    Scoring the quiz:

    If you separated the questions into three colums, you're in luck. Otherwise, follow this key.

    Questions 1,4,7,10,13,16,19 - a=0, b=1, c=2
    Questions 2,5,8,11,14,17,20 - a=2, b=0, c=1
    Questions 3,6,9,12,15,18 - a=1, b=2, c=0

    Add all the points together and check your political orientation:

    0-10 points: You are rock solid conservative! You want to tear down government with your bare hands and rebuild it.

    11-29 points: Middle of the Road. You haven't quite taken sides yet. It's time to reevaluate all your decisions in life.

    30-40 points: You're a lib, er, progressive and proud of it! Government regulation is the answer to everything. In fact, this blog could use a dose of the Fairness Doctrine.

    Okay. Some of them are not so serious but...

    Spring is the season if you're middle of the road.

    Summer is for the liberal. Because it's vacation time and liberals don't like to work for a living. :P

    Fall is for conservatives. It's the beginning of the fiscal year and conservatives are all about money. :P
