You Are a New School Democrat

You like partying and politics - and are likely to be young and affluent.

You're less religious, traditional, and uptight than most Democrats.

Smoking pot, homosexuality, and gambling are all okay in your book.

You prefer that the government help people take care of themselves.

You Are a "Don't Tread On Me" Libertarian

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!

:cool:

You are a Liberal For Life--

You've got a bleeding heart - and you're proud of it.

For you, liberal means being compassionate, pro-government, and anti-business.

You believe in equality for every person, and you consider yourself universally empathetic.

Helping others is not just political for you ... it's very personal too.
meh, not really

Well, I don't associate with any of those parties in the last choice, so clicking through the list, I'm either a new school Democrat, a capitalist Republican, or a Don't Tread on Me Libertarian. I'd say it's a bit imprecise. :rolleyes:

You Are a Liberal Republican

When you tell people that you're Republican, they rarely believe you.

That's because you're socially liberal - likely pro-choice and pro-gay rights.

You're also not so afraid of big goverment, as long as it benefits people and not politicians.

You are the most likely of any Republican type to swing over to the Democrat side sometimes.

Was there even a gay rights question on there? This quiz seems to assign attributes to people it hasn't even asked questions about. :confused: Though, your description describes me well, so I have to wonder how I wound up in the categories I wound up in. :rolleyes:

There was an implied question when they asked about sex between consenting adults.

I'll agree for the most part.

Where can I take the quiz to find out if I'm a Canadian?

I'm a Liberal Republican, unless I change answer #12 (which I was waffling on) -- then I'm a Don't Tread On Me Libertarian.

Cyrus, have you read the pirate nerd thread? That was before your time, but it's in the Classics Thread.

You Are a Capitalist Republican

Money makes your world go round - and it's no surprise that you always vote your wallet.

You're financially successful (or plan to be), and your agenda is low tax and pro business.

You don't get fired up about abortion... but mention capital gains tax, and you go crazy.

You want government to be as small as possible - and to stay out of the way of business.
Meh. Not really. I am a bit economically conservative, but I vote liberal because of social issues. I'd bet I would get different results by switching single answers around

You Are a Liberal Republican
That's how I usually measure.
When you tell people that you're Republican, they rarely believe you.
In this forum? :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: No, in today's political climate, people have little doubt what I'm registered as.
That's because you're socially liberal - likely pro-choice and pro-gay rights.
Pro choice yes, gay rights....ehhh....
You're also not so afraid of big goverment, as long as it benefits people and not politicians.
Ehh, that doesn't really match how I answered.

It happens - so far not in a national election, though.

I do object to some of the questions, though. Vouchers, for example, don't have to be for religious purposes. In fact, they typically aren't.

Yeah, but once you hit 30, it's all downhill from there. :biggrin:
