Shortest Ever Political Quiz

John and I have tried making fun plans for the weekend, but the rain is really getting in the way. I have not given up hope, but in light of a light posting week, here goes another quiz:

Take the quiz HERE.

Do you agree with your results?
~
I am a LIBERAL.
~
LIBERALS 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.

Other Political Philosophies

Right (Conservative)

Conservatives tend to favor economic freedom, but frequently
support laws to restrict personal behavior that violates "traditionalvalues." 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.


Libertarian


Libertarians support maximum liberty in both personal and
economic matters. They advocate a much smaller government; onethat 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.


Centrist

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 onkeeping an open mind, tend to oppose "political extremes," and
emphasize what they describe as "practical" solutions to problems.

Statist (Big Government)

Statists want government to have a great deal of power over the
economy and individual behavior. They frequently doubt whether
economic liberty and individual freedom are practical options in
today's world. Statists tend to distrust the free market, support
high taxes and centralized planning of the economy, oppose
diverse lifestyles, and question the importance of civil liberties.
