The Ultrafaction Generic Political Quiz

In the political turmoil of today, it is important to know where we stand on issues, and even abstract issues. In this quiz I attempt to give an idea of how much of an activist you are regardless of ideology!

So where do YOU stand? How do you rate these criteria and what will your response be? Do you see yourself as a hardcore activist or are you just along for the ride? Do you think reform will happen easily or do you think it will take more effort?

  1. What is your age?

  1. In 1992 a political panelist stated that candidate Bill Clinton was "carrying too much weight" in what he was trying to accomplish. Do you agree that there is such a concept when running for President?
  2. Do you think that we'll ever pay off the national debt?
  3. In 2000 some people came harshly against Al Gore and George W Bush for running to the middle. Gore lost and said that if he would do it again that he would let his vision pour our for America. Do you think politicians should run to the middle?
  4. In the movie "True Lies" a father was told that his daughter's real parents were musicians and rock stars, citing that the biological parents have no influence on kids today. Do you agree that bombardment of media can influence people for the worse?
  5. In the issue or so-called "party building" and internal party fighting, there is usually one practically pre-destined nominee before the primaries even start. Is it important to fight amongst ourselves even in our own party?
  6. Why did the Columbine high school massacre happen on April 20 1999?
  7. Liberals like to say that organized religion is out of control. Conservatives like to say that Hollywood is out of control. What influence do you think these entities have on people?
  8. In the 1990s a Senator said that we need to get away from issues that "divide us". Should politicians stay away from issues that cause fighting?
  9. Pat Buchanan said in a Larry King interview that the two party system was "a couple of guys with one hundred million dollars" and questioned as to how that can be competed with. Rush Limbaugh said "Easy! Go out and get one hundred and ten." Is finance reform needed for elections?
  10. Some people argue that primaries that get very competitive are bad for the party because it "beats up" the candidates and therefore produces a weakened nominee, which has to go on for the general election. Is this true, and should steps be taken to not have such fierce competition within a party?
  11. It was said that 1997 (the year after a Presidential election) was a year of political apathy. It was cited in 1998 (the congressional elections without a Presidential election) had a low turn out. It has been said this is actually good because it means that things are so good and people are so happy that they feel no need to vote. Do you agree?
  12. Has the United States peaked?
