Deal or no deal?

Yeah, I know, I'm getting all political.

Why? Because I feel like it. And I'm a Libertarian, so I believe in individual freedom. So there.

Maybe next week I'll talk about tennis, or my hair, or maybe I'll talk about Cash for Clunkers.

Anyway. There is a quiz you can take that is quite accurate. It's called The World's Smallest Political Quiz. I'm sure you already know your own political leanings, but what the heck. Quizzes are fun!

If you so desire (because we are all free to make our own choices) click on the link above and take the quiz.

Then come back here (if you so choose) and tell me your results!

My result, as you know, was Libertarian.


Libertarian

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.


Which one are you?


Left (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.

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 on

keeping an open mind, tend to oppose "political extremes," and

emphasize what they describe as "practical" solutions to problems.

Right (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.

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.

I'm a Centrist. Seems fairly accurate.

My result was Conservative mostly because I have very strong opinions about governments control of buiness, taxes and the free market. I do feel I am more Libertarian in the personal and moral values arena because they are mucy more subjective (what is "traditional values" anyway?). I tend to voice my opinion and vote on things that affect me directly like taxes.

I am sitting in that Libertarian chair with you - no surprise as I even voted Libertarian last election.

Found you through Karen (Smiling through it All) and oh-so-glad I did! It's always great to find another *conservative leaning* blogger - especially one that is female. Seems we are few and far between!

I am a centrist, but right where the centrist, libertarian, and conservatives meet. I think this is a pretty good representation of me. I am very conservative when it comes to free trade, industry, and a business environment that encourages competition and business growth.

I have to say, I really like the mix of your posts. I love the variety, and you always have a great things to say, politically and otherwise. Keep it coming!

I centrist. And I totally am. I have always considered myself a conservative liberal (lol) so it makes sense that I am in the middle.

Mom on the Run said...

My result was Libertarian, too. I've always said my political philosophy is fairly simple--keep your nose out of my business, keep your hands off my money and take responsibility for yourself.
