Sorry I haven't been around for this confirmation but allow me to explain my reasoning

Nathan is a moderate with slight conservative tendencies while I am a moderate with liberal tendencies. I feel like together he and I can bring this congress together and help keep it diverse and multi partisan

I'm happy to see my support has risen to 72%. Would I like it to be 100%? Of course, but I'm still thankful for the support I have received to this point and I still respect the opinions of the ones who voted against me. I hope the ones voted

Excellent quiz! I was about to drill Nathan on ideology questions. Lol My fellow socialist provided a better way though.

I may embarrass myself by saying this before Nathan takes the ideology quiz, but from talking to him he does not strike me as a libertarian, and yet he is carrying the libertarian vote. Lol

MJ do you really expect Trepid to nominate someone even more to the right as Trepid? Honestly?
Or is it that you hope he nominated you?

Personally, I think Trepid and Nathan share similar views....

political Georgia
10/19/13 3:01 pm

Nathan I must ask these questions because I'm just curious
1. Do you generally support right-to-work laws?
2. Do you support "under God" in our Pledge?
3. Do you support more restrictions and regulations to protect against terrorist?

MJ, your results are a little off because you did select how important each issue is to you.

NateE Moderate Republican
10/19/13 3:14 pm

I'm not real sure about right to work laws, I'll have to do more research, I do in fact want the "under god" to stay, and in my fire classes we learn about terrorism and I'm going to tell you what they told me. You can't stop it, but you do protect

zman117 Ohio
10/19/13 3:16 pm

You have to select how important the things are. That and the "choose other" option dramatically change the results.

Places that are most likely to be attacked more such as places with a lot of people around at a given time, federal buildings and especially on dates that mean something, and if their have been previous attacks or threats on that building/area

On that note, do you support the Patriot Act?

Right-to-work laws generally make labor unions' power weaker.

Right to work is HORRENDOUS! It is anti worker disguised in a good name.

Democrats are saying "he is too conservative"
