Solid Liberal
Even though I'm not murrican so a decent number of the answers I have were probably not what they were looking for.

Got Solid Liberal, but am probably more of a Faith and Family Liberal. (Despite being agnostic, I'm socially conservative by nature). The questions they use as a litmus test for social conservatism need to be updated- there are plenty of young evangelicals who are fine with gay marriage, for example, but positions on abortion have pretty much held steady across all age groups in the past forty years.
Used to be that people for gay marriage were pretty solidly in the "As long as y'all don't hurt someone, do what ya want", which includes most of the other "traditionally liberal" ideas, with the possible exception of abortion, depending on whether you consider a fetus a "someone" to hurt or not.

Now-a-days, less clear cut. People could be for gay marriage for other reasons besides a general liberal attitude since it's become normalized, so they might be for it, but more in-line in other social issues with a conserative outlook.

Young Outsider, apparently. Never heard of 'em before.
Ditto.

I lean more toward liberalism by heart, so that quiz was kinda lame. Skeptic would've fit me better.

Right. Not everyone who supports gay marriage is a sex-positive young college student from the Bay Area. (Many sex-positive young college students forget this, then get angry when people who are nominally on the same side of the political spectrum as they are have the gall to hold the right positions for the "wrong reasons". I've known a few.)

I suspect something similar is operating with drug legalization- I'm in favor of pot legalization, for example, and lowering the drinking age back to eighteen, but I'm definitely not going to defend someone who sells their kids' possessions to buy meth. In other words, I'm still in favor of a war on drugs, even if I'm staunchly against the War on Drugs as she is waged. I can expound on this, but my proposed solution is fairly unorthodox.

@Footjob, you can microwave most grains I've tried pretty easily through the microwave, even if they aren't packaged for it.

Solid Liberal, but this quiz blows. The debt issue is far more complex than just social security and other aid programs. Not one question about education, either.

It's also very polarizing. No option to give nuanced answers.

Anyway L+ Solid liberal here.

Solid liberal. Yeah, some of the questions are dumb, the debt issue and social security stuff especially.

Also,

In other words, I'm still in favor of a war on drugs, even if I'm staunchly against the War on Drugs as she is waged. I can expound on this, but my proposed solution is fairly unorthodox.
I'm in favour of legalizing everything, and then getting a secular version of "AA" (Addictions, not just alcohol) for those who cannot handle it. "Punish" (more like, help) the consequences of doing something, not just doing it. I.E. Child endangerment, reckless driving or DUIs, reckless use of a giant bulldozer, etc.

Not to say that I think everyone and their mother should go out and do meth like people drink booze, but I don't think that illegality is any fix, and just makes things worse. Especially because I've seen tidbits of interesting studies that point to addiction being a matter of social and economic exclusion than anything about "addictive personalities", i.e. for the most part, people in good situations don't do drugs, or try and get off drugs if they're already physically addicted*. Hence, making it illegal just hurts the chances of them going to get help, for fear of getting thrown in jail.

*The existence of "cocaine is a rich-mans drug" is the reason I think it's "interesting" and "points to". More studies! MOAR.

But yeah, s'long as you ain't hurting anyone or doing anything (besides the drug itself) illegal, I see no reason to interfere. On a political, general level. On a personal level, I want my wot-cuddle-bro to stop smoking, but that's on a personal level. Personal things and views should only interefere with political views in terms of what you think needs to be an end-goal, not in terms of what needs to be done to get to that end-goal. Best-practices fills the "means" part.
