Republican ? or those guys

So, John comes to us yesterday and with all the debate over health care asks us if he can take a test to decide if he is a republican or democrat.  We are trying to explain that it just doesn't work that way.  We really don't want to tell him who or what to be, but we also want him to understand that he should decide what his values are and then make an appropriate decision.  We also try to explain to him that even if there is a test that it would be grossly swayed one way or the other.  For example, John found a test on the web and these are some of the questions: 

What political value is most important to you?

# My political party should have strong moral values.
# I want my political party to believe in freedom.
  What kind of questions are those?????  And who defined moral values as  having  nothing  to do with freedom???

Which of these celebrities do you think are good role models?

* Matt Damon, Susan Sarandon
* Mel Gibson and Sarah Michelle Gellar
* Clint Eastwood, Kurt Russell
* Ed Norton and Leonardo DiCaprio

Are you kidding me????  could we have some celebrities with morals, please???

What do you think is the most important quality of a good government?

* That they put money into programs that will help the community.
* Being efficient and effective.
* That they stay out of your personal business.
* That they do everything they can for social good and the environment.

I don't know the last time a government was efficient and effective and they don't put money into anything, they just make you  list the government as your biggest dependent on your tax form.
So, the test ended up in a situation where John had to give them his e-mail, address, phone number, name, rank, religion, and school ID.  (I'm just kidding ... but you get the picture.)  Needless to say, John will never know who he is.
