How would describe your political views?

Postby soulsforsale5s » Wed Aug 22, 2007 1:40 am

Take this quiz to truely figure out what political label could be attached to you:

Then post what you are!

I'm a libertarian. The only views I strayed on was National ID (I support it) and legalization of drugs (I only support marijuana legalization).

According to the quiz-thing, I'm borderline Centrist-Liberal... I do agree about when it says I'm into practical solutions, because I am...

:wink:

Green party for the win!

Just kidding...I'm not into siding with any party- I'll vote for what I think is best for the common (lower-class) people like me.

Says I'm a Centrists.

I am NOT a republican, democrate, or any other damn thing.

I don't stand for all things in one group, I need to mix my views to what I think is right and justified.

Mm, I fell into the category of non-Centrist Liberal, even though I was also pretty close to being a Libertarian. Not that surprising, really.

I'm a Centrist, barely shying away from the liberal side.

I have to say though...

Well...I do recall a zombie running for class president last year...it was great. My friends and I voted for Zombie Bob last year...he's a lot more responsible than the candidates...

I got centrist, but I was very borderline Left Liberal and Statist.


Here's how close it was:

Well, for the last General Election, I voted Lib Dem, which I know is a bad idea but I'd rather rape my spider plant than vote Labour or Conservative.

I have absulutely no idea what lable that quiz of yours would give me, but I'd describe myself as a libertainian with a conscience.
I agree with all the social issues of libertanianism, because there's enough evidence that laws only exasperate most existing problems, but I'm also into socialised health, buisiness regulations, benefits for the poor and total government controll of all buisinesses.
Some idiots think that this makes me a communist. as do some very inteligent people. But befor I'd ever wear the communist lable, it'd have to be restored to the beautiful political position it used to be before Marx got his gruby german hands on it and turned it into a perversion of all it stood for with his injections of hatred to the rich and the lack of social freedom he espoused. The politics of the USSR and China were so much better than those of totalitarian ragimes like those of the Tsars and kings because they had the communist lable on them! It made all the killing and inequality all better to know you were doing it to sully the name of communism!
I call myself a libertanian because socialism will never get in without a NAZI esque leader, but libs might. Even though they arn't in my country :evil:

According to the test I'm very liberal, perhaps even to the point of some light anarchy. I would prefer to keep the gov. small and simple.

I understand that it's not exactly a bad idea to have something like a gov. to place certain things in order... but even with that said there is a line. I believe there are certain things that people really do need to do on their own and need to be free to do it on their own. I believe there's a lot of things that shouldn't be censored to the degree that we currently have, but neither should it be totally blunt unless you want to end up screwed on the other end of the stick. There is something to say about the collective, but theres also a lot to say about the individual. I don't see a point in favoring one over the other when the reality is that BOTH are very much needed for many things. The idea of the individual is just as important as the idea of the collective for humanity is able to function as both, also the individual possesses the power to save or destroy a collective, it also works the other way around.

That quiz isn't very thorough so I think it placed me a little farther left than I actually am. But I won't deny my liberal leanings.

I believe it is absolutely necessary for the government to have oversight over the private sector when public safety is at all at risk. (Hence my position on Universal Health Care.) The government also has the responsibility to ensure fair, but open trade. ("Free Trade" does not equal "fair trade", people.) The government should also be responsible for those things that benefit the greater good, yet are too risky (financially) or not profitable enough to entrust to the private sector. (For example, public ownership of land for wildlife habitat and recreation. Imagine how much the entrance fee to your favorite national park would go up if someone had to make a profit off of it.)

Fundamental to my political views is that government cannot be trusted without proper oversight. Transparency prevents corruption. If we, the people, can see exactly what the government does with our money, we can sniff out those bad apples that spring up from time to time. (I mean seriously, Ted Stevens; $315 million for a bridge to an island with less than a hundred people on it?!)

I could care less about those stupid wedge issues politicians like to bring up when it suits them. I don't vote on those issues, so save your breath. I also hate being pandered to. (I'm looking at you, Hillary. You too, Rudy. How is it that you two are qualified for the Presidency again?) I also hate the phonies. George W. Bush is the best example. Here we have an Ivy League elitist born and raised in the northeast with a silver spoon so far down his throat, he farts dollar coins suddenly becoming a good ol' boy, Reagan-wannabe, 'cowboy' governor of a southern state. Seriously, if Al Gore hadn't been such a complete tool and his boss hadn't been such a horn-ball, Bush would've been trounced in 2000.

But that's beside the point that America got screwed out of what would've been the best President to have in the first half of this decade. I speak of course of John McCain. My favorite Republican. Even today, with his position on Iraq, I still like him for what he's done in his career. This is a smart man; an experienced man and an honest man and he was the most qualified candidate to run this country in 2000. But thanks to Karl Rove's lie machine and a bunch of bat-shit crazy Christians who like being pandered to, we got stuck with that consonant near the end of the alphabet. So that close 2000 election wouldn't have been between a douche and some turd, but a douche and a winner. The world today would be entirely different and, in my opinion, much better place had John McCain beaten Bush in 2000. If only I was eligible to vote and lived in a state with a super-early primary back then...

That quiz is EXTREMELY biased towards libertarians. Try agreeing with everything, as the questions lead you to do, and see your result.

A more accurate in depth political quiz is the Political Compass test, http://politicalcompass.org/

btw, I got libertarian :\

That political compass test landed me in Ghandi's vicinity, interestingly enough.
