    A fun quiz---simple and quick

    Political Quiz - Try It

    It'll take 10 seconds of your time and provide an interesting insight into your political position. You'll be asked just 10 questions, and then it instantly tells you where you stand politically. It shows your
    position as a red dot on a "political map" so you'll see exactly where you score. The most interesting thing about the Quiz is that it goes beyond the Democrat, Republican, Independent labels.

    See if you land where you think you are politically.

    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.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    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.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Somehow, I ended up a Liberal. Strange, since I'm a card-carrying Whig.

    I didn't realize you had dumped your affiliation with the Know Nothings, Johnny.

    BTW, Millard Fillmore is our country's greatest Whig President. Just sayin'.
