    I'm quite aware of the difference, BG. However, after reading some of the posts on this board, it's abundantly clear that a fairly large share of those claiming to be "libertarians," aren't even close. Would it be fair to say that an overwhelming percentage of those who call themselves "Tea Party" consider themselves to be "libertarians." I'd suggest you explain the difference to them, not me. Most of them want a cafeteria style of it. They want to there to be "complete individual freedom," that is, just as long as you agree with them on everything. If you don't...

    Not so much. No "complete individual freedom" for you.

    Re: New Political Compass

    There are very few real libertarians on this board. But they exist.

    I hate that these tests don't separate personal morality from political morality. For instance, I think that smoking and drugs are great evils that should be eradicated. But should a government enforce it? I don't think so. Just the first question of that quiz is so vague to be absolutely meaningless. I don't even know how to answer it, since I think that corporations serve humanity.

    According to the first test, I am a libertarian, pretty solidly. I think any of the libertarians will find that amusing.

    By the way, what exactly is a "real" libertarian?

    Re: New Political Compass

    I think of the term libertarian in terms of the popular use of the word: small government. Meaning, those that oppose the central bank, those that oppose social spending, etc. Many here claim to be libertarians, but only a handful actually support those things.

    According to the test it says I am a liberal-libertarian. And I'm sure most liberals would find that amusing as well.

    I don't think the test accurately depicts someone's place on the spectrum.
