This test, however, is a work of satire, not a history lesson. Consider all questions in this quiz as purely hypothetical situations, posed to discover your perception of reality, rather than actual reality. Through this test’s funny question and answer format you will unearth far deeper insights into your personal political persuasion than on those dry political party tests, which merely pose a dull array of boring questions to give you a rough estimate of whether you are a conservative or liberal.
And rather than using the funny test formats used on all those popular online personality purity tests and quizzes, which merely poke fun of one political viewpoint, this test allows you see the humor in four political viewpoints at once!
SECTION I: ISSUES OF GENERAL INTEREST
What follows are not official party positions. Rather, this is an inquiry into your personal beliefs to determine where you fall in the political spectrum.
Key to abbreviations in test questions that follow:
CONS: Conservative (Archconservative)
LIBL: Liberal (Leftwing Wacko)
LBRT: Libertarian (Antigovernment Libertine)
COMM: Communist (Commie Sympathizer)
Here are two sample questions
1: Government's practice of stealing from the rich to give to the poor is...
CONS: a crime.
LIBL: a brave, generous and heroic deed.
LBRT: a foolish, misguided attempt at social engineering.
COMM: an inspiration to us all.
178: What should be the minimum wage?
CONS: 75% less than it is right now.
LIBL: High enough so an unskilled single working mother with six kids can afford a 50,000 square foot home on the beach, and still afford to take the entire summer off from work to circumnavigate the globe by traveling on a luxury cruise.
LBRT: There should be no minimum wage laws. Minimum wage laws increase the unemployment rate, because minimum wage rates reduce the number of employees employers can afford to hire.
COMM: Rather than minimum wage laws, there should be maximum wage laws to prevent greedy owners and corporate CEOs from earning obscene salaries.
