Stop Calling me that!

I hate being labelled, I really do. Does that make me part of Generation X? No, that would be a LABEL. Labelling leads to pigeon-holing and assumptions that everybody carrying that label must be alike.

Recenlty, I commented on this blog and it has been implied that I am a right-wing conservative. I like to think I'm pretty liberal and when forced to choose, I normally vote with the democrats. And so,this morning, I asked Jeeves and he led me here . Drum roll please . . . I will now take the quiz (insert Jeopardy theme here).

And I am officially, a Centrist:


The political group that
agrees with you most is...



CENTRISTS espouse a "middle ground" regarding government

control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on

the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention

and sometimes support individual freedom of choice.

Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind,

tend to oppose "political extremes," and emphasize what

they describe as "practical" solutions to problems."

So there!

I come up as a centrist, too - a damned near perfectly in the middle of the grid centrist.

You didn't even get em very good for you. Did that make sense? I just woke up from a nap. Anyway, good reading. Wanted to chime in, maybe after I wake up more.

Oh it said I was Libertarian. Interesting. I knew I wasn't a die hard republican, but this was still a surprise.
