I'm surprised you put this on here.


LIBERAL - usually embrace freedom of choice in personal

matters, but tend to support significant government control of the

economy. They generally support a government-funded "safety net"
to help the disadvantaged, and advocate strict regulation

of business. Liberals tend to favor environmental regulations,

defend civil liberties and free expression, support government action

to promote equality, and tolerate diverse lifestyles.

CENTRISTS espouse a "middle ground" regarding government

control of the economy and personal behavior. Depending on

the issue, they sometimes favor government intervention

and sometimes support individual freedom of choice.

Centrists pride themselves on keeping an open mind,

tend to oppose "political extremes," and emphasize what

they describe as "practical" solutions to problems.

LIBERTARIANS support maximum liberty in both personal and

economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; one

that is limited to protecting individuals from coercion and violence.

Libertarians tend to embrace individual responsibility, oppose

government bureaucracy and taxes, promote private charity, tolerate

diverse lifestyles, support the free market, and defend civil liberties.

Your PERSONAL issues Score is 60%.

Not a real shocker - I've always seemed to score about the same on quizes like this - leaning towards a small "L" libertarian philosophy.

Although I would never in my wildest dreams align myself with the crazies that run the Libertarian party.

.

CONSERVATIVE

CONSERVATIVES tend to favor economic freedom, but frequently

support laws to restrict personal behavior that violates "traditional
values." They oppose excessive government control of business,

while endorsing government action to defend morality and the

traditional family structure. Conservatives usually support a strong

military, oppose bureaucracy and high taxes, favor a free-market

economy, and endorse strong law enforcement.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Fits pretty well, more economically conservative but still very far over for both. I'd agree with it and for how short and fast this quiz is it really nails the important issues and your views.

I tested as a liberal libertarian too, which surprised me. In theory I support small and state government, but I also advocate a fair amount of governmental economic involvement. I am all for taxes (when done well).

Which displays, I think, the differences between theory and practice. Small government? Sure, in theory. But with this country so prone to go the way of the corporation -- which has been the case since at least the mid- to late-19th century, with pockets of relief in wartime, to be general about it -- I favor government intervention and a good amount of fair tax to keep it in check.

I don't like quizzes that set "personal responsibility" as a political barometer, ie. conservatives are in favor people taking responsibility for themselves and their actions while liberals are not. It's mostly semantics, I think, but it bugs me.

These quizez bring out the a lot of the problems with relying on statistics and numerical analysis as an absolute. There is always going to be a middle ground or grey area. Unfortunately in a lot of circumstances it is this grey area which will dominate, which means we cannot make generalisations based on one survey, one statistic and even one impression. Both surveys put me in as a conservative which is true - I voted for John Howard, but there are some issues where I am 100% liberal.

Not yet anyway, and it would be good to keep it that way. I was somewhat amused to find that RBA and I were both rated as "centrists" in the original poll, since I cannot recall us agreeing all that often on the political threads. Maybe that says something about us, or the poll, or both ( I do NOT want to rehash any specific political debates here, I hasten to add).
