It seems to me that making a political quiz that was unbiased, yet specific would be easy to do. I must be wrong because every quiz I have seen asks questions in a way to elicit a specific response by using vague and contradictory questions. Strangely enough, David posted a quiz on his webpage and everyone has been filling it out. Since David has not criticized the questions for being vague, I thought it was time for me to.
Most of the questions ask incorrectly “Do you believe”. Well I do believe most of these exist or the ideas exist. This is not what it is trying to ask. The author would like me to say I accept these ideas or understand these ideas to be better than ideas. Unfortunately, the misuse of believe is not the only problem with the questions. They are also extremely vague.
