The Politics Test

I took Michelle's suggestion and took the Politics Test (link below). I'm so glad that I didn't come out a Libertarian. I hate Libertarians. I once took the "Are You a Libertarian?" test at the Minnesota State Fair. It was a funky plywood board with toggle switches for yes and no, and a column of lights. For each question, you flipped the toggle to the yes or no position, and the light would light up if you gave the Libertarian answer. On the first several questions -- things about privacy, civil liberties, etc -- I was lighting all the lights and getting really worried. Then came the questions about taxes and gun control, etc., and no more lights were lighting. I'm not a Libertarian. Period.

Here are my results (no surprises, although I would have thought I'd have gotten a higher economic liberal score). I'm a tad left of Michelle.

You are a

Social Liberal
(88% permissive)

and an...

Economic Liberal
(6% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Socialist
