    I think the choice given is a bit of cheek. Many of us are neither Liberals or conservatives but grown-ups.

    Those who are unsure might want to take this test.

    My results:
    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 40%. (100% is the most liberal.)
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 60%. (100% is the most conservative.)

    ...Meaning I am much less of a social liberal than I thought. Also, much less of a fiscal conservative than I thought. But then, the test isn't entirely accurate; I know plenty of extremely liberal people who are against legalized prostitution.
    Conservative:
    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 40%.
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 90%.

    I would have hit Libertarian except that I support various laws regarding sex among consenting adults and I support the draft.

    "PERSONAL issues Score is 80%.
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 90%.

    According to your answers, the political group that agrees with you most is...libertarian."

    I believe in government restraint and responsibility in economic matters, and am opposed to debt as anything other than a short-term measure-- to fund wars and fight recessions-- but since I believe in high taxes and strict government regulation of financial institutions, I have to answer that I am a fiscal liberal.

    Despite the bad name the Keystone Kongress are giving fiscal liberalism at the moment.

    This is more difficult for me to answer.

    I have very strong moral and family values, and I believe that the government has a legitimate-- and necessary-- role in helping to uphold them in society. On the other hand, I think that the "traditional values" espoused by so many conservative politicians and commentators are so much spiteful and hypocritical garbage.

    I believe homosexuals should be allowed to marry, but that it should be more difficult for gays and straights alike to legally divorce. I believe that prostitution should remain illegal, and I would like to see laws against it and indecent behavior more rigorously enforced. I object strenuously to couples and single women choosing to have children out of wedlock, but I have no qualms whatsoever against abortion.

    I support the legalization of every drug that serves a medicinal or recreational purpose. I believe that these drugs should be strictly regulated for purity and potency, and that manufacturers should be required to package their drugs with accurate information concerning side effects and dosage guidelines. I also believe that the consequences for being intoxicated in public or while operating a motor vehicle should be more severe, and that substance abuse rehab should be mandatory for people convicted of these offenses.

    As far as gambling, I simply fail to see how slot machines in a casino or poker in a barroom is any different from the State lottery or Church bingo.

    So, on the whole, I consider myself a social conservative, regardless of what other social conservatives might have to say on the matter.

    For the record:
    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 40%.
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 0%.

    More sophisticated two-axis political quizzes usually place me on the far Left and within a point of 0 in either direction on the Libertarian/Authoritarian axis. The test at Moral Politics, which measures political philosophy instead of issue positions, places me almost exactly on the border between Conservatism and Fascism.

    Pretty much what I figured.

    I don't like to box myself into some group, but I don't think I could be more libertarian if I tried.

    Heh. If you still believe that some form of government is necessary to protect your rights, you still have a little more room to go.

    Generally, I see the "Very moderates" as people who don't care about politics.
    Which is for the best. Most people are very moderate which leads to peace and civility. If we were all extremists there would be nothing but fighting. There are things to give a damn about other than immigration and abortion and guns.

    Not all anarchists are communists. Some are genuine libertarians who just believe that no government is even better than the smallest possible government.

    Used to be one, myself.

    Just to post my test results ...

    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 80%.
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 90%.

    No surprise.
