According to your answers, your political philosophy is libertarian.

Libertarians are self-governors in both personal and economic matters. They believe government's only purpose is to protect people from coercion and violence. They value individual responsibility, and tolerate economic and social diversity.

Your Economic Self-Government Score is 60%.



Yeah, pretty much on target.

I score centrist, which makes perfect sense.
According to your answers, your political philosophy is centrist.
Centrist
Centrists favor selective government intervention and emphasize practical solutions to current problems. They tend to keep an open mind on new issues. Many centrists feel that government serves as a check on excessive liberty.

What does the question "Repeal regulations on sex for consenting adults" mean? As the quiz is US-based, I guess it's something about homosexuals, but maybe it refers to incest?

I assumed homosexuals as well as laws against adultry, prostitution and certain types of sex between consenting adults. For example striking sodomy laws.

Do consenting adults ever really engage in incest?

Where do you think Alabama got its state motto from?

"Alabama: Keepin' it in the family since 1815"

Seriously, as taboo as it sounds, yes, some consenting people actually do engage in incest (but if I remember the text correctly, it's because of how individiuals define "incest").

Apparently I am Left-Liberal :)

Prefers self-government in personal matters and central decision-making on economics. Wants government to serve the disadvantaged in the name of fairness. Leftists tolerate social diversity, but work for economic equality.

Apparently I'm 40-40 centrist. I found the questions hard to answer, I wanted clarifications. I guess that's what you get with a short quiz, I wouldn't have taken it if it were long.
