Political Quizzes

Do political quizzes really tell us alot about what we believe?  I’ve taken various quizzes, some placed me as a moderate/conservative, while some have placed me as a libertarian.  Although, I have never been placed as a democrat, some in my family would blow a gasket if that should ever happen.

I just got done taking a political quiz on PoliticalQuiz.net, and these were my results:

Conservative/Progressive sore: 4

You are a social moderate.  You think the progressive movement is overall well meaning, but goes too far.  On issues like abortion and affirmative action, you see the negatives of both extremes on both issues.  You probably value religion but think it should play a seperate part from government.

Capitalist Purist/Social Capitalist score: 3

You’re a Capitalist Purist.  You believe that the market should be completely free, and that the invisible hand of the market will make sure that people will get what they want and do it in the most efficient way possible.  You believe in less government, less taxes, and more privatization.

Libertarian/Authoritarian score:  0

You are a libertarian.  You think that the government is making way too many unnecessaru laws that are taking away our innate rights.  You believe that the government’s job is to primarily protect people from harming other people, but after that they should mind their own buisness, and if we give the government too much power in controlling our live, it can lead to facism.

Pacifist/Militarist score:  1

You’re a Pacifist.  You are angered that the United States thinks that it should dominate the world through its military force.  You think that the only time that war is necessary is when we are in direct danger of being attacked.  You also believe that the United States spend too much money on defense, as we can practically cut it in half and still defend ourselves, and use that money to fix our economic problems.  Overall, you probably fit into the category of Hardcore Libertarian.

Analysis:  This really is the first quiz that I have taken that gives me a narrative on the issues at hand and where I most likely stand.  This is a great test that I recommend for everyone.
