    From the Center for American Progress

    Take the interactive poll below to see how your own ideological leanings stack up against those of your fellow Americans. You'll get a score on a scale of 0 to 400 (0=least progressive, 400=pinkiest of pinko fag commies). The national average is 209.5. The mean score for liberal Democrats is 247 and 160 for conservative Republicans.

    321 for me. But I do question whether some of the answers I'm guessing they think identify progressive (or conservative) attitudes really do that. Things are more complex than the creators of such surveys always realize.

    For example, of course the primary responsibility that corporations have to their shareholders is to maximize profits. That's why government regulations are necessary so that that responsibility does not lead to actions that are dangerous for the rest of us.

    You believe because you have seen. Blessed are those who believe and have not seen. Still, you will be seated at the right hand of McGay in the afterlife. icon_biggrin.gif

    370???

    I´m actually center left, despite the silly survey. Good old socially progressive and fiscally center to right. 370 is left of Mao.
