I took that quiz long ago and I came up a conservative. For the most part, libertarians and conservatives share the similar ideals when it comes to economic principles. When it comes to social issues, libertarians and liberals are normally on the same page. I think the quiz is a tad bit biased as many more issues should be considered in order to know better where one actually stands.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

If I had to describe Nazi ideology simply, I'd call it extreme nationalism (to the point of xenophobia) as an opposition to communism. The irony of course, is that the many facets of the Nazi state looked a hell of a lot like communism/socialism.
Where the Nazi's (not the idiots you see marching with the KKK) most closely resemble the modern American left is their view on humanism. The huge difference is that American liberals aren't nationalistic. If you combine the American liberal love of intellectual hucksterism and their shrill intolerance for anything that doesn't fit their plan with a strong dose of nationalism ...you'd have your fill of secret police and death camps. Liberals are only an election or two away from that scenario. You put a democrat in the White House, give them control of congress, and have a major attack on CONUS like a nuke in LA or the Gay Bay, and you'll see a totalitarian state the likes of which would make the ghost of Stalin green with envy.
It's fairly easy to find a mainstream Democratic politician in office who is a member of a Communist or Socialist organization (Nancy Pelosi, including her parents), it's kind of hard to find a Republican politician who is a member of the Nazi Party.
