How to Win a Fight With a Conservative is the ultimate survival guide for political arguments

My Liberal Identity:

You are a Reality-Based Intellectualist, also known as the liberal elite. You are a proud member of what’s known as the reality-based community, where science, reason, and non-Jesus-based thought reign supreme.

Thoughts on the meme
  1. I approve of this result
  2. There are only seven questions but it took a while as I actually had to think about my answers
  3. This quiz reminds me of the one I took on beliefnet the other day. I approved of that result as well, even though I had to take that one four times to figure out why I was scoring the way I did (100% secular humanist)

I am also a Reality-Based Intellectualist, though I was *that close* to being a crusader for justice. The difference was whether I thought the Founding Fathers would be more appalled by Dictator Dubya or the Xtian whackjobs (ultimately my choice).

I also had to think about my answers. It felt like "so many atrocities, so little time".

My problem with this one was that I kept coming up with slightly different spins -- f'rinstance, that the Founding Fathers would be appalled by Dubya's grab for power, but more so that it was allowed to happen.

I wound up being a crusader for social justice. I'm not entirely sure I agree with that assessment -- and I really couldn't come up with a context for the last question. (A nude pyramid of 3 people? why? To set on fire? to sacrifice people on? to bury in sands immemorial? to publish in the National Enquirer? Honestly, I don't want to see ANY of those people nude....)

I interpreted the nude pyramid question as "give them a taste of the torment their words and actions ultimately caused other people. Therefore I chose the people most directly responsible for the abuses at Abu Ghraib.
