    I'll bite,

    --------------

    Conservative/Progressive score: 2
    You are a social conservative. You believe in traditional values, and care first and foremost about your country, your family, and your religion. You dislike the agenda of the left because you see them as trying to destroy these things.


    Capitalist Purist/Social Capitalist score: 0
    You're a Capitalist Purist. You believe that the market should be completely free, and that the invisible hand of the market will make sure that the people get what they want and will do it in the most efficient way possible. You believe in small government, less taxes, and more privatization.


    Libertarian/Authoritarian score: 12
    You're an Authoritarian. You believe that that, left to their own, many people will do immoral or harmful things. You despise drug users, pornography, violence, and all other things that you consider immoral. You also think that security is often more important than protecting rights. You think children need to be protected from seeing these things so it doesn't warp their minds, and that the will of the majority sometimes is more important than the rights of the minority.


    Pacifist/Militarist score: 7
    You're a Moderate. You think that in very rare occasions, the United States should invade a country in order to make the world better by spreading democracy or ending a tyrants rule. You also think that defense is very important, and we shouldn't lower the defense budget. You think that, while the Iraq War probably was a mistake, that we can make the world a better place by sticking with it and spreading democracy in the middle east.

    Overall, you would most likely fit into the category of Hardcore Republican

    What a shock ;)

    Not scared at all.. I have highlighted what I disagree with.. have done this before and the only thing I am fairly consistent on is being a pacifist... these tests draw a lot of conclusions, based on a few answers... to extrapolate these conclusions show the flaws of these types of tests.. maybe or don't care is a poor choice.

    Conservative/Progressive score: 12
    You are a social progressive. You generally consider yourself a humanist first. You probably think that religion and patriotism go too far in society. You probably consider yourself to be a citizen of Earth first rather than a citizen of your country.

    (Actually, on this last point, I do consider myself a citizen of the US first simply because the US is more liberal and progressive than most of the world. If the world truly got together and created a set of laws, the fact is that those laws would be worse than the ones we currently have.)

    Capitalist Purist/Social Capitalist score: 11
    You're a Social Capitalist, you think that, left to its own, Capitalism leaves a lot of people behind. You think that Health Care should be free to all, that the minimum wage should be raised, and that the government should provide jobs to all that are capable of having them. You likely hated the Bush tax cuts, and believe that the middle class has gotten poorer, and the rich have gotten richer over the past several years. The far extreme of social capitalism is socialism.

    Libertarian/Authoritarian score: 5
    You're a Moderate. You think that we all have certain inalienable rights that must be protected, but that sometimes laws need to be made to protect the majority's lives or quality of lives. You might think that the 2nd amendment isn't necessary anymore because letting everyone a gun is extremely dangerous to the community. You might also be against illegal drug use or public pornography because of its possible harmful effects to society.

    Pacifist/Militarist score: 3
    You're a Pacifist. You are angered that the United States thinks it should dominate the world through its military force. You think that the only time war is necessary is when we are in direct danger of being attacked. You also believe the US spends way too much of its money on defense, as we can practically cut it in half and still easily defend ourselves, and use that money to fix all our economic problems.

    Capitalist Purist/Social Capitalist score: 4
    You are a Moderate Capitalist. You support an economy that is by and large a free market, but has public programs to help people who can't help themselves or need a little help. Pretty much you believe in the American economy how it currently is. I don't completely agree with this.


    Libertarian/Authoritarian score: 2
    You are libertarian. You think that the government is making way too many unnecessary laws that are taking away our innate rights. You believe that the government's job is primarily to protect people from harming other people, but after that they should mind their own business, and if we give the government too much power in controlling our lives, it can lead to fascism.

    "And you think GOVERNMENT should provide jobs to all who are willing & capable...."

    WTF??

    NO....NO....NO....No way, no how, not ever!

    That has never been the governments job. YOu wanna job? Get your arse out there and get one yourself like every other capable human being.

    Our economy "leaves people behind"...you gotta be kidding me!:rolleyes:

    Some people leave themselves behind!

    One thing about this is that the definitions are so broad and they project absolutes, which is not how everyone lives their life.

    For example.

    While I might generally agree with this statement, the bold part are stated far to strongly then I actually feel about the topic. I certainly don't despise drug users and I certainly did not "shield" my children growing up. Just as I don't think we need to give up our exclusive rights to the government (or even many of them).

    I could do this for all the categories. While I'm in general agreement, the statements are FAR to strongly stated to accurately reflect my views.
