    I'm curious to see, I aint seen a thread like this yet.

    I know I'm on the right, and obviously belong in the GOP, but I struggle to come up with the proper designation for my ideological beliefs.

    I'm pretty much half neo-conservative, half Libertarian.

    ???

    Fiscal conservative liberal humanitarian with a touch of Libertarian thrown in.

    You are definitely NOT on the right.

    I have done so many of the assessments it's not funny... on the 2 axis liberal/conservative authoritarian/libertarian scale, I usually end up about a 5-6 out of 10 on the right/conservative scale and dead in the middle at 0 on the authoritarian/libertarian scale

    More conservative on the economic issues... more moderate on the social issues... authoritarian in crime and punishment... and libertarian on individual responsibility

    And a strict original intent constitutionalist when it comes to how large govt should be and what government should have it's hands in

    Fiscally conservative and a capitalist down to my toenails.

    That and I'm struggling with the concept of mixing neoconservatism, which is highly authoritarian as an ideology, with libertarianism. :eusa_eh:

    Oh well, we all have our inconsistencies.

    Thanks. I subscribe to alot of their contemporary positions (Israel, foreign policy, etc) while still wishing for fiscally conservative.

    Neocon? Me? No way. I am libertarian in my foreign policy views concerning the use of the military and interfering in other nations business.

    I am me and there is no way you can fit me into either major pigeonhole.
