To spice things up a little, I'm gonna include my responses to every question.

I'll denote how much the proposition matters to me on a scale of 1-5; 1 matters the least, 5 matters the most.

Spoiler
1. Laws should restrict abortion in all or most cases.
Disagree strongly, 5.

2. Unions were indispensible in establishing the middle class.
Agree strongly, 4.

3. In nearly every instance, the free market allocates resources most efficiently.
Disagree strongly, 5.

4. Public radio and television funded by the state provide a valuable service the citizens.
Agree strongly, 4.

5. Some people should not be allowed to reproduce.
Agree strongly, 5.

6. Access to healthcare is a right.

This is not the greatest sig in the world, no. This is just a tribute.
Some of those questions were pretty shitty and I felt like plenty were way too simplified.


skipped over a question at first that now answering gives me an extra .5 libertarian points.

congratulations, you got 29/53 or 54.7% correct

if you answered neutral to a proposition i gave a straight answer to, i considered that incorrect

if i said neutral for anything, i just gave you that one for free

you answered 32/53 or 60.4% correctly

some of your answers were really weird though

i just look at it as "is this the biggest issue in the world, or is it that big of a deal"

for example, i obviously think abortion rights are paramount

but i don't necessarily care all that much whether someone considers their spirituality a religious thing (even though i would say that it objectively is)

in other words, would i get into a heated debate over this subject

The less of our trivial differences we focus on, the better. When people get along and work together life is good.

but in order for us to work together, we have to agree on certain things

in order for us to agree on certain things, we have to have a discussion about them

in order to have a discussion about them, we have to know where we stand

tests like this can serve as an aide to that end

this inevitably will result in division, but i like to think that division is the first step of the slow process to unity

I don't feel like this accomplishes that at all. It's a way for people to organize into little groups and close themselves off from their "rivals" with perceived differences caused by a system designed to fuck us all.

33. It is wrong to question a leader in wartime.

It comes down to the reading of the question, I think, which is why I weighted it at 2. I'm relatively happy with our own system, which is regulated abortions until a certain point, and then abortions only for extenuating circumstances for the remainder of the pregnancy. I think this would technically constitute 'restriction in most cases'. I'm not in favour of banning abortions outright, nor is that prospect really on the cards in the UK.

See above; we should restrict abortions != abortions are never sensible.

I agree that it's wrong to question a leader during wartime insofar as developed countries tend to have robust informal or institutional mechanisms for not letting the leader do whatever the fuck he wants, and that significant erosion of a leader's authority during wartime is probably not healthy for the country as a whole.

It's entirely self-indulgent, diagnostic semantics. But, who cares? It's fun to be petty once in a while, especially on here.
