyway?
It got totally resolved, I never lost any money (except for the $5 the bank charged me for new cards), and the FBI and bank basically told me they weren't going to do anything about it.

I'd highly recommend that anyone concerned look into the program Ad-Aware (shareware, can be downloaded at www.download.com) that scans and deletes spy-ware programs and cookies.

I use it every day before I turn off my computer.

1. Liberal
2. Radical
3. Left Libertarian
4. Third Way
5. Centrist
6. Neo-Conservative
7. Libertarian
8. Conservative
9. Paleo-Conservative
10. Paleo-Libertarian

Wish they had more description of the different groups... :-( My top five seem like an odd mix--like the other quizes, this probably explains my difficulty in voting.

Changing My Name To El Bearo

Looks like this Bear will have to change his name: Call me El Bearo . I also plan to move close to the Missouri - Kansas border and ride my bike a lot. ;-)

1. Neo-Conservative
2. Third Way
3. Radical
4. Centrist
5. Left-Libertarian
6. Conservative
7. Libertarian WTF? :-c

Rather than purchase three-hundred (300) magazines to figure out what the hexx all of this means, I did a google on "Neo-Conservative" and "Third Way". When that confused the heck out of me I went to Wikipedia to read some descriptions.

Spent about twenty (20) minutes reading their description for Neo-Conservative. The only thing I got out of that was that nobody really can agree on what a NeoCon is. The most common description seems to be "ex-leftist who is OK with using military force". Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm......

The description for Third Way is simpler: De-regulate, lower taxes. I can agree with that.

Gotta go grease my derailer.

El Bearo'
