118. Good imitation of Kohlberg Level 2.
(Kohlberg's little hierarchy of moral development. A lot of people on political sites act like they're at Level 5 or even 6, but often enough are dead-ringers for Level 1, 2, or 3.)

I'm assuming it's an imitation from what you said before.

And, no, while I think Kohlberg's full of it--such hierarchies typically apply poorly to individuals because they tend to adjust their "level" fairly frequently and don't necessarily even spend most of their time at any one--I still think it's a handy metric, sort of lumping features and traits that tend to co-occur.
