Republicans are important because they keep things from getting too liberal, which could make our country a communist or socialist society. 2. How were you classified as a result of your answers on this quiz?
The quiz classified me as a Post Modern who is supportive of the government but more conservative on race policies and the safety net. The quiz also found that most people with similar views are supportive of Wall Street but also supportive of regulation and environmental issues. Also Post moderns are typically more supportive of diplomacy rather than military force. 3. What, if anything surprised you about your findings?
