The stories in the deepest recesses of your imagination suggest that you have a strong longing to feel innocent and to have a clear conscience. They may also indicate that you are unable to forgive yourself for something that happened in your past.
Your subconscious feeds your imagination. It is where your deepest thoughts and feelings are housed and it has great power over how you experience and interpret the world.
i am 0% hypochondriac
You distrust the government, are fiercely independent, and don't belong in either party.
Religion and politics should never mix, in your opinion... and you feel opressed by both.
You don't want the government to cramp your self made style. Or anyone else's for that matter.
You're proud to say that you're pro-choice on absolutely everything!

Most left-brained people like you feel at ease in situations requiring verbal ability, attention to detail, and linear, analytical ability. Whether you know it or not, you are a much stronger written communicator than many, able to get your ideas across better than others.
It's also likely that you are methodical and efficient at many things that you do. You could also be good at math, particularly algebra, which is based on very strict rules that make sense to your logical mind.
from here, an chicago tribune article about Illinois incarcerating more people for drug posession with one of the largest racial disparities in the country.
