Dear Political Typology quiz group creator,

Our records indicate that you created a version of Pew Research Center’s 2014 Political Typology Quiz for your community or group. Access to the results from 2014 community quizzes will no longer be available after September 1, 2017, as we prepare to release an updated version of political typology and a new quiz this fall.

If you would like to save the data from your community quiz, we recommend copying, taking a screenshot or printing the results page before September 1.


http://www.people-press.org/quiz/political-typology/results/group/109957/

So, I have no clear memory of doing this. But apparently, 265 talk_politics members took the quiz and their results have been duly tabulated by PEW. I offer this as a look back at the way we were, in 2014. Post-Obama, pre-Trump; post-last Korean Crisis, pre-next Korean Crisis, etc, etc.

Make of it what you will.

At long last, after tons of relentless pressure from Trump and his supporters, the Reptilian candidate Hillary Clinton has revealed what the secret substance that she takes before presidential debates contains, which gives her a sudden flash of energy that lasts only for a few minutes.

In a unprecedented caving in, the DNC has reluctantly published a list of ingredients that their nominee is using, specifying that America deserves a strong and high-energy president, regardless of the bio-chemical price. The list goes as follows:

Hey, my beloved procrastinators! It's been a while since we had our last installment of ridiculously over-simplified and unbearably polarized hypothetical situations, inspired by the NationStates online game - you know, that place where you're the benevolent ruler of your own fictional state, which you're completely free to shape as you please, based on the stupid choices you make in situations like the below presented. Last time when we delved into the depths of True Democracy(tm), we ended up in a tie between Ms Lovegood, the Education Minister of Insert Country Name, who argued that mandatory parenting classes for the populace were the solution - and Chloe, your incredibly mature teenage niece who just wanted some assistance from babysitters programs. Well, now the issue we're about to discuss is a bit different - it's related to technology and trade.

The Issue

Biotech firm McShanto LLC has developed a new genetically engineered corn, with 200% more “butter” flavor and a guarantee to be free of those stringy bits that get stuck in your teeth. They've also engineered every mature kernel to be sterile, while marketing a special starter seed at premium prices. Angry supporters of small farms are demanding you lend an ear.

Another month has rolled off, and it's time to see what's the new topic that you guys chose last time! Aaaand, teh winrar is...

The Hybrid Warfare

Now this could get a bit controversial (as if that's a surprise, heh) ;)

Hello again, fellow political junkies! It's time for our new installment of ridiculously over-simplified hypothetical situations that you, being the benevolent ruler of your fictional state as per the NationStates model, would have to collide with. You know, your extremist decisions are somehow supposed to shape up your country in the way you deem most suitable. The last time when we had one of these polls, most of you sided with the CEO of a high-tech manufacturer, who argued that not only should robot wives be allowed to be produced, but there should be more competition on the market. But now the issue is a bit different, namely:

The Issue

A recently released book authored by Jennifer Nixon, your former Human Services Minister, has highlighted the financial and mental health concerns of parents in Insert Country Name. The book has thrust the issue of childcare back into the public spotlight.

Hey, my beloved procrastinators!

Last time when we delved into the depths of True Democracy(tm), the bulk of you guys sided with Sven Yeltsin, the political strategist who argued that negative campaign ads should be left alone. Now the issue is somewhat in line with our monthly topic, women empowerment. Plus something more...

The Issue

Robotics giant Robot4U Inc. has caused an uproar in Insert Country Name for its new product – Mindy The Robot Wife. Budding ‘AI rights’ activists and feminist groups have demanded the sale of such units be outlawed.

Long time, no ridiculous poll from me. For shame! That should be amended. But first, this just in:

Trump, in series of scathing personal attacks, questions Clinton’s mental health

Which brings us to our topic. It's time for our new installment of ridiculously over-simplified hypothetical situations that you, being the benevolent ruler of your fictional state as per the NationStates model, would have to collide with. You know, your extremist decisions are somehow supposed to shape up your country in the way you deem most suitable. The last time when we had one of these polls, the majority decided that the cure to terrorism is to first understand why terrorists act as they do, and reach out to the ethnic and religious minorities and seek common ground. But now the situation is quite different. So here goes...

The Issue

As an increasingly tense election season looms, candidates have already begun smearing their opponents with vulgar and offensive campaign advertisements. Politicians and pundits of all corners of the political spectrum have asked you to bring some civility back to politics (good luck with that!)

The debate, and a poll )
