The Orator blog has a link to a fascinating questionnaire which seeks to identify how "conservative" one is. You have to answer 40 questions and then it gives you a rating on a scale of 1 to 400. The lower the score, the more conservative you are. The average American scores 209.
My score was 187. Take the questionnaire HERE. I'll start a league table if some well known bloggers take part. Donal Blaney scored 68!!! But as Barry Goldwater might say: "Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice and that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue".
