What's Your Political Ideology?

I thought this would be a decent change from the usual topics in here. Take the quiz and post the results! Who knows, you might gain a little insight into yourself, as well as showing other members your point of view.

World's Smallest Political Quiz

I'll start it off:

The RED DOT on the Chart shows where you fit on the political map.



Your PERSONAL issues Score is 80%.
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 90%.

According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...

LIBERTARIANS support maximum liberty in both personal and

economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one

that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence.

Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose

government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate

diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.

Statist (Big Government)
Statists want government to have a great deal of power over the

economy and individual behavior. They frequently doubt whether

economic liberty and individual freedom are practical options in

today's world. Statists tend to distrust the free market, support

high taxes and centralized planning of the economy, oppose

diverse lifestyles, and question the importance of civil liberties.

LOL. While I agree with most of my rating (slightly more Libertarian than Conservative), the questions are skewed to achive a more Libertarian result. The site is promoting Libertarian views. The fact that a perfect score (100% in both categories) puts you in the Libertarian slot is the most obvious telling. A better survey would have more questions, and would not use a numbering system, just a scale of personal liberty or government protection/control.

What I got a chuckle out of is that you have to select all "maybe" to get centrist. In otherwords, you have to have no real convictions. I like it.

Pretty much dead on...



Your PERSONAL issues Score is 50%.
Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 80%.

According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...

CENTRISTS espouse a "middle ground" regarding government control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention and sometimes support individual freedom of choice.

Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind,

tend to oppose "political extremes," and emphasize what

they describe as "practical" solutions to problems.

I just think the Constitution should be used, for what it has in it.


For instance.

I think its Amendment the tenth that ALLOWS for big heath care......

ON A STATE TO STATE LEVEL.

This is not a Federal Issue.

Just me though.

According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...

LIBERALS usually embrace freedom of choice in personal matters, but tend to support significant government control of the economy. They generally support a government-funded "safety net" to help the disadvantaged, and advocate strict regulation of business. Liberals tend to favor environmental regulations, defend civil liberties and free expression, support government action to promote equality, and tolerate diverse lifestyles.

As others have said, obviously the test is liberatarian-leaning, but this is still pretty close.

This one is a little more detailed

This one is pretty funny

i figured the shorter, the more people would participate. long quizzes get boring and cumbersome.

as far as the libertarian slant, it might be. my government professor had us take the quiz, and she's quite liberal.
