    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 80%.
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 30%.

    No surprises.

    Took that test and it scored me at 0 on Moral Order and -5 on Moral Rules. Firmly in favor of independance, but right inbetween conformity and non-conformity.

    Re: What Kind of Conservative / Liberal are you?

    I have taken both of the tests mentioned before; as always, the libertarian quiz is one of the worst quizzes I've seen. But anyways:
    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 40%.
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 30%.

    Moral:

    Your scored -4.5 on Moral Order and 8 on Moral Rules.

    I always find this bit amusing:
    0% are close to you.
    0% are more socialist.
    0% are more authoritarian.

    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.
    Your PERSONAL issues Score is 50%. (100% is the most liberal.)
    Your ECONOMIC issues Score is 90%. (100% is the most conservative.)

    Wow...that sounds just about right. I tend to think I am a little more liberal socially than right in the middle, but still pretty close.

    Re: What Kind of Conservative / Liberal are you?

    Is there a category that says, "as long as you leave me and mine alone, I don't care what you do" ??

    Seriously...for those who want to, go live in your socialist utopia, your anarchist paradise, your 1950's-vintage traditionalist society, I'm fine with that and I wish you well...just leave a piece of territory for people like me who mostly just want to be left alone. I expect there's a lot of us, and I think we'd get on fairly well.

    Lawbook for the Land O' Goshin:

    1. Thou shalt not frak with anyone that does not want to be frakked with, unless he is already frakking with you first.
    2. Thou shalt not frak with thy neighbor's house, yard, automobile, paycheck, wallet, cornfield, barns, spouse, child, or anything else that is thy neighbor's, unless thy neighbor is 'ok with that.'
    3. Thou shalt not make any other rules.

    (The attorney's bar exam in the Land O' Goshin lasts fifteen minutes, lol. )

    Sometimes I think we should split the country up into Libertaria, SocialWefare'tannia, Traditionali'stan, Anarchia, and FrakOff'ia...oh yeah, and Texas.

    Then everybody could be happy...for six months anyway, until SocialWelfaretannia decided to "liberate" Libertaria because there weren't enough people working and paying-in back home, Traditionalistan invaded Anarchia to keep their kids from sneaking across the border to the strip joints, and Texas got POed and sent Chuck Norris to sort it all out.

State intervention can be quite good when there's a lot of it in some situations, little in others; also depends where the state intervenes.
    In other words, by your definition, you like regulations that can allow you to prey upon the fruits of other people's labor but oppose those that do the reverse: If the intervention allows you to legally steal other people's property, it is "good." If it allows others to steal your property, then it is "bad."

    You would fit in with corrupt politicians everywhere. Use regulations for personal gain regardless of the consequences and regardless of how much it destroys our economy.

    I believe in regulations against the violation of other people's natural rights. In other words, you don't do bodily harm to other people or mess with their property or their natural rights. Regulations to favor certain people or groups above others are IMMORAL and UNJUST.

    Being a moderate does not neccessarily label you as "wishy-washy." But many people have varying degrees of "wishy-washy" in them. Since "wishy-washy" is all over the map, the average would be a lot closer to moderate than either extreme.

    I prefer the more traditional family values lifestyle. A mum, a dad, few kids, a nice house with a backyard, etc. Dad works, while mum stays at home and looks after the kids.
    I hope you understand "social conservative." A social conservative favors laws that FORCE people to adopt certain social values. You could be a strong social liberal and still adopt your own values for your family.

    Generally, I see the "Very moderates" as people who don't care about politics.
    Just two synonyms for "wishy-washy.".

    Maybe a few. But the vast majority of libertarians favor enough government for:

    National defense.
    Protecting people's natural rights.
    Keeping law and order.

    But NOT messing with the economy, providing social-welfare programs, meddling with other nations, grandiose and needless projects, going miles into debt, etc. And of course, NOT collecting more than a minimal amount of tax to cover the first three things I mentioned.

    Give me a spot in Libertaria and enough machine guns to protect me from any invading SocialWelfare'tannians.
