Politics Smolitics!

So I'm not real big into politics. And of course my husband is a die hard Republican while I'm a registered Independent. Needless to say we don't always see eye-to-eye when it comes to topics of political nature.

I generally try to avoid speaking about it at all costs where as he loves to prove his point. At times if I do discuss it with him - it's like hitting a brick wall. Over and over and over again! No matter what I say if it's not what he thinks then I'm wrong.

And I'm ok with that really. Not with being wrong (because I know I'm not) but with letting him think that I'm wrong. The battle over politics is not one that I wish to spend my little bit of free time on.

However, with the election drawing closer, I've realized that I still have NO idea who I'm going to be voting for. If I had to vote today - I'd be writing in Mickey Mouse!

So that leads me to today's topic. I was visiting over at Mommy Pie the other day and she had taken several political quizzes to see where she stood. I figured maybe I should do this too so I'm not voting for Mickey Mouse this election year.

Here are the results of the first one:






What Political Party Do Your Beliefs Put You In?
created with QuizFarm.com

You scored as Anarchism

Anarchism



75%

Green



67%

Democrat



67%

Socialist



58%

Communism



42%

Republican



33%

Nazi



17%

Fascism



8%

I agree with MommyPie that the whole Nazi thing is odd and that I got 17% is even worse.

So onto the next one:




So from taking this quiz, it appears that maybe I should vote for Mickey Mouse because I obviously don't think like many others.

So here is one more...


Your PERSONAL issues Score is 20%.
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 70%.

According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...

Conservative

CONSERVATIVES tend to favor economic freedom, but frequently

support laws to restrict personal behavior that violates "traditional
values." They oppose excessive government control of business,

while endorsing government action to defend morality and the

traditional family structure. Conservatives usually support a strong

military, oppose bureaucracy and high taxes, favor a free-market

economy, and endorse strong law enforcement.


So after all of this, you ask how I'm going to vote?

Beats the hell outta me!! Still clueless!!

Ok, ok, so I had to find one more that related to this election a little more. I found this one.

Below are the candidates ranked by how much you agree with their stances.

Barack Obama
Score: 32

Economy
Health Care
Roe vs. Wade

Iraq
Social Security
2nd Amendment

And still, while this one seems pretty cut and dry, I don't know if that is the right decision for me.

Yea, I think I'm still gonna vote for Mickey Mouse. At least I can still say I voted!

Oh my god, you scored as a conservative!! Yikes. Looks to me like you should join me on the Obama bandwagon. :-)

How hilarious is it that Anarchism scores to closely with the Green Party & Democrats?

I don't even know what to say about that...

You seem to have a pretty difficult decision to make this fall!

OBSCENITY ALERT:

This Blog is my outlet. It's where I share my thoughts and feelings. It's a place where I can vent. Not everyone thinks alike. People don't always share the same religious or political views. Some people (like me!) occasionally think in more “colorful” terms than others. Sorry, but I'm a big girl and can use cuss words and talk about not-so-mainstream stuff if I want to. If you find that sort of language offensive / shocking / annoying, you may want to stop reading now. Life as a military wife ain't always pretty. It's my life, though, so don't say I didn't warn you.
