Honest Blogger Quiz '07

Here are my answers to ideological questions in this quiz created by Tony Pierce. Hat tip to Reverse Vampyr, whose answers resemble mine in many ways!

1. Which political party do you typically agree with? Republican

2. Which political party do you typically vote for? Now: Republican. (I had a big change of heart...see answer to below question.)

3. List the last six presidents that you voted for? Bush '04, Gore '00, Clinton '96, Clinton '92, Bush '88

4. Which party do you think is smarter about the economy? Republican

5. Which party do you think is smarter about domestic affairs? Libertarian

6. Do you think we should keep our troops in Iraq or pull them out? Keep them in Iraq until their military and government are strong enough to take over and protect themselves from their enemies. Rome was not built in a day, you know!

7. Who, or what country, do you think is most responsible for 9/11? Osama Bin Laden, Saudi Arabia, and al-Qaeda

8. Do you think we will find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? We have found WMDs, just not as many as we expected to (which the media promptly buried). I am convinced that most of them are in Syria, since Saddam Hussein sent several convoys there during the buildup to the March 2003 invasion.

9. Yes or no, should the U.S. legalize marijuana? No

10. Do you think the Republicans stole the last presidental election? Absolutely not. Nor did they steal the one before that (and I voted for Gore in that one).

11. Do you think Bill Clinton should have been impeached because of what he did with Monica Lewinski? Bill Clinton was not impeached for enjoying the, er, charms of Monica Lewinski. He was impeached for lying under oath and efforts to influence the testimony of witnesses in a civil rights action, among other things. It had nothing to do with his sex life, although that was quite embarrassing for our country in and of itself.

12. Do you think Hillary Clinton would make a good president? How loudly can I say no? Hillary is a dedicated socialist who would have our government rule our lives in the way many European governments do...and we can all see what happened to France and Germany and what is happening in Britain. I also do not approve of her penchant for licking her finger and sticking it in the air to see which way the political wind is blowing before she makes any kind of decision (or backpedal).

13. Name a current Democrat who would make a great president: I don't think any current Democrat would make a great president. Although he's not an official Democrat anymore, Joe Lieberman is someone I would consider only because of his understanding of challenges our national security faces in these troubled times.

14. Name a current Republican who would make a great president: Fred Thompson is my favorite so far, but he hasn't yet declared his candidacy.

15. Do you think that women should have the right to have an abortion? Abortion used as birth control is despicable. In today's day and age, there is no excuse for so many "oops" moments. We're talking about life here! If at all, abortion should only be allowed in cases of rape, incest, or saving the life of the mother.

16. What religion are you? Christian; specifically Lutheran.

17. Have you read the Bible all the way through? No

18. Whats your favorite book? ...And Ladies of the Club by Helen Hooven Santmyer

19. Who is your favorite band? Current: KT Tunstall. Retro: Duran Duran.

20. Who do you think youll vote for president in the next election? Rudy Giuliani is a possibility, but I'm more leaning towards Fred Thompson if he runs.

21. Do you think President Bush and Vice President Cheney should be impeached? No. For what?

22. Do you think it was a coincidence that gasoline prices have nearly tripled and oil company profits have hit record highs while there was a US President whose family made its fortune through oil? How scary it would be for our president to have that much power! What critics often ignore is that not only is demand increasing here at home but overseas, specifically China and India, two burgeoning economies with huge populations. Simple economic rules apply: more demand, higher prices. Gas prices went up during the Carter administration, and his family made money by growing peanuts. And the price of everything goes up over time. Environmentalists need to stop whining about caribou in ANWR, new refineries, and trumped-up fears about nuclear energy if we are ever going to break free of our dependence on foreign oil, new technologies notwithstanding. Ethanol is not going to cut it...nor will "carbon credits."

23. Do you think President Bush is the worst US President ever? and if not, who is? No. My bet is currently on Jimmy Carter, whose missteps and faltering enabled Islamists to take over in Iran and usher in a new age of Islamofascist terrorism, for which not only the US, but the world is only just beginning to pay for.

24. Do you think Iraq is going through a civil war? Despite what the media would have us think, no...but if things don't improve, I have my worries.

25. Now with all that the US has gone through, do you think it would have been better for the nation that George Bush had never been elected president? No. Despite his imperfections (his tendency for big spending and his unfortunate stance on the border and illegal immigration), I think we are in much better shape today than we would have been if either Gore or Kerry had been elected. Bush had 9/11 and the following era thrust upon him and responded admirably, with a show of force that was necessary against a fanatical group that respects force over diplomacy. He is a man of conviction, something rare in today's political climate.
