Please don't hurt me.
You Are a Liberal Republican

When you tell people that you're Republican, they rarely believe you. That's because you're socially liberal - likely pro-choice and pro-gay rights. You're also not so afraid of big goverment, as long as it benefits people and not politicians. You are the most likely of any Republican type to swing over to the Democrat side sometimes.

I dunno. While I wouldn't be Republican of any sort, liberal republicans I understand and quite enjoy talking to.

Very deceptive.

The quiz is designed to railroad people into Libertarianish positions by the way the questions are framed, particularly the way it doesn't deal with infrastructure questions, environmental issues, or foriegn policy and instead focuses on the welfare state and the "size" of government.

I agree, it's deceptive that way. A somehow-surprising number of Libertarian-written tests are pretty biased that way. This inspired me to take it to an extreme version:

Hope you don't mind me dropping links in your LJ, moof.

Yeah, me too. Michael and his friend and I were sitting around two nights ago bemoaning the virtual extinction of the liberal republican.

Honestly, I'd just be happy with the first candidate who choked a journalist with "My faith is deeply personal to me and not up for dissection".

But hey, at least in DC, we kept Bush's sorry ass to 9%. Too bad they won't let us have senators.
