How American are You?

How do you feel about guns?
Guns should be legal - it's each person's right to protect themselves
Guns should be outlawed as much as possible
Guns are a huge problem in the US and make it incredibly dangerous

"X, Y, ..."
Z as in "Zed"
Z as in "Zee"

You would rather eat...
Something at the Olive Garden, Applebee's, or Red Lobster
A gourmet French meal of escargot (snails) and tete de veau (cow's head)
A home cooked meal of pasta and meatballs

Canadians are:
Much more advanced than Americans when it comes to social issues
Nice people who play hockey and put up with way too much cold weather
Americans - at least, any of the good ones become Americans

When you drink beer, it's:
Dark and with flavor
You don't drink beer, you prefer wine
Light colored and American, baby!
Note: I don't drink beer but I don't drink wine, either.

Joining the American military could best be described as:
Heroic
Desperate
Dumb

How do you get around?
In a new (less than 5 year old) car
By foot or public transportation
In an old car [Note: my car is a 2001]

What kind of cheese do you prefer?
Bleu cheese
American cheese... duh!
Brie
Note: I'm not crazy about cheese in general, but I will eat American cheese. Not because it is called American cheese, however.

Do you vote?
Always
In major elections
Hardly ever or never

How many American states begin with W?
5
No idea!
4
3

The best late 20th century American president was:
Carter
Reagan
Clinton

Are you in debt?
Not at all
You owe on your car, college education, credit cards.... plus the money you borrowed from your parents
A few credit card bills or loans, nothing major

Your sports watching habits can best be described as:
Nascar and wrestling
Football and baseball
Women's basketball and soccer
Note: I did not answer this one - I don't watch sports at all.

How do you feel about the war in Iraq?
It might have been a mistake but we should finish the job
We should be bombing the hell out of North Korea and Iran too
It's disgusting and embarrassing

And flag burning?
It's un-American, but probably protected under freedom of speech
It should be banned in a Constitutional amendment
Sometimes it's necessary to make a point

How do you feel when you hear "I'm proud to be an American where at least I know I'm free" sung?
You feel patriotic, even if the song's a bit cheesy
You can't wait for it to be over
You never hear that song!

Do you own an American flag?
You might own a sticker or pin or something
Nope
You do - and you even fly it on holidays

The United Nations:
Should be something the US listens to more often
Should be listened to most cases
Is a scam - and the US should kick 'em to the curb

What do you like best about America?
Even though it's not perfect, you're pretty free to do and be what you want
American movies and music aren't bad... sometimes
The diversity. Thank god for San Francisco and NYC!

Is America the best country on earth?
No way... try Canada, Sweden, or Australia instead
Hell yeah!
It's up there

You Are 43% American
America: You don't love it or want to leave it.
But you wouldn't mind giving it an extreme make over.
On the 4th of July, you'll fly a freak flag instead...
And give Uncle Sam a sucker punch!
