A Red/Blue Survey To Prove We're (Mostly) All Purple
Today's vernacular uses the term "Red States" and "Blue States" to divide Americans into ideological categories.
My opinion is that very few fit into the Conservative Red State or Liberal Blue State categories accross the board, particularly when it comes to social issues.
To prove my point, I've devised a simple survey. Now, read the next part carefully  this is important.
DO NOT ANSWER THE QUESTIONS. JUST READ THEM AND TELL ME HOW MANY BLUE ANSWERS AND HOW MANY RED ANSWERS FIT YOUR VIEWPOINTS. IF YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS (WHICH ARE CONTROVERSIAL IN NATURE), I WILL DELETE YOUR RESPONSE.
Now, here's the survey:
THE "ARE YOU RED, BLUE, OR PURPLE" SURVEY
1. Abortion. I am PRO LIFE/PRO CHOICE
2. Capital Punishment should be: PART OF THE SYSTEM/ABOLISHED.
3. Gay Marriage: SHOULD BE BANNED/SHOULD BE ALLOWED
4. Flag Burning: SHOULD BE BANNED/SHOULD BE ALLOWED
5. School Prayer: SHOULD BE ALLOWED/SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED
6. School Vouchers: GOOD IDEA/BAD IDEA
7. Unions: MORE OFTEN BAD FOR WORKPLACE/MORE OFTEN GOOD FOR WORKPLACE
8. Gun Control: TOO RESTRICTIVE/NOT RESTRICTIVE ENOUGHLast edited by AvengerRam; 02062006 at 01:42 AM.

Sorry to be the rightwing nut, but.......
RED across the board"Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning."  Hesiod

Well, I did say that I thought it would prove that we're mostly all purple. There are always exceptions, and most will lean to one side or another.

6 blue
2 red
Question though  Shouldnt all of your choices be the same? All "should" blue & all "should not" red? Some seemed out of place.

51/2 red. One of those I am still debating on.

Um... no... the colors denote the side of the political spectrum the answers represent.

At least a couple of the questions don't work. For instance, while most conservatives favor school vouchers, a substantial number of conservatives fear that vouchers would lead to more government control of private and home schools. Therefore, the "reddest" voters might give the same answer as the blue voter, though for different reasons.

5 red
3 blue
And people wonder why I don't think our current political system works. Sure would like to see and hear people's ideas, rather than political parties values.
