Are You Having a Post-Election Identity Crisis?

It’s more than a little odd: Since the presidential election was decided, the second most popular entrance page to the CultureFeast site has been Michael Callaway’s article, Take the Test: Are you Liberal or Conservative. Written back in April, it’s obviously not a new post, nor has it recently been promoted by any Social Media Mongers (term coined here).

But why, of all times, would people be suddenly searching for political identity tests when they’ve clearly just voted for their top choice for leader of the free world? Isn’t it a bit soon for elector’s remorse? Something is clearly digging into the American psyche.

Obviously, all Americans are not searching for this identity test, and my above statement dramatizes the situation. But it’s noteworthy that ANYONE would be searching to know themselves so soon after the election.

What do YOU think? Are you wondering where you REALLY stand on the issues? Do you know for sure whether you’re liberal or conservative? Are YOU experiencing elector’s remorse?

One reply on “Are You Having a Post-Election Identity Crisis?”

I know exactly where I stand and on Election Day, I blogged about WHY I voted for John McCain. Recent reports of organizations expecting Obama to govern to the left because they supported his candidacy have made me more certain of my vote although I DO hope that he will govern from the center. An article in yesterday’s Washington Post is worrisome because it reports that Obama intends to quickly ‘undo’ 200 executive orders from the Bush administration such as the limitation on embryonic stem cell research and limits on abortion in programs funded by US foreign aid.
