    Geez: NeoCon Republican

    4 - Moderate Conservative Progressive vs Conservative


    If you had score was from 4 to 8, you're a social moderate. You think the progressive movement has a lot of good ideas, but is sometimes too extreme in its ways. You probably don't like how social conservatives are always putting the black man/woman/homosexual down, but you also probably don't think its fair to give minorities an unfair advantage in life either.


    0 - Anarcho-Capitalist


    If your score was from 0 to 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 the people get what they want and will do it in the most efficient way possible.� You believe in small government, less taxes, and more privatization.

    4 - Libertarian-leaning

    Libertarian vs Authoritarian

    If your score was from 4 to 8, you're a Moderate. You think that we all have certain inalienable rights that must be protected, but that sometimes laws need to be made to protect the majority's lives or quality of lives.� You might think that the 2nd amendment isn't necessary anymore because letting everyone a gun is extremely dangerous to the community. You might also be against illegal drug use or public pornography because of its possible harmful effects to society.

    10 - Militarist

    Pacifist vs Militarist

    If your score was from 9 to 12, you're a Militarist. You believe that since the United States has so much power in the world, it has a responsibility to keep the world safe. You think that if the US does not exert its power in the world, it may eventually lose its power, and that we can not look weak in the face of terrorists, and must take them out where they live.

    I'm suprised! I usually score as a Libertarian. I noticed the results seemed to suggest that about 50% did score as some sort of Libertarian!

    When are we ever gonna stop this charade and begin the real coming of the LP. Not doing it has gotton us to this point!

    Progressive/Conservative Score 3 Moderate Conservative

    If your score was from 0 to 3, you're a conservative (social conservative that is). You believe in traditional values, and don't want the popular media telling you how to think or what to do. You are probably a religious person who believes that the bible is a very good judge of what is right and what is wrong.

    Capitalist Purist/Social Capitalist Score 1 - Capitalist Purist

    If your score was from 0 to 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 the people get what they want and will do it in the most efficient way possible. You believe in small government, less taxes, and more privatization.

    Libertarian/Authoritarian Score 6 - Moderate

    If your score was from 4 to 8, you're a Moderate. You think that we all have certain inalienable rights that must be protected, but that sometimes laws need to be made to protect the majority's lives or quality of lives. You might think that the 2nd amendment isn't necessary anymore because letting everyone a gun is extremely dangerous to the community. You might also be against illegal drug use or public pornography because of its possible harmful effects to society.

    Pacifist/Militarist Score 6 - Defense Moderate

    If your score was from 4 to 8, you're a Moderate. You think that in very rare occasions, the United States should invade a country in order to make the world better by spreading democracy or ending a tyrants rule. You also think that defense is very important, and we shouldn't lower the defense budget. You think that, while the Iraq War probably was a mistake, that we can make the world a better place by sticking with it and spreading democracy in the middle east.



    You are a Hardcore Republican

    Im a Neo Con apparently. I think the poll asks some really bad questions. Like:

    3. Should the US Invade Iran/Syria/NorthKorea?

    I mean there are so many different factors for each nation. not to mention timing issues. its way to vague.

    Yeah like for instance if I believe we should simply launch two nuclear warheads from an Indian Ocean based SSBN,into each of the three, that technically is not an invasion. Very vague!

    And ................. you are a neo con man! Just kidding!

    HardCore Libertarian!:rofl:

    Honestly, I had to answer the questions the way I felt would reflect the truth of my political standing, but not necessarily my view.

    For example:
    "Should gay marriage be legalized?"
    Your choices, of course, are yes, no, & maybe.

    The "duh" libertarian answer is yes, but that isn't really my position on things. I don't think the "state" in any form should be recognizing marriage except as a contract between two people. Marriage, at its most basic level, is simply a contract between two people & perhaps, if they choose to include him/her/them, God. Barring God's direct personal involvement in a divorce, the only time the "state" should have anything to do with it is to help divide the accumulated property & children when the two married people decided their contract was a bunch of lies.:eusa_whistle:


    EDIT: My scores for each little department were rather different than Pegwinn's... FWIW.

    I don't think marriage in any form is any of the damn .govs business at all. There should be nothing (legally) other than individuals for benifits and tax purposes. Marriage is a religious thing and should be left to the churches.

    I didn't know my scores were any benchmark. Hmmm is that good or bad?

    :rofl:
