So I'm A Socialist

Which makes a lot of sense, since I live in a country with a Socialist government and, indeed, in a district with a Socialist mayor.

As a foreigner, I am not allowed to vote in general elections here, but I am permitted to do so - and exercised my right - in the local ones.

Funnily enough, I had been watching our mayor's career via the local press before I moved to the area and saw much to approve of. An opinion obviously shared, since he's retained this office for around 25 years. We are on chatting terms and often run into one another at local events. And my next door neighbour works closely with him.

My mother even gets a kiss from the mayor at Christmas!

All of that is important to me and inconsequential to you.

The point of this post is that, I had been reading good things about The Politics Test: that it was something above the average, simplistic, online poll, so when I had a moment to spare today, I had a go.

They explain, "We wanted to get beyond the two catch-alls of American politics, the Democratic and Republican parties, and see where people actually stand." They achieve it well. The questions are searching and, as they say, "focused on fundamental values."

It gets to the core of what you personally believe in, irrespective of which side of the divide, what animal or color it might be, party-wise.

I could even be flattered by it's description of me in the results, "You exhibit a very well-developed sense of Right and Wrong and believe in economic fairness.", but, I can get beyond that and truthfully say that is an accurate description of exactly what I strive for.

Take the test, you might discover interesting things about yourself.
