Unfortunately a lot of you dear readers may be getting confused on just what a NeoCon is and what they believe in. You might be getting a NeoCon confused with a conservative or a libertarian. Or, god forbid, you may actually be a NeoCon. So to clear the issue up a bit, I have devised this short and simple test so you can see if you might qualify as a NeoCon.  Answer Yes or No

#1. Do you believe that the United States should be involved in building a grand global Empire?

#2. Do you believe in massive deficit spending for empire and wars around the world?

#3. Do you believe that monitoring and tracking of Americans should be done without regard to the constitution or the Bill of Rights?

#4. Are you for torture?

#5. Do you believe that America's sons and daughters are good enough to die in foreign wars around the world yet not good enough to employ here at home?

#5. Do you believe in monopolies?

#6. Do you believe in near total corporate control of your government and your lives?

#7. Do you believe that money is more important than values?

#8. Do you believe in big government controlled for the interest of the few at the expense of the many?

#9. Do you believe that the market is everything?

#10. Do you believe that natural resources, infrastructure, governmental structures and institutions, and just about everything else of value in this country should be sold to multinational corporations?

#11. Do you believe the government should be in your bedroom?

If you answered yes to most of these questions then you are likely a NeoCon and I am sorry to say that you share much with other inhumane extremist ideologies like fascism and communism.

If you answered no to most or all of these questions then congratulations. You aren't likely a NeoCon(or at least you shouldn't identify with them). You could be a conservative, libertarian, liberal, or a progressive but thankfully you aren't for a massive global empire that seeks to crush individual liberties for power and profit.

Hopefully you all did well on the test.
