If you feel there are right answers you are no libertarian, those who actually have those political views must accept the political views of others, republican or democrat.

My score was X= +4, Y= -1, a fiscal conservative and social moderate.

Andy’s not a fiscal liberal; he tested as a fiscal communist leaning towards social authoritarian.

Zero, you fit right in with the flower children of the early 70’s, which is surprising to me. I thought you would have tested about where Andy did.

-5 doesn't quite make you a communist, maybe a socialist or so, although the leaning towards social authoritarian part is probably correct, although only slightly

Well, I'm all for personal freedom and personal responsibility, don't forget.

2,-1.9. Interesting insight into where people stand. And I guess that makes me pretty rare: I'm alone in the lower right quadrant - both on this board and on the charts on their website. The only one I see in that quadrant is Friedman who I know little about.

Wild! I got ecn=-6.0 ; pol=-3.64, putting me in the same quadrant as the Dalai Lama, Nelson Mandela, Ghandi. So that makes me a communist anarchist? or a leftist-liberterian? I don't think anybody should have to give up their land to the government, unless they are poisoning the water and destroying it for more than a generation.

Hmm... Like Ghandi, only more Pro-Business and and libertarian.

Russ: If you go onto the next page, where it talks about political parties, then you can see you pretty much fit into the lib dem position - which is wierd since well... you don't exactly suit them. (Funny there are no lower left quantrant ones other than the wacko Greens...)

Despite what some would suggest in this forum, I'm my own person. I think for myself. And there are issues that each political party is wrong on and I'll say so.

I think I take the opposite approach to politics from most people. I see most people getting an ideology and attaching it to specific issues, which can blind them to the flaws of the ideology (Communism is a perfect example). I go the other way - I think through an individual issue and let the ideology fall where it may. So while that makes people think I'm a contradiction, I don't see it that way.

A Republican who is pro choice and pro gun control?? WTF??!? :wink:

Well... another funny thing is that the Lib Dems have always been accused of being the party "which steals everyone else's ideas" .

Sure, there is always a negative way to look at it: people who fit into one party or the other well are brainwashed and people who don't just steal everyone else's ideas. I'm more optomistic and idealistic than that though.

I wasn't able to complete the poll, kept getting a dead link at the end. There were questions which I had left unanswered because I didn't like the choices, maybe that explains the dead link.
